Big Knob Audio has installed an Adamson IS-Series loudspeaker system at IFGF Semarang's new campus in Semarang, Central Java. The church held a rigorous audition process, comparing five audio solutions, in the main auditorium, which seats up to 650 worshippers for contemporary services that are describd as musically rich.

'We heard the other four systems first, and none had the clarity or impact of the Adamson IS-Series,' said Dibya Krisnanda, IFGF Semarang’s senior engineer. 'As soon as we heard it, we knew we’d found what we were looking for.'

Left and right arrays of five IS7 enclosures each hang beneath single IS118 subwoofers. Four additional E119 subs are installed on the ground for further low-end support.

'The ultra-compact IS7 cabinets pack a lot of SPL and sound like a much larger system, and the E119s are just a world apart from any other subwoofer on the market, added Krisnanda. 'We can get the furniture literally shaking if we want to.'

'The installation crews love the IS-Series because it is incredibly light considering its capabilities and goes up so easily,' explained Timo Wibianto, senior partner at Big Knob Audio. 'It’s just a matter of following the instructions from Adamson’s Blueprint AV software regarding the angling and tilting. It’s as simple as that.'

Since moving in to the new campus, both the clergy and congregation at IFGF Semarang have reported a significant increase in the clarity and quality of their services – particularly the music ministry.

'This system is just so flexible,' said Steve Widjaja, one of the church’s audio department volunteers. 'You want it loud? You’ll get loud. You want it musical? You’ll get musical. It’s so enjoyable to mix on this system. Regardless of what you throw at it, the Adamson IS-Series will deliver.'
