A new building for Alexandria Presbyterian Church in Alexandria, Virginia, has seen the first US installation of Alcons’ QRP20 pro-ribbon loudspeaker systems. Launched in 2021, the slim design, natural sound reproduction, superb intelligibility and throw of the QRP20 is the perfect solution for the church’s fan-shaped auditorium.

Located around seven miles (11 km) from the centre of Washington DC, in 2020 Alexandria Presbyterian Church was given planning permission to demolish its existing building in West Braddock Street and build a brand new, 22,794 ft2 (2118 m2) home. Worship at the church includes sermons, a praise band playing both contemporary songs and traditional hymns, adult and youth choirs. The main auditorium needed an audio system that would seamlessly deliver all of these in high quality to every member of the congregation. The clean lines of the architecture also meant that it was desirable to conceal the loudspeakers.

Times Square Church (TSC) on West 51st Street in Manhattan’s Theatre District has a long and diverse history. Initially built by Warner Brothers in 1930 as a movie palace known as the Warner Hollywood Theatre, the venue later transitioned into the Mark Hellinger Theatre, which hosted iconic Broadway musicals like My Fair Lady and Jesus Christ Superstar.

In 1991, the space was once again repurposed, this time as an interdenominational house of worship under the direction of Pastor David Wilkerson, author of The Cross and the Switchblade. He wisely chose to preserve the venue’s modern façade and rococo interior, now New York City landmarks. With a room this stunning, it was only fitting that it should also sound equally beautiful. Today, it does, thanks to a new L-Acoustics K3i loudspeaker system driven via a DiGiCo Quantum338 mixing console, both of which were installed by Special Event Services (SES) Integration.
