Fall City, WA (October 20, 2009)--Snoqualmie Valley Alliance Church in Fall City, WA recently upgraded its audio system with boxes from the new EV-Innovation family of installation-dedicated loudspeakers.
This system upgrade was specified by Jeff Sanderson and Todd Gathany of Onpoint Designs and installed by regional sound company Morgan Sound. The system also features EV's latest XCS312 cardioid pattern subwoofers.
"Our EV rep Kevin Johnson (Left Coast Marketing) introduced us to the EV-Innovation family (EVA, EVF, EVH) at the InfoComm trade show," says Gathany, "and we came away really impressed with their sonic characteristics--very smooth and warm-sounding."
Though Snoqualmie Valley Alliance Church is housed in an older building, the church wanted to create a more progressive, contemporary ambience for its 400-seat sanctuary. The main system comprises a central array of four EVA boxes (covering the main floor and balcony), with two EVA-2082S/906 (long throw 90° x 6° dispersion) flown over two EVA-2082S/920 (short throw 90° x 20°). The central array is flanked by left and right over/under clusters of horizontally flown EVF boxes: EVF-1152S/64 (60° x 40°) over EVF-1122S/126 (120° x 60°).
"Beyond their inherent sound quality, these speakers did everything we asked them to do from an acoustic perspective during the system design phase," Gathany continues. "Charlie Morgan and Morgan Sound did a superb job installing the system. The speakers' real-world performance mirrors their predicted performance, and we have plenty of gain before feedback and the headroom to handle all kinds of applications, from services to full-scale rock shows. When I met with the music pastor yesterday--a trained musician--I asked him how the system sounds; he said 'This system sounds absolutely amazing.' That's exactly what we like to hear."
