The House in Modesto upgrades with Adamson

USA:

A recent upgrade to an Adamson sound reinforcement system is reportedly changing the way that the 1,800-person congregation at The House in Modesto, California, can experience worship. While the pandemic limited live services temporarily, The House has kept the community close with online worship and outreach and is ready to welcome its full church family back home.

Jason Rightnour, audio director at The House, chose to install Adamson speakers in the auditorium after auditioning products from several other manufacturers. Rightnour was impressed by both the clarity and power of the Adamson product line, he explained. “I went to tradeshows, conventions and speaker shootouts but I couldn't find a system that fit our needs until Adamson. Once I heard this PA, I was in shock with how clean the box sounded with its crystal-clear highs and no distortion.”

It was important for the AV team that this new system provided quality sound without any tonal loss, harsh tones or distortion for both their regular services and special events like concerts or youth services, which tend to be run at a higher decibel level. With its minimal footprint, the Adamson system has also allowed the church to maintain great sightlines and a clean aesthetic in their auditorium.

The system installed by Clark Productions comprises two main arrays of eight S10 boxes, four S10n on top and four S10 underneath. Low end coverage is from six E219 flown above the centre of the stage in an end-fire configuration, while two E119 placed on the floor provide additional presence. Two S10p point source cabinets flank each side of the arrays for side fills, while 10 PC5 speakers act as front fill. The balcony features seven S10p, while M12 are used on stage as monitors for the pastoral team.

The house AV team was impressed with the upgrade. Colby Higgins, the church’s monitor engineer, stated: “I love the Adamson system, it sounds much better than our previous PA. I am blown away by how a small box like the S10 can output more both in clarity and volume than our previous bigger, clunky boxes.”

Rightnour echoes this sentiment: “When I first saw the PA being flown into position with eight boxes per side, I was thinking, ‘this is not going to be enough PA to fill this room’. But after the rig was installed and tuned, I was in shock with how loud it got,” he commented.

Church members were also quick to comment on the upgraded system. Rightnour received compliments on the install on the very first weekend the PA was deployed. “I had different people come up and tell me how much better it sounded, that there was clarity in the pastors’ speeches as well as a much clearer sound when the band played,” he concluded. “Many of these people had never said anything to me in the five years I’ve been running sound for the church.”
