New York’s Redeemer Church Solves Problems with Martin Audio WPM

Danley Sound Labs’ Great Directivity Solves Feedback and Intelligibility Woes at Living Water Bible Fellowship

Living Water Bible Fellowship in Alamosa, Colorado had a pair of related problems that frustrated the staff’s ability to deliver a transparent, distraction-free service. First, the pastor could not get his microphone nearly loud enough before feedback threatened to overtake his voice, with predictable wincing among the assembled congregants. Second, even when feedback wasn’t a problem, lack of intelligibility and impact made it difficult for congregants to fully lose themselves in the music or the moment. Local AV integration firm Lambda Audio Visual, of Monument, Colorado, designed and installed a new Danley Sound Labs sound reinforcement system that did away with both issues via incredible pattern control and phase-coherent, point-source fidelity. “Living Water Bible Fellowship contacted us looking for some ideas to help improve the sound system in their main worship room,” explained Ryan Durbin, owner of Lambda Audio Video. “We visited to check out their system and immediately noticed the unique shape and orientation of the room. It’s a rectangle with a peaked ceiling, with the stage set up on a long wall. There are balconies on both sides that look down on the stage from above. The space fits about 150 people. The orientation and loudspeaker placement created a ‘boomy’ reverberant sound in the main worship area. They were having a lot of difficulties producing defined sounds. Moreover, the room shape and a soffit area above the stage left no obvious place to put a loudspeaker for general coverage.”
