About the Project:

Divine Mercy, located just northwest of New Orleans is a 19,600-square-foot church that seats up to 950 parishioners and features a lovely interior with gorgeous exposed trusses and a high, vaulted, wood deck ceiling. Though it might be a heavenly place to worship, the new sanctuary is acoustically challenging. Hard and parallel surfaces abound. Adding to the challenges, the church hosts both traditional and contemporary mass, the latter featuring amplified instruments so keeping reflected sound to a minimum is critical. TSG’s solution: Renkus-Heinz IC Live loudspeakers with steerable beam technology. Read more about this audio solution from our product partner Renkus-Heinz.

“The Renkus-Heinz system works fantastically, and this beautiful new church has a sound system their parishioners can be proud of.”  – Bo Hoover
