New Zealand:

Having spent almost two years relocating, Tauranga Elim Church is now elevating worship services and other events with an upgraded JBL loudspeaker system. Located in New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty, the church’s the new location is much larger than the previous building and includes an auditorium for accommodating up to 550 congregants.

“As a church, we were blessed to have the opportunity to develop the shell of an industrial building into an awesome place of worship that speaks to the flavour and character of our people,” explained Tauranga Elim AV coordinator Sean Verwey. “For the audio system in our auditorium, our requirements were simple - we wanted a system that sounded great, was punchy yet smooth through the dynamic range of a service, suited our style of music, covered the wide space evenly and overcame the challenging acoustics of the venue.”

After experimenting with various speakers from different manufacturers, Tauranga Elim outfitted the auditorium with two JBL CBT1000 loudspeakers. Supplied by Sound and Vision Connection. Custom-flown in a left-right configuration, the line array column enclosures incorporate JBL’s Constant Beamwidth Technology, which provides adjustable vertical coverage and a tapered horizontal waveguide to deliver consistent sound across the auditorium. A JBL CBT 70J-1 two-way line array column loudspeaker was added to ensure even audio distribution on the auditorium’s mezzanine level.

“During the demonstrations, we heard some great systems. Ultimately, we felt what Harman and JBL Professional offered met our requirements perfectly,” furthers Verwey. “The JBL CBT1000 loudspeakers sound simply amazing and provide more than enough grunt for youth services and special events yet are easy to mix during a regular Sunday service.” Complementing the column loudspeakers with accurate, low-frequency performance, the system includes a JBL VT4883 subcompact dual 12-inch subwoofer flown low-mid extension. Ground stacked under the stage, a VTX G28 dual 18-inch ground subwoofer enhances the low-end down to 22Hz (-10dB) for contemporary music worship services. Crown I-Tech 3500HD and CDi 4|300 four channel amplifiers provide ample power in addition to loudspeaker processing for the entire system.

“The JBL CBT1000 line array column loudspeaker is a perfect solution for customers looking for line array loudspeakers but with budget limitations,” commented Harman Church Audio Specialist Eli Murray from JBL Professional distributor JPRO. “Its consistency in tone from soft levels to loud levels, how it overcomes tricky acoustic spaces and its ability to cover audio over wide and long distances make it an asset for church and auditorium environments today.”
