Harmon AV, an events production and sound integration company based in Fort Myers Florida, has seen a steady increase of integration business over the past few months. With COVID restrictions lifted statewide, Bobby Harmon, co-owner and integrator at Harmon AV, has seen a big push with clients wanting to improve sound quality, become more digitally capable, and stream video online. One notable installation was a complete system upgrade at Burnt Store Presbyterian Church [BSP] in Punta Gorda which features an RCF HDL active line array system.

When the conversation started about upgrading BSP’s audio it was apparent that the 20-year-old system was in dire need of an upgrade. “The challenge for us was to find a PA that was properly voiced and was going to cover the room for varying types of services,” said Harmon. “Initially when we discussed upgrading the system, one thing that came up was their live concert series. The church holds several live concerts [with full bands] throughout the year, and usually hire outside companies to provide additional sound.”

Other acoustic challenges throughout the church included echo and bounce-back which were addressed by Harmon AV. “One issue we had to address was the reverberance of the room, which they liked for the traditional services, so they didn’t want to change that,” continued Harmon. “We talked about room acoustics and treating it, but the music minister didn’t want to change the natural acoustics of the room. Another issue brought up by one of the pastors, was the ‘echo in a cave’ sound of being when speaking on the stage, which we determined was bounce-back from the backwall. We knew we could solve these issues with a line array system and few fills throughout the room,” said Harmon

Podolsk (Moscow Region, Russia) - The Palace of Culture "October" is an 850 seat theatre with two levels, established in 1966. The venue hosts many types of events from dance to concerts and local events. RCF Russian distributor, ARIS, provided a new HDL 28-A line array with SUB 9004-AS for a new and improved sound, recently allowed to open to the 240 seat balcony to the public, previously closed for acoustical issues.

Installed more than ten years ago, the previous sound system was unable to cover the rather spacious balcony properly. Therefore, tickets to the balcony during box office concerts were not sold, avoiding complaints from disappointed patrons. When the budget was approved for a new sound reinforcement system, a mandatory requirement from management of the House of Culture was to provide a high-quality sound experience to all sections of the venue including the balcony and parterre.

ARIS suggested hanging two RCF active line array clusters of six elements each. The two upper elements in the cluster exclusively targeting the balcony, and the four lower elements pointing the parterre. Three SUB 9004-A active 18-inch subwoofers were configured in L / R stacks providing sound at lower frequencies. All control and monitoring of the system is carried out from the sound engineer's booth using RDNet protocol.

With over 50 years of ministry and community service, Tabernacle Church, located just outside Nashville, in Clarksville Tennessee, decided in 2017 that to keep up with their tremendous growth, they would undergo a monumental change with a grand new construction project, to reemerge as Mosaic Church—adding 65,000 square feet to their campus, including a 1,500 seat performance space.

When audio and integration firm, Holly Media was asked to oversee the expansion of the performance space, owner Fred Holly, with over 30 years of pro audio experience, led the design effort. “With new dynamics and changing needs, the scope of the ministry has changed—it’s become a new work,” said Holly. “Tabernacle seemed old fashioned. The name didn’t match the demographic of our church because it’s very diverse—and it’s thriving. The new Mosaic Church wanted to reflect that.”

The original structure was a smaller sanctuary [about 200 seats] and was insufficient space for many years. The church adapted for larger congregations by expanding Sunday services to four per day. Recently through COVID, the church was mobile, moving its worship service to a local high school, setting up and tearing down in the parking lot each week.

Aside from general construction, Holly focused mainly on the performance space, and the subsequent procurement of an audio system and its installation. “Early on with my ideas for the shape of the room, I didn’t want to encounter any problems later on. I wanted the diffusion to be completely natural — with the splay of the walls and installing surface treatment.

Not only does Holly Media tackle the challenges between space design and installing sound systems, Holly pulled in one of his trusted resources for advanced surface techniques and sound dampening.

“Usually when clients show me plans for a church, it’s obvious architects know nothing about acoustics,” said Jay Perdue, owner and designer at Perdue Acoustics, and the lead instructor of architectural acoustics at InfoComm University. “They’re more focused on what it’s going to look like versus what it’s going to sound like.”

Upon first glance, Perdue knew something about this new space was very unique. “When I first saw the room design, I thought Fred really did his homework,’ said Perdue. “The shape of the room was very nice with no corners to deal with. I checked all the parallelisms and found slap back on the back wall was a non-issue. I not only check a room for echo and reverberation, I conduct intelligibility testing as well. After a 13-point check throughout the space, it has the flattest response I’ve ever seen.”

Holly has worked with most major audio brands and was looking for a sound system to deliver. “Being in this business for as long as I have, I’ve come from the old school thinking that having a solid, heavy box would also give solid frequency response — or a chance at it,” said Holly. “At first I thought to spec a JBL V 20 rig, but in the spirit of transformation, I wanted to find something new.”

When Holly was referred to RCF and was introduced to Jim Reed [RCF product specialist and system designer] his curiosity was piqued. “When we spoke, Jim said he was willing to demo an RCF TT rig personally, he had my attention.” noted Holly. “I sent him the final room schematic and he returned an EASE drawing, and I was like, ‘when can you come’? [laughs] I was very excited about the possibilities.”

Reed put together a complete system which included: 16 [2x8] TTL 55-A active line array modules, four companion TTS 56-AS active subwoofers, two TT 25-CXA active floor monitors, and four TT 20-CXA active monitors for the stage. For added coverage, Reed also added nine HDL 26-A active line arrays for center and front fills for added coverage. At the helm is an Allen & Health dLive s7000 mixing console.

“Pulling everything out of the box, I was pleasantly surprised at the weight of it [TTL 55-A module]. The stuff is hardcore, man [laughs]. I’m an old military guy, so I know that if it’s heavy, it must be expensive.”

Once all the products were out of their boxes and flown, Holly was also surprised at the time it took to test the sound system.

El estadio de San Marino es un instalación deportiva de referencia para el microestado homónimo que se eleva sobre el monte Titano, al centro de Italia. Nace en el 1969, conocido como Estadio de Serravalle. En tiempos recientes se realizó una obra de modernización que ha permitido la construcción de una torre de servicios con enfermería, gimnasio, fisioterapia, una sala grande de prensa y estudios de televisión, una gran pared de LED y un nuevo sistema de audio renovado por RCF.

Ubicado a unos cientos metros de la frontera con Italia, es uno de los primeros estadios del mundo en adoptar un campo mixto sintético / natural; tiene una capacidad total de casi 5000 asientos y en 2019 fue la sede de los partidos del Campeonato de Europa Sub 21. Aquí tambien se han realizado las ceremonias inaugurales de los Juegos de los Pequeños Estados de Europa en 1985, 2001 y 2017 y las ediciones de Rally Legend desde 2002. La instalación deportiva está ratificada como categoría 3 de la UEFA y alberga los partidos de las selecciones nacionales de la República de San Marino, las finales del Campeonato de San Marino y la Copa Titano, así como los desafíos de los clubes que participan en las preliminares de la Champions y la Europa League.

“Después de haber invertido en el gran muro de LED, confiábamos en que un sistema de audio de alta calidad aumentaría la participación de la audiencia durante los partidos y eventos”, comenta Elya Bonifazi del Departamento de Organización de la Federación de Fútbol de San Marino. La Federación de Fútbol de San Marino se ocupa de todas las inversiones deportivas en el estadio, con instalaciones y tecnologías que serán de libre acceso para todas las demás actividades nacionales. “Cuando la Federación de Fútbol decidió renovar el sistema de audio, seguí todas las ofertas de las mejores marcas. Luego escuché hablar de los sistemas RCF en algunos estadios y no tuve dudas, es el sistema más adecuado para nuestra estructura. Una vez realizado un procedimiento de licitación con las empresas instaladoras, pudimos tener uno de los mejores sistemas audio del mundo y estamos seguros que nuestro público también apreciará su calidad ”

Dado el uso previsto y la altura del techo de las tribunas, se decidió utilizar un sistema distribuido compuesto por ocho (8) altavoces coaxiales P 3115T colgados bajo el techo y seis (6) altavoces coaxiales P 3115T para la parte cubierta de la Tribuna Sur y dos (2) altavoces coaxial P 6215 para la parte descubierta. Además de estos, hay dos (2) P 6215 que se utilizarán para reforzar el sonido del campo. Para completar el sistema, se instalaron dos (2) subwoofers HS 2200 en la tribuna para tener un empuje adecuado en todo el sonido.

El P3115-T y el P6215 son altavoces de dos vías coaxiales resistentes al clima. Tiene una excelente cobertura debida a su bocina de directividad constante y ofrece un poder y la eficiencia adecuadas para una variedad de instalaciones con usos en interiores y exteriores.

Sberbank is the largest bank in Russia and a leading international financial institution. It is Russia’s most valuable brand and one of the top 25 brands in the world. Sberbank has 11 regional banks that are responsible for the operations of more than 14,000 branches in 83 of Russia’s regions. RCF’s Russian distributor ARIS and Polymedia equipped the central office’s entrance zone with a sound system for background broadcasting and vocal announcements.

“The main goal was to equip the entrance zone of the central office with a sound system for background music and vocal announcements and a mobile system for events. Glass walls and the abundance of reflective surfaces are the real acoustic challenge of this project,” says Alexandr Shamray, Sales Director of Aris. “We decided to implement a steerable vertical array RCF VSA 850 MKII and the point source wall speakers RCF MQ 30P-W.”

The installation extends to more than 750 square meters covering the waiting area, self-service area, thematic exhibitions, meeting and customer service areas, access control zone, and the balcony.

“The RCF VSA 850 II column is a vertical controlled array with eight amplifiers and eight 3.5 inches speakers,” says Dmitry Semenov, Lead Project Manager of Polymedia “VSA 850 II provides accurate sound directivity to the listening area. Using RCF’s RDNet software, you can control the radiation pattern by controlling the width and inclination of the sound beam, which allows you to accurately articulate our audio sources .”

The miniature two-way coaxial sound projector RCF MQ 30P is ideal for complex architectural solutions,” continues Shamray “The loudspeaker features high intelligibility and a wide frequency range to ensure background music is smooth. The integrated support makes it easy to mount the speaker to a wall or ceiling and orient it in any direction. It’s compact and looks great, perfect for our application.”

As a mobile speaker system, the RCF D-LINE line array series was proposed. “The HDL 30-A with HDL 38-AS became the absolute right decision for Polymedia. “The HDL-30 has the necessary sound pressure level and sufficient headroom for these rooms and RDNet control helps to quickly achieve a good result”. states Semenov.
