The Incheon 2nd Presbyterian Church has spent the last five years engaged in a programme of reconstruction and renewal. Built in the 1940s, the church building was showing its age and its leaders took decisive action, opting to destroy the old house and design a modern replacement. Over the course of 2008, the construction of the new 1300-capacity church was completed.
From the world’s best sound reinforcement brands, NEXO was chosen as the supplier of the loudspeaker cabinets and amplifiers. A Works Corporation was named as the official installer, specifying a DiGiCo SD8 at front of house and NEXO’s tangent-array GEO D10 cabinets for the main PA.
There are 8x high-output D10 array modules in each of the side hangs, which are flown together with 2x CD18 subs a side. To handle the blind spots at the extreme left and right of the auditorium, 2x NEXO PS8 compact cabinets have been wall-mounted.
Stage sound requirements have been met by a sizeable number of NEXO’s newly-upgraded PS10 R2 monitors. Additionally, a small PS15 R2 system was supplied for an adjacent hall in the Church building.
James Lee of A Works Corporation reports that there was something just a little bit different about the Incheon project. « The 2nd Presbyterian Church has a senior elder, Mr Lee, who is very knowledgeable about acoustics and sound system design. After our presentation, he asked us a lot of questions about the NEXO technology and about digital networks. The very next day, he called us back into the church and said bring a contract document.’ He gave us some very wonderful compliments after hearing the GEO D system on the first commemoration service in the church. »
