Christian Life Assembly is a thriving church in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. Its pie wedge-shaped sanctuary seats approximately 2,000, a capacity that is met many times over during the staging of its regionally-famous Christmas pageant. However, the church struggled to deliver high-impact services and feedback-free performances. Its thirty-eight-box distributed loudspeaker system couldn’t deliver the goods. Local AVL integration firm Emmaus Media & Design came up with a plan to replace those 38 loudspeakers with just five Danley boxes, including two Danley J2-96 Jericho Horns, as well as new Danley systems in the youth and the kids’ rooms – all for less than half of what other firms bid for the sanctuary system alone.

“Danley’s well-designed point-source loudspeakers can do the work of numerous line array elements, which makes a Danley system way less expensive than a comparable conventional system,” explained Tim James, owner of Emmaus Media & Design. “On top of that, Danley’s phase coherence and fidelity make their boxes sound better than conventional designs. The pattern control is amazing. In short, Danley boxes cost way less, sound way better, and give me all the pattern control I need, so why mess with anything else?”

Simple, Beautiful, and Unobtrusive: A Single Danley SM100 Provides Clear, Intelligible Audio for Grace Primitive Church

Grace Primitive Baptist Church in Pearl, Mississippi supports a close-knit community of believers with very traditional services. Spoken word and sung vocals are the focus, with occasional support from backing tracks. Its long, rectangular sanctuary can accommodate approximately three-hundred congregants, but until recently, many of them had difficulty understanding what was being said or sung. AV integration firm Sound and Communications (SoundCOM) of Flowood, Mississippi solved Grace Primitive’s intelligibility problems by designing and installing a new sound reinforcement system led by a single, unobtrusive Danley Sound Labs SM100 full-range, point-source loudspeaker.

“The old loudspeaker they had in there was original to the building, which is seventeen years old,” explained Allen Cotton, solutions architect with Sound and Communications. “They weren’t pleased with the coverage or the clarity. They called our office and we arranged to come by and visit. As a certified Danley designer, Danley’s point-source fidelity was in the back of my mind the whole time. During the visit, we learned that they were not only hopeful that their intelligibility problems could be fixed, they wanted it done in a way that had no visual impact. They wanted something that was unobtrusive.”

Up from two-hundred congregants fifteen years ago to over 1,600 today, Ephrata Community Church in Ephrata, Pennsylvania has enjoyed the blessing of continued growth. Managing that blessing has been challenging, however. It necessitated increasing from one service a weekend to four, which taxed staff and damped the development of a full network of relationships across the community. Hence Ephrata Community Church launched an ambitious capital campaign to design and build a new state-of-the-art sanctuary that would accommodate 1,600 people. Local AVL integration firm Clair Solutions worked with the church from the very inception of the project to design and install a system that would capably meet their needs and provide room to grow while still keeping to a strict budget.

Clair Solutions’ relationship with Ephrata Community Church began with a small video project many years ago. The church wanted a new center projector and screen in their previous sanctuary, and Seth Morth, Clair Solutions engineering manager helped coordinate that purchase. “They appreciated our command of the technology and the way we worked with the people who will operate it, as well as our transparency and forthrightness,” said Morth, who served as the point person on this new sanctuary project.

Buckinghamshire Music Trust (BMT’s) Battle of the Bands (BOTB) contest for young aspiring musicians was this year blessed by having two of the world’s leading pro audio manufacturers provide a top tier concert touring spec. By being able to broadcast their sound through a premier touring PA, on a Dante backbone, will have taken the 12 bands competing in the final into new territory. The two High Wycombe-based manufacturers concerned were Martin Audio, and Focusrite Pro, both now under the umbrella of parent company, Focusrite plc.

It was Stephen Button, Focusrite’s EMEA Channel Marketing Executive, who established the relationship with Buckinghamshire Music Trust (BMT) several years ago. It started when he helped them out as a local musician with their monthly event Guitari Lounge, an open mic night created for under-18-year-olds.

With live-streaming soaring, the class-leading Shogun 7 HDR monitor-recorder-switcher is in high demand. It’s easy-to-use live switching and multi-channel ISO recording function make it quick and easy to deploy into settings from houses of worship to colleges, to vloggers front rooms. It offers a no stress setup to create live multi-camera content in no time at all.

This weekend saw churches turning to live streaming to continue serving their congregations during lockdowns. One London church was able to stream their Sunday service direct to YouTube with the help of the Shogun 7. Like many British churches they had no existing live-streaming infrastructure so needed a simple solution that could be set up quickly by the more technical members of the congregation. Using borrowed older Sony FS700 cameras connected to the Atomos Shogun 7 monitor-recorder-switcher they were able to set up and operate a whole multi-camera system with minimal setup, all at a safe distance.

Danley Sound Labs’ SBH-Series Loudspeakers Moves Toronto’s Knox Presbyterian Church From Cavernous, Inarticulate Sound to Fantastic Intelligibility and Musicality

In Audio, Audio Install News, home_page, Image, Install News, Uncategorized, Web Articlesby admin

The history of Knox Presbyterian Church in Toronto, Ontario stretches back all the way to 1820, and it has been in its current building across the street from the University of Toronto since 1909. Its ornate, high-ceiling sanctuary accommodates 550 people and inspires congregants with its sublime beauty. Unfortunately, Knox’s sound reinforcement system was nowhere close to commensurate. Poor intelligibility was largely due to a renovation that radically changed the acoustic nature of the space rendering the previous system untenable. Couple that with a transition from traditional to contemporary music forms created the perfect storm that left the church with inarticulate sound. The AV integration department at local music store Sherwood recently changed all that with a new sound reinforcement system that leverages the exceptional pattern control of Danley Sound Labs SBH-Series loudspeakers. The new Danley system keeps energy off the walls and treats congregants to crystal-clear, point-source fidelity.

Hearing Is Believing: It’s All Danley Gear For New Land O’Lakes Campus

Now celebrating its twenty-sixth year, Grace Family Church started with just eighty people in a former jazzercise storefront next to a bar in Tampa, Florida. It has subsequently grown to over 12,000 members! To accommodate so many members, Grace Family Church operates satellite campuses. Its sixth campus opened in Land O’ Lakes, a suburb of Tampa, and AVL firm All Pro Integrated Systems, of Pensacola, Florida, helped design and install the AVL system there. Since many of the decision-makers at Grace Family Church had never heard a Danley Sound Labs system, All Pro arranged for a demo that proved persuasive. The now-finished system includes Danley’s patented point-source Synergy Horn loudspeaker technology, its patented Tapped Horn subwoofer technology, and seven Danley multi-channel amplifiers with built-in DSP and presets for every Danley loudspeaker and subwoofer. Perhaps in the spirit of its origins, the Land O’ Lakes campus is built into a former big box store… but instead of just eighty, it can accommodate 1,000 people!

Summit Woods Baptist Church Benefits From Danley Sound Lab Fidelity, Pattern Control, and Small Footprint

Summit Woods Baptist Church is a large but relatively young church in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. It moved into its first permanent sanctuary in 2004, a space that it had helped to design. Although most aspects of the 650-capacity, fan-shaped sanctuary (with room to expand to 1,000) were serving the congregation well, its acoustics and sound reinforcement were not. Their blended service style – everything from a contemporary band to choir to orchestral instruments – lacked the impact it deserved. Avoiding the expense, footprint, comb filtering, and destroyed sightlines of a line array, AV integration firm Advanced Sound & Communication, of Kansas City, Missouri, designed and installed a Danley Sound Labs system with excellent intelligibility, pattern control that minimizes the impact of the poor acoustics, and a small footprint that maintains a clear view of the video screens and stained glass windows from any pew.
