Mackie DL32R a Blessing for La Junta Church of the Nazarene

In Install News, Web Articles by admin

untitledLocated on U.S. Highway 50, about 60 miles east of Pueblo, the town of La Junta is home to about 5,000 residents. Approximately 230-almost 5 percent of the population-are members of the La Junta Church of the Nazarene, and the congregation continues to grow.

The church’s contemporary-style services include a full praise band, and sound reinforcement had long been a challenge, due

to a very outdated system that fell far short of their needs. “The previous system had old, mostly blown speakers that should have been replaced ten years ago, two mediocre outboard EQs, and a crossover that was not doing anything,” recalls Lucas Lafferty, co-owner of systems integrator DK Audio Video of Colorado Springs. Lafferty’s team specified a new system, including a 1,600 watt Mackie HD1801 subwoofer with an 18-inch speaker that delivered all of the sub-lows required.

untitledIf you seek inspiration and perhaps a dose of humility, you might visit Montreal’s magnificent Marie-Reine-Du-Monde Basilique Cathedrale (Mary Queen of the World Cathedral Basilica). The interior may not be quite as grand as the Vatican’s St. Peter’s, after which the cathedral was modeled, but the gorgeous, 3 million cubic-foot building is a true gem. Inaugurated on Easter Sunday 1894, it was the first building in Montreal to cost more than one million dollars-so expensive that fundraising and construction took 24 years.

West Shore Church Upgrades to Allen & Heath dLive and ME-1s

untitledSpire AVL of Carslile, PA has replaced an older digital mixer at the West Shore Church in Mechanicsburg with an Allen & Heath dLive S7000 Surface. Spire AVL’s Seth Shoemaker explained the upgrade. “The church’s previous mixer had experienced technical difficulties and added nearly 25msec of latency in its processing,” he said. “We recommended the dLive because we knew it was a reliable mixer with very low latency and the drag-and-drop touch screens would simplify setups. We also provided fourteen ME-1 Personal Monitor Mixers to give the church’s musicians the ability to do their own in-ear monitor mix and we knew the dLive would integrate all of this very nicely.”

West Shore is an Evangelical Free Church with a 1500 seat worship center. The church’s stage includes 112 audio inputs allowing the band or choir to be placed almost anywhere on the stage while maintaining short cable lengths. Additional inputs are located in a catwalk area for overhead mic’ing and ambient pickup. An Allen & Heath DM64 MixRack and three DX32 Expanders bring all of these inputs to the dLive S7000 surface making it easy to patch the system digitally for worship services and other events. A Dante card in the DM64 feeds a digital multi-track recording system in another room.
