Cambellsville, KY (October 9, 2012)—The Campbellsville Baptist Church, a 900-seat church in Kentucy, recently installed an Adamson Metrix system into its remodeled two-floor setting.
The initial parameters for the new system’s placement were based on room positioning and aesthetics. “We had originally looked at front fills, but after tuning the arrays, we realized the room was completely covered with terrific sound with no additions,” explains Ryan Jackson of JCA Media LLC, the consulting company in charge of the sound design and installation.
The system design consisted of two arrays of eight Metrix 5 degree enclosures with two Metrix W 15 degree front fills hung underneath, and a Metrix double 15” sub flown at the top of each array. The balcony was a bit of a challenge though. “We needed to get energy up in the room due to the balcony being the location of the sound engineer; we had a 5’ wall to keep energy off of on the front of the balcony; and we had to cover 20’ underneath the balcony to the back wall. This challenge was conquered by finetuning the arrays,” Jackson said.
Additional speakers used with the install were one Fulcrum Acoustic subwoofer on the ground as well as Adamson Point 8 boxes for choir monitoring. All Adamson speakers were powered and processed by Lab.gruppen PLM10000Qs. Other upgrades included Allen & Heath iLive digital system, Audio-Technica 5000 Series wireless receiver and DPA instrument microphones.
