St Andrews Lutheran equipped with L-Acoustics

Published: WORSHIP

WORLD: Minnesota-based Audio Video Electronics (AVE) recently installed an L-Acoustics Kiva loudspeaker system at St Andrews Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi.

‘St Andrews has a beautiful 1,200-seat sanctuary with a nearly 5s reverb time, so going into this project we knew that speech intelligibility was one of our primary issues of concern,’ admitted AVE vice president Kevin Crow. ‘Furthermore, with an 80-member choir, chamber group and huge pipe organ, St Andrews’ services feature quite an emphasis on music, and they wanted it to feel more “present” in the sanctuary seating areas.’

As a solution, AVE specified an L-Acoustics line source system featuring left and right arrays each comprised of nine Kiva enclosures flown adjacent to three Kilo low-frequency extension cabinets. Two SB18i subs are flown behind each Kiva array, and all systems are powered and processed by a total of four LA8 amplified controllers.

‘With the previous loudspeaker system, the sound always felt rather distant out in the pews,’ Mr Crow explained. ‘Not anymore. The Kiva/Kilo arrays immerse the congregation in audio that is both wonderfully full and naturally clear. It’s an amazing setup that is perfectly matched for this client, and everyone is extremely pleased with the results.’
