The first Lake Contour (from Lake Technology) installation in a house of worship was recently completed at the First Presbyterian Church of Colorado Springs in Colorado. Clair Brothers Systems integrated the Lake Contour digital speaker controller into its new main sound reinforcement system. Clair Bros.' Dean Wiltsie was the installation project supervisor.

"This is the first church installation where we've used the Lake Contour and the CAT-2s," said Gene Pelland, VP and director of marketing at Clair Brothers Systems. "Overall, after hearing back after the Good Friday/Easter Sunday services from the business manager at the church, Ed Ward, and the facilities manager, Ken Hayward, they were very happy.

"We used the Lake Contour to drive the left and right Clair Curved Live Array system," continued Pelland. "We're using three CAT-2 loudspeaker elements per side, with a CS-18 subwoofer on top of the cluster." Under-balcony Clair Bros. UB-2003 speaker feeds are driven by a BSS Soundweb. Clair Bros. also supplied six stage monitor wedges.

According to Bruce Jackson, senior VP of research for Lake Technology, "The Lake-designed Clair iO DSP speaker controller, resulting from the collaboration between Clair Brothers and Lake Technology, has revolutionized the way that the performance of touring concert sound systems is optimized. The new Lake Contour builds on that technology to bring those same unique sound-reshaping capabilities to installed sound systems of any size and in any venue."
