Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada (July 13, 2020)—Winnipeg’s Fort Garry Mennonite Brethren Church is a 300-seat, A-frame worship facility, and while it’s a contemporary faith community, its audio system was decidedly not contemporary, unable to provide consistent coverage down the length of the room. With that in mind, the church brought in integrator Myron Dyck of Golden West Sound Design to reinvent its entire AV system, and Dyck in turn brought in a Renkus-Heinz IClive X PA.
“The church wanted a cutting-edge system, from audio to video,” said Dykc. “What we installed encompasses everything from IP video distribution and projection, stage lighting and acoustical treatment, and the absolute best sound possible. So, that meant going with Renkus-Heinz.”
The church incorporates a modern band into its services and the lack of clear coverage in the existing system made intelligibility a top priority when it came to designing the next audio set up. Dyck decided Renkus-Heinz digitally steerable arrays would be an appropriate solution. “I knew this would be a Renkus-Heinz install from the start,” Dyck said. For the Winnipeg installation, Dyck installed two ICLive XL loudspeakers and two ICLive X loudspeakers in matching arrays at the front of the hall.
“Everything about it is excellent,” Dyck said. “It was relatively easy to hang and install up against the ceiling using custom made mounts, and we had perfect coverage immediately. Everyone is extremely happy with the end result.”
