Electro Acoustics specifies and installs four-array KARAi/SB18i rig for main sanctuary

Christ Chapel Bible Church knows sound. The 30-year-old church in Ft. Worth has steadily expanded since it was founded in 1984, adding new buildings to its evolving main campus and recently opening a satellite location, and all of the main venues have state-of-the-art sound systems from a number of iconic brands.

Like many contemporary houses of worship, Christ Chapel Bible Church recognizes that delivering a powerful message requires a sound system that can offer utter clarity for the spoken word and clear, clean sound for a strong music program. In order to achieve all this and stay at the forefront of sound system technology for its main sanctuary, Christ Chapel Bible Church chose to purchase and install an L-ACOUSTICS KARAi line source array system – the version of KARA specifically tailored for the fixed install market.

Historic church improves intelligibility and coverage and conquers feedback with new sound system

Completed in 1837, St. John the Evangelist is a historic Catholic Church in Frederick, Maryland with a Grecian ionic design and a cruciform floor plan. The church has carpeted floors but its spacious marble and plaster interior and hardwood pews create major challenges for voice intelligibility.

St. John’s existing sound system had poor intelligibility and coverage and a recurring feedback issue. In 2011, Eric Johnson of Audio Video Group offered St. John’s a new system using Community’s ENTASYS column line source loudspeaker system.  Johnson performed a live demonstration that showed his design could provide intelligible sound with even coverage while minimizing audio feedback.

Oakwood Church using SwiftTec’s DMX LightShow

In Install News, Web Articles by tfwm

swifttek-oakwoodIn today’s church we have the issue that our members are made up from all areas of the community and in smaller churches we may not have enough skilled people to run the technology we would like to use. Modern DMX-based lighting is one such area. With the complexities of modern DMX fixtures such as moving head lights the average person would be put off from trying to operate the lighting system. Oakwood Church, in Taunton, Somerset, UK is using SwiftTec technology to overcome this barrier.

SwiftTec Ltd is a small software development company (www.swifttec.com) with many years of experience in software design and development which has developed some unique software for controlling DMX fixtures. It has been designed so that once programmed it can be easily operated by anyone who knows how to operate a computer.

A turn of the century church gets an Allen & Heath audio upgrade

“We are a very Leesburgenergetic and dynamic congregation, there is a lot going on in our Church on Sundays, and every day of the week” says Stephen Wolgamott, Worship Pastor of The First Baptist Church of Leesburg, Florida. Since the church was founded in the 1880’s the congregation and its activities have steadily grown to a population of over 1200 individuals and families. “Our three Sunday services include a twelve piece orchestra, a seventy person choir and six individual praise vocalists. Oh, yeah, and a five to six person contemporary band” says Wolgamott. Energetic and dynamic would seem an understatement.

This past year the Church completed a thorough renovation of its main sanctuary, which now includes an Allen & Heath ILive T112 console for front of house and an Allen & Heath GLD 80 mixing board for the adjacent broadcast/audio recording center. As with many older buildings, there were untraceable noise feeds happening in the audio chain. Challenges not easily overcome with older, analog consoles. Enter Tim Huff, President of Entertainment Arts of Orlando, Florida…

The Naz Upgrades to New Yamaha Digital System

In Install News by tfwm

Yamaha CL5 The Naz lowThe Naz Church in Grove City, Ohio main auditorium seats approximately 2,800 people and has a congregation of 3,000. The church recently installed two Yamaha CL Series Digital Audio Consoles (a CL5 at front of house and a CL1 at monitors), eight Rio input/output boxes: two Rio3224-D, two Rio1608-D, two Ri8s, and two Ro8s. The system was purchased through Boynton Pro Audio (Norwich, NY) and installed by church staff and volunteers.

“This was not our first experience with digital consoles,” states Matt Groves, Technical Director at The Naz. “We previously used a Yamaha LS9 at monitors and a Yamaha PM1D at front of house. The purchase of the CL system began when we started looking for a replacement monitor console because our Yamaha LS9 was stolen from the monitor booth. One of our front of house engineers, Doug McLaughlin with Tech Art Productions in Columbus, suggested we purchase a CL Series, and after researching it more, we discovered how functional it would be for us. Our audio engineers are volunteers with previous digital console experience on our LS9 and PM1D, so the only training required was to watch the self-training videos on the Yamaha website. The set up and operation of the CL system was very user-friendly.”
