Green Hill Church, a Korean-language Presbyterian house of worship in Orlando, has upgraded its sanctuary sound reinforcement system with the installation of L-Acoustics KIVA line arrays. Laservision World of Los Angeles performed the system design and installation.
According to Laservision sales and managing director Joshua Kim and System Integration general manager Nathan Kim, the 450-seat worship space now benefits from left and right arrays each comprised of six KIVA enclosures flown beneath two KILO low frequency extension enclosures.
A pair of SB18i subs further extends the low-frequency range of the system, and all enclosures are powered and processed by a total of three LA4 amplified controllers.
With a 50-member choir, 20-piece orchestra and praise team featuring seven vocalists and six-piece praise band, Green Hill offers a mix of both traditional and contemporary worship music.
“The church required a compact system with not only enough punch and headroom to accommodate its own musicians and touring acts, but also the intelligibility to allow the senior pastor’s message to come across loud and clear to every seat in the house,” says Joshua Kim. “We’ve done a number of KIVA installs in the past few years and I was very confident that it would be ideal for this project as well.”
“Everyone here at the church has been very satisfied with the sound of the new system,” adds Green Hill sound director Tae Um. “The combination of KIVA, KILO and SB18i fully covers our sanctuary without the need for any fills—exactly like SOUNDVISION predicted—and as small as the system is, it very pleasantly surprised the media director and praise and worship team with its powerful yet detailed performance.”
