WorxAudio Loudspeakers from PreSonus® Create an Uplifting Worship Experience at Island Church

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

Guided by Pastors Grant and Jenni Brewster, Island Church aims to help people connect with God and with one another. Church leadership recently elected to upgrade the sanctuary’s sound reinforcement system and, to ensure even coverage, clear speech intelligibility, and robust music reproduction capability, they ultimately selected loudspeakers drawn from the WorxAudio catalog of PreSonus Audio Electronics, Inc. (www.presonus.com) of Baton Rouge, LA.

Essential Audio Group, Inc., a full-service AV design / build and production services firm with offices in Nashville, TN and Seattle, WA, was contracted to design and deploy the new sound system at Island Church. After consulting with church leadership, the Essential Audio Group team ultimately installed a combination of PreSonus WorxAudio X-Series and Wave-Series loudspeakers. John Wilson, President and CEO of Essential Audio Group, who oversees day-to-day operations—including system design—discussed the project and his reasons for selecting the PreSonus WorxAudio products.

The snow kept falling and falling. And falling. Reaching two feet, the weight of the snow was too much for the roof to bear at Calvary Fellowship. Ruptured pipes irreparably flooded the 1,100-seat sanctuary at a cost of over a million dollars in damage. “Luckily nobody was hurt,” says a thankful Lee Wiggins, head pastor at the church.

The renovation was major, and it changed the physical design of the space. Improvements were made at all levels, which rendered the budget to complete important final details relatively low. “Money was an issue but we all felt we still needed to offer our congregation the best possible worship experience, especially the level of quality of the audio production that delivers our sermons,” points out Pastor Lee. So, who got the call? “Clair Brothers, of course,” he says with a smile. “And it was the right decision.”
