Virginia Church Installs PreSonus Sound Reinforcement Equipment

State Street United Methodist Church in Bristol, Virginia has installed PreSonus WorxAudio loudspeakers, a StudioLive Series III digital console and a StudioLive 32R Series III stage box/rack mixer for its congregation.

The PreSonus system was installed by JMP Productions of Bristol, VA, a design/build/consulting company serving several Southeastern states.

The primary loudspeaker system is a single WorxAudio X2i-P all-in-one compact line array, which is flown over the front center of the pulpit. The X2i-P is a two-way, high efficiency, line array loudspeaker designed for the reproduction of speech and music.

The system incorporates two medium format one-inch exit compression drivers coupled to a stabilized proprietary FlatWave former paired with four eight-inch cone transducers. The X2i-P has a 160-degree horizontal by 30-degree vertical coverage pattern.

Low frequency support is achieved via a single WorxAudio TL118SST-P active subwoofer. The TL118ST-P is an extreme high SPL sub bass loudspeaker system that utilizes a direct radiating 18-inch, 2,000 watt cone driver in a tuned enclosure.

At FOH, a PreSonus StudioLive 32 40-input digital console while a StudioLive 32R rack mixer is positioned at the stage and is configured for use as a stage box. The console has onboard recording capability.

The new system replaces an older system with several dead spots. It took about one hour of training for the church’s staff.
