AVKRAFT Honoured to Install New Sound System at Sacred Heart Church, Thiruvampady

AVkraft install New Sound System at Sacred Heart Church, Thiruvampady

Sacred Heart Forane Church is a Syro-Malabar Roman Catholic church situated in Thiruvambady, Thamarassery - Southwest India. The church was established in the year 1944 and is designed with gothic style architecture and caters to around 750 people on average. After more than six decades, the church was recently subjected to an altar renovation that offers a better experience for the congregation as well as the installation of a new audio system.

AVkraft a North Kerala (India) based AVL Technical consultant and System integrator were hired for the project. The company has been designing and building audiovisual systems for auditorium, schools, mosques, churches and many other related businesses all around North Kerala.

QSC Active Speakers installed in the Chapel

Parish Priest Fr. Jose Oliakkatil approached AVkraft with a project brief that specified the need for a solution that would complement sermons to be heard throughout the sanctuary, and especially for products capable of delivering clear, understandable speech no matter where attendees chose to sit.

“The biggest challenge for us was, overcoming the problems posed by two lines of pillars which are a huge obstruction in reaching a steady sound. To provide consistent coverage to all in the congregation, we designed the solution and divided the chapel into 8 specific zones, two as FOH and three on the left and on the right, with a speaker dedicated to each zone,” said Mathew George, Technical Consultant -AVkraft. Each of the 8 zones has a QSC CP12 and QSC K12.2 active speakers promising superior experience. “QSC CP12 and QSC K12.2 were the clear choices because it delivers remarkable audio performance, providing outstanding fidelity and high-energy output for worshippers,” he added further.

In addition to the QSC K12.2 and QSC CP12, one QSC CP8 was angled inwards and used as an onstage monitor for the Priests on altar. The audio system also included the Church’s repurposed Yamaha MG24XU digital mixer along with AKGD5s, and Sennheiser E845 microphones.

The enhanced experience achieved by the audio solution implemented at the Sacred Heart Forane Church was well appreciated and a couple of months after the installation work AVkraft have now been asked to design and supply a PA system for St Joseph’s Church, Pullorampara.

Concluding the new experience Fr. Jose Oliakkatil says, “Our new Sound System is fantastic. Every word could be heard clearly, even from the very edge by the west door as well!”
