Oxford Falls, Australia (April 26, 2006)–The 6,000-member Christian City Church, located in Oxford Falls, NSW, Australia, hired Auditoria Pty Ltd’s consultant Scott Willsallen, sound designer for the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, to help with a major upgrade of its audio system.
Christian City Church in Oxford Falls, Australia recently purchased a new Adamson SpekTrix line array PA for its worship facility.He set up a shootout between a variety of systems, with the aid of Frank Hinton of ATT Audio Controls based in Melbourne, and when the dust settled, an Adamson SpekTrix line array was chosen for the facility.
Adamson’s managing director, Jesse Adamson, flew to the shootout in Sydney where Christopher D. Ling engineer of the Church’s Technical department joined them.
Willsallen chose 20 Adamson SpekTrix 5 degree cabinets flown with four 15 degree SpekTrix Wave boxes as down fills in four arched arrays and two SpekTrix Subs flown in the center of the stage, with six additional SpekTrix Subs placed around the 180 degree circular stage to smoothly cover the auditorium.
Ling later admitted: “The Adamson SpekTrix system impressed me from the shootout on, mostly due to the great amplification on speaking voice and the size of the system was impressive in regards to the coverage that it outputs.”
All speakers are powered by Lab.gruppen fP6400, 3400, and 2600 amplifiers. For Ling, a Yamaha PM1D mixing console was purchased. He continued: “It is the first system we have had in that room that is loud, yet doesn’t make the congregation uncomfortable. It’s made a massive improvement on the even spread of sound and given that we are expanding our auditorium later this year, we now have a system that’s ready for that too.”
