Sound Image Designs New System Around NEXO ID Series
|BUENA PARK, Calif. (November 1, 2016) — The Walla Walla University (WWU) Church is located on the campus of Walla Walla University, a private Christian liberal arts university in College Place, WA and just a few miles from Walla Walla. Recently, Sound Image (Escondido, CA) recommended a NEXO ID Series low profile, high-output loudspeaker system as a suitable solution for the Fellowship Hall at the WWU Church. The all-purpose hall seats 150 in stage configuration and is used primarily for worship and Sabbath services, receptions, and meetings.
Daniel Rafuse of Loma Linda (CA) University recommended the NEXO ID system to WWU Church. Sound Image, Rafuse, and with assistance from Yamaha staff, designed the system using NEXO NS-1 software. Rafuse completed final tuning.
“With the low ceiling of the room, we needed something that was very small and could tuck up to the ceiling so we wouldn’t lose any head room, states Brandon Rinas, Design Sales Engineer, Sound Image. We required a speaker system with good output because WWUC has a contemporary worship service once or twice a week for 100+ college students. We also needed a few different horn patterns to fit within the wide room and wrap-around seating area.”
Rinas said Sound Image received a demo of the NEXO ID at the 2016 InfoComm Show and then sent a few boxes to Rafuse at Loma Linda University for his use and to see how really good they sounded. “We knew we could get the output needed from the NEXO ID. It is the perfect size speaker for this application.”
