Installation at Chapel of Chung Chi College reviewed by ProAudio-Central

CHINA: Tom Lee Engineering was recently called upon to provide a sound reinforcement solution for the Chapel of Chung Chi College at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The client called for an acoustic system upgrade to better accommodate the chapel’s various events.

The chapel features a small stage with two podiums and a projector screen, and seating is evenly distributed in front of the stage and balcony to accommodate hundreds of people. Other than prayer congregations, sermons and praise events, wedding ceremonies are often held at the chapel.

Taking the existing sound reinforcement system away, Tom Lee Engineering provided the new combination of speakers, specifically targeted towards rooms suffering from long reverberation times and poor speech intelligibility.

The main sound reinforcement system now comprises four Duran Audio Axys Intellivox DSX180 speakers in a left/right configuration, directing sound energy to the main hall and balcony seats. These are complemented by two floor-mounted B215-Diff hyper cardioids subwoofers at either side of the stage.

Seven Axys Flex U-12 active loudspeakers provide the side-fill sound, and are positioned along the rows of seats. Meanwhile, two Work NEO6A white self-powered two-way loudspeakers are used as stage monitors, with live sound control coming from a Yamaha LS9 32-channel digital mixing console.

Aside from the acoustic upgrade, lighting coverage comes courtesy of four Profile spotlights and eight Fresnel spotlights, which are mixed on a DMX dimming console and powered by Lite-Puter dimmer pack.
