imgChambersburg, PA (March 10, 2014)—King Street Church in Chambersburg, PA recently updated its audio system with the help of Nashville, TN-based Morris Light & Sound.

With a congregation of approximately 2,000, King Street Church seats 550 in the sanctuary and 725 in the Baker Center, a separate contemporary worship space. Three service styles are held each Sunday: traditional, contemporary, and a blended service. The contemporary and blended services have anywhere from six to ten musicians and vocalists as part of the praise band.

“The tech team had heard Nexo and Yamaha systems at many conferences and training sessions,” said John Petrarca (Audio Install Project Coordinator, King Street Church). “Since the church is made up mostly of volunteers and house audio duties are shared, we needed a system that was up to date and able to make transitions from one service style to the next. The system also allows for future growth, from video production to multi-site possibilities.”

The result was that the church got a new Nexo GeoS12 line array system (five GeoS12s per side and two RS18 Ray Subs flown in the center) along with a Yamaha CL5 digital audio console at front of house, and two Rio 3224-D input/output located in an amp rack behind the stage.

“Given the traditional architecture and diverse worship styles at King Street, we needed to provide a system that was not only aesthetically pleasing but also met performance requirements for the various services at the church,” said Danny Rosenbalm, vice president of Integration at Morris Light & Sound. “The Nexo GeoS12s were a great choice for this application as they provide exceptional coverage and strong full range music reproduction, all while keeping the spoken word and vocal clarity of paramount importance.”
