Danley Pattern Control Navigates the Nooks and Crannies at Eastmont Baptist Church

In Audio, Audio Install News, home_page, Install News, Uncategorizedby

The 1,300-seat sanctuary at Eastmont Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama is both beautiful and unique. Pews wrap around a stage that is much wider than it is deep, and a large balcony overhangs much of the main floor in a similar wrap-around design. With the deep overhang, good sound reinforcement for Eastmont’s orchestra and choir would be challenging under the best of circumstances, but its previous sound system was a ‘Frankensteined’ amalgam of components and band-aids that sounded bad from the start and got worse over time. AVL integration firm Emmaus Media & Design, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, worked with Eastmont to design and install a high-fidelity Danley Sound Labs sound reinforcement system. Danley’s famous point-source pattern control allowed Emmaus to hit every seat with high-intelligibility, high-SPL coverage that varies by no more than 1dB!
“In addition to its regular Sunday services with orchestra and choir, Eastmont hosts a lot of touring acts,” explained Tim James, owner of Emmaus Media & Design. “Their previous sound reinforcement system was a conglomerate of components in a center cluster that was original to the building twenty years ago. The integrator evidently went out of business halfway through the project. It was a mess. The coverage was terrible. You couldn’t walk five feet without it changing. The balcony had no high-frequency content at all. Intelligibility was abysmal. When touring acts came through, they always had to bring their own PA. Eastmont wanted a new system that would sound fantastic day-to-day and that would make them proud when touring acts came through.”

James had three goals. First, he wanted to give Eastmont a stereo system to bring their music to life. Second, he wanted a system with excellent pattern control so that he could hit all of the seats without exciting the rather live acoustic space. Finally, he wanted boxes that could hit concert-level SPLs in service of the touring acts. “Danley is unique in delivering high fidelity, high SPLs, and great pattern control, even at lower frequencies,” he said. “I looked at the drawings and worked out a Danley system that would cover everything.”

From its humble beginnings in 1988 of gathering in the living room of founding Pastors Floyd Loudermilk and his wife Sara, the Anderson Mill Road Baptist Church (known locally as the Church at The Mill), located just outside of Spartanburg, South Carolina, recently outgrew its 800-seat home worship center and moved into a new, state-of-the-art multi-venue facility with a 2,200-seat main auditorium along with other environments to engage all members of the congregation — and especially young people.
To serve their growing vision, church leadership wanted to create an audio environment within their new facility that utilizes technology to offer a captivating worship experience. The new system needed to be able to accommodate the spoken word, full contemporary band performances, and a 150-voice choir.

Focusrite RedNet Offers Flexibility and a Future-Proof Setup for Fellowship Church Knoxville

In Audio, Audio Install News, home_page, Install News, Wireless Intercomby admin

Fellowship Church Knoxville, a four-campus church in east Tennessee, was an early adopter of AoIP technology. The opportunity came for an upgrade to the system, which its main campus in Knoxville, TN, got over the summer with the addition of several components from Focusrite’s RedNet range of Dante™-networked audio converters and interfaces, including seven RedNet MP8R eight-channel mic pre and A/D converters and two RedNet D64R 64-channel MADI bridges.
“We used the RedNet MP8R and D64R to completely rebuild the front end of the church’s audio system,” explains Phil Bledsoe, Integration Manager for The Production Source, the Knoxville-based AV integration firm that did the installation. “This church is incredibly savvy when it comes to technology — they did all of their own research when it came to choosing what to upgrade their audio network with — and they decided that RedNet was the way to go.” Bledsoe says the RedNet interfaces offered a high degree of flexibility for their current and future needs: the D64R provides ample I/O management for the church’s existing DiGiCo SD8 consoles, but with their Dante compatibility they will give the church a much wider range of choices when they’re ready to upgrade other components of the sound system. “RedNet and Dante will work with any digital products on the market, and the RedNet units are totally portable, so they can bring audio to any part of the building that already has a network point,” he adds.
Scott Bradford, Fellowship Church Knoxville’s Tech Director, and Robert Allen, the church’s Head of Audio, had narrowed their upgrade solution search down to three brands, but given their experience with audio networking, they quickly recognized the Dante-enabled RedNet devices as the most effective choice. “Our research process took almost a year — the old system was no longer being supported by the manufacturer but we had time, so this was not a panic situation with a key component melting down on us,” Bradford explains. “We could really get deep into how RedNet could help us.”
