profile showcases a non-denominational church whose desire
was a multimedia system that supported their live praise
and worship band and choir as well as host national recording
artists and worship leaders. With this end in mind, a
design was created that met the church’s two aims.
This relatively young church built a new worship center and incorporated cutting
edge audio and lighting designs. The church’s mindset
was that the building was erected in order to protect
the multimedia system. In the audio side of things, the
church’s requirement was a sound system that would keep
up with their style of worship. An LCR system anchored
by EAW speakers was specified. The design included six clusters (left, center, right,
delay left, delay center, delay right), front downfills
and subwoofers. EAW was also the choice for floor monitors and a distributed speaker system with Mackie Industrial (now EAW Commercial) and JBL Control Series speakers was installed. Providing the amplification was a rack of QSC CX Series amplifiers. The nerve center for the new system was the Allen & Heath ML-Series mixing console. Processing included dbx DriveRack systems for equalization and compression while Yamaha was specified for the effects processor. Countryman was also specified for instrument preamps on the platform. An existing headphone
system by Boling Electronics was integrated. The existing Shure wireless microphone systems were assisted by an antenna combiner/splitter with
the antennae being mounted above the control center for
better line-of-sight to the platform. Additional Shure Beta Series wired handheld microphones were provided. Audio-Technica large-diaphragm microphones were placed in the choir setup area. Outboard compressors
and noise gates were installed for musicians and vocalists.
Recording and playback units included the Denon cassette and CD players, Marantz CD recorder and the Mackie HDR24/96 digital multitrack recorder. Middle Atlantic and Raxxess racks hold everything in place, while Atlas microphone stands are in place on
the platform. A Clear-com communication system was installed throughout the sanctuary for audio, video,
lighting and spotlight operator communications. Powering
everything up and down in sequence is the JuiceGoose power sequencing system with remote units in the amplifier rack as well as in
each rack in the control center. Cabling and patch panels
included Pro Co, Horizon and Hosa.
the church’s desire to host concerts and use the in-house
system, the lighting was designed for a full concert.
The theatrical lighting system featured ETC products exclusively. The Express 48/96 console with Samsung LCD monitor was specified. Twenty-four Source Four ellipsoidal cans were installed as front floods. Sixteen PARnel fresnel cans were installed above the platform for shadow control. Architectural
lighting was integrated using the Sensor dimming rack with Unison external processing. Wall-mounted control stations were placed throughout the
sanctuary to control both theatrical and architectural
lighting. A DMX controller and additional channels on the connector strips were included for
future expansion using intelligent lighting.
