E London church selects EV

UK: An East London church has purchased an Electro-Voice sound system, writes PSN-e. The popular Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC) has just relocated from its long-term Hackney home to a former cinema in Walthamstow due to construction works relating to the 2012 Olympic Games. While the new site will only serve as a temporary home for KICC, the church has prioritised a highly-specified sound system to cope with the demanding nature of its musical content.

UK: An East London church has purchased an Electro-Voice sound system, writes PSN-e. The popular Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC) has just relocated from its long-term Hackney home to a former cinema in Walthamstow due to construction works relating to the 2012 Olympic Games. While the new site will only serve as a temporary home for KICC, the church has prioritised a highly-specified sound system to cope with the demanding nature of its musical content.

Local PA rental and installation company Systems Etc was enlisted to advise the church on the most suitable specification. Following a successful demonstration at EV's UK distributor, Shuttlesound, Systems Etc's Ricky Ramsay devised a system incorporating four EV Xi1082s, installed underneath the 1,000-seat venue's balcony; two pairs of Xi1152 64AFs and Xi1152 90AFs above and to the side of the stage; and three RX218s for bass, fitted under the stage. Live musicians have access to Aviom personal monitoring systems, while EV's Phoenix range cabinets have been supplied for the choir and other vocalists.

Power is from EV's P3000 and P1200 RL amplifiers, with control courtesy of the manufacturer's NetMax audio processor and matrix.

"I am delighted with the speech clarity of the system, and with the SPL. I find it handles my kind of production very well," commented KICC sound engineer Dipo Fasade, who noted that Systems Etc provided training, service and support to the church's eight-strong live sound team.
