Electro-Voice and Dynacord sound system meet needs of Seoul church

An Electro-Voice and Dynacord system has been fitted within Grace Kwangsung Church in Gangdong-gu, Seoul.

The house of worship features a modern multi-purpose design, therefore it needed an equally versatile sound system to accommodate the services, including worship meetings, church events, and concerts. Of course, the top priority was to ensure the utmost clarity and uniform coverage during church services.

Won Young Kim, Kim Jin Keuk, and Kim Ho Jun of Bosch worked with dB Sound Interactive alongside the church leaders, creating a solution to precisely address their performance and budget requirements. After simulating with PREVIEW Loudspeaker Software, a system design was finalised.

Six X1-212/120 line-array loudspeakers and two X12-125F flying subwoofers per side served as the main system, with one EVC-1122-VI variable-intensity model for precise centre fill.

Four ultracompact EVU-1082/95 and eight FRI-2082 loudspeakers served as fills for the over/under balcony areas.

The system was powered by a combination of one IPX10:8, one TGX20 and two TGX10 power amplifiers from Dynacord and is controlled and monitored with SONICUE Sound System Software.

Powered loudspeakers also play a key role at the church, with eight compact PXM-12MP coaxial powered monitors providing on-stage sound, and ZLX-BT models on hand for portable PA support.

The system achieves the requisite high resolution for spoken word, the flexibility for various community events, and the high-output capacity for concert sound. In addition to the audio aspect, the system’s low-profile aesthetics fit the church’s architecture.

After seeing the results, Kim was pleased: “The X1 arrays are a solution we can trust to provide coverage from the front to the back of the hall. We didn’t even use processing at first and it still sounded fantastic. Many thanks to the Bosch team for technical support and advice on this project.”
