CCF Church — Massive Sound for a Massive Hall

Manila, Phillipines | July, 2014 -
Founded in the early 1980s, CCF (Christ's Commission Fellowship) has grown from a 40-member evangelistic bible study group to become one of the world's mega-churches, with membership in the tens of thousands and numerous satellites across the globe. Over the years, the church has moved several times as its numbers have outgrown its seating capacity, and in May of 2013, CCF opened the doors to its new world headquarters. CCF Worship and Training Center's 750,000 square foot building is home to the church's offices and school, a youth and sports center, a 10,000-seat chapel, and a 2,000-seat overflow hall.

Audio for the massive space was designed in part by Vance Breshears of the San Diego, CA offices of Acoustic Dimensions, and installed by Manila-based Joint Venture Sound, Light, and Entertainment Concepts. The main system comprises 36 Renkus-Heinz STLA/9R line array loudspeakers. Front fill is provided by 40 Sygma Series SG81-2R compact 8-inch two-way loudspeakers, with 12 DR18-2R dual 18-inch subwoofers covering low frequency reinforcement.

The smaller (relatively speaking) 2,000-seat overflow hall is covered by a system of 16 CF101LA-52R compact modular point source line array speakers, with 26 more SG81-2R cabinets covering front fill. Four DR18-2R subs handle the bottom end in the room. Renkus-Heinz Senior VP Ralph Heinz and engineer KK Tan assisted with commissioning the system.

"The new CCF church headquarters is a breathtakingly beautiful architectural space, and Renkus-Heinz is proud to have been selected to provide the sound for their new, state-of-the-art chapels," remarked Ralph Heinz.
