25 Nov 2018: Founded in 1849 in the historical city of Malacca, Malaysia, the Gothic Revival architected sanctuary of the Church of St. Francis Xavier has benefited from improved speech intelligibility, enhanced worship experience, and expanded multimedia options with the recent installation of GECKO® sound system anchored by the REVELATION SR 606R 6.5” loudspeakers equipped with the revolutionary C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® technology. The system was personally designed by Daniel Foo, founder of GECKO MUSIC GROUP, to adapt to the sanctuary's existing high RT60 acoustics without the aid of any form of acoustic treatment.

A total of ten units of REVELATION SR 606R loudspeakers were precisely installed based on detailed calculation to compensate the high reverberation time (RT) in the sanctuary via the advanced C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® WaveGuide and C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile technology, while a pair of REVELATION SR 606R loudspeakers were further installed for outdoor sound application, especially during Feast Day celebration.

“We have noticed a huge leap of improvement in sound reproduction and intelligibility throughout the church. The sound clarity is superb. The sound coverage is amazing – the sound is near equal-volume and with superb clarity everywhere in the sanctuary, even behind the altar,” says Mr. D. Joseph Davedas, who is principally responsible for the church AV operations. “The priests are very pleased with the response of the congregation to the improved speech clarity. Choir's parts and music could be heard in detail, and they sounded natural and balance. The musicians, choir members, and parishioners are all satisfied with this new audio experience.”
