Aalborg City Church recently moved to a new, larger sanctuary to accommodate its congregation, which has grown from just 12 when the church opened in 1926 to around 1,000 people. The new facility can host 750 congregants at any one time and is equipped with an EM Acoustics Halo-C compact line array system supplied by Alfa Audio.

‘A line array system seemed to be a no brainer for the venue – we just needed to find the right one,’ explained Alfa Audio’s Torsten Matthiessen. ‘There are two clear priorities for any modern church system: Firstly, it needs to sound great from a musical point of view, as there will be a full band on stage for a large part of the service. Secondly, it has to be able to deliver crystal clear intelligibility, as the spoken word is also a key element of the service. My feeling was that Halo-C would fit the bill perfectly, so I suggested that they should consider it.’

Anders Molin, who serves as the church’s AV consultant, was initially looking at systems from a manufacturer that the church had previously installed systems from. ‘Torsten recommended that I look at Halo-C,’ Mr Molin recalled. ‘I wasn’t familiar with it, but after a visit to the factory in Cranleigh where we were able to hear the full EM Acoustics range as well as get to meet and discuss extensively with EM’s founders and designers, Ed and Mike, I was convinced that Halo-C was the right choice for us.’

This all led the installation of 12 Halo-C elements in left and right hangs of six. Four EPX-8 cabinets were equipped for side-fill along with two EMS-61 speakers for front-fill and an MSE-218 subwoofer beneath the stage. An EM Acoustics DQ10 amplifier powers the Halo-C cabinets, while an AD9 drives the sub and front-fills. The EPX-8 side-fills are self-powered.

‘The EM Acoustics system sounds every bit as satisfying as the other systems I considered, even less cost-effective solutions, so I’m confident that we ended up the very best system for our requirements,’ said Mr Molin. ‘To prove the point, we’ve had lots of comments from the congregation about how good the sound is in the new building, as well as remarks from visiting sound engineers who have come in with their bands about the quality of the Halo-C boxes.’
