Bartley Christian Church had been looking to upgrade their audio system since 2018. After two years of research and speaking with existing users, they eventually made the decision to go with Danley Sound Labs. Soundsmith Solutions, Danley distributor for Singapore and Malaysia, were tasked to design an audio system that would provide even coverage for their 1,200 seat auditorium.
The existing system, being 10 years old, was showing its age and struggling to keep up with the higher impact music being played in church. Additionally, the way the previous system was designed and installed it interfered with the line of sight to the projection screen. Some seats in the house had an obstructed view of the stage and screen.
Soundsmith Solutions had to design a powerful system with a fairly small footprint to meet the growing needs of the church. The J7’s proved to be the right box for this hall. The system now consists of two J7s, two SH95s, for down fill, and two SH46s as side fills. Also, four TH118XL, two per side, were placed behind the loudspeakers and six SH-Mini were also used as front fills. This design proved to be the winning combination for Bartley Christian Church, the measured results showed a tremendous improvement over the previous loudspeaker system and it delivers vastly greater intelligibility with an average of 0.76 STI achieved across the hall.
