Iconyx installed into Knollwood Baptist Church

WORLD: Renkus-Heinz Iconyx digitally steered column array loudspeakers were recently installed into the Knollwood Baptist Church’s 1,000-seat sanctuary.

The sanctuary's modernistic design encompasses peaked ceilings, abundant glass, and polished surfaces, meaning that it was difficult to achieve intelligibility and even coverage throughout the hall.

‘It's a beautiful space, but very challenging acoustically, and the original sound system just couldn't provide adequate coverage,’ said Dan Wood, president of North Carolina-based Church Interiors Audio Video (CIAv).

‘The chancel platform extends far into the room, and there was no possibility to hang an array or cluster without impacting line of sight,’ he added. ‘Our only viable option was to locate the speakers behind all the open microphones – there was simply no other place to put them.’

CIAv selected Renkus-Heinz Iconyx digitally steered column array loudspeakers for the HOW, placing a single IC24-R-II on either side of the chancel platform.

‘The Iconyx allowed us to create multiple sound beams and steer them to the seats on the floor and balcony levels while steering them away from the walls and windows and other reflective surfaces,’ said Mr Wood. ‘It also enabled us to provide focused coverage to the mix position up in the balcony. With just two Iconyx columns, we've got consistent coverage and intelligibility everywhere in the room.’
