MC2Solutions Provides Outstanding Sound Quality for  Memphis Church with Community IV6

Integration specialist MC2Solutions has completed the design and installation of a powerful new Community loudspeaker sound system for the World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church in Memphis, Tennessee. The church’s impressive main sanctuary can seat a congregation of up to 4,000 and is built in the round. 

Carl Woodard II, the owner and designer of MC2Solutions, explained, “The system was required to provide very high quality speech and full-range music, with intelligibility being key.  With such a large space, more akin to a theater than a traditional church, we designed a system based on wide dispersion column line arrays with under-balcony fill, to ensure absolute coverage with no dead spots.”

Mr. Woodard continued, “I chose Community based on previous experience and the new IV6 modular vertical array was the ideal solution. I prefer passive loudspeakers for their cost-effective combination of acoustic purity and long-term system reliability. The multiple IV6 configurations available, with splay options and built-in passive acoustic optimization settings, allowed me to design the arrays to provide excellent SPL and frequency response consistency with seamless coverage.”

Flown with IV6 GlidePoint™ array frames, the system has three arrays, each comprising seven IV6-1122 wide-dispersion 12-inch two-way array elements. Four IV6-118S 18-inch subwoofers extend the low frequency and add impressive bass impact. A combination of Community single and dual 8-inch two-way IC6-1082 and IC6-2082 loudspeakers provide front and under-balcony fill, ensuring even coverage of all seating with consistent voicing.

Controlled by an Allen & Heath digital mixer with personal monitoring, the system uses Lab Gruppen amplification and a Lake LM26 provides DSP. Shure ULX wireless microphones were chosen to ensure vocal quality with flexibility.

Mr. Woodard concluded, “The Pastor wanted no dead spots in the congregation seating and is extremely impressed with the results. The church had an old component sound system prior to this install and the full sound and intelligibility, even at low SPL, is a dramatic improvement to the listening experience in the room. The loudspeakers are pleasing to the eye as well as the ears. I was initially concerned the system would now be visible, but they are pleased with the appearance and how well it complements the interior aesthetics.”
