Clarifying lessons at The School of Nichiren’s Daijozan Houonji Temple


The School of Nichiren's Daijozan Houonji Temple has been equipped with a new sound system to reinforce sermons and deliver announcements with clarity. Hibino sound installed JBL Intellivox DSX280 HD powered column speakers.

The School of Nichiren's Daijozan Houonji Temple was founded in 1909 by Tatsuko Sugiyama. It imparts the text of the Lotus Sutra and the teachings of 13th-century priest Nichiren.

'To provide optimum sound coverage, ensuring that all visitors can hear the sermons clearly, the temple management requested us to implement a system that would provide crystal-clear audio quality during the events,' said Akio Taniguchi, branch manager at Hibino. 'We used JBL's Intellivox column speakers and the Soundcraft digital mixer, to set up a robust sermon delivery system. The combination delivers full and balanced audio coverage over the entire seating area, ensuring that every guest receives a superior listening experience.'

The Intellivox DSX280 HD speakers deliver consistent audio coverage up to 35m. Hibino also installed Soundcraft Si Expression 1 digital audio mixers to control the system.

'As a result of significant reverberation in the main hall where sermons are delivered, it was often difficult to make out the priest's words and there were some areas where the sermon could barely be heard,' said a spokesperson from Houonji Temple. 'Amid discussions of alternative sound delivery systems such as earphones, a test of the Intellivox speakers using the DSP to control the vertical spread of the sound provided a major improvement in clarity. The response has been excellent from the visitors. With the addition of the Si Expression 1 mixer and other changes to improve the system's overall sound, the quality is significantly better in the office and other areas as well.'
