ET Quake Multimedia Rocks Nigeria’s “House On The Rock” With JBL VERTEC®
Powered Line Arrays
NORTHRIDGE, California – In a house of worship installation that showcases the easy configuration
capabilities of JBL VERTEC® line arrays, Nigerian systems integration firm ET Quake Multimedia recently
upgraded the audio system at The Refuge in Abuja, Nigeria, a branch of the Lagos-based House on the Rock
Church. UK-based independent consultant Roland Hemming provided system design assistance, relying on the
superior performance characteristics of VERTEC® DP Series powered line arrays with JBL DrivePack™
technology to provide the facility with a clear, powerful full-bandwidth sound reinforcement system.

Built in 1999, The Refuge is one of 40 House on the Rock worship sites and mission facilities in Nigeria. Pastor
GoodHeart Obi C. Ekwueme leads The Refuge, which acts as a springboard for strategic ministry operations in
northern Nigeria and beyond. As the evangelical organization has expanded, so has its need for improved,
high-performance audio systems for its churches.

                                         The Refuge’s new main PA system features two arrays in a left-right
                                         configuration, each containing 10 JBL VT4887ADP-AN powered
                                         compact line array elements, and three JBL VT4880A ultra-long
                                         excursion, dual 18-inch arrayable subwoofers. Using onboard
                                         amplification and digital signal processing technology designed in
                                         cooperation with Crown and dbx, each JBL VT4887ADP-AN compact
                                         line array loudspeaker contains a DP-2 DrivePack, providing 2,200
                                         watts peak (1,100W continuous) output power. With suspension
                                         hardware including quick-release pins and end-mounted metal frames
                                         to couple adjacent units together in rigid but flexible arrays, the
                                         VERTEC loudspeakers helped simplify the installation process. “The
                                         VERTEC line arrays were a very good fit for this project,” Hemming
                                         said. “They were easy to configure and the actual installation of the
                                         loudspeakers, with all the rigging, took less than a day.”

                                          Complementing the main line array system are eight JBL AC28/95
                                          loudspeakers dispersed throughout the worship space as delay fills. A
                                          total of 16 VRX915M stage monitors are available to serve the
                                          venue’s performance-based worship services. Crown MA12000i and
                                          MA5000i amplifiers power the loudspeaker elements not equipped
                                          with JBL DrivePacks, while the system also features a Soundcraft
                                         MH3 mixing console at the front of house position. Signal processing is
                                         achieved with dbx DriveRack 4800 Loudspeaker Management
 The audio installation crew             Systems, and a variety of AKG microphones round out the new system
