With a commitment to academic excellence and spiritual vitality, Asbury University encourages 1,325 students to study, worship and serve together on a campus located 20 minutes southwest of Lexington in Wilmore, Kentucky. Pro Sound has had a 20 year relationship with the school as a preferred vender for their audio and video needs. Projects include providing and installing video and sound equipment for classrooms, theater spaces, sports facilities and thier main worship facility, Hughes Memorial Auditorium.
The Hughes Memorial Auditorium, built in 1929, has been the scene of many great spiritual awakenings. With a seating capacity of 1,489, it is used for the three chapel services each week and dozens of special programs throughout the year. The latest upgrade to the sound system was the installation of a Worxaudio line array. Pro Sound tech’s worked closely with the facilities audio crew to design a system with excellent coverage and the SPL necessary for the many events held in this space.
The speakers used in this installation were the Worxaudio V8i-P. This powered line array box has (2) 8” LF speakers and (1) 1.4” exit HF device. It is rated at 138dB max SPL@1 meter and has a 120º horizontal throw pattern. Working with the design team at Worxaudio we were able to determine that an eight box system would do the job. Installation and commission of the system took 6 days. It has performed beyond the schools expectations and will be an asset to the school for many years to come.
