Comprehensive HK Audio installation for South Korea’s Nam Seoul Grace church

South Korea’s Nam Seoul Grace church has made a major upgrade to its sound system with the installation of a comprehensive HK Audio setup based around COHEDRA, CONTOUR, VORTIS and ELEMENTS Install products.  

The 1,800 capacity building – which measures 32 meters wide, 32 meters long and 14 meters high – is used as a gymnasium and event hall during the week, and as a church at weekends.  

Because of the venue’s size and the varied events that take place in it, the owners had been searching for an audio upgrade for some time. The previous sound system could not sufficiently reach the church’s upper balcony level, and long delay times meant unclear speech reproduction was common.  

After an HK Audio demonstration from Sama ProSound (HK Audio’s official distribution partner in South Korea) during a Sunday worship service, however, the solution became clear and a new system was planned.  

The installation is composed of COHEDRA and CONTOUR as the main front PA, with VORTIS covering that challenging upper balcony space and ELEMENTS filling in around the sides of the venue.
