Miami, FL (September 22, 2005)–Drummer Boy Sound (DBS) of Pembroke Pines, Florida, recently installed EV loudspeakers, amps and wireless microphone systems into Holy Ghost Assembly of the Apostolic Faith Church in Miami. DBS owner Harold Cummings oversaw the effort.
“The previous system used by the church was based around an eight-channel powered mixer head and two two-way 15-inch loudspeakers,” said Cummings. “It was clumsy, consumer grade gear that wasn’t doing the job for the 500-person congregation. Bishop Johnson asked me to design a system that would improve the sound quality, have reliable performance, and that would last. It was also important to keep the system simple, since there’s no dedicated sound engineer at the church.”
Cummings picked QRx112 loudspeakers to be flown, powered by Q series amplifiers; underlying that was a single Sb121 to give the system some low end. RE-2 wireless systems with N/D767 capsules were also selected.
“But the stars of the show are the new ZX1 monitors,” Cummings remarked. “When I brought the four ZX1s in for installation, the Bishop looked at them and said ‘what are these little speakers going to do!? They won’t be loud enough’. It took me about 30 minutes to run the speaker cables through the stage and make the NL4 connections. Once I connected the speakers and turned them on without the main house QRx loudspeakers) the Bishop asked me to run the monitors without the mains. When I told him the QRx boxes weren’t on, the Bishop stood there listening, jaw dropped, scratching his head!”
Cummings added: “A Church that holds 500 people needs a good sound system, but this is often accompanied by a misconception that professional quality sound is too expensive. Part of our job was to educate our customer as much as satisfy their requirements. This PA has helped improve the whole worship experience at the Church, onstage and in the pews. That’s what it’s all about.”
