Holy Ghost Church Celebrates Mass with ICONYX Gen5

In Audio, home_page, Install News by Darryl Kirkland

Originally named Hickory Grove, Jerseyville earned its current name in 1834, when the town was surveyed and platted by two of the many residents who moved there from New Jersey. Jersey County was established in 1839, and two years later, the first Catholic Mass was celebrated in the new county. Holy Ghost Catholic Church, part of the Diocese at Springfield in Illinois, was established in 1883, although the current mid-century modern edifice is only about a half-century old.

Until this year, Holy Ghost Church’s sound system was of the same vintage, with two 1960s-style column speakers located at the extreme left and right sides, driven by an equally ancient four-channel powered mixer. In some ways the worst seat in the house was front and center. Today, the situation is entirely different thanks to a Renkus-Heinz ICONYX Gen5 sound system designed and installed by Output Unlimited of nearby Alton, Illinois.
