Renkus-Heinz helps renew Reno church

Published: WORSHIP

WORLD: Two Iconyx IC Live digitally steered line array systems from Renkus-Heinz have recently been installed into the 500-seat Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Reno.

‘The architect who designed the space has done a number of traditional sanctuaries and really did a fantastic job,’ said Scott Schmidt of Reno-based JC Productions. ‘Most of the walls are not parallel, and there's a sloped ceiling that's about 18m at its highest point. The wall behind the choir is angled about five-degrees, which really helps with reflectivity.’

Mr Schmidt opted for a pair of IC Live ICL-FR columns mounted on either side of the proscenium. Meanwhile low-frequency reinforcement is covered by an IC215S-FR subwoofer under the stage lip. ‘We needed a very versatile system and the IC Live fit the bill,’ he explained. ‘Spoken word intelligibility is always the priority, but the system had to provide the full-range musicality needed for a live band as well.
  
‘The band use all amplified instruments running through the PA, and they all use in-ear monitors, so that does help keep the sound under control somewhat,’ he continued. ‘They use electronic drums and there are no amplifiers onstage. But it's still a pretty live space and they needed a sound system that could steer the acoustical energy away from the walls and into the seating area.’

Mr Schmidt concluded: ‘I've done a number of projects using Renkus-Heinz speakers over the past 10 years and have always been happy with the results. I used the Iconyx on a recent job – a corporate training room  – and felt it would be a good solution for a situation like this where we couldn't use any acoustical treatment. And it was definitely a good choice – the sound in here is terrific,’ he enthused.
