With the new GECKO® C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile sound system installed - easier operation, lower maintenance/running cost, clarity, intelligibility, balanced and equal volume coverage can be achieved while meeting OSHA safety standards for health (hearing).
11 December, 2016: The Bethel Presbyterian Church Singapore 新加坡長老會伯特利堂 celebrated its 133rd anniversary this year. Prior to this recent upgrade, the speaker system for the 500 pax seating capacity main sanctuary consisted of 4 units of 12” speakers with 2 units of 15” subwoofers plus 4 units of 8” satellite speakers. Sound from the main sanctuary was sent to the 300 pax seating capacity annex hall via a unit of high SPL double 15” speaker cabinet. The walls were treated with full fledge fiber wool acoustic panels to absorb the bounces in both the halls.
This year the church took a big leap in total make over for its main sanctuary - those fiber wool acoustic panels were removed and walls were repainted, old electrical wiring grids were replaced with new ones, and audio visual systems upgraded.
GECKO® C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile technology and equipments have been chosen for the sound system upgrade. The decision was made after having gone through a series of selection and testing of systems of different makes. This upgrade is necessary to resolve their long-time intelligibility (muffled sound), sound coverage, and howling [unusual Potential Acoustic Gain (PAG) versus Needed Acoustic Gain (NAG)] issues, among others.
