LD Systems CURV 500 Series & ICOA 12 A installed at St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Bangalore

St. Thomas the Apostle Church was constructed in a record time of 20 months with work starting in January 2020. Though the construction was affected due to multiple lockdowns, the parish priest Rev. Fr. Deva Dass made sure the work went along on time, following all the necessary safety protocols. It was his dream to ensure that the church was equipped with the best of the best equipment and no compromise was to be made with any aspect of construction.

To fulfil this dream, Rev. Fr. Deva Dass brought in AV system designer & integrator Amrith Rathnam of Craft Lighting to execute his vision of modern technology integrated into this beautiful structure whilst always adhering to the design principles of the church. Complete design and integration of the audio systems in addition to the interior & facade lighting were provided by Craft Lighting.

Amrith Rathnam of Craft Lighting shares, “With 15+ years of industry experience, we have always believed in introducing new state-of-the-art solutions since the beginning of our journey.

In our search for the best we had planned for a different solution, but when I met Nitesh Narayan and received an offer and demo of the CURV 500, we were impressed! After some deliberation in regard to the sound coverage, loudness, aesthetics and product design, we decided to add the ICOA 12 A active speakers as well and were happy with the entire package and its budget. Most importantly, the delivery schedule was met by StageMix, which was essential considering the logistics uncertainty due to the pandemic. The CURV 500 is small in size but powerful, and simple to install & rig. The ICOA 12 A active speakers have been used as monitors for the altar area and choir. The coaxial driver and rotatable horn have been very useful as the choir monitor had to be placed on the floor. The voice cuts through clearly and the priests are happy to be able to hear themselves. The system has performed as expected and we are happy that our clients have loved the result. All in all, it has proved to be the right fit for this project and we are happy to have chosen this solution.”

The church witnessed a grand inauguration ceremony on October 3rd with Rev. Bishop Peter Machado conducting the blessing and inauguration service. Over 200 parishioners attended performances by 3 choirs. “Everyone was amazed at the clarity and even output of these small speakers. Amrith Rathnam is a professional and has outdone our expectations. Thanks to his service and for introducing to us this efficient system”, said the church management.
