Heartfelt sound reinforcement
ZIMBABWE: Heartfelt International Ministries’ International Overflow Center recently staged The Hallelujah Night, a live gospel concert. The 4,000-seat auditorium was filled to capacity for the event, which featured a performance from renowned South African choir Joyous Celebration.
Divine Concert Sound was hired to deliver the stage, sound and lighting setup for the event and subcontracted Tropical Sound & Music Distributors to handle the sound reinforcement due to its reputation in the local sound solution market. Tropical Sound & Music deployed a main PA solution comprising TW Audio systems.
‘We have a successful record with TW Audio at a lot of events and as a result, it’s always our first choice,’ explains Pacival Percy Mukuchura of Tropical Sound & Music, who served as systems technician and FOH mixing engineer for local bands during The Hallelujah Night.
The setup comprised seven TW Audio T24N loudspeakers, deployed three per side with one as a centre-fill. These were accompanied by eight Vera S33 subwoofers and a pair of BSX subwoofer extenders. ‘They were all powered by Powersoft amplifiers,’ Mr Mukuchura confirms.
A Yamaha LS9 and M7 were used at FOH and the same mixing setup was used for monitors. ‘You could clearly hear every instrument from drums, keyboards, the brass section, guitars and the vocals with amazing loudness all across the venue and the bass was tight,’ recalls Mr Mukuchura. ‘Many thanks to the hard working team that put all this work together and all the bands that performed.’
