The Centro Evangelist Peninsular Assembly of God (CEPAD) in Salinas, Ecuador, South America, recently installed a new sound system consisting of Nexo and Yamaha products specified by Muzeek World of Orange County, CA.

According to company owner, John Sardari, the system consists of 14 NEXO GEOS 1210 line array speakers, two GEOS1230s, three NEXO RS18 Ray Subs, NEXO 4X4 amps, and a Yamaha CL5 Digital Audio Console with one each Rio3224-D and Rio1608-D input output boxes. Muzeek World is also credited with the design of the new system.

Filling a need

“The demand for a quality and powerful audio system was the requirement by the church, and they requested a proven brand, so we recommended the NEXO GEO S12 line array system which was approved immediately,” states Sardari. "The Yamaha CL console was chosen because of its scalability and network capabilities. Dante played a big role in the decision as well and the fact that Yamaha is the leader in the digital console world.”

The entire system is covered each week, and in the event of rain, it is taken down and moved to an interior worship center.

With a seating capacity of 5,000 at the outdoor church, two services are conducted every Sunday. The services are both traditional and contemporary formats. For the contemporary services, the band consists of two keyboardists, electric and acoustic guitarists, drums, percussion, three main vocalists and 12 choral singers. There are more than 7,000 members participating in worship.

“The church staff is super happy, and the quality and coverage of the NEXO GEO S12 system is just amazing,” Sardari adds.
