Established in 1954, The United Methodist Church of Vista (UMC Vista) has been committed to serving its community through spoken word, classic and contemporary worship services, and a music program that includes a chancel choir, praise band, hand bell choir and a developing children’s music ministry. When UMC Vista recently decided to improve the sound system in its sanctuary, they called on Sound Image to facilitate the installation of a new audio system built around VUE Audiotechnik loudspeaker systems.
VUE’s i-Class Integrator Systems proved to be the right solution for UMC Vista. Four VUE i-8 Compact Full Range Foreground Systems and two i-2×4.5 Surface-Mount Foreground Systems were hung on the ceiling between the fixtures, directed down toward the congregation seating area. The i-8s and i-2×4.5s provide consistent, even coverage across the congregation area without spilling sound toward the fixtures, causing unwanted sonic reflections.
