Danish priest clears up sound for congregation with K-array10 November 2016
When the Kvaglund Church in Esbjerg, a seaport town in the southwest of Denmark, needed an upgrade to their existing sound system, they relied heavily upon the knowledge of none other than the musically inclined priest of the congregation.
Having heard a K-array system in use at the Holmsborg bible camp during the summer, pastor Jakob Wilms Nielsen invited dealer MAVT to demo a K-array system to combat the terrible acoustics in the chapel.
Jan Juul Hansen of MAVT brought in the KP102 Python loudspeaker and a 12” KMT12 subwoofer to test in the sanctuary. While the system’s capabilities were being demonstrated, Nielsen picked up a guitar and began playing. After the first few rifts, he was more than convinced.
Nielsen says: “You can even hear the strings. I’ve never heard such clearness and natural acoustics. There is no comparison.
After the enthusiastic thumbs up from the pastor, MAVT began work to design, install, and program the layout of the audio system. Since the church is divided into two areas – the actual congregation plus a small meeting room which are separated by a removable partition – two systems were installed.
Two KP102 Pythons paired with a KMT12 sub were installed in the chapel using an invisible cable technique to cover all wiring. The system in the meeting room consists of two KP52 half-meter Pythons and a KU50 subwoofer inset in the wall. Both systems are powered a KA24 amplifier and are programmed to combine as one system when the partition is removed to open up the space.
