Church media director praises SD5, in particular, for ease-of-use, meeting needs and price point
Central Church of Charlotte, NC is one of the latest Houses of Worship to become a “House of DiGiCo,” as its media director testifies that services have never felt so inspirational, easy and intuitive to mix since installing its first SD5 console in the church’s main sanctuary a year ago. In addition, new DiGiCo boards have now also been installed in its Student Life Center (SD8 and SD9) and Family Life Center (SD11) facilities.
Don Kendrick, Central’s director of media services, notes that a second SD5 will also soon be going into a new audio/video suite, designed by Dallas-based Russ Berger Design Group, which is currently under construction and slated to be completed in the first quarter of 2015.

Although First Missionary Church established in Niles, Michigan over fifty years ago, it has been only in recent years that its growth has begun to strain the resources of its small sanctuary. The church elected to move to a new location, where it could build a larger multipurpose room and, as time and funds permitted, additional infrastructure, such as a dedicated sanctuary. Because the new building is located on a hill amid the relatively flat topography of southern Michigan, the church also elected to change its name to Summit Church. However, the name was all that changed. The church did not change its contemporary approach to delivering engaging services, which includes a full band with vocals, keyboard, guitar, bass, and drums. To present those services with maximum impact and intelligibility, Minnesota-based Audio Video Electronics (AVE) designed and installed a sound reinforcement system centered on Danley Sound Labs SH-96 and SH-60 Synergy Horn loudspeakers.

Congregants praise new loudspeaker solution for its impact and intelligibility
In today’s high-technology climate, the challenge facing many dynamic Houses of Worship is to maintain congregation engagement. At Tucson’s Pantano Christian Church (PCC), half of weekend services feature modern Christian rock, yet worshipers were regularly voicing they couldn’t properly hear the music or the message.
Nearly two years ago, when a new pastoral team stepped into leadership at PCC, they declared an upgrade to the worship spaces’ audio, video and lighting systems a top priority, and HOW systems integrator CCI Solutions was called in to specify and install an L-Acoustics ARCS “WIFO” (WIDE/FOCUS) loudspeaker system.
Todd Gathany, CCI’s senior systems consultant on the Pantano project, faced a difficult obstacle: the worship space actually consists of three distinct spaces. The main sanctuary has adjoining gymnasiums with their own bleachers in the back on both sides – with floating air walls separating them from the big room. The walls are moved to the sides for major events, opening the facility to a capacity of 2,000. Gathany notes, “The new PA that we designed had to work for all three spaces individually, but then had to easily come together to cover the entire space as one in a very cohesive way so the experience would be similar regardless of what room you’re in.”
