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.”

It is with deep regret that A/V integrator Morgan Sound, Inc. of Lynnwood, Washington, announces the passing of co-owner, Susan Morgan, on July 25, 2018. She fought a fierce battle with Ovarian Cancer for four years, constantly managing her treatment and pushing her doctors for options that would save her life. “It was a duty that she, my wife Jody Adams, and I never set aside,” states Charlie Morgan, President of Morgan Sound and business partner of Susan. “I take comfort in knowing that we cared for her and stayed in her presence to the very end.”

In the early years of the company, Susan managed virtually all aspects of the day-to-day operations while her partner and then husband, Charlie Morgan, was touring with many national and international artists, and she continued to do so even after Charlie stopped touring, organizing and purchasing new inventory for both retail and live sound operations. Managing her own client list, of which there were many, her early adoption of the coming age of digital consoles positioned the company to post great gains when many of her church and sound clients began to switch over.
