The new electroacoustic system of the Church of Santa Maria del Pino is based on Bose speakers, Beyerdynamic microphones and a biamp digital array.

The Church of Santa María del Pino in Vinuesa (Soria), a temple of Renaissance Gothic style that began to be built in 1591, has completed the installation of its new sound system. An electroacoustic power carried out by the Professional Division of Gaps, for the company Sound & Services Soria, responsible for the installation of the system.

Bose DS-100SEIn order to obtain as much intelligibility as possible, within the limitations of this type of enclosures in terms of acoustics (high reverb time, reflective surfaces...), the system was designed based on linear array speakers Bose MA-12, which allow not to emit any sound towards the dome or to the ground, minimizing the reflections that cause great reduction of intelligibility. These speakers are amplified with Bose PowerMatch power stages, which allow you to adjust the speaker response via your internal DSP.

Biamp Nexia CSThe signal that reaches amplification comes from a digital matrix Biamp Nexia CS, which allows to process all microphones and signal sources of the installation. It is essential to be able to obtain good results that the management of the microphones is very careful. Therefore, Biamp's automatic mixing algorithm ensures that only the microphones you are talking to are open, so that the best possible system gain is obtained.

Bose MA-12In addition, the digital matrix allows equalization of the system response in the enclosure, as well as adjusting the delay lines to get the sound from the altar with greater intelligibility.

También es muy importante la elección de los micrófonos, ya que serán la puerta de entrada al sistema de sonido. Por ello, se han elegido micrófonos de la serie Classis de Beyerdynamic, que permiten una alta ganancia y tienen una cobertura muy definida que rechaza el sonido proveniente desde atrás.

Por último, la Iglesia de Santa María del Pino cuenta con un coro elevado en la parte trasera del templo, que también ha sido sonorizado utilizando altavoces Bose DS-100SE.

Carmelo García, gerente de la empresa Sound & Services opina: “Una vez terminada la instalación de todos los sistemas con el procesador de Nexia, el ajuste y ecualización de los elementos nos ha permitido, además de crear un refuerzo de sonido por todo el templo, uniforme y sin rebotes, que era el objetivo fundamental de la obra, añadir otros extras, como el poder realizar sonorizaciones y grabaciones desde el coro del templo, cuando la situación lo requiera”.

Este tipo de sistemas ya ha sido utilizado en otros templos como la Sagrada Familia, la Catedral de Barcelona, la Catedral de la Almudena en Madrid o la Basílica de Montserrat en Barcelona.
