Modern

Wide Nave, Medium Height Ceiling

Broad front chancel/podium space and a moderately wide and deep congregation area. Loudspeaker mounting is somewhat limited by a medium ceiling height.

In this example, we have used two matching arrays. Each loudspeaker cluster addresses one-half of the audio system and includes two horizontally oriented (landscape) cabinets with rotated horns. In each array, the upper loudspeaker is aimed to project to rear seats using narrow vertical dispersion angle (in this case 90° H x 40° V). The lower loudspeaker is aimed downward addressing closest seats with a wider vertical dispersion (in this case 120° H x 60° V). Refer to the Side View coverage lines (pink).
 
In some cases, particularly more narrow rooms, each array can be located farther “off-stage” for truer Left / Right “Stereo” coverage. Each array must address all seats to achieve the desired effect.
 
Note: Horns are rotated 90° from factory standard configuration to maintain the coverage pattern. Suggested model families: I SERIES (IP600, IP800, IC600) and V SERIES (V2-6, V2-26, V2-8, V2-28, V2-32, V2-35)
This system shows I SERIES subs positioned behind the main array to offer a tight bass response to the listeners. Coupled floor mounted subs are preferred in most situations for additional low frequency support, but in this case, distributed floor positioned subs would be too close.
For general monitoring purposes a compact loudspeaker mounted below each subwoofer aims toward the front platform.  Portable monitors (MX8, MX10) can be an option for individual stage performers.

Technical Considerations

Amplified Loudspeaker Controllers

Community recommends our series of Amplified Loudspeaker Controllers (ALC) for all Community loudspeaker applications, like those shown in this application guide. ALCs provide all of the signal routing, zone switching, DSP processing, protective limiting, remote monitoring, and amplification functions needed between a mixer and the loudspeakers in virtually any Community Professional Loudspeakers application. Standard Ethernet communication protocols allow for fast system design, system control, and remote system monitoring. Analog and Dante® inputs are included in each model, for quick and easy integration into any new or existing system. Community-authored loudspeaker presets include equalization, high pass filters, and multi-stage limiters tailored to each model, ensuring consistent sound quality and full loudspeaker protection in every application.

ALC Application Note

Total available power can be safely distributed asymmetrically across the outputs in any combination of low impedance and 70V/100V loads.  Power delivered from each output is individually managed; total shared power per ALC is monitored and limited independently by the power supply.

ALC-404D

4 inputs (Analog and/or Dante®)

4 channels of amplification and DSP processing

Each channel provides up to 400W of power into low impedance or 70V/100V loads, stable to 2Ω

In bridged mode, each pair of channels provides up to 800W into 8Ω, 4Ω, or 70V/100V loads

Total shared power not to exceed 1200W

Perfect for Small R SERIES, V SERIES, Compact I SERIES, W SERIES (W2), and ENT200 models, and zoned C SERIES & D SERIES applications

ALC-1604D

4 inputs (Analog and/or Dante®)

4 channels of amplification and DSP processing

Each channel provides up to 1600W of power into low impedance or 70V/100V loads, stable to 2Ω

In bridged mode, each pair of channels provides up to 3200W into 4Ω, or 70V/100V loads

Total shared power not to exceed 4800W

Perfect match for Larger R SERIES & W SERIES, I SERIES, IV6 and ENT-FR

ALC-3202D

2 inputs (Analog and/or Dante®)

2 channels of amplification and DSP processing

Each channel provides up to 3200W of power into low impedance or 70V/100V loads

In bridged mode, each pair of channels provides up to 6400W into 4Ω, or 70V/100V loads

Total shared power not to exceed 6400W

Perfect for R6-MAX, I SERIES Subwoofers and larger IV6 Arrays
