Meyer Sound MINA Amplifies Enthusiasm at Yuong-Sang Presbyterian Church

Publish date:

The sermons and songs may be in Korean, but the level of passion expressed in worship at Yuong-Sang Presbyterian Church easily matches that of any other dedicated church service in America. The excitement level recently kicked up a notch when Yuong-Sang, located in the Philadelphia suburb of Horsham, invested in a new sound system anchored by Meyer SoundMINA™ line array loudspeakers.

“MINA is a perfect fit for Yuong-Sang in both size and performance,” says Dave Brotman, owner of Coatesville, Pa.–based systems integrator DBS Audio Systems, Inc. “Yuong-Sang has a very active music program, with services including a band, orchestra, and 100-voice choir. MINA delivers the power and the clarity the church needs, but in a compact box that blends with the look of their remodeled sanctuary.”

The custom-painted Meyer Sound system includes left and right arrays, comprised of six MINA loudspeakers flown under a 500-HP subwoofer on each side. Five UPJ-1P VariO™ loudspeakers are spaced along the rear of the sanctuary as balcony delays, and six MM-4XP self-powered loudspeakers are recessed in the stage steps to provide front fill and lower the perceived audio image.

“The church already had expressed a preference for a Meyer solution based on the senior pastor’s experience at other churches,” Brotman explains. “They were looking at a M’elodie® [line array loudspeaker] system, but by using MAPP Online Pro [acoustical prediction program], I showed them that the more compact MINA would give them all the performance and coverage they needed—and save them a substantial amount of money.”

The Meyer Sound loudspeaker system installed at Yuong-Sang is self-powered, therefore requiring only two additional items to complete the setup: a Galileo® loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 616 processor and a 48V, DC MPS-488HP power supply for the MM-4XP loudspeakers. A new Allen & Heath iLive digital console has also been installed.

As part of the church’s complete renovation, Applied Video Technology, Inc. (AVT) in Malvern, Pa. supplied new video systems, including Digital Projection projectors, NEC monitors, Panasonic cameras, a Sony HD production switcher, and Crestron controls.

One of the largest Korean-language churches in the Northeast, Yuong-Sang Presbyterian draws its congregation from Korean-American communities throughout the greater Philadelphia area.
