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.

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

Tasked with bringing the supernatural power of God to this generation of worshippers, King Jesus International Ministry was founded by Apostle Guillermo Maldonado and his wife Prophet Ana Maldonado. Today, the ministry has a global reach that extends throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. To ensure their message is delivered clearly, church leaders rely on the clarity and natural sonic performance of E6 Earset and B3 Lavalier microphones from the catalog of Menlo Park, CA-based Countryman Associates.

Edward Puerta is the Director of Production and Engineering for King Jesus International Ministry. He is responsible for all production and the related technical disciplines at King Jesus Ministry facilities, including a 6000-person sanctuary, a 14,000-square foot TV studio, a University, and more. Additionally, he serves as the live event producer for all of Apostle Maldonado’s national and international events, which can range from small arenas for 2,000 people to outdoor, open fields with greater than one million people in attendance at any given time. Puerta discussed his fondness for Countryman microphones and provided insight to their use within the organization.

Danley Loudspeakers, Subs, and Amps/DSP Installed at Maryland’s Lighthouse Church

In Audio, home_page, Install News by Chris Hardin

Founded at the turn of the century – this century, Lighthouse Church in Maryland has been growing apace since the day it opened the doors at its original, 24,000 square-foot building. To accommodate the demand, the church opened satellite campuses and continually expanded the number of weekend services offered, but it was never enough. Thus, Lighthouse Church recently moved its flagship services to a new 74,000 square-foot building in Glen Burnie, Maryland. Solsound, a Maryland-based A/V integration and production firm that had worked with Lighthouse Church in the past, designed and installed a distributed Danley Sound Labs sound reinforcement system that includes Danley SH (Synergy Horn) loudspeakers, SM speakers, GO2 compact loudspeakers, TH (Tapped Horn) subwoofers, and DNA multichannel amplifiers with onboard DSP and Danley model processing templates.

With Fewer Boxes, Danley Sound Labs Revitalizes First Baptist Church of Ashland, Virginia

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

Ashland Baptist Church was organized by fifteen members on August 20, 1858. That first meeting was held in the Union Meeting House, currently the Masonic Hall on England Street, and served as the worship center until the dedication of the new church on Railroad Avenue. That “new” church building also served as a hospital during the Civil War. In 1967, the congregation moved to its present location. Since that time, several wings were added including a new sanctuary and fellowship hall to accommodate their growing congregation. When church leaders determined that a new sound reinforcement system was needed to improve intelligibility and musical impact, they also knew that it could not come at the expense of First Baptist’s sanctuary aesthetics. Audio/video integration firm RTW Media designed and installed a Danley Sound Labs system that satisfied both the sonic and visual objectives by minimizing the number of speakers that were required to provide precise, intelligible coverage.

In Audio, home_page, Install News, Video by admin


St. Mary Magdalene Parish’s first mass was held at the Apex Middle School in 1999, and until recently, the school gymnasium remained the congregation’s makeshift sanctuary. While grateful to its host, the congregation needed a home of its own. At last, after two years of construction, the lovely new St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church opened its doors this year, welcoming a capacity crowd of about 1,450 congregants. To worshippers’ delight, every word spoken from the pulpit and every note performed by the band and choir could be clearly heard, thanks to a new Renkus-Heinz ICONYX IC2 sound system designed and installed by Cary, North Carolina, design/build AV systems integration firm AVCON Inc.

D.A.S. AUDIO LOUDSPEAKERS HELP DELIVER THE MESSAGE AT SOUTH BISCAYNE CHURCH

In Install News by tfwm

Solid throw, wide horizontal dispersion, plus vocal and music clarity characterize new system attributes

South_Biscayne_ChurchSouth Biscayne Church is a faith and Bible believing, Southern Baptist Convention church that offers a high energy, always exciting worship experience for all ages. Bringing quality audio and video functionality to the church’s worship experience was a particularly challenging endeavor because the space was originally developed as a shopping center and, hence, not optimized for its current purpose. With careful planning and the right equipment however, services are a vibrant, contemporary experience—thanks in no small part to the sonic excellence delivered by loudspeakers drawn from the catalog of Valencia, Spain-based D.A.S. Audio.

GC Pro (Guitar Center Professional Division) of Atlanta, GA—working in conjunction with Tampa, FL-based Event Resource Group—ultimately designed and deployed a sound reinforcement system at the church utilizing D.A.S. Event 208A 3-way active line arrays, Event 218A dual 18-inch powered subwoofers, Action M12A 2-way powered stage monitors, and a DSP-26 stereo / mono processor for loudspeaker management. GC Pro Account Manager Brad Lyons engineered a fully comprehensive upgrade plan for South Biscayne Church’s FOH and stage audio, broadcast audio, video for IMAG (image magnification), and broadcast video. He discussed the project and his reasons for selecting D.A.S. Audio.
