St. Andrews Lutheran Makes Sound Improvements With L-ACOUSTICS

Twin Cities-area house of worship increases intelligibility and presence with KIVA

MAHTOMEDI, Minnesota – November 2012 — L-ACOUSTICS Certified Provider Audio Video Electronics (AVE) of Maple Grove, Minnesota, reports that it recently installed an L-ACOUSTICS KIVA loudspeaker system at St. Andrews Lutheran Church in nearby Mahtomedi.

According to AVE Vice President Kevin Crow, “St. Andrews has a beautiful 1,200-seat sanctuary with a nearly five second reverb time, so going into this project, we knew that speech intelligibility was one of our primary issues of concern. Furthermore, with an 80-member choir, chamber group and huge pipe organ, St. Andrews’ services feature quite an emphasis on music as well, and they were wanting to have it feel more ‘present’ in the sanctuary seating areas.”

With those requirements in mind, AVE specified an L-ACOUSTICS line source system featuring left and right arrays each comprised of nine KIVA enclosures flown adjacent to three KILO low-frequency extension cabinets. A pair of SB18i subs are flown behind each KIVA array for true LF reproduction, and all systems are powered and processed by a total of four LA8 amplified controllers.

“With the previous loudspeaker system, the sound always felt rather distant out in the pews,” Crow recalls. “Not anymore. The KIVA-KILO arrays immerse the congregation in audio that is both wonderfully full and naturally clear. It’s an amazing setup that is perfectly matched for this client, and everyone there is extremely pleased with the results.”
