Out with the old at Crossline Church


Crossline Church in El Cajon, California has undergone its first sound system upgrade in 20 years, as Essex Sound has installed a solution from Vue Audiotechnik as part of a comprehensive renovation of the church’s live sound and production systems.

‘The original PA was a decades-old collection of home-made powered boxes with older name-branded transducers inside,’ recalled Larry McNamer, owner of Essex Sound. ‘There were no names on any of the cabinets, however, so it was impossible to know where they came from. But the old system was totally inadequate in terms intelligibility, and it took us a whole day to take them down because they were so heavy.’

The sanctuary has a capacity for 885 congregants. The church holds three services each week, with both traditional and contemporary options. Therefore, versatility, intelligibility and musicality were all on the list of project requirements for Essex Sound, leading to a design comprising left, centre and right arrays each comprising eight Vue al-4 subcompact line array elements. For low-frequency support, two hs-25 dual 15-inch ACM subwoofers have been positioned at floor level on either side of the main stage. Power and processing are courtesy of three rack-mounted VueDrive V3 Systems Engines, while on-board Vuedrive electronics power the subs. The entire system is networked and managed via SystemVue software, while a Midas M32 Live console handles the mix with a M32C rack-mount system synced for additional channel count.

‘From the initial phone call, we had about a week and a half to complete this job,’ said McNamer. ‘That’s exceptionally short. I really have to call out Greg Kirkland from Vue for all his input, as well as the rest of the Vue team. Their support really stood out and ultimately played a big part in making this happen on time and on budget.’
