Saint Thomas updates mic and speaker setup

South Africa:

Saint Thomas Church in Linden, Johannesburg recently sought a sound system upgrade that would not only sound good, but also not detract from the sanctuary’s aesthetics and not break the bank in terms of cost. The church turned to DWR Distribution and found a solution comprising Quest Audio loudspeakers and Audix microphones.

Two Quest HPI8i two-way passive loudspeakers cover the left and right of the main hall. They are hidden within the church’s woodwork, while a single, central HPI111 compact loudspeaker hangs from the middle of the ceiling. An additional white HPI5 high-output loudspeaker sits in the room adjacent to the main hall. The amplifier system is hidden behind the choir section with two QA2004 amplifiers providing the power needed to drive this simple setup.

‘We didn’t want it to look out of place and we did need to get better sound,’ confirmed Gift Chanza, head of the Sound Ministry at Saint Thomas. ‘The Quest loudspeakers were exactly what we needed.’

For the new microphone setup, the church purchased four ADX12 podium gooseneck condenser microphones for speech. Two ADX40 hanging overhead microphones are hung to the left and right of the choir and a pair of OM2 dynamic microphones cover the lead vocals during church hymns.

‘The congregants who are unaware of the sound setup came up to me after the sermon and gave me compliments on the sound,’ said Chanza, who is happy with the quality of the new microphones. ‘I really feel that I made the right choice. The speakers and microphones are amazing.’
