19 Sep 2015: Located in Kuching, Sarawak, with a seating capacity of 300 pax, Sungai Maong Methodist Church 蒙恩堂 has recently opted for GECKO® C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile sound system for their sanctuary's sound system upgrade. The decision was made after having gone through a series of selection and testing of systems of different makes, a necessary upgrade to resolve their long-time intelligibility and coverage issues among others.

For a very long time, the rectangular-shaped-high-ceiling sanctuary was slapped with issues such as muffled sound for the congregation and on the stage, unresolved bad howling issues from the microphones and loudspeakers. Musicians, worship leaders, and vocalists were having difficulty hearing themselves clearly. Over the years, numerous loudspeakers were added in the sanctuary with the hope to resolve these issues in the main sanctuary but to no avail.

Mr. Morgan Woan of GECKO® Borneo was engaged to carry out a full technical assessment and to propose solutions.

The simplest yet most effective setup and for the upgrade consists of:

  • 2 units of GECKO® REVELATION SR 615RF 15” 2-way C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile loudspeakers
  • 1 unit of GECKO® GENESIS AG 700H 3-tier C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile Class-H power amplifier
  • 1 lot of GECKO® TRUTH T2 audiophile-grade speaker cables
  • 1 lot of GECKO® OLYMPIAN series audiophile-grade connectors
  • 3 units of GECKO® AYERS ROCK DI 200P dual-channel passive C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile DI boxes

“With only one pair of REVELATION SR 615RF loudspeakers, we achieved a tremendous leap in sound clarity, intelligibility, and balanced sound coverage. With the full GECKO® C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® sound system installed, the sound team is now able to mix much simpler as if they are mixing in the studio with a pair of highly-precise reference monitors. The overall instrument mixes have improved tremendously too with enhanced uncolored instrument tones derived from the use of the AYERS ROCK C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile direct injection boxes.

Overall, the church is very happy and satisfied with the end results. Praise be to God," says Morgan Woan, Engineer of GECKO® Borneo.
