RCF provides perfect coverage of more than 10,000 square meters with more than 500 speakers in the latest religious complex built in Russia. The Main Cathedral of the Russian Armed Forces (Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ) is a Patriarchal Cathedral in honor of the Resurrection of Christ, “dedicated to the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, as well as the military feats of the Russian people in all wars”. The impressive 100 meters-tall building was completed in May 2020 in the Patriot Park in the Odintsovsky District, Moscow Oblast. The steps and other metal parts were cast from melted Nazi weapons.

The interior capacity of the temple holds up to 6,000 people. The church is located a few hundreds meters from the nearby open-air museum, celebrating the historical times of the Great Patriotic War. The temple’s main complex is 11,000 square meters.

“The task wasn’t easy,” Sergey Gurin, ARIS Head of Development and Corporate Clients said. “We were asked to equip the area in front of the temple with a sound reinforcement system, and to equip the 1418 “Memory Road” multimedia museum complex with an additional sound reinforcement system, with the best product quality in the shortest time.”

A wide variety of products were installed, ranging from 50 wide dispersion P 3115T weatherproof coaxial speakers to more than 250 MR 33T near-field two-way speakers. More than 80 CS 6940EN weatherproof column speakers and a large quantity (more than 100) of HD 3216T weatherproof horn loudspeakers were also installed.

The acoustic system provided by RCF operates on the street in front of the temple and in the Memory Road multimedia museum complex. “It’s a big scale project, but we know how to manage these challenges. We trust the system integrator, Avilex, they have good expertise and RCF supported us with all the material we planned with perfect timing, as usual” concludes Gurin.
