Destination Church in Mobile, Alabama recently expanded, adding a new 1,250-seat sanctuary to its campus in a bid to keep up with an ever-growing congregation. Michael Evans of Alpha Sound & Lighting has done a lot of work with the church over the years and returned to implement the AV elements in the new sanctuary, including an Allen & Heath dLive S5000 digital mixing system for audio.

The church is no stranger to Allen & Heath, having purchased a GLD-80 console in 2016. The new dLive system offers additional production capabilities for the praise band, led by worship pastor Kyle Wilson.

‘In addition to obtaining high-quality, concert-level sound in the house, Kyle wanted to bring in a number of wireless in-ear monitors for his band,’ said Evans. ‘Plus, he wanted to be able to let them create their own personal monitor mixes. He had ambitious goals, and is tech-savvy, but was unsure of the next step. After I suggested using Allen & Heath’s dLive S5000 out front and ME personal mixing systems and explained how they would work, I saw the light go on in his eyes. He was like a mule looking at a new gate – perplexed for a moment, but then bam! He knew he had found the way.’

The system can manage up to 56 lines from distributed floor pockets onstage. The dLive DM64 MixRack supplies 64 mic/line inputs and 32 line outputs, gathering microphone and instrument signals before they are sent to the dLive S5000 control surface via a Cat-5 cable.

‘The musicians also love the ME system,’ added Evans. ‘Now, each can tailor their monitor mix to whatever works for them. As for the house, the sound couldn't be sweeter. Everyone is happy and, at the end of the day, that's what counts most.’
