Protech Distribution steers Eglise Éden Assemblée Dieu to success

Ivory Coast:

Located in Abidjan, Eglise Éden Assemblée Dieu delivers services to an expanding congregation of more than 2,000 people. The church has become so popular in recent years that it embarked on a full renovation to boost capacity to 2,400 congregants, including the installation of a steerable audio solution from Renkus-Heinz.

The new space introduced large glass windows, stunning marble work and dark wood pews – interior design decisions that typically come with their own set of acoustic challenges. “Normally you would say this is a very difficult, challenging and reverberant space,” explained Inza Bamba, managing director at Protech Distribution, which designed and installed system. “But with the Renkus-Heinz ICLive X system, you know you are going to make every space sound amazing. And that is exactly what we were able to achieve at Eglise Éden Assemblée Dieu.”

The ICLive X series includes the manufacturer’s Acoustic Source Multiplier (ASM) waveguide, which allows the HF section to be coaxially mounted in front of the LF section. This driver arrangement creates a more consistent and symmetrical array of both high frequencies and low frequencies along the entire length of the array, allowing the freedom to choose any acoustic centre available. In addition, the ASM reduces inter-driver spacing to ensure gradient-lobe free performance to very high frequencies.

The Eglise installation utilises one ICLive X module and one ICLive XL module configured into a single array on both the left and right side of the worship hall. Two ICLX118S-RN subwoofers add low frequency enhancement to the system.

The ICLive X also benefits from Renkus-Heinz’ steerable technology, allowing for sound to be digitally positioned where it’s required. “By utilising digital beam steering we could place the sound exactly where we knew it needed to go,” Bamba said. “The hall is very wide and nearly 50m-long, but with just the left and right arrays we were able to cover the entire church with even SPL distribution without the need for additional delays.”

Bamba used white speakers that are flush mounted to ensure the equipment blended in perfectly with the space. “It sounds absolutely amazing and the congregation is beyond happy,” he concluded. “That’s a typical result when you use Renkus-Heinz.”
