Eagle Church, Indiana, installed a new sound reinforcement set up in March 2018 using loudspeaker technology drawn from the WorxAudio catalog of PreSonus Audio Electronics.
Force Technology Solutions an AV design/build firm servicing the worship, broadcast, and commercial markets, was contracted to design and install the new sound reinforcement system at Eagle Church. After consulting with church leadership to ascertain their requirements, the Force Technology Solutions team ultimately deployed a system consisting of WorxAudio XL1 two-way, high efficiency, line array loudspeakers, V5 compact line array enclosures, and TL218SS extreme high SPL extended bass subwoofers. Brady Davis, Director of Sales at Force Technology Solutions, heads up the company’s sales and system design efforts.
Brady explained: “Eagle Church is housed in a contemporary structure, the sanctuary is a multi-use space that is 145 feet wide by 85 feet long. The stage is recessed into the centre of the room and it faces into the width of the space. Music plays a vital role in their services.
“The new sound system consists of two flown 9-element WorxAudio XL1 loudspeaker clusters one each for the left and right sides of the stage. Over the front edge of the stage, there is a centre cluster consisting of eight WorxAudio V5 compact line array enclosures. Low frequency support is provided by six WorxAudio TL218SS subwoofers. These enclosures are flown in two 3-box end-fire arrays suspended just slightly behind the centre V5 loudspeaker hang.
Brady added: “When you need to cover a wide area—as we did on this project—the PreSonus WorxAudio loudspeakers are a great choice. The XL1s have an industry leading horizontal dispersion of 160 degrees, which is considerably more so than competing products. The LCR (left-centre-right) design of this system allows the left and right hangs to cover the entire facility, with the centre V5 hang providing additional vocal support.
The system has been performing above and beyond expectations, Brady said: “Early returns have been extremely positive from the client and that confirms our preference for PreSonus. The WorxAudio products continue to be a go-to product line for us in many applications. They consistently deliver for our clients and offer excellent quality with exceptional support and value.”
