Lakewood Church, located in Houston, Texas and one of the largest churches in the United States, has outfitted each of its two main audio control rooms with a pair of KK Audio Labs DS-8 eight-inch, two-way powered audio monitors.

The two identical rooms, designed by the Russ Berger Design Group and featuring Euphonix 5-B digital mixing consoles, both handle on-air broadcast duties as well as audio post production, and are additionally tied to a music recording studio.

“We’ve been longstanding with our old cabinets and it was time to update,” explains Reed Hall, director of audio and technical production at the church, a former sports arena and home of Joel Osteen Ministries. “Everybody felt that there was something a lot better out there.”

“We took a listen to the DS-8s and they sounded great. We never mix off just one reference, but these have become our primary reference cabinets. We’re loving them.”

Reed and his audio staff, who are based in a 27,000-square-foot, five-story, purpose-built building adjacent to the ministry’s 16,000-seat arena, did their due diligence, he reports.

“We did extensive testing. We’ve got a Grammy Award-winning engineer on staff and had several Grammy-winners that play on major productions listen, also.”

Reed is now making arrangements for the video staff at Lakewood Church’s media center to evaluate KK audio labs’ new, smaller DS-6 reference monitors for installation in a number of video edit suites.

The KK audio labs DS-8 combines an eight-inch low frequency driver with proprietary cone material and a one-inch custom-designed titanium high frequency composite tweeter.

Two KK audio labs amplifier modules deliver 200W to the tweeter and 350W to the woofer. Four meticulously tuned presets optimize the monitor for any listening environment.

The advanced cabinet design employs the company’s proprietary Acoustic Cabinet Control (ACC) to align and tune the low frequencies. The result is a very linear and quick transient response along with stunning bass impact and low distortion.
