A non-denominational free church headquartered in Oftringen in northern Switzerland, ICF Mittelland reckons to offer dynamic, contemporary worship and has recently upgraded its audio system to a full KV2 system.

ICF MittellandThe church is housed in the Celebration Hall at the You Event Center in Oftringen, which offers space for 800 standing places or 350 seats, depending on the event. The highlight of the week, the Celebrations service for all age groups takes place each Sunday and is a loud, cheerful and passionate occasion accompanied by a worship band.

In August 2018, a new floor was laid in the Celebration Hall. The technical equipment including the audio system also required a complete upgrade. The greatest challenge was to provide optimal sound for a wide, yet not very deep hall – a challenge met by Swiss A/V and lighting specialist, Plusmusic.

Once room acoustics had been addressed using acoustic panels on the ceiling and walls, Plusmusic arranged a demonstration of a range of KV2 equipment in situ. Technical Manager Patric Neeser and the church team decided to invest in a KV2 point source system as a result: ‘The sound quality is truly remarkable,’ Neeser confirms.

‘First, the definition and transparency are stunning, and secondly, the wide dispersion of the SL412 system is perfect for the shape of our venue. It’s a difficult area to cover from an acoustic point of view, being very wide and shallow, but we have managed to achieve smooth and even coverage across the whole area.’

Plusmusic supplied a pair of wide dispersion SL412s driven by an SL3000 amplifier for the main PA system, supplemented by a pair of VHD2.18J subwoofers powered by a VHD3200. Depending on the event, two EX6 full-range loudspeakers and an ESD5 centre speaker are used for stage monitoring/fill.

‘Our new KV2 audio equipment enables us to fill the entire room with high-quality, crystal clear sound – so we can get right to the point, and everyone can hear us,’ Neeser reports.
