Sweden - A sound system from d&b has been installed at Stockholm’s historic Maria Magdalena church as part of the building’s renovation.
SoundCop Consulting, who provided consultation and installation services for the project, had initially chosen another system, but switched d&b’s xC-Series column loudspeakers after attending a demo by d&b’s local partner Arva Trading at another Stockholm church, Stefanskyrkan (Saint Stephens church).
SoundCop Consulting decided to go with a combination of d&b’s xC-Series 2-way passive column loudspeakers, xS-Series loudspeakers, and B4 cardioid subwoofers along with the 10D four channel amplifier.

SoundCop Consulting was very impressed with the results that they saw – or rather heard – at the demo.”
