    White Train Entertainment Uplifts Crossroads Community Church with QSC Line Array

After performing a thorough analysis of Crossroads’ new home, events specialists White Train Entertainment knew that a QSC active line array would be the perfect fit. They flew four KLA12 cabinets on either side of the stage, tucked a pair of KS212C active cardioid subwoofers underneath, placed two K8.2 active loudspeakers onstage as monitors, and hid two more as front fills. “The capacity is just under 200 people, so it was a big jump for Crossroads to move to a professionally installed line array as opposed to a couple of mobile loudspeakers,” says…
