South Korea - Yeon Moo Dae Church is a church housed within a Korean Army training centre that draws from a mix of traditional and modern Christian influence. The construction of the church took 10 years to complete as it relied upon singular donations from nearly 10,000 individuals, over 600 Christian community churches and just about 600 church-related organisations.
Most recently, the church built a new sanctuary with a seating capacity that can welcome its 6,000-strong congregation. The room itself measures a generous 66m wide by 55m deep with a ceiling height of 15m. After visiting other large sanctuaries and listening to their sound systems the church committee decided that Clair Brothers was the solution for their audio requirements.
One of the locations the committee visited, the Joyful Church Training Centre, has the Clair Brothers CAT215 loudspeaker system installed. Following discussions about which combination of speakers would be best for the specific space at Yeon Moo Dae, the group calculated, along with local consultants from Clair Brothers, that the C15 “worked perfectly” in this church’s wide, open space.
The decision was made to order and install 16 C15s along with a host of other Clair Brothers gear including 12 iS218 subs, 40 kiTCurve12s for stage-fills, outer-fills and delays, eight 1AM+ and two 1.5AMs as stage monitors.
The mixing console installed was the Solid State Logic L-200. J.J. Song - head of Korean business development at Clair Brothers, comments: “The selection of the kiTCurves was made because of their excellent mixture of sound alongside the C15 main system. This 12-inch class of speakers delivers plenty of lows and unbelievable clarity for voice presence and music. The result here sounds wonderful.”
With regard to the installed video system, the new speaker cluster was set up without too much challenge in the effort to not impede the video screen during services. “The only minor challenge was that we weren’t able to put the iS218 subs on the ground. As expected, the sub hang worked out quite well.”
Confirming the success of the new installation, Army Chaplain and Lieutenant Colonel Soon Kyu Kim, states: “It makes me very happy when I see our congregation is happy. Now I know they can hear me very well!”
