Martin Audio MLA Compact Takes Control At Sun Valley Community Church


The Tempe campus of Sun Valley Community Church recently installed a Martin Audio MLA Compact loudspeaker system as a key component in a significant upgrade of its technical capabilities.

According to Eric Johnson, Technical Director for Sun Valley, “Sun Valley Tempe merged with Bethany Church two and a half years ago and we inherited a large campus and an auditorium with technical capabilities that were deficient by today’s standards. The audio system was old and primarily designed for natural speech, orchestra and choir reinforcement in an acoustic setting. That, plus the building is a complex geometrical design, basically a five-sided pentagon with a seven-sided auditorium that’s about 160 degrees wide, has a raked floor, many complex angles and no parallel surfaces. Needless to say, this presented a real challenge when it came to choosing a new loudspeaker system.

“The original system had worked for many years,” Johnson continues, “but changing times, culture and styles made us realize that it no longer served our purposes for electric rock and roll style music. We decided on a major renovation that involved changing the seating from traditional pews to modern theatre style seats and going from a totally carpeted floor to carpeting only in the aisles. We also reduced the size of the stage, pulling back the downstage edge by about twelve feet in addition to upgrading the lighting and audio system.

“And there was a real concern as to whether or not we could put in a system that would adequately reinforce rock and roll without overwhelming the live-sounding room. So we discussed acoustically treating the room, which would have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, or completely tearing down the ceiling and remodeling the room from the inside which wasn’t feasible either.”

Fortunately, Johnson was aware of the Martin Audio MLA system having first heard it several years ago during a demo at Comerica Theater in downtown Phoenix. “I had an idea of what the technology was about,” he points out, “but I was really impressed with what I heard. The possibility of MLA and the MLA Compact system specifically, led us to realize that the technology would allow us to precisely control the audio output and put the energy onto the seats while keeping it off the ceilings and walls. So that’s the direction we decided to pursue.”

The installed system for the 1300-seat auditorium consists of nine MLA Compact enclosures per side in left-right hangs with seven Martin Audio DSX subs in bunkers arranged in arc formation along the downstage edge. Two WT3 speakers for extreme left and right outfill and six DD6 speakers for front fill complete the system with Martin Audio MA3.0 and MA2.8Q amplifiers and a Merlin Processor that manages the outfills and front fills, as well as communications between the speakers. The rest of the setup currently includes a Soundcraft MH2 40-channel Desk at FOH Sennheiser Evolution Series wireless and DPA microphones.

Johnson adds that the installation team, which included Ed Crippen from Clark, the system integration company, Jon Hunsacker and Kevin Hull from SVCC and Sean Stinson’s ream of riggers from Clearwing, had to bring in a considerable amount of additional power to accommodate the new lights and audio system since the building was already over capacity for electrical service.

Completed in the first week of April, the system debuted on Palm Sunday and according to Eric, “it was an overwhelming success. Ed Crippen was there for the whole weekend, which included rehearsals and the first service. He was taking measurements for the service and one of the things we discovered during the sermon was that real-time intelligibility readings were off the charts. He had never seen intelligibility readings that high. The first time our pastor Chad Moore who uses hearing aids, stepped on the stage and spoke through the microphone he said, ‘I can finally hear myself.’

“There was a band playing that averaged between 95dB and 104dB with subs which was clear and not too loud. With the MLA Compact, the musicians can now focus on the nuances and subtleties of their music that can finally be heard without overwhelming the space. I even had to adjust the drummer’s toms because we could hear them rattling against the support post.

“When we went to the portion with just the pastor speaking downstage, we averaged 72dB over a ten minute window,” Eric confirms. “Not only was it loud enough, it was incredibly clear and you felt as if he was talking right in front of you at 72dB. It’s unheard of to put a message out at that volume and not suffer any fatigue because it’s not loud enough. We’re still talking about that one!”

Johnson notes that the overall process of assembling the system took the better portion of a year and required that he put the installer and speaker company together because “Clark was not a Martin Audio dealer and I wanted MLA Compact in the building. Ed and I attended an MLA training class in Las Vegas and that’s when he really lit up and got what the system was all about. It turned out to be a full-fledged collaboration between Sun Valley, Clark and Martin Audio.”

Summing up about the impact of MLA Compact on Sun Valley, Johnson concludes, “One notable thing that happened on the first Sunday we used system is that the doors from the worship center out to the lobby are usually opened up when it’s time to come in the room, but it was a nice day so the exterior doors from the lobby out to the patio were also open. One person commented that the reason he came in was that when the music started, he could hear our worship leader as clear as a bell all the way out onto the patio, which we could never do before the MLA Compact.”

Alford Media Invests in the Future With Martin Audio MLA

Originally founded in 1984 by Steve and Tom Alford, Alford Media is a Dallas-Fort Worth area-based company that specializes in staging high-end corporate events throughout the U.S. and around the world.

Asked about the company’s criteria for choosing a new speaker system as part of an equipment upgrade, Manager of Audio Services John Caswell said, “We’ve been using another system for about 11 years and wanted to take it up several notches to offer our customers a high end solution that could stay on the cutting-edge of technology for years to come.

“We demoed many of the top lines before talking to some of our freelancers who’d used the Martin Audio MLA System and had a lot of good things to say about it. Tom Alford spoke with Mario Educate, CEO and founder of On Stage Audio, who strongly recommended that we listen to the system before making a final decision.

“That got us listening to MLA,” John continues, “discussing the product and the technology in terms of a loudspeaker system that’s still going to be ahead of the curve many years from now. When we looked where Martin Audio was headed with MLA, we felt it would be the longest-term solution and stay well ahead of other companies technologically. This explains why we made the decision.”

Declaring that Alford Media is “glad to be part of the MLA family,” Caswell affirms how impressed they were when his team first demoed MLA at a Walmart show at the Orlando Convention Center. “This is one of the biggest and most acoustically challenging convention centers in the country, which truly helped demonstrate MLA in its element. We were extremely impressed with the results on that show, and so was our client. The system covered the areas it was supposed to cover with a balance across the spectrum. The ability to control sound and quickly achieve optimization was what sold us on MLA.”

Alford initially opted for a system comprised of 32 MLA Compact, 32 MLA Mini, 18 DSX and 8 MSX subs. Taking delivery early, the audio team quickly had half of the system hanging in the MGM Grand for a corporate focus group event and the other half on a truck headed to San Antonio for a Pizza Hut show.

According to John, “Initial feedback from our audio team was that the system was covering exceptionally well and had more horsepower than we needed for these events. Overall, when you factor in the system’s cutting-edge technology, product cycle longevity, superior performance and exceptional audio quality, the reasons for choosing Martin Audio MLA just go on and on.”

Martin Audio MLA To Grace Pyramid Stage At Glastonbury

Glastonbury is regarded as the mother of all festivals with arguably the most iconic of stages. The Pyramid Stage showcases the world’s greatest talent and therefore needs to sound loud, proud and faultless, but it also needs to meet the strict criteria set in stone by the license.

Attempting to quantify exactly what makes Glastonbury so special is always difficult, but this year there is one further special ingredient being added to the mix: Martin Audio’s ground-breaking MLA, courtesy of RG Jones Sound Engineering, will grace the Pyramid Stage for the first time.

The fact that Martin Audio is teaming once again with RG Jones builds on a Glastonbury relationship that started back in 2008. Glastonbury has become the largest green space open-air festival in the world, attracting more than 150,000 attendees who expect pristine sound, and where artists can make, break or further their careers.

So when RG Jones first specified Martin Audio speakers for the iconic Pyramid stage back in 2008, their combined reputation was put to the ultimate test. But successive years of using the Longbow system proved more than a match, with the powerful full-frequency sound stirring the crowds, the proprietary software system Display™ helping to maintain off-site noise limits, and the combined expertise of the companies delivering consistently standout moments.

Key to the longevity and pedigree of Glastonbury, however, is that founders and organizers, the Eavis family, have always demanded the festival remain true to its roots and absolutely up-to-date at the same time. It is therefore fitting that Martin Audio’s MLA will debut this year, bringing forth its reputation for sound quality alongside its scientifically proven ability to direct sound evenly and consistently across the audience and to control leakage beyond the audience perimeter.

RG Jones was the first UK Company to invest in the system in 2012 and has witnessed the systems growing reputation first hand. As Managing Director John Carroll said, “We were not content to follow the crowd when it came to choosing our flagship system. MLA is the next generation and there’s nothing out there to match it. The timing seemed right this year and our continued support from Martin Audio is second to none”. With Simon Honywill, Senior Project Consultant for RG Jones, having such extensive experience of the system also helped convince the Glastonbury production team that MLA had earned its rightful place on the Pyramid stage.

Summing up, Jason Baird, R&D Director for Martin Audio, said, “It was my career highlight back in 2008 working on our very first Glastonbury, but I think with MLA this year, it may well be topped. It’s a great endorsement of our system not just for its coverage and control, but because it has a reputation for being such a neutral, uncolored canvas for engineers to mix upon. With such an eclectic line up once again this year, MLA will more than do justice to everything from Dolly Parton to Kasabian, which is good news for the artists, visiting engineers and of course the audience.”

AATNY Chooses Martin Audio For Skylark Lounge

Set 30 stories above New York City’s Garment Center, The Skylark is an elegant cocktail lounge with expansive views of the Hudson River, Empire State Building and Midtown Manhattan.

Billed as an “all-season destination,” Skylark combines a high-style multi-level indoor space with an outdoor roof terrace and offers an extensive bar menu with small plates such as tapas.

Because dancing is also a priority at Skylark, Advanced Audio Technology of New York was brought in to install audio for the lounge.

AATNY’s Jason Ojeda explains that “there is no specifically designed dance floor, which is typical of many lounges. That required an evenly balanced audio system throughout the venue so that no matter where you are, there is complete coverage with no high or low frequency drop offs.”

Consequently, Ojeda and his team designed a system consisting of 14 Martin Audio AQ28’s in a stereo configuration deployed left and right down the lengths of the entire venue. The system also includes eight 2 x15 sub-bass enclosures, BSS signal processing, Tactical Audio amplification and a custom-made DJ booth by AATNY.

Asked about the reaction to the Martin Audio system, Ojeda says, “The client is thrilled with the sound quality. It’s extremely clear and defined with a lot of punch and presence.

“We’ve used Martin Audio AQ28s for many years in at least 15 to 20 venues and they’ve excelled in terms of robust build quality, client satisfaction and audio performance that’s second to none.”

Martin Audio AQs Excel At Amble Links Holiday Park


Country and leisure park operators Park Leisure recently undertook a major upgrade of its Amble Links ‘owners-only’ holiday park on the Northumberland, England coast.

Preferred AV integrators Promotiontime NE carried out the technology design and outfitting of its main entertainment areas, The Links Owners Only Bar & Entertainment Lounge and refurbished Old Storehouse restaurant/bar, exclusively using a Martin Audio AQ solution for all of its requirements.

Brian Graham, who took over Promotiontime NE ten years ago, has been a frequent user of Martin Audio systems over the years, particularly the Blackline series, but the compact AQ architectural range has opened up a number of new opportunities for him.

“Martin Audio is generally our ‘go to’ brand for most requirements above a basic bar, and I would probably have specified Blackline again for the entertainment room. But when we heard the AQ series, we knew this would be equal to the demands of the room.”

The stage system needed to reinforce small acts, as well as a resident DJ and karaoke, but also needed to be used for larger performances when required.

After sampling the AQ series Graham specified a pair of AQ28’s, with dual 8in drivers, one each side of the stage, as the main front-facing PA with an AQ10 on each wing providing outfills. Recessed into the stage on each side is an AQ215 (2×15) bass enclosure with a 42-way patch so that incoming productions carrying their own mixing console can plug straight in and override the house desk.

The Old Storehouse is divided into two areas; a restaurant and bar, with background music fed to eight AQ6 in the main restaurant and a pair of AQ5s in the overspill/annex area, while the dedicated bar area is served by an additional combination of AQ8, AQ6 and pair of AQ112 (1×12) subs.

The music extends to the outside patio area where Brian Graham has specified four Martin Audio C115 surface-mount weather-resistant speakers.

The entire system is powered by Martin Audio MA5.2K, MA4.8Q and MA2.8Q amplifiers and fed by a 16×16 audio routing matrix, which allows any sound source to be switched to any zone via the Martin Audio Engineer 818 DSP. Limiting and EQ settings are also stored in the Engineer, with inputs recalled and switched between the different operating modes via the Control4 audio and lighting environmental control platform (linked to Mode dimming packs for the lighting).

The installation needed to offer ease of use and the site is configured so that all audio and vision can be switched and controlled from two touch screens, one located in the main bar and the other in the performance area, to allow intuitive use throughout the complex.

In summary, Brian Graham confirmed, “In addition to raising the performance level, we had to make the installation look sleek which the AQ certainly does. And with only around 10 ft. ceiling height in the entertainment room, we are able to run the AQ28s in landscape orientation, flush against the ceiling. It was the perfect solution.

“Everything works seamlessly; the client is absolutely delighted, the feedback has been great and we have had nothing but positive comments.”
