Spring Hill, FL (April 7, 2014)—Spring Hill Baptist Church recently underwent a major audio system upgrade at its Spring Hill Florida sanctuary, working with Atlantic Pro Audio.
"This church took their install very seriously, and was absolutely determined to explore multiple options before making a final call," recalled Atlantic Pro Audio's Bobbie Bennett. "They sent a total of six people to a demo at our Altamonte Springs location, which is a two-hour drive. After listening to multiple systems, their selection of the Vue al-4 was unanimous."
Pattern control was an important factor for the Spring Hill's traditionally vocal heavy services. The church's narrow space, rear balcony, and reflective surfaces demanded tightly defined coverage. "The al-4's coverage is so well defined that we were able to do a very discreet center hang consisting of eight boxes," explained Beyrooti. "The installation and setup went very smoothly. We used nothing more than splay angles to achieve coverage from left to right, front to back, as well as the balcony."
A Vue Audiotechnik V4 Systems Engine provides power and processing for the al-4 line array, while a pair of VUE-18a powered subwoofers deliver additional low frequency extension. An external delay processor ensures time alignment between the subs and array. The church's existing Allen & Heath GL3800 analog console rounds out the design and retains a sense of continuity for the mostly volunteer sound crew.
