orth_design_01.jpgOrth Design Corporation (San Clemente, CA) recently outfitted two lounges in Orange County, CA with Electro-Voice ZX and Sx sound systems that provide a perfect balance of performance and aesthetics.

10 ZXA5 powered two-way 15? loudspeakers—the state of the art in high-powered polypropylene enclosure boxes—provide full-range sound at the I-Lounge in Orange County. “They were looking to create a high-energy space for DJs—a club/lounge atmosphere,? Walter Orth explains. “The ZXA5 matched their budget requirements while surpassing the expectations in terms of performance—perfect. We installed eight boxes for the main system—four on each side of the room—plus four QRx218S subs for low-end support, with all the subs powered by a single EV TG-7 amp. Two more ZXA5s serve as DJ monitors. The system has two configurations: one for DJ sets, using all the speakers; one for live performances that only uses the speakers on the rear stage side. The subs are broken out too, running on an auxiliary channel for live performances. For DJs, everything is preset, and runs to the appropriate speakers. more

Chicago Church chooses Electro-Voice sound

new_mount_pilgrim_baptist_01.jpgAn Electro-Voice sound system has brought a new lease of life to New Mount Baptist Church, which occupies a 100-year old building in Chicago’s West Side. AVI Systems, Inc. completed the system design and installation, balancing state-of-the-art software control with compact, high performance loudspeakers and amplifiers to create a budget-friendly solution. “The church asked me to design a concert sound system rather than a church system,? says Rick Muermann CTS of AVI Systems, Inc. “They have a full band and a lot of audience participation; music is at the heart of their worship style, and they needed a system that could handle a full-on live performance. The sanctuary holds around 500, and the ceilings are about 60-70-feet high. One of the issues was figuring out whether or not to spec a line array. To hang the speakers, we had to climb up above the ceiling on these little 100-year-old walkways. After mapping the room, we found we could cover the entire congregation with just two FRX+ 940 loudspeakers. The walls and ceiling are very ornate, and this provides a nice, streamlined solution that doesn’t compromise the room’s aesthetics. more
