Zoodio Pro Equips Divine Mercy Church





Situated in Bhayandar, Mumbai, the Divine Mercy Church whose foundation was laid in 2014 has recently undergone a process of a new sound system installation. This installation headed by Zoodio Pro Consultancy having a wide variety of Martin Audio products, was key in making the best recommendations for the church. The church has also received the first delivery of Behringer X32.

Zoodio Pro Consultancy and his team has designed the audio for several projects including St. John The Baptist Church in Thane where they met and connected with Divine Mercy Church committee for this project.


While conducting the initial site survey, Zoodio team spoke with the church committee to understand their concerns. Commenting on this Dylan Hilton, project manager and coordinator, Zoodio Pro Consultancy, says, “The client was looking for a new system which would help in providing good quality sound to the parishioners with low maintenance and easy to use.”

Post the initial survey and understanding the room dimensions, balcony, and architecture of the church, Zoodio team decided to suspend Martin Audio O-Line (Main PA) from the roof in the front corners of the sanctuary. Along with CDD8 (Delays and Monitors), Powersoft M50q & M28q amplifiers, AKG D5S (Choir) vocal microphone, Shure CVG 18 and Shure MX418 d/c Gooseneck microphones. Helping the team determine the optimal balance of audio performance given the church’s sanctuary and area.


While explaining about the reason behind the choice of the equipment, Dylan Hilton, expressed, “We have included Martin Audio because it’s the most trusted brand for us till date and Powersoft low maintenance amplifiers with better tonal quality.” Further, he adds, “We have decided upon BehringerX32 because it is a digital console and helps in fine-tuning the mics as per their requirement. As well now the church also has an audio ministry that actually handles the mics for the choir during the masses.”

Technical Challenges

Throwing light on the challenges faced and solutions determined during the installation process Allwyn D’sa, Chief Sound Engineer of Zoodio Pro, expressed: “Since the church ceiling had a height of almost 40ft, the major challenge was to fly the system as rigging and hardware had to be fabricated. Due to the glass windows and the architectural design of the church, there was a lot of echo which was taken care by adding an acoustic panel to the ceiling of the church which was done by Ultra Acoustics. Since we have been working with Martin Audio for a long time the Display 2.3 helped in placing the speakers the appropriate height so that we could get equal coverage throughout the place as well as the Venu 360 crossover helped in getting a perfect equalization which was expected from our side.”

The Martin Audio speakers were supplied by their distributor Integrated Entertainment Solutions, while the rest of the equipment was supplied by Vardhaman Mega Tech Pvt Ltd.
