The San Diego church recently installed two Yamaha Rivage PM10 Digital Audio Consoles for front of house and monitor mix duties. The system was designed and installed by Jeff Stewart, senior consultant at Clark audio design and engineering firm, based in Southern California with headquarters in Atlanta. “The church required a high input and output count,” states Stewart.

The house of worship features vocalists and musicians, and seats 3,450 worshippers with an average weekly attendance of 15,000. The dynamic of the services consist of a contemporary worship set, small acoustic set, choir, and musical productions.

“After having had a demo on the Yamaha PM10, we all agreed that this is the best sounding console we have heard, notes Noah Hawley, senior technical director at Rock Church.

Audio engineers Nick Aguigui and Josh Frohman each man a PM10; Aguigui at front of house and Frogman at monitors. When asked about specific console features, the two engineers said they like how the console sounds right out of the box. “The console is easy to use right from the beginning, especially when training church volunteers. The Rivage PM10 is intuitive and its layout is practical; specifically, the overall power and flexibility of the entire system including Rupert Neve Designs SILK and VCM processing, custom fader banks, the RIVAGE platform, and easy to navigate control surface.” Referring to their two previous consoles, the engineers report that the Yamaha PM10 is more intuitive and flexible.
