Decatur, GA (May 31, 2011)–Messenger Media Systems of Covington, GA recently created New Life Church’s new audio system, which includes Face Audio amplifiers.
Senior systems engineer Christopher Bragg explained, “The client had purchased an old high school which they used for administrative offices and built a large sanctuary behind it. It was a 2,000-seat church and they only had $100,000 for the audio system because they’d spent a lot of money up front for conduits and other infrastructure they didn’t end up using.
“Acoustically, the room is difficult. Lots of straight walls, hard surfaces and we didn’t have the budget for acoustic treatment at that point. That was the main difficulty, working on a small budget for a room that size.”
Continuing, Bragg says, “They wanted an aggressive—loud–system for Gospel music with electric instrumentation, so we chose Renkus-Heinz STX7 speakers in an exploded cluster with two main speakers in the middle, and sidefills of STX4s, SGX 151s as a delay ring and an existing cluster of JBL 4212s for the downfills.”
Powering it all were Face Audio amplifiers. “We used four F700TS and three F1200TS Titanium Series amps to push the delay ring and the main clusters. They provide exceptional performance in pushing the speakers and they’re a solid amp that sounds great at a price you can’t beat. Face also had a solid warranty program that allowed us to make the client feel comfortable about a brand they didn’t know as well.”
