With over 50 years of ministry and community service, Tabernacle Church, located just outside Nashville, in Clarksville Tennessee, decided in 2017 that to keep up with their tremendous growth, they would undergo a monumental change with a grand new construction project, to reemerge as Mosaic Church—adding 65,000 square feet to their campus, including a 1,500 seat performance space.

When audio and integration firm, Holly Media was asked to oversee the expansion of the performance space, owner Fred Holly, with over 30 years of pro audio experience, led the design effort. “With new dynamics and changing needs, the scope of the ministry has changed—it’s become a new work,” said Holly. “Tabernacle seemed old fashioned. The name didn’t match the demographic of our church because it’s very diverse—and it’s thriving. The new Mosaic Church wanted to reflect that.”

The original structure was a smaller sanctuary [about 200 seats] and was insufficient space for many years. The church adapted for larger congregations by expanding Sunday services to four per day. Recently through COVID, the church was mobile, moving its worship service to a local high school, setting up and tearing down in the parking lot each week.

To enhance its new facility with pristine sound for worship services and other events, Tauranga Elim Church selected a state-of-the-art HARMAN Professional audio solution that includes JBL Professional loudspeakers and Crown amplification.

Among Elim Church’s several locations throughout New Zealand and other countries, Tauranga Elim recently moved to a new facility. A move that was nearly two years in the making, the new location is much larger than the previous building and includes an auditorium that is able to accommodate 550 people. Wanting to offer guests and attendees an engaging experience with great acoustics to support the live modern contemporary music, along with crystal-clear speech intelligibility, Tauranga Elim required a premium sound system that delivers consistent tones at all volume levels with smooth, even coverage across the entire facility.

After holding services in makeshift spaces for literally decades, the parishioners of Ascension of Our Lord Catholic Church were elated to finally have a 700-capacity church of their own in La Place, Louisiana. The year was 2001, but there were issues almost immediately. “The original sound reinforcement design was terrible, and they had it replaced within two months by a different contractor,” explained Matt Dupuy, installation technician with Assurance AV Solutions. Dupuy, who also was a member of the church member as a child, continued, “The new system was better, but not at all great. They limped along with it for nearly two decades. There were always complaints, but it remained a backburner issue.” Dupuy is a member of the Assurance AV Solutions team that recently replaced the problematic system with Danley Sound Labs SBH10 column-form, point-source loudspeakers, finally giving the church the sound reinforcement system it had always dreamed of.

“The church was frustrated,” said Chuck Breaux. “They had been dealing with complaints from the start, but now the system itself was getting old. Ascension of Our Lord’s sanctuary is pretty standard for a Catholic Church – lots of hard surfaces and a high ceiling and, thus, lots of reverberation. The church’s sound tech is knowledgeable and, between him and Dupuy, they had done the very best they could with the old system. We designed a Danley point-source system using Danley Direct modeling software and presented it to the church with a quote.”

Originally dating back to 1623, the present First Bangor Presbyterian Church in Northern Ireland is a superb example of a traditional, early-Victorian Presbyterian meeting house.

When Rea Sound, who are based nearby, were first contacted by church manager George Monaghan, they were surprised both by the high level of organization, how specific the church was with its requirement, and how realistic it was with the large budget that would be needed to achieve this.

“In addition to a new sound system they wanted full AV and lighting as well,” stated Rea Sound project manager, Roger McMullan.

Award-wining engineer Steve Marcantonio named his Nashville-based studio “MusicHouse” as a nod to the one constant that has existed throughout his life, a house full of music. Having mixed tracks for major recording artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, and Blake Shelton, to name a few, Marcantonio is a renowned audio engineer in the Nashville recording scene. To hear the depths of his mixes without breaking the bank, Marcantonio relies on KRK Systems studio monitors and subwoofers, including the brand’s renowned V Series studio monitors and 10S powered studio subwoofer.

“I monitor at a low volume and the KRK V4 and V8 monitors both sound amazing at that level, which is really important, and the 10S sub helps out tremendously,” says Marcantonio. “I love my KRK V4 monitors more than anything; they’ve become a staple in my home studio. The V4s really fill the room and carry a lot of bottom-end, and the clarity and separation are really cool. KRKs are my favorite monitors to mix on as I know that they translate well, no matter where I’m working ― whether at the MusicHouse, The Blackbird Academy, or at home. KRK is second to none.”

Danley Loudspeakers and Subs Contribute to a Phenomenal Renovation at South Coast Christian Church

South Coast Christian Church in San Juan Capistrano, California, delivers an upbeat, contemporary service to an energetic congregation. However, its aging sound reinforcement system was holding the ambitious worship team back and preventing the full translation of the praise band’s talents and hard work. In coordination with a larger renovation, local AV integration firm Tech Arts designed and installed a new sound reinforcement system for South Coast Christian Church centered on Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers, along with new video and lighting systems.

“Our original sound reinforcement system was decades old and worn out,” said Jeff Wallace, technical director at South Coast Christian Church. “We were running at 25% of capacity!” In conjunction with a larger architectural remodeling, which would remove the soffit that housed the loudspeakers anyway, the church leaders reached out to Tech Arts to completely revamp their AVL system. Working in phases, the Tech Arts team had the new Danley sound reinforcement system installed in time for Christmas celebrations and many weeks of Sunday services before Covid-19 shut things down.

Love Joy Church has been serving the spiritual needs of its Buffalo, New York congregants since the early 1980s. It has grown considerably from its modest living-room-based, Bible-Study roots and today occupies a beautiful 600-person sanctuary in Lancaster, a suburb of Buffalo. Love Joy’s upbeat services and talented praise band are the heart and soul of its diverse ministerial activities. However, until recently, Love Joy’s congregants regularly complained that speech and lyrics were difficult or impossible to understand. Local AV design and integration firm TSH Audio fixed the problem with new Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers that leverage Tom Danley’s patented designs to deliver speech and music that is clear and impactful.

“The existing sound system at Love Joy Church was dated and the design didn’t work for the space from the start,” explained Timothy Harris, the principle and design engineer for TSH AV. “The coverage was minimal, and there were a lot of boxes at the front of the stage to compensate. But as often happens, more was less. Many people couldn’t hear the message, but if they turned the system louder, other people complained that it was painful.”

Having been raised by a musical family, Carlos Henriquez was destined to find his passion for the performing arts. As a Juilliard Music Advancement Program (MAP) graduate with an impressive resume, Henriquez joined the Jazz at Lincoln Center orchestra in 1998. Over the past 22 years, Henriquez has been touring the world with the orchestra, having been featured on more than 25 albums. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck the U.S. in March, Henriquez found himself attempting to record music from home for the first time. In need of a high-quality microphone to capture pristine recordings in his makeshift home studio, Henriquez turned to MXL Microphone’s REVELATION II tube microphone.

Led by internationally acclaimed trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, the Jazz at Lincoln Center orchestra relies solely on acoustics, not using any amplification or monitors while on stage. With this style of recording, microphones are more important than ever. “For our performances, we solely rely on microphones, which are directed by our Acoustic Sound Engineer David Robinson and Audio Engineer Todd Whitelock,” says Henriquez. “When we first began working from home, I had nothing to offer in terms of sound other than my iPhone and laptop. I ended up capturing a couple of recordings on my iPhone, which Todd was able to work with. However, listening back, it was not the high-quality audio that we are accustomed to at Jazz at Lincoln Center. I knew I needed to do something about it.”

As an interdenominational, full Gospel, Pentecostal Church where everyone is welcome, Taylor Church (https://www.taylorchurchministries.com/) offers a series of innovative ministries designed to help everyone gain a meaningful worship experience. Recognizing the value of a well-designed sound reinforcement system, church management recently elected to upgrade their sanctuary with a new system that draws from the Event Series catalog of Valencia, Spain -based DAS Audio.

BDH Technical Systems of St. Augustine, FL, a full service audio – video design / build firm that services both the worship and commercial markets, was contracted to design and deploy the church’s new sound system. Working in close cooperation with their business partner, Invisible Audio of Jacksonville, FL (an authorized DAS Audio dealer), BDH Technical Systems penned the new loudspeaker system design that incorporated DAS Event208-AW 3-way powered line array enclosures mated with DAS Event218-A sub bass enclosures. Craig Bruce, a partner at BDH Technical Systems who also serves as the company’s primary system designer, discussed the project.
