Clair Brothers is First Choice for Sound at the Rock Community Church

In Audio, home_page, Install News, Uncategorized by Chris Hardin

Since 2006, Rock Community Church has grown by leaps and bounds, adding to its congregation through strong leadership, dedicated purpose and family values. Rock Community has thrived by assuring that each person in attendance receives an unforgettable experience every time they visit. Leaving no detail to chance, Ben Carson, Rock Community’s technical director along with other key church decision makers choose the best available partners to help construct as close to a perfect house of worship as possible, from the physical design of the building all the way to the sound system that delivers their powerfully contemporary sermons and live music performances. So, it makes sense that Clair Brothers speakers were the unanimous sound system choice for Rock Community church.

To make a greater impact through additional land, flexible building design and dynamic performance systems the church hired Kurt Butler, visionary engineering consultant and president of Butler Engineering & Technology Group (BETG) to help lead the way. Notes Mr. Butler, “The AVL and acoustics installation at the church was designed to be an inclusive and intimate experience for the congregation, so everything related to the systems we installed were measured against that metric.” It was BETG and a design team of architects that initially formulated a package that would shape the worship center in a specific way, mating performance systems to optimize coverage, sound pressure, sightlines, etc. Once Clair Brothers earned the work, system coordination and design optimization occurred through BETG and Clair Solutions collaboration.
