Greensburg, PA (August 17, 2011)–Word of Life Ministries recently upgraded its audio systems with a range of QSC equipment.
The new audio systems throughout the venue installed in the church’s main sanctuary, children’s classroom, and cafe and youth center, were designed and installed by Penn, PA’s Stormrider Sound and Lighting Design Systems, with installation assistance from Impact Audio, of Pittsburgh. The new audio equipment includes QSC AcousticDesign Series and K Series loudspeakers, an ILA WideLine Series Line Array with ISIS Series WL subwoofers, as well as CX and PowerLight Series amplifiers. SC28 and QSControl.net system controllers manage DSP, control, monitoring and distribution.
The main sanctuary at Word of Life is covered by flown left and right arrays, each comprising eight ILA Line Array WL2082-i enclosures, configured with two ILA Series WL118-sw subwoofers positioned behind them. Three PowerLight PL380 amplifiers power the low- and mid-frequency units, with a PL340 powering the high-frequency components. An SC28 System Controller provides system optimization. Self-powered K10 two-way loudspeakers supply monitoring on the sanctuary’s stage platform.
The Wave Walker Village, a children’s classroom with bleacher seating and a village façade stage set, is outfitted with a pair of QSC AD-S82 loudspeakers located on either side of a giant screen. Three additional AD-S82s are integrated into the façade, along with an AD-S28Tw subwoofer. A second AD-S2Tw is located behind a grille in the wall, with CX Series amplifiers providing power to all the loudspeakers. The classroom’s loudspeakers and amplifiers are networked via QSControl.net and under the control of a wall-mounted QSC NAC-100 Network Audio Controller.”
Elsewhere on campus, the café features six AD-S82 speakers, affixed to the walls using QSC’s Intellidock intelligent mounting system. CX Series amplifiers provide power. “The system is designed for acoustic music acts,” explains Stormrider founder Stash Roberts. “There are also TVs in there, and they hold conferences and so forth.”
The youth center, which features a large stage flanked by two large screens, includes a pair of GP218-sw ground support subwoofers, powered by PowerLight PL380 amplifiers, supplementing the main speaker system. PowerLight amplifiers additionally power the main flown arrays, with PLX2 Series amplifiers supplying power to the stage monitor speakers. A custom matrix switcher designed by Stormrider Sound routes the eight monitor channels to 16 available positions onstage.
