St Sergius of Radonezh gains added reinforcement


The Russian Orthodox church is going through a period of growth, which has resulted in the building of several new churches. One such new sanctuary is the Church Of St Sergius of Radonezh, which opened in 2017 at Khodynka Field, a few miles north-west of Moscow, without a sound system. This has been recently rectified with the installation of Yamaha VXL Series slim line array speakers by AV integrator iProjector.

The reason for not including a sound system initially was because Russian Orthodox services are conducted almost entirely in melodic chants or singing, which echoes throughout the reverberant space. However, it soon became apparent that churchgoers were struggling to hear the services if they weren’t sat in the centre of the sanctuary. The monks sought a solution and turned to Roman Belyaev of iProjector, who specified four Yamaha VXL1W-16 slim line array speakers with three PA2120 amplifiers and an MTX3 matrix processor.

The Yamaha speakers feature wide dispersion characteristics that ensure everyone can hear clearly, wherever they sit inside the church. In addition, their slimline profile helps them to remain discreet and to not distract from the sanctuary’s architectural aesthetic. The MTX3 processor also includes Dan Dugan automixing, which removes the need to worry about mixing the sound for every service.

‘The system delivers a very natural sound without compromising the church’s visual appeal, helping worshippers to concentrate solely on the services, without any distractions,’ said Belyaev.
