Gahanna, OH (May 22, 2015)—New Life Church Gahanna in Ohio recently upgraded its sound reinforcement system, with help from Creative Sound and Lighting Solutions (Cape Coral, FL), which installed a WorxAudio Technologies XL5i-P loudspeaker system.
“The sanctuary at New Life Church Gahanna is a big, open space that measures 100 feet by 100 feet, with a ceiling height of 20 feet,” said Rob Robinson, the firm’s co-owner (pictured). “Music plays a very important role in their worship services, with the choir and orchestra occupying a good 25 minutes or so of every service. The services are contemporary in nature, so it was very important to provide a sound system with a high level of speech intelligibility, in addition to excellent music reproduction characteristics. This is why we elected to install the XL5i-P.”
“The XL5i-P is the only loudspeaker system that we can trust to replace not only a 3-box center cluster but 2 additional outside edge speakers placed 30 feet to the left and right,” Robinson explains. “The XL5i-P’s broad 160 degree throw is quite extraordinary and is far more effective in providing even coverage throughout the room than the previous multiple-enclosure system was. The system is very musical, and speech is clear. Equally important, the single-cluster design minimizes line-of-sight-considerations and, as a result, does not detract from the aesthetics of the room.”
New Life Church Gahanna’s new sound reinforcement system was installed in early December and was placed into service immediately afterward. “Since the system was first fired up, we’ve received nothing but compliments,” Robinson reports. “Eric Rice, New Life Church Gahanna’s Director of Audio Ministry, told me on the phone recently that it could not have worked out any better. In fact, down the road, the church will be looking to us to be provide AV technology for its future expansion plans. When one project leads to another, that’s as good as it gets!”
