Binh Thuan Roman Catholic Church

A sound system solution comprising Electro-Voice loudspeakers and microphones and Dynacord amplifiers has enhanced audio intelligibility for the congregation at Binh Thuan Roman Catholic Church in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The solution was installed by Duy Hoa Phat Corp and was specified to overcome the reverberance inside the church. The church decided it was time for a new audio solution that could deliver high-quality sound across the whole chancel with absolutely no delay or echo – a challenge, since the reverberation time there is more than four seconds. In addition to this, the loudspeakers needed to blend into the church’s bright interior design to be visually unobtrusive.

The answer was found in white versions of models from the Electro-Voice EVC family of compact loudspeakers for fixed installation. A pair of EVC-1122-VI Vari-Intense 12” two-way loudspeakers address the main congregational seating area, supported by seven EVC-1082 8” two-way loudspeakers. The EVC-1122-VI has a unique asymmetrical horn design which allows uniform coverage of rectangular spaces, ensuring sermons can be heard clearly by every member of the congregation during services. In addition to the EVC models, a pair of EVID S4.2TB and a further two Bosch LB2-UC30-L1 compact installation cabinets complete the solution. Power for the audio system is provided by five Dynacord L1300FD 2x 650 W DSP amplifiers.
