The Temple Church in Nashville, Tennessee features worship services heavily filled with music, including performances from its own gospel choir and full band that is usually accompanied by the congregation’s ‘enthusiastic participation’. To support this, the church invested in a sound reinforcement system with products from Alcons Audio.

‘The church has a lot of talented musicians and singers. The musical director has very high standards and quality bass was also really important,’ commented Eddy Hobby, owner of Prosonic AVL who manages the church’s AV systems. ‘They wanted great sound, but it was also important that there were no sightline issues between the congregation and the video screens.’

When looking for the right system, Hobby was introduced to Scott Hough from Griffith Sales who represented Alcons Audio. This was followed by a discussion with sales manager David Rahn, who gave a demonstration in the church with a system of two Alcons Audio LR16s and RR12 compact line array modules.

‘The room is around 160° wide, so getting the coverage right was crucial. At the same time, they still wanted a really big, immersive sound,’ said Rahn. ‘Due to architectural and rigging challenges, the left and right arrays had to be flown close together, almost as a dual central cluster. Mitigating the interference between the two line arrays was also challenging. However, due to the precise accuracy of the cylindrical wavefront, along with a centrally deployed RR12 point source array module, the transitions were incredibly smooth, and the achieved coverage was optimal and precise.’

The church was impressed with the demo and decided to choose a system that was almost identical to it. This consisted of six LR16 compact line array modules and an LR16B line array bass module on each side that were flown close together above the front centre of the stage but also angled outwards to cover the congregation. Between these, an RR12 point source array was flown and angled down for the front-fill, while a BQ211 high-output subwoofer was placed on the floor on the sides of the stage. These are all powered and controlled by three Sentinel10 amplified loudspeaker controllers.
