L-Acoustics keeps out of sight at Evergreen Ministries


AV integrator Parkway Electric & Communications has designed and installed an L-Acoustics Syva sound system for Evergreen Ministries, a house of worship located in Hudsonville. With the church's original audio installation prioritising the venue's aesthetic appearance over intelligibility, leaders felt it was no longer suitable for purpose and sought a replacement.

‘All of the components in the old sound system were flown,’ said Todd Billin, design and sales engineer at Parkway Electric & Communications. ‘They had to hang them in such a way as to avoid creating sightline problems, but that wasn’t necessarily the best configuration for the sound. It was kind of disembodied and it wasn’t coming from the stage.’

To solve these issues, Parkway Electric & Communications set up a pair of Syva and Syva Low enclosures on either side of the stage, as well as four Syva subs that were installed underneath the stage. Additionally, an X12 short-throw loudspeaker has been flown above the centre of the stage together with four 5XTs for front-fill. The loudspeakers are powered by three LA4X amplified controllers.

‘The Syva system sounds fantastic and it looks just as good as it sounds,’ said Adam Locker, director of operations and worship at Evergreen Ministries. ‘In the beginning, I was concerned that after all this time of having a big, rock concert-type PA system up near the ceiling that people would wonder if something like the Syva could really deliver the same amount of sound but it does, and it delivers it with so much more quality and presence. We were all surprised that something so slim and sleek could give us this kind of coverage.’
