South Africa-Based Northwind Recording Selects EAW® Loudspeakers for CTMI
                        Church in Trianon, Mauritius

Whitinsville, MA, USA, February 17, 2010 – EAW , a world leader in audio system solutions, was recently
chosen as the loudspeaker of choice for a house-of-worship installation at CTMI Church in the town of Trianon,
near Port Louis in the island nation of Mauritius. Durban, South Africa-based Northwind Recording provided the
system design, analyzed the space’s acoustics and performed the installation. EAW’s South African distributor
Surgesound supplied the equipment and managed all processing and system alignment. Further consultation was
provided by EAW’s Whitinsville, Massachusetts-based Application Support Group (ASG), under the management
of Joe Fustolo.

EAW loudspeakers selected for the space included 15 EAW AX366 and AX344 Arrayable Install Loudspeakers,
six EAW JF50S Compact Full-Range Loudspeakers, eight EAW SB1000z Large Format Subwoofers, five EAW
MW12 MicroWedge Stage Monitors and two EAW UX8800 Digital Signal Processors. Amplification was provided
by ten Lab.gruppen FP+ Series amplifiers and one Lab.gruppen PLM 10000Q Powered Loudspeaker
Management System. The EAW AX Series models were arranged in a low-profile, aesthetically pleasing design in
two arcs following the contour of the church. The JF50S units were used as lip fill. Four SB1000z subs were
ground stacked, and the remaining four were flown, using different high pass filter (HPF), low pass filter (LPF) and
delays to create a constant low frequency response throughout the church. The MicroWedge 12 monitors were
spaced along the edge of the stage.

Northwind Recording principal Niklas Fairclough is a firm supporter of the EAW brand, having completed three
previous installations in South Africa using EAW AX Series Arrayable Install Loudspeakers. Fairclough
commented, “When we tested the system, we were blown away. With an SPL of 110 dB at the front-of-house
position, the system sounded superb and very clean, and we still had massive headroom available.”

Ruan Joubert from Surgesound, the Distributor of EAW in South Africa, was at the final stages of the installation
to act as the System Engineer and represent EAW South Africa. After using Smaart to make fine-tune
adjustments to the system, he commented, “With the combination of detailed acoustic design, carefully planned
EAW Model selections, the Pre-Install Planning and system design with help of EAW ASG, everything came
together, culminating in very a successful project with outstanding audio performance, which exceeded all the
client’s expectations.”
