Northside Christian Church of Spring, Texas, recently installed a new sound system featuring loudspeakers and subwoofers from EAW as part of the development of the church’s new worship facility.
Vance Breshears and Kelly Dunlop of El Cajon, California-based Sound Technology Consultants were the A/V and lighting design consultants for the project, and the A/V installation contractor was David Hairel and a team from Hairel Enterprises of Conroe, Texas. The church team included music director Jeremi Carnes and mix engineer Jose Barni.
Other key individuals included Bruce Green from Irvine, California-based Visioneering Studios, who served as design architect for the new facility, and Kirk Guillory from Columbia, Maryland-based Waldon Studio, who was the project architect.
EAW products selected for the system included AX364 arrayable install loudspeakers, MK8196 two-way installation loudspeakers and AX122 subwoofers. The system is configured in a multi-channel LCR array, where all three primary sources and their delay elements provide coverage to all seating areas.
Vance Breshears explained the choice of speakers, stating, “The AX products provide a good blend of pattern control, output and sound quality at a very reasonable cost. The MK8196 units were used for downfill and delay speakers. With the asymmetrical layout of the room, it took a combination of primary coverage, delay and fill speakers to get coverage to all seating areas.”
Jeremi Carnes stated, “The new system and EAW speakers really enhance our worship experience. Sound Technology Consultants and Hairel Enterprises have done a fantastic job in both design and installation. We so appreciate and have benefited from their attention to detail.”
