South Africa - Saint Thomas Church in Linden sought to upgrade its sound, with a quality solution that would not detract from the church’s looks and not break the bank. They got their solution from DWR Distribution in the form of Quest Audio and Audix microphones.
“We didn’t want it to look out of place and we did need to get better sound,” says Gift Chanza the head of Sound Ministry at Saint Thomas, “The Quest loudspeakers were exactly what we needed”. Three HPI Quest speakers were installed in the main hall. The left and right being handled by two Quest HPI8i two-way passive loudspeakers hidden within the Churches woodwork and the centre speaker, a Quest HPI111 compact loudspeaker, hangs from the middle of the ceiling.
An additional White HPI5 high output loudspeaker sits in the room adjacent main hall. These speakers have the church fully covered for sound. The amp system is hidden behind the choir section with two QA2004 Amplifiers sitting inside a box, this neat system was a priority for Saint Thomas as they wished to keep the look of the church and not have the sound displaying as a distraction.
To get the best out of the speakers the church had also decided to invest in some Audix Microphones. Four ADX12 podium gooseneck condenser microphones were chosen to mic certain sections of church for speech, one per podium and two at certain sections where prayer is given.
Two ADX40 hanging overhead microphones were hung left and right of the choir given the singers ample volume and clarity and an additional install of two OM2 dynamic microphones for the lead vocals during church hymns.
Jaco Beukes from DWR Distribution, comments: “The church’s acoustics are good, so the Quest Loud-Speakers and Audix Microphones were really great additions to make it all the better.”
