TechDataPS and Yeong Sound recently collaborated to equip the newest location of Joodasan Church in HwaSeong-Si, Republic of Korea, with a quality sound reinforcement system utilizing Harman Professional Solutions components that include JBL Professional loudspeakers, Crown power amplifiers and a Soundcraft mixing console.
Built in 2014, the chapel at Hwaseong-si in Gyeonggi-do province is the third facility constructed by Joodasan Church. With about 2,200 seats, including two-story balcony sections, the 1,500-square-meter worship space regularly hosts a wide variety of spiritual events, in addition to musical performances and youth Sunday school.
Representatives from the church state that their ultimate goal was to elevate and modernize their existing sound setup. Since the church hosts a wide array of events, worship services and performances, system flexibility was another requirement.
TechDataPS reports that after considering their client’s request, JBL VTX A8 line arrays were the choice for main loudspeakers. The company then partnered with Yeong Sound to install them in a way that complimented the church’s architecture. With the help of construction and systems engineers, the team identified the quantity and flying angles of the loudspeakers needed to maximize the system’s efficiency.
TechDataPS also deployed JBL VTX B18 series subwoofers for extra low-frequency impact and lightweight VRX932LA-1 line arrays to extend coverage. JBL VTX M20 and VRX 915M are both available as stage monitors. All loudspeakers are driven by Crown I-Tech 4X3500HD and Crown CDi 2|1200 amplifiers.
Finally, TechDataPS equipped the church with a Soundcraft Vi7000 digital mixing console offering 128 inputs, onboard DSP and a hands-on Vistonics touch interface with color-coded FaderGlow technology.
“The project at Joodasan Church required close collaboration in the fields of sound, construction and systems engineering,” concludes Amar Subash, VP & GM, HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. “We’d like to thank our partner TechDataPS for executing a solution with precision, and for setting up the first VTX A8 installation in a church in the Republic of Korea.”
