Creekside Bible Church updates with Fulcrum Acoustic loudspeakers

Creekside is a non-denominational independent Bible Church in Colorado's majestic
Front Range foothills. Having moved to a more modern sound for all their worship,
Creekside Bible Church realized their aging sound system needed updating to
support services in which reinforced music plays a larger role.
The Church selected noted Kansas City-based systems integrator Harvest A/V
Solutions to design and install their audio, video and lighting system upgrade.
The worship centres low ceiling required loudspeakers small enough to avoid
sightline interference, yet powerful enough to deliver high-fidelity music and
intelligible spoken word uniformly to inspire the congregation.
Harvest A/V Solutions' Jason Holmes based the system design on left/right clusters
of Fulcrum GX1295 12-inch and CX896 8-inch coaxial mains above the stage lip.
"The GX1295 top cabinets handle the long throw to the back of the sanctuary and
the CX896s provide fill for near field and centre aisle coverage while keeping sound
energy off the stage," explains Holmes. "I chose Fulcrum GX and CX boxes for their
even coverage, extreme clarity and transparency."
"Fulcrum's coaxial technology and design packs a lot of sound into compact and
lightweight cabinets. The super small clusters not only sound great but look right for
the low-ceiling room," states Holmes. "Onstage, Fulcrum US212 Dual 12 inch direct-
radiating subwoofers provide plenty of low end support. Fulcrum also provided
processor settings that made for easy setup and tuning, as well as a system that
sounded terrific right out of the box."
"The old sound system was hindering our ability to minister, and making it difficult
to preach from the floor which helps me connect with the congregation," explains
Pastor Torrey House. "Beyond solving our immediate sound quality and coverage
challenges, the new system has the capacity to meet the needs of our planned
expansion to double the sanctuary's size."
