By PSW Staff • March 18, 2013 Community church Chooses QSC KLA & K Series for versatility and portability. Every Sunday the Shore Community Church sets up and packs down their own audio equipment before and after each service in the Albany Junior High School’s sports hall. In the past they had used an ageing, very large and heavy audio system. The challenge assigned to local installer Halogen Audio was to find a system that met the church’s high audio expectations while also meeting their requirements for portability and ease of set up. After trying our various options they determined that the QSC KLA Active Line Array System, consisting of four KLA12 elements and two KW181 subwoofers, was the ideal solution. The church required an audio system that was suitable for both speech and the church band. It needed to provide high quality, even sound coverage across the large hall space, and the allowance to grow with the church into a larger venue. The KLA speakers are very versatile in terms of mounting options, so they can easily be used as part of an installed system when the church moves into a permanent venue. The QSC system also won favours from the congregation for the ease with which it could be set up and packed away each Sunday — with its simple lift, click and play approach, the fixed arcuate, active line array system can be deployed in a fraction of the time required by comparable line array products. The Shore Community Church was so happy with the KLA system that they decided to add a full QSC K Series monitor system to their order with Halogen Audio, consisting of four K12 Active Loudspeakers and a K8 dedicated to monitoring a drum kit. The 1000W amplification and six-year warranty on the K Series, in particular, helped to swing the deal. Dave Simpson, leader of the Shore Community Church, explains: “The level of support we received from Halogen Audio, coupled with the high quality and suitability of the QSC equipment for our application, meant we were very comfortable placing an order for the equipment.” QSC Comments Have something to say about this PSW content?
