Knesel, who will be located at the company's U.S. headquarters in Kearny, NJ and who will start on October 7th, will report directly to Luca Giorgi, Sales & Business Development Director, Powersoft.

Powerful Faith: St. Gabriel the Sorrowful Mother Church Updates Sound System with Powersoft Quattrocanali Amplifiers

LogoWhen St. Gabriel the Sorrowful Mother parish of Avondale, PA unveiled their brand-new church in 2002 it was to account for the steady growth they had seen since originally opening in 1988. Boasting 7,500 regular worshippers across their weekly services, the church expanded to meet this demand and installed a new sound system mounted in the church's ceiling in order to reach all of its parishioners. Over the years however, the demands of a spoken liturgy required a different sonic touch which led church leadership to hire Monte Brothers Sound Systems to install a speaker and power amplifier system this year. The Ardlsey, New York-based company, which has made its name creating and building sound systems in places of worship across the country for the past fifty years, designed a system that would strike the delicate balance between volume and intelligibility– one powered by Powersoft Quattrocanali amplifiers.

Future Sounds: Jupiter Disco Boasts Crystal Clear Grooves with Powersoft M-Series Amplifiers

LogoBrooklyn's Jupiter Disco is a New York City club with a twist: instead of mimicking the look and feel of a dive bar from the city's storied past like so many others, owners Maks Pazuniak and Al Sotack built a room that looks to the future with a dystopian science fiction-derived aesthetic that wouldn't look out of place in a Phillip K. Dick novel or a Star Wars film. Complimenting the collection of LED screens, vintage electronics, and moody lighting is an impressive sound system designed by House Under Magic's Danny Taylor, which utilizes Powersoft M20D power amplifiers to provide the variety of genre-bending DJ's and performers booked by Jupiter Disco with enough power to launch the club into orbit.

Sweetheart of the Rodeo: Kesler Sound Brings Focused Low End to Western Events with Powersoft's M-Force

LogoKesler Sound has become the go-to sound production provider for Western events in Alberta, Canada and the neighboring territories across the border in the United States. Part of what has made Kesler Sound so successful has been their embrace of the changing and unpredictable nature of these events as they've transformed from the dusty rodeos of yore to modern-day multimedia events that incorporate a loud and varying soundtrack alongside live performers, announcers, and the traditional livestock entertainment that has kept large crowds in attendance season after season. Kesler Sound's latest innovation has been their implementation of the Powersoft M-Force transducer in their custom-made subwoofer boxes, a development which has changed the way they provide their services for these types of events.

Church of the Presentation Relies on Powersoft to Overcome Acoustical Obstacles

LogoFounded in 1961, Church of the Presentation in Upper Saddle River, New Jersey, began with a congregation of 270 families. Since then, it has brought together more than a dozen times that number of families over the last half-century, making it the largest parish in the Archdiocese of Newark — but, until recently, the church had not made any significant renovations to its original design. Rather than build a new church altogether, the parish raised over $6 million to overhaul the original building in order to accommodate its growing flock, and in early 2017 crews began construction on an ambitious design intended to open up more available seating for the burgeoning congregation. However, the design for the new worship space created a unique set of acoustical challenges when it came to plotting out and installing the renovated church's sound system, which is powered by Powersoft Quattrocanali 1204 amplifier platforms.
