Subang Jaya Assembly of God is a fast-growing Malaysian contemporary church near Kuala Lumpur. To enhance the audio quality of its celebration-style worship services, the church recently installed a Meyer Sound M’elodie® line array loudspeaker system in its 750-seat sanctuary. The new system was provided and installed by Danny Kinchang of First Live Sound, based in Petaling Jaya.
“We have certainly experienced an improvement in sound, and consequently, an improvement in the playing of the worship music team,” says Pastor Donny Tan, who takes an active role in the church’s music program. “The M’elodie system has brought strong positive motivation to the team, and resulted in a more professional presentation.”
Twin flown arrays of five-each M’elodie loudspeakers cover the auditorium, along with four UPJunior™ VariO™ loudspeakers for out fill and center down fill. Four 600-HP subwoofers in an end-fire directional array supply low end, while a Galileo® loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 616 processor provides system drive and optimization.
“The new system also has improved speech clarity,” points out Pastor Tan. “It sounds great—there is very little need to tweak the equalization, as everything is clear and distinct.
The front-end complement for the new system includes a Yamaha LS9-32 digital mixing console and an assortment of premium microphones from Sennheiser, DPA, Audio-Technica, and Shure. Kinchang and First Live Sound also designed and supervised the acoustical treatment for the room.
Subang Jaya Assembly of God’s vibrant LifePoint ministry provides Sunday worship services in English and Chinese, as well as a full spectrum of programs and activities for children, youth, young adults, and seniors throughout the week.
