Danley Does It All (Again) at Fayetteville First Baptist Church

In Audio, home_page, Install News, Uncategorized by Chris Hardin

Fayetteville First Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Georgia is aware of its strengths, even as it shifts to a more blended worship style. The goal is to engage the next generation so that they keep their roots firmly planted at FFBC without going so far as to make church an alien experience for the older generations who have been supporting the church their entire lives. Although it met the church’s needs when it went in fifteen years ago, the sanctuary’s sound reinforcement system was straining under the weight of the more contemporary demands placed upon it by the shift in service style. FFBC hired Gainesville, Georgia-based dB Integrations – the same company that had designed and installed the older system – to update its 500-seat sanctuary with a new Danley-based sound system that could simultaneously deliver excellent spoken-word intelligibility and exciting musicality.

“We did Fayetteville First Baptist Church’s previous sound reinforcement system when I first started at dB Integrations fifteen years ago,” said Neil Philpott, sales consultant at dB Integrations. “We designed that system for a multi-purpose room because, like many churches, they hoped to build a dedicated sanctuary. But that never ended up happening and so the ‘multi-purpose room’ became the permanent worship space.”
