Iconyx Tames a Timeless Chamber

Dobbs Ferry, NY – March 2014…  Overlooking the Hudson River just minutes away from Manhattan, Mercy College was founded in 1950 by the Sisters of Mercy. In 1961 it became a four-year college offering baccalaureate degrees. The school’s stellar reputation draws students from all over the country, and Mercy College was featured in the book “Cool Colleges” as one of the most exciting schools in the United States.

The Rotunda is an important focus for all Mercy students and is a popular multi-purpose activity center. The historic structure was a former house of worship, and carries with it both the decor and the sonic character of a majestic old cathedral. Its soaring brick walls, stained glass windows and high, rounded shape and domed ceiling create a natural reverberance that makes even normal conversation nearly impossible.

Leo Garrison of Metro Sound Pros elaborates, “Picture a circle, with 50 ft stone walls, eight pillars and a massive video wall. The space is a natural reverb chamber.” Depending on the event, a podium can be set up in any part of the room, creating an even greater challenge — designing a system that could achieve audio clarity amid this ever changing footprint.

Metro Sound Pros designed a solution utilizing a creative application of Renkus-Heinz Iconyx Series IC7-II manually steered column arrays. Four pairs of columns are mounted at 90 degrees from each other, providing selectable coverage from any direction. The Iconyx steered beam technology enables the sound to be focused on the audience, and away from the walls, windows, and other problematic surfaces.

As Garrison explains, while the assignment was to deliver coverage and intelligibility, the building’s landmark status meant that aesthetics trumped all else. “Protecting the room’s historic architecture was of utmost importance,” he states. “The profile of the IC7s are so small and slim, they just blend right in.”

Garrison concludes, “With a project like this one, we always face a balance between the need to preserve the natural beauty of the architecture, and the need to create a space that is functional. The integration of the Iconyx series into the Mercy College Rotunda gave us the performance and intelligibility we needed, while maintaining the building’s classic aesthetics. They were a great choice.”

VARIA Fills Calvary Chapel with Exquisite Sound

Chattanooga, TN – March 2014…Leaving a rental space for a place of their own was a big step for  Calvary Chapel. Their new campus sits amongst the hustle and bustle of downtown Chattanooga, close to restaurants, hotels, shops and grocery stores, making Calvary Chapel now a visible and accessible part of the community.

In fact, Calvary Chapel’s new home is a converted Bi-Lo grocery store, reminiscent of its former self through the concrete floor and open corrugated metal ceiling. Folding this industrial edge into their contemporary approach, Calvary Chapel cleared the columns and raised the roof, opening up the 100 by 100 square foot space and adding a bit of acoustical treatment to the side walls.

The space seats 750-800 people, in typical fan shaped sanctuary seating, with one center aisle and two on either side. The services are always packed, from Saturday night praise band to late Sunday morning service, where they have an extra 150-200 people in overflow areas, connected via fiber.

Their contemporary services, complete with amplified instruments, fit well into this unique, industrious and sleek aesthetic. Making it sound as good as it looks, with hard surfaced, square dimensions, was a whole other issue; one that couldn’t be solved with a one-size-fits-all solution.

“It was pretty rough when they moved in there three or four years ago,” says Tracy Miller of Chattanooga-based DB Technologies. Calvary Chapel called Miller in for a consultation about a year ago, needing his help in taming and utilizing this new space. Miller had previously demoed the Renkus-Heinz PN102 line arrays in the space, but quickly realized he needed a different approach. “With the liveliness of this particular room, a traditional line array wasn’t the right thing. There was just too much sound bouncing around that place.”

What Miller and Calvary Chapel needed was a line array that could be tailored to fit their needs precisely; from rock bands to sermons, without allowing the square, hard barriers of the Chapel to shape the sound. “I had been wanting to try out the VARIA and this seemed like a good opportunity,” Miller says. “We set up a demo, and it was just night and day. With the VARIA array, we were able to taper the coverage and focus the sound on the seating area, without hitting all those walls and reflective surfaces.”

With left and right three-cabinet arrays of narrow, transitional and wide dispersion boxes, VARIA also fits in well with the pre-existing design of the space, complementing both the industrial and the sleek aesthetics. And, says Miller, the dramatic shift in sound quality made the job easier, even for the Chapel’s new sound guy. “He’s been just getting up to speed on the Roland M400 console, and he usually asks a lot of questions. But we went from nobody in the room to a packed house and it was so smooth, I did not have to go to the console even once.”

Miller recalls, “after the first service, I got a text: ‘we want to keep these.’ And I had the feeling that would be the case.”

New York’s Pig ‘n’ Whistle Sounds Better than Ever with Renkus-Heinz

New York, NY – March 2014… In a city with no shortage of Irish pubs, the Pig ‘n’ Whistle Murray Hill truly stands out. At once unique and familiar, it’s a warm, welcoming space where neighborhood residents and visitors alike can gather, chat, enjoy a drink, and watch their favorite game.

But the room’s cozy confines can present some acoustical challenges, with its long, narrow dimensions and high-beamed ceilings making it difficult to achieve the right balance of sound across the entire space. “It’s a relatively narrow room, which makes it hard to provide consistent coverage,” explains John Paturno of Rego Park, NY-based Starview Audio. “The high ceilings add to the boominess.”

The demand was for a budget conscious, high quality sound system that would meet the pub’s needs for intelligibility and tight pattern control. Starview selected a system centered on ten Renkus-Heinz CFX 61 two-way Complex Conic loudspeakers. Six speakers cover the pub area in front, with the remaining four serving the rear dining space. The system is powered by Powersoft amplification, with processing handled by Symetrix Solus 8.

“The CFX61’s coverage pattern is very tight and very accurate, and gives us seamless coverage from box to box with wider spacing between the cabinets,” offers Paturno. “That translates to fewer speakers than we would have needed to achieve this degree of consistency with a different solution.”

Paturno adds, “they needed a system that could provide a comfortable level of background music for the day crowd, but had the capability to get loud enough for the sports crowd. The CFX61 delivers great speech intelligibility, which is great when there’s a full house watching the game.”

Clearly, the new system has more than met the pub’s needs. “Everyone involved is truly pleased with the results,” Paturno reports.

Crestview Church Gets Creative with PreSonus

Boulder, CO – March 2014… For Greig Hess, music is an indispensible part of the worship experience. As Worship Pastor at Boulder’s Crestview Church, Hess has long been a strong advocate in creating a contemporary service that inspires through music. And as he explains, PreSonus gear has made a tremendous impact on his work.

“I originally got an AudioBox 1818VSL for our small project studio about a year now,” he says. “I began using it on some live events as well, and I was really impressed with it. So we recently got a StudioLive 24.4.2 console for the sanctuary, and it’s dramatically changed the way we create and record our music.”

Hess says the StudioLive has enabled them to radically streamline their live service production. “The processing power in the StudioLive is equal to several times the outboard gear we had before — we can have a compressor and effects on every channel if we need to. Plus we were able to remove a whole rack of gear from Front of House. And the ability to save full snapshots of everything has done amazing things for our workflow.”

As has the ability to record the entire mix, he observes. “We use Capture to record a multitrack of our live service. With a volunteer staff, it’s great because when you are training a new sound guy you can use it to show them how to run the console, how to add effects, what different things sound like. And you’re doing it in an empty room, without the pressure of a live service.”

In fact, he adds, it’s a useful thing even for a more experienced mixer. “I’m usually on stage playing, and working with a Capture session gives me a chance to get familiar with the board, so I know what to ask for when I need something. It’s also great for rehearsals — we use it to control the mix from the stage, which enables us to schedule rehearsals without having to have a sound guy present.”

Not surprisingly, those Capture sessions have seeded other creative projects as well. “We load the files into Studio One and do some additional production, add instruments and do some sweetening to the tracks,” he says. “You can do some amazing things in Studio One.”

The sanctuary is outfitted with Renkus-Heinz TRX81 and TRX62H two way loudspeakers, powered by Crest and Crown amplification. A Hear Back personal monitoring system drives the musicians’ in-ear systems. And Hess reports he’s also picked up an AudioBox USB to use when playing tracks and loops from his laptop on stage.

Meanwhile, he says, the AudioBox 1818VSL has continued to be a workhorse on its own. “We’ve been using the AudioBox 1818 VSL in our Fellowship hall. It’s enabled us to add a 16-input interface in there, with no fuss and no setup woes. Sometimes we do video projects, and the Audiobox 1818VSL makes a great portable setup we can take anywhere. And I’m already thinking about how we can use it when we do retreats. I can basically set it all up for them here, configure it all the way they will be using it, and they can take it with them and not have to worry about needing a sound guy.”

Hess concludes, “for a smaller church like ours, PreSonus gear has really given us an edge. It’s affordable, it’s easy to use, and it gives us access to the kind of technology that only the really big churches used to be able to afford.”

Classic St. Louis Church Trades 12 For 1 with Iconyx

Florrisant, MO – March 2014… One of the first settlements in what would become the State of Missouri, Florrisant was founded in the 18th century by French settlers. Until the late 19th century, French was the village’s predominant language — except for a small population of German settlers in the southern part of town. Seeking a church that spoke their language, in 1866 a handful of those German families founded the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The church’s grand old Gothic style sanctuary has been a landmark on Jefferson Street since 1893. The 600 seat hall was designed in the spirit of the great cathedrals, with soaring walls, stone floors, high arched ceilings, and ornate stained glass windows. It’s a lush, reverberant setting for choir and organ, but problematic for spoken word intelligibility.

“Although it’s not a large room, its acoustical character is very much like that of a cathedral,” explains Gary Haselhorst, President of Valley Park, MO-based Cignal Systems. “Their issues are similar to that of a cathedral, on a smaller scale — it’s a very reverberant space, and intelligibility suffers.” The church’s previous sound system, with 12 pillar-mounted cabinets, only added to the cacophony.

Cignal removed the existing speakers and replaced them with a single Iconyx digitally steered line array column from Renkus-Heinz. “We had recently used the Iconyx in the St. Louis Basilica, and when the monsignors heard how well it worked in the cathedral, they knew there was hope for theirs as well.”

A single IC24-R-II column is mounted on a front pillar, just left of the altar. “We were able to achieve very uniform coverage with just one speaker,” says Haselhorst. “We ordered the cabinet painted to match the brickwork, and the Monsignor’s sister painted some marbled accents on it. It blends in almost invisibly with the architecture.”

Haselhorst reports the system has solved the room’s intelligibility problems and more. “They run the praise band through the Iconyx as well, and it sounds great,” he says. “We took out twelve speakers and replaced them with one Iconyx. They’re very pleased.”

Long Beach Arena’s Pacific Ballroom is Covered by Renkus-Heinz

Long Beach, CA – February 2014…Covered on the outside by one of the world’s largest murals, “Planet Ocean,” The Long Beach Arena is an unmistakable part of the city’s skyline. Built in the early 1960s as part of the greater Long Beach Convention Center, the Arena is also an unrivaled cornerstone of entertainment in Southern California, hosting events ranging from the first NHL game in 1967 and the 1984 Olympic volleyball tournaments, to acts as diverse as Cirque Du Soleil, Iron Maiden, Run-D.M.C and Disney on Ice.

The Arena’s Pacific Ballroom, along with the rest of the Convention Center, has recently reopened after a massive series of renovations. The Ballroom’s new state-of-the-art audio, lighting, and curtaining system — the largest ceiling grid in the country — has been recognized by Venues Today magazine with an Ops and Tech Award. The system has helped to transform the Arena into even more of a multi-functional venue, enabling the 46,000 sq. foot, 200 foot long elliptical floor to be partitioned for use without the surrounding arena seating, and arranged in a wide range of configurations.

But while the curtain does wonders to partition and conceal the arena seating and frame the flat floor, it does little for the acoustics of the space. Indeed, the Arena’s vast acoustics presented a challenge in finding a sound system flexible enough to meet the demands of its wide-ranging roster of events.

Working with architectural firm John Fisher & Associates, engineering firm JR Clancy, and installers Pro Sound, Burbank, CA-based Electronsonic created an audio system to address the Arena’s diverse needs. The system, which mounts on a moveable ceiling grid, comprises left and right hangs of ten Renkus-Heinz IC2 digitally steerable array cabinets per side. Each array is augmented by eight IC118S subwoofers for low frequency power and punch. As Electrosonics Andy Batwinas explains, it’s a concept that has never really been implemented on this scale.

“The grid itself can lower to 30 feet for smaller events, and raise up to 70 feet for games and larger events,” says Batwinas. A series of connection points allow the speaker arrays to move around the grid depending on the desired configuration. Once in place, the IC2 arrays’ digitally steered beam technology enables them to be configured to cover only the areas needed, steering sound away from the hall’s reflective outer areas. The grid can also lowered and removed for events like a Cirque Du Soleil show, providing full access to the 75-foot ceiling, and the IC2 arrays can be removed from the grid and ground stacked as well.

“The IC2 delivers such even sound pressure level from front to back,” Batwinas says. “When we did the demo, it was set up at the far end of the arena and shot down the long way. You could walk the whole space, cover the floor, and keep it a solid 98 db SPL from one side to the other.”

The system is networked using RHAON control, enabling the Arena’s technical crew to implement preset coverage configurations for different event needs, and making quick changeovers possible with the press of a button.

“The IC2 steered beam technology made it a vastly superior alternative to a standard line array system,” Batwinas observes. “With the IC2 you can aim the sound down to the floor so it’s not bouncing off the architecture.”

Based on the success of the IC2 system, a Renkus-Heinz system of 18 VARIA modular point source arrays and 12 VA15S subwoofers was added to cover the Arena’s 19,000 square foot Lobby area and 29,000 square foot concourse. The VARIA’s modular design and variable dispersion patterns enable the systems to be custom configured for the area’s different ballrooms, theaters, halls, and atrium. Additionally, 16 CFX81 loudspeakers were installed in the ceiling of the Arena’s lobby for added foreground coverage.

The Long Beach Arena’s grand re-opening on November 20, 2013 met with rave reviews, and the Ballroom boasts a full calendar and an exciting 2014.

Sochi Olympics Sound Better with Renkus-Heinz

Sochi, Russia – February 2014… The Sochi Olympics have gone to the history books, and as is always the case, the brief few days the games are held belies the immense time and effort preparing for them. In Sochi, a dozen new world-class venues have been erected for the games, and outfitted with high-performance audio, video, and lighting systems.

Avallon, Ltd of Moscow designed and installed multiple Renkus-Heinz systems in no fewer than five Olympic venues. The most prominent project was the Arena Isberg, home to the figure skating and short track competitions. As Avallon President Sergey Vashchenko explains, it was also the most challenging.

“Since music is such an important part of the performance, figure skating competitions have some of the most stringent sound requirements,” says Vashchenko. “Even after working with the building’s designers to reduce the reverb time from 7.5 to 3.2 seconds, we still knew we need to create a system with great performance and tight pattern control, to keep the reflections under control.”

The audience seating is covered by eight each Renkus-Heinz CEM61 and CEM62 high power CoEntrant mid-high modules, with eight CE-3TLO subs covering low frequency reinforcement. The systems are hung around a central Media-LCD display. Ten CT7M TRAP boxes provide music to the skaters on the ice.

“During the EASE acoustic modeling phase, we looked at a number of options, including more traditional line arrays,” says Vashchenko. “But we were not happy with the difference in sound quality between the audience and the ice. Moreover, there was some concern that a line array might block the sightlines for some of the upper-level seating. The optimal solution was to mount all the speakers on the video screen frameworks, and the Renkus-Heinz CEM and CT series speakers offered coverage patterns that suited this arrangement very well.”

Power and signal processing for the systems is covered by Dynacord DSA-series multichannel amplifiers and P64 matrix processors. Amps and DSP are located within the signage frameworks, to reduce cable runs and assure low impedance. Audio signal is fed via fiber from the Stage Tec Auratux 16-T2Z digital console. “We assembled the entire system within the framework while it was on the ground, which made things a bit easier,” says Vashchenko.

Acoustical measurements were carried out by consultant Yury Indlin of ADI in Irkutsk. Vashchenko designed the system, with installation and commissioning by Avallon’s Vladislav Azarov.

“During the competition, sound levels are limited to 85-87dB,” says Vashchenko. “But during testing we were able to achieve levels of 103dB, with even coverage across the entire facility.”

At the Arena Fischt, home of the Olympics Opening and Closing ceremonies, Avallon installed six Iconyx IC7-II mechanically steered array systems in the VIP lobby, as well as a pair of PNX-82 two-way Complex Conic loudspeakers in the Press Center. And the Training Centers for Hockey and Figure Skating are both outfitted with multiple TRX151 two-way systems.

“It was a great pleasure to work with the Renkus-Heinz system,” remarked Vladislav Azarov. “I’ve heard many good things about their patented wave guides, but this was my first experience using their products on a large-scale project, and it was awesome. I’ve had so many great comments about the sound quality, from the athletes, from the spectators, and even from the heads of the Olympic Committee.”

Cairo’s St. Therese Basilica Gets Mackie HDA

Cairo, Egypt , February 2014…With more than 22 million inhabitants, the city of Cairo is rich in history and culture. In a region renowned as the birthplace of most of today’s religions, the sprawling metropolis on the banks of the Nile River is dotted with mosques, cathedrals, and houses of worship large and small.

The Basilica of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus is one of the more remarkable Catholic churches in the region. Named for one of the church’s early French missionaries, the Basilica is a massive Byzantine style structure adorned with Arabic-Egyptian ornamentation. Constructed in 1939, it served for many years as a stopover for missionaries on their way to the East. Today, it attracts a great number of visitors, many of them foreign tourists.

As with many of the grand basilicas, the room’s acoustics have long been a challenge. Soaring walls, marble floors, wooden pews, and a massive 80-foot (25 meter) high dome ringed with windows are just the beginning of a highly reflective environment that makes intelligibility nearly impossible. The walls of the church are decorated with an ornate mosaic which, while beautiful to behold, only adds to the reflectivity of the space.

Egyptian audio distributors Al Fanny Trading were called in to help solve the Basilica’s sonic challenges, and installed a system based around four of Mackie’s HDA two-way arrayable powered loudspeakers. As Al Fanny’s Rami Saad explains, the church’s previous system was simply not up to the task.

“They had a system of ten speakers installed on the columns, but the sound quality was very poor,” Saad says. “People could not understand the sermon, and the balance between the choir and the spoken word was very poor.”

Saad says the HDA system was selected not just for its power, but for its pattern control. “It was no problem to find speakers that were loud, or speakers with good sound quality,” he explains. “The challenge was to find speakers that could direct the sound toward the people, not toward the walls. The HDA speakers did exactly that, and very well.”

The choir area has been equipped with several SRM450v2 loudspeakers for monitoring. “The choir are standing higher on a platform, and the sound coming out of the main speakers didn’t really provide them with enough coverage,” says Saad. “The SRM speakers are a great solution.”

As the final piece to the sound system, Al Fanny installed a Mackie Onyx 24.4-Bus console. “The Onyx console sounds wonderful — very clean and clear,” says Saad. “The system has made a big difference for them already, and everyone is very pleased.”

Landmark Oakland Church Gets VARIA

Oakland, CA – February 2014… Bishop Carl Smith is on a mission, and he’s unapologetic. The members of New Birth Church are encouraged not only to attend church, but to become the church by actively working to improve the quality of the lives of those they touch.

Housed in a mid-19th century Catholic Cathedral, New Birth’s 500-seat sanctuary was an acoustically challenged environment when Concord, CA-based Premier Media Integration, Inc., was brought in to design and install new audio, video, and lighting systems and acoustical treatment. Graham Cooper, President of PMI, contacted Rocky Giannetta, Principal of Layer 8 Inc., to assess the room’s acoustics and assist with systems design.

With Giannetta’s acoustical measurements documenting a reverb time of 3.8 seconds, Layer 8 created an EASE model and designed acoustical treatment and loudspeaker system that PMI would install. While the acoustical treatment reduced reverb to around 1.6 seconds, the environment was still challenging enough to demand an audio system that could keep reflections to a minimum.

“The church has beautiful stained glass throughout the structure,” adds Graham Cooper “Our job was to find places to put the panels that would be aesthetically and architecturally acceptable. Padded chairs, carpet, and, of course, people, also help.”

With reverb down to an almost reasonable level, Giannetta specified the new VARIA line array system from Renkus-Heinz. “We knew that despite our best efforts, the room was not going to be acoustically ideal, and we needed to maximize control of the energy,” he explains. “Typical line arrays would only provide the right directivity in one plane. The client wanted a line array system that would provide the output and headroom for the sound they create, and VARIA fit the bill perfectly.”

The system is comprised of six VARIA VAX101 cabinets per side, with three 7-degree boxes on top and three 15-degree boxes underneath. “With the VARIA’s variable pattern control, we were able to configure coverage from 60 degrees on top to 120 degrees on the bottom,” says Giannetta. Two VAX115S subwoofers per side, along with four DRS18-2 subs on the floor, provide low end reinforcement. The system is powered by Lab.gruppen amplification.

“We’ve been using Renkus-Heinz products on a number of projects, and the clients have always been happy with the results,” says Cooper. “The VARIA system does a great job of focusing the sound on the congregation and keeping it off the walls and reflective surfaces, and the speakers integrate nicely with the room’s architecture. Bishop Smith was emphatic about maintaining the building’s aesthetics, and the VARIA system looks great.”

Giannetta agrees, “the VARIA system was an ideal choice for this project.”
