Boulevard Pro Brings ‘Goodwill’ to Upstate NY Church

goodwill-pastor-josh-stewart-and-dale-girardin-td-low.jpeg

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Boulevard Professional (Oradell, N.J.) recently installed a NEXO GEO S12 line array system along with Yamaha LS9-32 and SB168-ES Stage Box at the Goodwill Church in Montgomery, New York. Several years ago, the company was called in to design and install a state-of-the-art sound system for a new worship space. Unexpectedly, funding was cut and it appeared the installation would be placed on the back burner. In a successful fund raising mission by members of church, the goal required to purchase and install a new system had been met, and by the fall of last year, work had begun.

The 700-seat contemporary church has a diverse, active congregation with 1,000 in attendance each week. A full band and six vocalists accompany the sermons. “It was very apparent early on that a new system for Goodwill Church would not just be for spoken word,� states James Cioffi, more

The Michael Fowler Centre Auditorium in New Zealand features a new JBL CBT Series column speaker configuration.

NORTHRIDGE, California – The 2,210-seat Michael Fowler Centre Auditorium in New Zealand is a jewel of a concert hall, with a distinctive 3-level glass façade and interior detailing of native timbers and Italian marble. The 2-level, oval-shaped auditorium’s acoustics are ideal for classical music concerts, and the venue is also used for events, meetings, tradeshows and other functions.

“The originally installed sound system consisted of many small loudspeakers, the coverage wasn’t uniform, and the frequency response varied depending on where you were sitting, among other problems,� noted Sam Johnston, Operations Manager of AV company Multi-Media Systems Ltd. of New Zealand.

Working with Matt Chapman and Marcus Wilson of Jands New Zealand (HARMAN’s local distributor), Johnston and more
