Meyer Sound in Berkeley, Calif., announces that Church on the Rock in Lubbock, Texas has installed a MINA line array loudspeaker system in its new 950-seat auditorium. The church reports that MINA is helping break down separation between worship leaders and the congregation, bringing a greater sense of unity and participation to services.

In addition to two arrays comprised of nine MINA loudspeakers each, the system includes seven UPJunior-XP 48 V VariO loudspeakers as front fills, six 500-HP subwoofers flown in a cardioid configuration, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 616 processor for system drive and optimization. Lubbock Sight, Sound and Security handled system integration, with owner Alan Rich consulting on design and handling project management.

The system at Church on the Rock also incorporates a new Behringer X32 digital mixing console; 11 Behringer Powerplay 16 P16-M digital personal mixers, including six extended with Shure wireless IEMs; and six channels of Shure wireless microphone systems, including one beltpack equipped with a Countryman lavalier mic for the senior pastor.

“Compared to the system in our old sanctuary, the MINAs are much more intelligible,” says Michael Koontz, technical director for Church on the Rock. “You feel much more engaged with the singers and musicians, like you’re right there with them. It’s no longer a passive experience—you feel actively involved.”

Leslie Rich, the church’s worship leader for the past 12 years, has also noticed a significant improvement. “The sound is very clear and full,” she points out. “In our old facility, it felt like we were constantly working around problems. Now, our sound team tells me that it’s much easier to get the sound they want, which is critically important to translate what we do on the worship team out to the congregation.”

“We were able to outfit Church on the Rock with a reinforcement system we can honestly say is the best money can buy,” says Alan Rich. “The system brings to life every nuance and detail of the worship team, and we’ve received nothing but compliments from the church staff.”
