Cleaning up the sound at Gonkju with Amate
SOUTH KOREA: Gonkju Central Methodist Church in South Korea has upgraded its sound system with components from Spanish loudspeaker maker, Amate Audio. The self-powered main left/right Amate Excellence series arrays each consist of three X12CLA cabinets flown beneath an X18T subwoofer, 4m above the ground. The X12CLA systems each provide a 45-degrees vertical by 100-degrees horizontal dispersion pattern.
Four JK26 passive cabinets from the Amate Joker series have been installed for balcony under-fill/side-delay cabinets, powered by HD1200 amplifiers and managed via a DSP206 processor. Each JK26 cabinet houses a columnar array of four 6-inch carbon fibre cone woofers, along with a single 1.75-inch compression driver feeding an asymmetrical horn. All the components employ neodymium magnets.
Rounding out the system are Amate Key series KEY12A cabinets, used for stage monitoring. Each two-way KEY12A wedge features a 12-inch woofer and a 1-inch Kevlar tweeter, with a 70-degrees by 40-degrees dispersion pattern. Amplification is on-board, with 450W (LF) plus 150W (HF) of Class-D bi-amplification.
