GECKO® Resolves Audio Issues at Wan Ming Methodist Church 衛理萬民堂

Having completed the assessment, the GECKO® technical team concluded on the use of GECKO® C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile technology to solve the long-standing issues the church faced.

The team came up with the following list of GECKO® C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile products to form the simplest yet most effective setup design:

(a) 2 units of GECKO® REVELATION SR 615RF 15" 2-way full-range C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile long-throw speakers to be used as the front-of-house (F.O.H.) speakers;

(b) No foldback and filler speakers;

(c) No acoustics treatments;

(d) 1 unit of GECKO® EXODUS MXR 1604DSP 16-channel C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile mixing console;

(e) 1 unit of GECKO® GENESIS AG 400H 3-tier C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile Class H power amplifier;

(f) 1 set of GECKO® PASSION MP 621W/RP 211U wireless microphones system;

(g) 1 lot of GECKO® TRUTH T2 audiophile speaker cables;

(h) 1 lot of GECKO® TRUTH T3AL audiophile signal cables;

(i) 1 lot of GECKO® OLYMPIAN series audiophile connectors;

(j) 1 lot of GECKO® Aura accessories.

“With only one pair of speakers, audiophile quality sound can be heard from any point within the hall including stage, below mezzanine, and even the carpark! Thanks to the GECKO® C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile and WaveGuide technology which produces high accuracy sound waves, sound was able to transmit to a far distance, which in this case was well above 100m without losing clarity. Sermons could be heard clearly even in the open air carpark as well when the church door was left open!

With this setup, the church was able to enjoy audiophile listening at an affordable budget, whilst solving issues which could not be solved previously on a conventional audio system due to audio equipment limitations.

Overall, church was and is very happy with the results. Praise be to God!”, said person in charge.

Another quality project by GECKO® Borneo.

3 August, 2014: Located in Sibu, Sarawak, the 350 pax seating capacity Wan Ming Methodist Church 衛理萬民堂 has recently completed its sound system upgrade with GECKO® C.R.I.S.T.A.L.® Audiophile products.

Previously, the octagonal-shaped church has been facing issues such as unwanted reflections (echoes), dead spots, and muddiness in their PA system's soundscapes. Most musicians, worship leaders, and preachers complained on having a hard time hearing themselves on stage even with the presence of foldback speakers; while the congregation complained on having a hard time understanding the sermons due to muddiness of the sound from the front-of house (F.O.H.) speakers and the multiple filler speakers installed.

To resolve these issues, the church approached GECKO® Borneo for full technical assessment based on the church's applications and budget.
