Located in Brooklyn, New York, the Basilica of Regina Pacis is part of the Roman Catholic Diocese that is a ‘spiritual hub’ for members of the parish of St Rosalia-Regina Pacis. It once again turned to Monte Bros to upgrade its sound system recently, leading to the installation of three Powersoft Quattrocanali 1204 amplifier platforms.

‘Acoustically, it's extremely difficult to design a sound system for a church like the Basilica of Regina Pacis,’ said Monte Bro’s Steve Minozzi, who designed the sound system. ‘It's a long, rectangular space with a lot of hard surfaces, a concave ceiling and a concave sanctuary. That breaks every acoustic rule in the book but we have to make the sound system work for the space and it has to work automatically. So, when it comes to amplification in these kinds of basilicas, we need a heavy lifter and the Powersoft Quattrocanali 1204 is a heavy lifter.’

Monte Bros was chosen to install the system due its partnership with the Basilica of Regina Pacis. It installed a sound system in 1989, which was upgraded in 2002. ‘Heat dispersion is another problem in big installs like this because they need a lot of amplifiers,’ Minozzi continued. ‘That was a main reason we upgraded the system using the Quattrocanali 1204. Inside the church, it's a beautiful space. When you put in a new sound system, you obviously don't want to desecrate the appearance in any way. One of the important features of the Powersoft Quattrocanali 1204 is that it senses changes in ohmage, because the amplifiers have to deal with changes due to capacitance and other anomalies. Since each bank of speakers is on its own Quattrocanali channel, if one speaker goes bad, the amp will automatically sense the change and reajust. That's why we chose Powersoft.’
