dB Audio and Video, along with Marietta, Ga.-based architect CDH Partners, joined forces to design a multi-purpose building and sound system for Korean United Methodist Church in Duluth, Ga.

For the 900-seat facility’s audio system, dB Audio president Mike Hedden chose the SPL-triktrap speakers from Sound Physics Labs.

"In a big, live, multi-purpose room like this one, there's a big challenge in maintaining pattern control and getting as low a frequency as possible on the seats without exciting the walls and ceilings,” Hedden says. “You can't put stadium-sized horns in there. You need something smaller, while still maintaining the necessary pattern control.

"With the triks' four 8-inch direct radiating low-frequency drivers, four 5-inch mid-range drivers, and a one-inch high frequency driver, and the contribution of the two SPL-runts, we were able to put the sound right on the audience, maintaining intelligibility down to a low frequency."

Two clustered triktraps were suspended from the ceiling 30 feet over the middle of the platform. To that cluster's left and right, dB Audio personnel installed SPL-Runt speakers as lateral fills that were localized back to the center with the help of a Shure P4800 signal processor.

The front of the stage features two BASS 118 subwoofers from Belisle Acoustics. In addition, one 2-way passive, full-range loudspeaker was employed, as were four Yamaha floor monitors. Other key equipment included two Crown CTS2000 and two CTS3000 amplifiers, a Yamaha O1V 96-CA digital mixing console, a Yamaha AD 824 mic preamp and a selection of Sennheiser microphones.
