Oakmont Baptist Church - Greenville, NC
The sanctuary at Oakmont Baptist Church measures 28,000 square feet and has fixed seating for 900 1,000 worshippers. The traditional service uses a good sized choir while the contemporary service that follows uses a praise vocal team and band. With that said, it was essential for the new system to deliver a high level of speech intelligibility and big, natural sounding music reproduction.
Williams proceeded to install a center cluster loudspeaker system consisting of eight WorxAudio X1i enclosures. Mounted at the rear of the center loudspeaker cluster, Williams installed another X1i loudspeaker. This loudspeaker is angled down at the area where the choir is located and serves as the sole monitor system. Low frequency reproduction is handled by a pair of WorxAudio UltraWave 118S-P powered subwoofers.
“I’ve received numerous compliments from church management. I attended a service and had numerous people approach me and shake my hand because the sound was so clear and natural. Several people told me this was the first time they could understand the pastor and hear the lyrics clearly. This project has already led to new business—it doesn’t get better than that.”
