Discovery Church has set a new standard for audio precision and excellence in the House of Worship market. The first of three stage-upgrades was recently completed, which now delivers controlled, high-quality audio for the congregation.
Based in Mount Evelyn, one of Melbourne’s outer eastern suburbs, Discovery Church is one of Melbourne’s largest churches, with 1,700 people attending services each Sunday.
PAVT’s Ben Clarke worked with the production team from Discovery Church and Paul Tucker from Mosaix Integrated, to blend the EAW QX & KF series loudspeakers, along with accompanying SB2001 Subwoofers and MicroWedge stage monitors.
The striking QX cabinets consists of 4 x 12″ LF Phase-Aligned Drivers with Co-Axial MF & HF horn-loaded drivers – while the KF394 is a premium 3-way loudspeaker, that offers even more capability and application flexibility with its ultra-compact enclosure for unprecedented utility.
The integration of premium components in the KF394 provide a –
LF 2× 10 in cone (Vented)
MF 1×1.4 in cone in a 3.5” co-axial driver, horn-loaded
HF 1× 1.4 in exit, 1.75” voice coil compression driver, horn-loaded.
Powersoft K6, K2’s and M50Q’s provide the power for the front of house QX564 speakers and the eight KF394 delay speakers around the venue. The incredible K20’s (with DSP-AESOP) power the dual and direct radiating 21” left & right SB2001 subs to align this well-balanced system.
The Powersoft K-Series amplifiers not only present immense power output, they are also all supplied in compact 1RU 8-10kg units, and significantly, provide Power Factor Correction (PFC) for extremely low power consumption.
The greatest challenge was to guarantee that each member of the congregation felt entirely engaged throughout the service, which includes live music as well as preaching. The EAW QX & KF loudspeakers meet this challenge and deliver the precise and full-range directivity required, enhancing the experience for everyone in the church.
“We are very happy with the new EAW speaker system and Mozaix’s superb installation. It more than meets our brief of a warm, rich and very musical speaker system delivering very high intelligibility to all seats in the auditorium, while minimizing sound spill onto the walls and ceiling, all connecting each person, regardless of seating location, to those on the platform” Peter MacLean, Discovery Church
