In the case of Holland, Michigan-based Christ Memorial Church (CMC), the answer was to install a cost-effective coaxial solution from L-ACOUSTICS.

Early last year, CMC initially commissioned Parkway Electric and Communications to design a discrete loudspeaker setup to provide sound reinforcement for its 180-voice choir and orchestra, both of which perform from the far left side of the sanctuary. After evaluating at a number of systems, Parkway specified a compact LA4-powered system comprised of four KIVA elements arrayed beneath a KILO low-frequency extension cabinet, with two additional KIVA down-firing behind the array to provide monitoring for the choir. more

Such was the case at Cincinnati’s Inspirational Baptist Church. After completing their new sanctuary in February 2009, church officials found themselves at the mercy of a sound system that impeded their services. Determined to rectify the situation, the church determined the only solution was to start over. Their new sound system—a TrueLine line array setup from Greensboro, NC-based WorxAudio Technologies—is exactly what they hoped for. more
