Tabernacle of Glory powers four days of celebration


The Tabernacle of Glory non-denominational church has branches in Miami, New York, Boston and Haiti. Each year, the entire congregation gathers in the church’s home base of Miami to celebrate the final four days of a 40-day fast at the 8,000-seat Watsco Center. To ensure everyone in attendance could hear the worship, song and prayer delivered, the venue’s Turbosound Flashline loudspeaker system was put to use, driven by Powersoft X4 and X4L amplifiers.

‘One of the characteristics of this event is that the crowd is very responsive,’ explained Lennox Foster from Sound Media, who was brought in to design a system with enough headroom to keep the system volume above the level of crowd noise while maintaining the speech intelligibility and supplying enough low-end intensity for the music. ‘The sound system has to have enough dynamic headroom to surpass the crowd noise, which can get up to around 110dB. When we were working at the event, the amps still had about 12-16dB of headroom, even when the crowd was at its loudest.’

Foster employed Powersoft’s ArmoníaPlus to manage the entire sound system at the Watsco Center. He used 18 Powersoft X4 four-channel amplifiers to power 24 flown TurboSound TFS-900H speakers, 18 flown TFA-600L and 16 flown TFA-600H speakers, as well as the 10 TFA-600HW speakers used as front-fills. Meanwhile, Four Powersoft X4L amplifiers provided the power for 24 TurboSound TFS-900L ground-stacked subs.

In addition, nine of Powersoft’s T Series amplifiers were deployed for powering the monitor setup.

‘We chose this combination of TurboSound loudspeakers and Powersoft amplifiers because we needed to cover the whole spectrum of sound, and these are truly full-range loudspeakers,’ said Foster. ‘There's a lot of demand on the amplifiers to perform in this space at a very high energy level, because this event is very musically based, with a lot for low-frequencies from the subs. But at the same time the amplifiers need to be lightweight and efficient. All the Powersoft amps we used performed very well, and were not stressed in any way. In addition, these amps gave us a small footprint on the floor, with less power draw than other amplifiers.’
