    Romance wasn’t the only thing in the air this past Valentine’s Day weekend; so was an L-Acoustics K2 loudspeaker system flown at Hollywood, Florida’s Hard Rock Live for three sold-out concerts by Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. Andrea Taglia, who has served as Bocelli’s FOH engineer for nearly nine years, specified the system, which was deployed by PRG. A longtime fan of L-Acoustics’ K1, Taglia also recently used a similar K2 system design for a series of sold-out US arena shows… View this story

    Two nearly identical venues have become the first theatres in Canada to be equipped with the Meyer Sound LYON linear sound reinforcement systems: Edmonton’s Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium (NAJA) and Calgary’s Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium (SAJA). Both long-time Meyer Sound users since 1983, the 2,538-seat auditoriums selected LYON as they looked to upgrade from their trusty M2D line array loudspeakers, a decision made jointly by Mark Belkie and Paul Schmitz, technical coordinators for audio at SAJA and NAJA, respectively. “In… View this story

    Marking the introduction of an all-new loudspeaker design, Harman’s JBL Professional today announced the debut of its Control HST wide-coverage loudspeaker featuring patent-pending HST Hemispherical Soundfield Technology. The indoor/outdoor Control HST achieves extremely wide horizontal coverage approaching 180° and uses the wall it’s mounted on to its advantage. “Our new Control HST not only overcomes the inherent acoustic reflections that typically occur with wall mounting, but actually makes the wall an integral part of the loudspeaker’s operation,” said Rick Kamlet,… View this story

    D.A.S. Audio launches the new Event M210A, a three-way stage monitor in a double 10-inch, dual-band configuration. The dual-band configuration permits the twin 10-inch loudspeakers to work in tandem for maximum power at low frequencies. Above the low frequency range, the advanced digital signal processing allows the 10-inch speakers to operate independently in specific frequency ranges, eliminating off-axis interference between the drivers to maintain optimal polar and frequency response characteristics throughout the low and low-mid operating ranges. The D.A.S. loudspeaker… View this story

In order to effectively communicate the message through spoken word or music, a good acoustical environment is critical. Poor speech intelligibility or inadequate music reproduction can make it difficult for members of your congregation to receive and understand the message as it was intended to be heard. Acoustics is a comfort factor. The acoustics of your space should be as important as, or even more… View this story
