    Erected in 1875, Cornell University’s Sage Chapel seats over 700 people plus a large choir for services and other events. The sound reinforcement system is designed to help voices carry with intelligibility in the large space as well as support musical instruments. Its latest upgrade condensed seven feet of rack space used for 1990s-era processing and amplification into just seven inches using an Ashly Audio Pema 8250 and an Ashly ne4250pe. Each unit combines Ashly’s Protea signal processing with clean,… View this story

    Legacy United Methodist Church in Bismarck, North Dakota, opened the doors on its new worship space in late fall 2013, just in time for the holiday season. Featuring contemporary worship and music styles, the church hosts several services each weekend to a large and vibrant congregation. The challenges selecting a sound system were familiar: vocal intelligibility from the pastor and the musicians, a well-balanced sound mix for music, a versatile system for a number of applications, even coverage for the… View this story

    Originally known as “Free Church” when it was founded in 1848, St. John’s Congregational Church in Springfield, Massachusetts is one of the nation’s oldest predominantly African-American churches.

Recently completed, the new sanctuary features a Danley Sound Labs sound reinforcement system that delivers precise intelligibility and soul-moving bass. “St. John’s… View this story

    line array
    Mark Frink 02/26/10 02:12 PM, 0 Comments
    As with all sizes of modular line array enclosures there are several designs in the “mini” genre, which we define as those with 7-inch “woofers”. The simplest two-way systems have a single cone driver and a high-frequency driver, side by each. Some employ dual woofers, and those with a center high-frequency section that provides horizontal symmetry. Quasi-three-way solutions use dual woofers, but cross one over earlier, so the other is the single source of mid-range, eliminating cancellations. True three-way designs… View this story
