Berkwick, PA (August 17, 2007)–Cobra Sound, headed up by owner Jeffrey Knorr, recently completed three Church installations in the area, all of which made use of various Sabine products.
An install at the Berwick Christian Church, involved an upgrade of the main sanctuary and DSP to provide better pattern control, gain before feedback and enhance intelligibility–all common problems with typical small church audio systems. As part of its answer, Cobra used a Sabine Graphi-Q single channel processor as the slave, driving Yorkville NX350 loudspeakers, with a second output driving another set of speakers with a digital delay and separate processing.
For the Mifflinville United Methodist Church in Mifflinville, PA, Cobra provided a complete sound system installation; system components included a Sabine Graphi-Q dual channel system processor for left and right mains, Community XLT42E loudspeakers, a Crown CE2000 power amplifier, an Allen & Heath MixWizard2 16:2DX mixer, Shure Beta58A mics and a Shure LX wireless system, along with Marantz CD player and tape decks.
A third installation, focusing on vocal intelligibility and future expansion needs, was completed for the 200-seat Jerseytown United Methodist Church in Jerseytown, PA. Along with the Sabine Navigator NAV3600 for Left/Right Mains and monitor send processing, the system included RCF passive and active speakers for Mains and monitoring respectively along with Audix micrphones. “We use the Navigators for all house equalization, system limiting, feedback elimination and reduction–pretty much all of the features in the box. We were using another system procesor before, but switched to the Sabine 3X6 models so we could Aux fed subs or left and right monitor sends. That one extra input gave us a lot more flexibility.”
