Mountain Springs Church in Colorado gets new D.A.S. Audio sound system
|With more and more houses of worship incorporating contemporary style services into their worship programs as a means of engaging youth, the ability of the sound reinforcement system to deliver a high level of speech intelligibility and music reproduction becomes increasingly important. That’s why Mountain Springs Church recently upgraded their sound system—drawing upon loudspeakers from the Convert series catalog of Valencia, Spain-based D.A.S. Audio.
Colorado Springs, CO-based Sight and Sound Technologies, a design / build firm that help churches and organizations excel in the areas of sound, lighting and video, was contracted to design and deploy the church’s new sound system. Kris Johnson, the company’s C.O.O. was involved in all aspects of the project. He discussed the challenges of the job and his reason for deploying D.A.S. Audio’s Convert 15A loudspeakers and SX-218A powered subwoofers.
Mountain Springs Church is a non-denominational church with contemporary services. With its removable seating for 800, the church accommodates roughly 3500 worshippers over the course of multiple services. Music assumes a vital role in every service. The church needed a cost effective solution for their aging sound system and it was very important that the new loudspeaker setup be capable of high SPL output”.
To address this requirement of the space, Johnson deployed three D.A.S. Audio Convert 15A powered, multi-function loudspeakers—flown horizontally in a L-C-R configuration. The horizontal and vertical dispersion characteristics of the Convert 15A can be ‘converted’ to address the specific requirements of most any application. This is achieved using D.A.S. Audio’s proprietary Digitally Convertible Dispersion™ feature. For low frequency support, the Sight and Sound Technologies team placed three D.A.S. SX-218A sub bass enclosures on the ground under the front edge of the stage.
With their new sound reinforcement system operational for several months now, Johnson reports that Mountain Springs Church is very pleased with their new equipment, “We are definitely heroes with church management. We took an old, 16-speaker line array system that was very spotty and didn’t cover the whole room, deployed three Convert 15A’s placed in the right location and, in the process, have covered the entire room evenly. Our client couldn’t be happier, and for us, that’s the best compliment of all.”
