Gates Sound Provide House of Worship Audio Solutions with EV’

February 24th, 2005

The main system is in a large tent area used for additional service seating and larger events. In a potentially problematic acoustic environment like this, controlled coverage and intelligibility is essential. Doug Gates looked to high-quality, affordable solutions from EV to get the job done. The EV equipment list is as follows: four Q66™ amplifiers, two QRx™ 153/75 main loudspeakers (in white finish), four Eliminator™ I E 15-inch monitors, two FRi+™ 181S 18-inch subwoofers, four EVID™ 4.2 and four EVID 6.2s (in white finish).

Gates reported: “The church wanted speakers with higher SPL capacity than what they had before, also with full pattern control and articulation for both speech and music. This area is actually an overflow service area, basically a large tent where they can seat extra people and put on larger events and concerts. The sound quality has been considerably improved - the QRx boxes’ coverage and intelligibility are superb.“

“In terms of getting the best sound quality within their price range, I thought it would be best for them to invest in high-quality loudspeakers and hang on to their existing console. I recently installed six QRx boxes at another church in the area, and was very happy with the results. They’re a really flexible loudspeaker - I even own four of them for my own rig, which I run with EV P3000™ amplifiers. For live or installed sound, nothing else gives you as much value for money as QRx. The flying hardware, the rotatable horn, and the general quality of the components make the QRx hard to beat at this price.“

“EV is all about application-specific solutions. I installed four EVID 4.2 and four EVID 6.2 speakers outside by the patio reception area. These are used for playing background music for baptism services and other outdoor events. They are the ideal size, look great and mount easily. The church is growing, and they have plans for additional buildings and service areas like this. Working with EV means you can find the right sized and right priced speaker for the job, all with EV’s proven reliability and quality.“
