Just 15 Km far from Scotland of India i.e., Shillong, newly built Church, Mylliem Presbyterian Church recently got a powerful Audio System installed by Shillong based System Integrator Aidon Electronics.
Church with the seating capacity of nearly 700plus, is being used for Mass Prayers and Cultural programmes. The church management wanted an intelligent audio system that could enhance the sermons and readings as well as music of the in-house Band for the regular followers.
The management of the Church reached out to Aidon Electronics to craft versatile audio system to deliver real-time live experience to its followers. Aidon Electronics in turn approached Delhi based Sun Infonet, to supply state-of-the-art audio gear.
Don, Managing Director, Aidon Electronics, visited the church before installations and faced technical challenges concerning the church’s architectural design. The church constructed was not audio-friendly and had reverberation issues, and the ceiling height was 20 feet, with UPVC board installed. After many visits and research and brainstorming sessions, Don came up with a combination of audio gears that would complement the infrastructure of the building while also fulfilling its purpose.
For the FOH, he deployed four Quest HPI110 Compact Hi-Definition Loudspeaker and two Quest QM600 ASi Sub-Woofer amplified by one QA3004. The Gallery and Under Gallery with four MX801 Ceiling Mountable Speakers as fill-in amplified by one QA1004 (Power Amplifier). On the sides of the platform, he installed two MX801.
The Main Podium with one Shure MX412, and the other smaller podium with two Shure CVG12 – 12” Gooseneck Microphones. Whereas, for the Table one Shure – CVG18/D – 18” Gooseneck Microphone. For mixing the band and managing the entire installed sound system one Allen & Heath QU 24.
According to Don “I have chosen the Quest brand and the HPI110 mainly because of the high reverberant issue of the venue and the long throw that the Quest speaker gives. With 130SPL on each speaker, the audio output would be sufficient enough to give a balance sound to fill in a room of 700 people for both speech and live music”.
Aidon Electronics completed the installation in the stipulated time frame of 5 days which was also appreciated by the management of the Church. Since this is the first hanging system in the entire surrounding area, so management was also satisfied and happy with the work done and system provided by the System Integrator.
