Durban Christian Centre

Durban Christian Centre

Durban Christian Centre was established in 1979.

One of the most iconic features of Durban Christian Centre is the Jesus Dome, a large auditorium that can seat up to 5000 people and is used for celebration services, conferences, and events. The Jesus Dome was built and designed by architect Brian Johnson. The dome has a diameter of 60 meters and a height of 30 meters and is covered with a white membrane that reflects the sun and creates a striking contrast with the blue sky. The dome is visible from many parts of the city and has become a symbol of worship and unity for the church and the community.

The audio installation at DCC features two stereo arrays of EAW KF730 loudspeakers with a compliment of EAW SB730 flown subs, and multiple EAW SB1000zR ground stacked units. The installation included a delay arc of EAW’s MK8196, a versatile installation model commonly used in venues requiring accurate reproduction with high output. Processing was provided by EAW’s Greyboxes, with FIR based DSP ensuring accurate processing for maximum performance.

The KF730 and SB730 loudspeakers are designed to provide high output and accurate reproduction in a compact format. The KF730 is a 3-way line array loudspeaker that features a 1.75-inch voice coil neodymium compression driver and two 6.5-inch mid transducers, with 2 x 10-inch Low frequency side firing drivers. The SB730 is a compact subwoofer that features two 12-inch cone transducers per cabinet. The SB1000zR is a larger subwoofer that features a dual 18-inch cone transducers. A combination of high-performance touring amplifiers was used for this installation.
