Teil 1: Neues Beschallungskonzept für die Basilika Dormitio Abbey in Jerusalem mit aktiven Schallzeilen der Evo-Serie von Steffens Systems.
Wir sind stolz auf die hervorragende Arbeit unseres Teams, das die Herausforderungen der Auslandsarbeit sehr zur Freunde aller Beteiligten souverän abgeschlossen und einen reibungslosen Ablauf des Projekts gewährleistet hat. Wir danken dem Bauherren und allen beteiligten Partnern vor Ort für die konstruktive Zusammenarbeit und freuen uns auf zukünftige Projekte.
As the leading German manufacturer of loudspeaker systems for church sound acoustics, Steffens-Systems was recently contacted by the Basilica Dormitio Abbey in Jerusalem. As part of the extensive renovation, the abbey needed a customised sound concept that met the special, acoustic requirements of the basilica and used state-of-the-art technology. After we received the request, we immediately started to create the concept.
To find the best possible solution, we carried out an internal simulation. The measurements showed that the best result was achieved with a combination of 2×2000 and 2×1000 Evolutone NG/T loudspeakers.
The close cooperation with the client paid off. Based on this, various options for microphone placement, the exact positioning of the sound lines and the amplifier centre could be discussed and determined.
After the presentation of the concept, the order was placed and the production of the loudspeakers began. These were then sent to Jerusalem by sea freight in the desired special colour. It should be emphasised that projects abroad bring logistical challenges, especially when it comes to making arrangements regarding the final assembly and the exact scheduling of the preliminary work as well as the arrival of the material. But our experienced staff overcame these challenges and successfully completed the assembly and installation.
We are honoured to be part of this important project at the Dormitio Abbey Basilica in Jerusalem and to contribute to improving the acoustics and thus the spiritual experience of the church visitors. We are proud of the excellent work of our team, who confidently completed the challenges of the overseas work much to the delight of all involved and ensured the smooth running of the project. We thank the client and all the local partners involved for their constructive cooperation and look forward to future projects.
