    QSC Spreads The Word At Shore Church, New Zealand

    Albany, Auckland, New Zealand (March 19, 2013) - Every Sunday the Shore Community Church congregates in the Albany Junior High School’s sports hall. This requires them to set up and pack down their own audio equipment before and after each service. In the past they had used an ageing, very large and heavy audio system. The challenge assigned to local installer Halogen Audio was to find a system that met the church’s high audio expectations whilst also meeting their requirements for portability and ease of set up. They tried out various options, but were only satisfied when Halogen Audio supplied a QSC KLA Active Line Array System, consisting of four KLA12 elements and two KW181 subwoofers. The church required an audio system that was suitable for both speech and the church band. It needed to provide high quality, even sound coverage across the large hall space, and…
