Adamson Metrix line arrays supports contemporary services and the occasional concert or special event hosted by Fellowship Missionary Church.
Port Perry, Ontario (January 30, 2014)—An Adamson Metrix line array system was recently installed at the Fellowship Missionary Church in Fort Wayne, IN, to accommodate the multiple programs held in the church’s sanctuary.
Realizing the space needed a new sound system, technical director Kirk McKinley called upon Indianapolis-based Circle City Audio to help find a system that would fit. The sanctuary serves as a space for worship, a gymnasium and community room.
"The room looks a lot like a gymnasium with a stage set back into the far wall," explains Andrew Van Veld, owner and system designer at CC Audio. "Fortunately, it is not your average gym acoustically—the space has been treated well. When the room is filled with seats and people, it sounds pretty good."
With acoustics removed from the equation, the goal was to create a system that would better support contemporary worship services as well as the occasional concert or special event hosted in the space.
CC Audio installed left-right arrays, each consisting of 10 Metrix line array enclosures—two Metrix Subs at the top followed by six Metrix and two Metrix W enclosures at the bottom. Two T21 subwoofers are located on the ground under the stage for additional low end.
Because FOH is located in the balcony in the rear of the room, CC Audio also supplied an Adamson Spektrix Wave for use as a monitor at FOH. The system is powered by three Lab.gruppen PLM series amplifiers.
