    Located in a converted Bi-Lo grocery store, the Calvary Chapel campus sits amongst the hustle and bustle of downtown Chattanooga, making the building a visible and accessible part of the community. The space is reminiscent of its former self through the concrete floor and open corrugated metal ceiling. As part of the renovation Calvary Chapel cleared the columns and raised the roof, opening up the 100 by 100 square foot space and adding a bit of acoustical treatment to the… View this story

    Since its founding in 2001, Grace Point Church (GPC) has made an effort to remove the traditional barriers that hinder the ‘unchurched’ from attending worship services. Ultimately that factored into the deployment of an audio system comprised entirely of Tannoy loudspeakers and Lab.gruppen amplifiers for their new worship center in July 2013. Providing highly intelligible, natural sounding reinforcement during services of both speech and live performances by their twelve-piece praise band was a priority, but GPC also wanted the facility… View this story

    “We’ve never really had a sound system that worked for our church. Since 1982, when the worship space was built, it has always been a challenge to provide full, consistent audio,” admits Charles Malmede, Media Services Director for Whitesburg Baptist Church of Huntsville, Alabama. Twenty five hundred seats wrap 180 degrees around the sanctuary, including a full balcony. Embracing a wide variety of both traditional and contemporary music, an average service demands versatility from any sound system. Malmede spent most… View this story
