Hometown Church for Lincoln Brewster Replaces Existing Point ‘N Shoot System with NEXO GEO S12 Line Array

BUENA PARK, Calif.—The Bayside Church in Roseville, California, known to many as the home to house of worship leader and influential musician, Lincoln Brewster, recently upgraded its speaker system for their 2,300-seat main campus location with a NEXO GEO S12 line array, RS18′s, and NXAmps. Bayside Church has a total of four locations, and over 12,000 members of the congregation attend worship services on any given weekend. Bayside Church and Brewster, who frequently leads worship at the church when not on tour, have considerable influence on the Christian scene. “Lincoln was very much involved in our decision to replace our existing d&b system with the NEXO system,” states Lee Fields, Senior Audio Director for all audio systems and audio staff across the campuses. “It was really a joint effort; Lincoln trusts me, but at the same time, I don’t underestimate his talents either. He is an incredible audio engineer in his own right. After all, he has mixed most of his own records.” The NEXO system was purchased through Special Event Services (SES), Sacramento.

Fields said that the core of the change in line array systems was that the church seating had changed drastically. “The d&b system was a point and shoot system that mainly covered the floor (about 900 seats), and large delay boxes covered the remaining 1,000ish seats in the bleacher sections. The new seating arrangement is still 900 on the floor and another 1,400 or so in new stadium-style seats, adding in another 500 new seating locations. With the previous system, over half of the seating area would have been in coverage by delay speakers—not ideal with the worship experience we are trying to create. The NEXO line array has allowed us to cover the room much better from a single source, and every seat sounds amazing and surprisingly similar to the next.” On a typical weekend, Bayside’s worship band consists of 6-7 contemporary worship musicians.

The second reason for the change out the system was a bit more philosophical Fields notes. “Lincoln and I both have been to hundreds of churches and have seen a variety of PA systems: PAs that rival stadium touring rigs, PAs way too small for big rooms, PAs way too big for small rooms, PAs that sound great and are just right for a church, and PAs that cost way too much money for a church to be spending money on. With all that said, we finally found a product that far exceeds our needs sonically and that is also a perfect representation of being a good steward when it comes to our church’s money. This is the biggest win for us on a personal level, knowing that we didn’t have to spend zillions of dollars on a system. We are astonished by the performance of the GEO S12 rig/ It feels great knowing our church can go about the duty of assisting people with the money we saved by choosing the product we did, and we didn’t sacrifice anything, rather, we gained everything.”

Fields has been a touring engineer for close to ten years and says he’s literally seen all of the various line arrays available. “I kept running across the GEO S12 at medium size festivals, at conferences, and other events. Every time I got my hands on them, I loved them! A huge bonus is how supportive the team at Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems has been. Jake Cody, the House of Worship Manager, has been an invaluable resource to me, Lincoln, and to our church. The heart of the Company, and Jake, is to help churches in anyway they can. The same can be said for Greg Slape from SES. They believe that NEXO being an elite brand can provide churches what they require in a line array, but at an affordable price point. The quality of the service from Yamaha and SES is unmatched in this industry, and I don’t think anyone would disagree.”

“We chose the NEXO Geo S12 because it was the best sounding box we tried,” adds Brewster. “It also happened to be the least expensive, and in my opinion, is the best value in line-array systems today.” The three other Bayside Church locations are using NEXO systems with NX Amps and Yamaha LS9 Digital Consoles. In total, there are over ten Yamaha digital consoles across all Bayside Church venues. On this year’s Christmas tour, Lincoln Brewster took along a pair of the new Yamaha CL5 Digital Consoles as well as a NEXO GEO S12 system, which Fields said, had big advantages so rehearsals could be accomplished at their own church with the exact PA used for the tour.

In Time for Holiday Services, Church Gives Congregation the Gift of Enhanced Sound with Yamaha CL5

BUENA PARK, Calif.—This year’s holiday services at Ebenezer United Methodist Church in Stafford, Virginia will be enhanced significantly with the addition of a new Yamaha CL5 digital console. The 500-seat traditional and contemporary style-worship sanctuary purchased the new console along with two Yamaha RIO input/output racks from Sound Productions in Irving, Texas.

“Our decision to replace our existing analog console, was based on three major factors,” states James Mills, Director of Technology. “It had to be a digital console since we have a tight turn-around of 15 minutes between services, and attempting to use an analog board to get accurate sound levels at each service would be very difficult. The console had to physically fit in a tight space. And, as a church, we wanted to spend our money as wisely as possible, so looking at the long-term picture, it made sense to go with the CL5 knowing there would be plenty of room for growth.”

Mills said church staff and volunteers actually had to completely remove their old sound/video booth and rebuild it to fit the new console. Then he and Dave Bryant, the Director of Contemporary Music re-installed the booth’s contents including the new CL5. “I love the ease of setup and punch and clarity the CL5 brings to our sanctuary,” notes Bryant. “Since the band changes almost every week, it’s nice having such a fast, easy way to make changes to the setup, EQ and DCAs. This certainly has set us up for the future, and I’m really excited about that.”

“The console has a lot of nice features that make it friendlier to our volunteer-operator environment, including channel labeling and plenty of room for custom banks,” adds Mills. While he never had direct experience with Dante before the CL5, Mills was familiar with what it could provide in terms of audio networking and features like being able to tap into the network for multi-track recording. “Dante gave us the assurance that this was the console that would take us well into the future.”

Ebenezer UMC’s sanctuary has an average attendance on a weekend of about 1,200 across five services. There are two traditional services, one with a four to six person vocal group and the other with a 30-voice choir. The other three services are contemporary in style with multiple musicians and vocalists.

“The Yamaha CL5 sounds great!” Mills said. “With no other audio changes to our system, the difference in sound from our old analog console to the CL5 is huge. From the pastors to the choir and band, the new console has brought to us a new standard of clarity and natural sound we had not heard in our sanctuary before. The choice of the CL5 has given us the confidence that no matter what happens next, we have a console that will be able to handle it.”

FSR’s New CORE Product Line Addresses Floor Space Challenge

COOL OVERHEAD RACK ENCLOSURES OFFER SOLUTIONS FOR CLASSROOMS, BOARDROOMS AND MEETING ROOMS

Woodland Park, NJ – FSR, manufacturer of audio and video switching, control products, and connectivity boxes, is debuting its new CORE family of products to help solve the challenges of today’s classrooms, boardrooms and meeting rooms where floor space has reached an all-time premium.

With FSR’s Cool Overhead Rack Enclosures (CORE), which consists of the Ceiling Box family of above ceiling rack enclosures, and the brand new Top Shelf wall mounted rack enclosure, the company can offer viable options to facilities which can no longer afford to devote floor space to equipment racks or credenzas.

“Let’s face it, many facilities today just don’t have the same amount of floor space any longer to devote to large equipment racks,” says Jan Sandri, president, FSR. “With our new CORE family of products, FSR has the solution. We are thrilled to be able to introduce these powerful options to the industry, which includes the Ceiling Box family and Top Shelf wall-mounted rack enclosure, that target today’s challenges of space constraints.”

The Ceiling Box family is installed in a standard 2’ x 2’ or 2’ x 4’ drop ceilings and provides from 2 ½ rack to 4 full rack spaces for equipment mounting. Optionally, the Ceiling Box family can be equipped with a projector pole mount adapter so that the projector can mount directly to the ceiling box and cables can disappear through the pole.

The newest member of the CORE family is the Top Shelf wall mounted rack. Top Shelf mounts to a wall just below the ceiling in installations without a drop ceiling or where space above the drop ceiling is limited. The Top Shelf provides four rack units of mounting space and the plastic cover allows RF and WiFi signals to pass unobstructed between the equipment and the room.

Community ENTASYS Provides the Audio Solution for the Heilig Hart Church

Boom, Belgium – December 2012….. The Heilig Hart (Sacred Heart) church in Boom, just South of Antwerp in Belgium, has recently had a new Community audio system installed by communication and integration specialist, Zelzate-based Tevean nv.

With capacity for up to 700 people and contemporary architecture, the large open space required good pattern control loudspeakers to avoid the reflective surfaces in the highly reverberant environment. Community ENTASYS three-way, full-range, column-line-array systems were chosen for their ideal wide horizontal and extremely narrow vertical dispersion. As the system is used for music and small concerts, in addition to its prime function of speech reinforcement, compact dual 12-inch Community VLF212 subwoofers were incorporated to extend the low frequency and add powerful bass performance.

Providing flexibility with simple control, Tevean installed a Symetrix Solus 8 open architecture 8×8 DSP with control via a Symetrix ARC-2e menu-driven wall panel remote. A variety of Clockaudio and MIPRO ACT-5 wireless microphones meet the fixed and portable requirements of the church.

Mario Clabots, managing director of the equipment supplier, M-Pro, commented, “The client and visitors are very pleased with the excellent audio quality, wide coverage and sound levels the system provides. It achieves very high intelligibility right to the back of the church and delivers the ideal solution for both speech and music.”

SYMETRIX SOLUS 8 AND JUPITER 4 DELIVER THE MESSAGE AT SOUTHEAST ASIA BIBLE SEMINARY

MALANG, INDONESIA – DECEMBER 2012: The Southeast Asia Bible Seminary (SEABS) instructs students from around Indonesia and other nearby countries from its campus in Malang, East Java. It offers several degrees, including a Bachelor of Divinity, multiple masters degrees, and a Doctor of Ministry. To match the needs of an expanding student body, SEABS has added new buildings and infrastructure to its facilities. Most recently, the school added a 1,600-seat auditorium and a 150-seat recital hall, both of which required high-impact sound reinforcement. A/V integration firm PT Gracia Auvindo of Jakarta designed and installed those systems using the Symetrix Solus 8 open-architecture processor and the Symetrix Jupiter 4 fixed-architecture processor, both of which offered cost-effective performance perfectly tailored to the needs of the school.

“The school officials asked for a very clear and intelligible sound reinforcement system,” said T.S. Phan, engineer with PT Gracia Auvindo. “They wanted excellent dispersion and coverage for all of the seats in both venues.” The auditorium will be used for very large services (an existing sanctuary hosts SEABS’ regular services) and for other large events, such as graduation ceremonies. In contrast, the new recital hall will be used for small services, seminars, and overflow from the auditorium.

A new Midas mixing console serves as the input and control hub in the auditorium. On-stage microphones, piano, and band instruments provide the bulk of the input material. The console sends signal directly to a Coda Audio house PA via CAMCO amplifiers. However, console output is also distributed to the basement, the first floor public areas, and the second floor by way of the Symetrix Solus 8 processor. For the distributed system, QSC amplifiers provide power to Ecler ceiling-mounted loudspeakers. The Symetrix Solus 8 also provides output for Coda Audio side-fill, out-fill, front-fill, and backfill loudspeakers.

“The Symetrix Solus 8 was a cost-effective choice,” said Phan. “It not only gave us the high-fidelity sound asked for by the client, but also gave us open-architecture flexibility to design exactly what was needed. For example, I could insert two channels of feedback fighters on the stage side-fills, where it was needed, without wasting that resource on the other outputs, where it wasn’t needed.”

The recital hall is considerably simpler. Input sources such as stage microphones and a few band instruments feed a small Midas mixer, which in turn feeds a Symetrix Jupiter 4 fixed-architecture processor. From there, CAMCO amplifiers power a Coda Audio loudspeaker system consisting of stereo full-range boxes paired with stereo subwoofers. Phan used a “Sound Reinforcement” app to configure the Symetrix Jupiter 4 with appropriate input/output structure and processing blocks. “The Symetrix Jupiter 4 is a very simple, cost-effective DSP for this type of application,” said Phan. “I just chose an appropriate app using the Symetrix App Finder on the Symetrix webpage, loaded it up on the unit, and made a few parameter adjustments, and it was ready to go!”

ABOUT SYMETRIX Symetrix engineers high-end professional audio solutions, specializing in DSP hardware and software. Symetrix products are distributed worldwide, and designed and manufactured in the U.S. at the Seattle area headquarters. Since 1976, customers have enjoyed the benefits of Symetrix’ independent ownership and management.

ROBUST, AFFORDABLE ASHLY PROCESSORS, AMPLIFIERS, AND NETWORK FADER REMOTE CONTROL REJUVENATE ST. CLEMENT CHURCH

DES PERES, MISSOURI: St. Clement of Rome Catholic Church has served as the spiritual bedrock of Des Peres, Missouri for over half a century. Today, over 5,000 parishioners call St. Clement home, and over 500 students attend its schools. Like most mid-sized churches, the impact of its services relies on a well-functioning sound reinforcement system to deliver transparent, intelligible spoken word and emotionally compelling music. When St. Clement’s old sound system started failing, it called on local A/V integrator Tech Electronics to install a new system that would provide trouble-free service for years to come. Tech Electronics met that goal with a new headend comprised of an Ashly ne24.24M modular processor, three Ashly KLR 3200 amplifiers, and an Ashly FR-16 network fader remote control.

“The church had last updated its equipment over a dozen years ago,” explained Tony Badamo, systems specialist at Tech Electronics. “They don’t modify their setup very often, so when they do, they want to choose an integrator and equipment that will provide a stable system to carry them far into the future. The auto-mixers in the old system were starting to fail, as were some of the amplifiers.” Badamo wanted to try a complete Ashly system, based on its reputation for reliability and its competitive price point. “The power you get per dollar with Ashly amplifiers is very efficient,” he added. “If you compare it with the other leading amplifier manufacturers out there, you’ll see it’s a big difference.”

All of the loudspeakers – which are arranged as a center cluster with a left-right complement – were in good shape, and Badamo left them in place. Only the rack equipment needed to be replaced. To accommodate the church’s CD player input and its many microphone inputs, he outfitted the modular Ashly ne24.24M processor with twelve analog inputs. Eight outputs handle all of the existing loudspeakers, including a 70-volt system for hallways and other areas outside the sanctuary, as well as a listening assistance system. Badamo easily configured one of the Ashly KLR 3200 amplifier channels to power the 70-volt system. The remaining channels power the house system.

Badamo was careful to give St. Clement Church enough control to meet its needs, but not so much control that curious fingers could wreck the setup. The Ashly FR-16 is a bank of sixteen faders plus a master that communicates with any Ashly processor via a simple network connection. Each fader’s effect is fully customizable, and Badamo gave the church simple volume control of each input, along with master volume control. Because the church was hoping for a “set it and forget it” setup, the Ashly FR-16 resides in the rack. Everything else is off limits. “I love that the volume knobs on the Ashly KLR amplifiers can be locked out,” Badamo said. “Especially in systems like this with multiple outputs, giving the user access to the volume knobs is a recipe for blown-up speakers!”
