The Mosaic Church in Henderson, NV was recently equipped with d&b audiotechnik A-Series augmented arrays and additional components in a sound reinforcement upgrade project in the worship sanctuary.
The A-Series was recommended by CCS Presentation Systems of Las Vegas, an AV company with 23 locations across the U.S. “We were fortunate enough to have a clean canvas to work with,” explains Gilbert Medina, director of business development for CCS. “The A-Series fit our performance and budget requirements, and the church was aware of the d&b brand so when I made the A-Series recommendation and that it could meet their budget needs, they approved our design. One of the main project objectives was to provide an enhanced guest experience. The d&b ArrayCalc simulation software verified it would not only cover the room appropriately but would easily meet the SPL requirements while minimizing the impact to sightlines.”
Specifically, the new system employs six AL90 loudspeakers (flown three per side, stereo) and four center ceiling-mounted Yi-SUB subwoofers (stereo summed) driven by two 30D amplifiers.The system was commissioned by d&b support specialist Mark Rush.
Mosaic Church presents contemporary worship with high-energy live music, video and theatrical lighting elements. Pre-COVID, the church would normally seat approximately 1,100 but due to social distancing, capacity is limited based on state regulations.
“The d&b A-Series is the perfect fit for our venue,” concludes John Solomon, worship pastor at the church. “The compact footprint and wide coverage provide an impactful and immersive experience for us. The directionality is especially impressive as we have high gain before feedback with omni-directional headset condensers very close to directly underneath the arrays. The flown subs provide surprising evenness throughout the room and provide full low end without being too physically impactful up close. Transparent warm and clear are words we’ve used to describe the sound and we are eager to further expand our system as we grow.”
