Atlanta’s Mount Paran Church Becomes First House of Worship to Install L-ISA Hyperreal Sound Technology

For more than half a century, Atlanta’s Mount Paran Church has been celebrated by the evangelical world as a beacon of effective ministry and engaged, growing membership, evidenced by its 13,000-plus-member congregation. In fact, it was this very community of faith that pioneered the “one church in two locations” concept in the late ’80s that eventually laid the groundwork for multiple satellite campuses, now a hallmark of many of today’s houses of worship. So it should come as no surprise that Mount Paran is forward-thinking when it comes to the technology it uses to communicate its message, a point that was clearly underscored by its recent distinction as the world’s first house of worship to install a sanctuary loudspeaker system built upon L-ISA Hyperreal Sound technology.

“Good sound is one of the most essential elements in today’s churches, and achieving consistent, engaging audio throughout an entire worship space is mission-critical so that the congregation has a shared community experience,” says Tim Corder, Strategic Accounts Director – House of Worship for Diversified, the technology solutions provider that delivered the project. “The previous loudspeaker system in Mount Paran’s main auditorium had been in place for many years, and as it aged, it began to have component failures that created erratic coverage—sonically ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ spots throughout the room—which was hampering the worship experience for many of their congregants.”

d&b xC-Series Stands for Clarity at St. Eugene’s Cathedral

St. Eugene’s Cathedral, the mother church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Derry, opened in 1873 – and throughout the years since, generations of congregations have struggled with the acoustics inside the soaring stone interior. Now, however, following an extensive architectural refurbishment and technical systems upgrade, congregations can hear the services loud and clear and with greater consistency than ever before.

St. Eugene’s previous sound reinforcement system had never performed satisfactorily, as it is difficult to tame the reflections and reverberations in this type of space. Looking for a better solution, the church’s management turned to acoustical consultant Michael Kielty of Belfast-based MK Audio. Kielty recommended a distributed system, and contacted Absolute Technologies for a specific solution recommendation that would meet the church’s requirements.
