Next era at Evangelical Holiness Church calls for new PA

SEOUL – With 1,500 seats for its 15,000 members, Jeonju-Paul Church is the largest Evangelical Holiness Church in South Korea. Coinciding with the inauguration of new Pastor Hyun-mo Shin, the church decided to upgrade the main loudspeaker system in the main auditorium. Although the sermons and religious services demand high level intelligibility for spoken word, amplification of the large choir and accompanying orchestra is also required.

Outline’s Seoul-based distributor Hebsiba Multimedia was commissioned to deploy a L-C-R system setup. Translating from a Greek term meaning “form”, “essence” or “type”, Eidos fittingly made its inauguration to mark this new chapter at the church. As such, the left and right hangs each comprise of 12 Outline Eidos 265 line-array elements together with a FlySub 15 enclosure. A further four Eidos 265 cabinets fulfil even coverage from the centre array.

Comprising two 6.5-inch mid/low-frequency transducers and a high-frequency compression driver with a 2.5-inch diaphragm loaded onto a 100° (horizontal dispersion) waveguide, the 21 kg weight of the Eidos makes it a powerful cabinet for its class. Positioned below the left and right hand side of the stage, a further pair of Outline LAB 15 subwoofers extend the lower frequencies down to 42Hz (+/- 3dB). The single long-stroke 15-inch loudspeaker is a hybrid waveguide indirect radiation subwoofer that can recover LF sound emission from the rear of its woofer.

T-Five Outline amplifiers power the system, while providing on-board DSP parameters. Each amplifier channel is capable of driving up to four Eidos 265s or two Flysub enclosures. In addition, a number of Outline Vegas 10 and Vegas 12 point-source enclosures can be deployed as stage monitors. During system set-up, the Hebsida Multimedia technical team relied on OpenArray 3D software for sound prediction, coverage and weight distribution calculations.
