Hmm…. For purposes of our discussion, let’s consider two amplifiers. Amplifier A is rated at 1,000 watts (per side), into a 2-ohm load, with .1 percent Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), measured at 1 kHz, while Amplifier B… View this post

    Minnesota’s Eagle Brook Church is a thriving, dynamic house of worship which has grown from 300 people to over 11,000 parishioners in its 60-year history. As well, the church has grown in physical size, expanding from one to four locations, with a fifth slotted for the near future. Due to this tremendous growth, the technical infrastructure required a retooling. Last year, Eagle Brook’s primary main campus console, which was handling FOH, monitors and video broadcast production, was replaced with three… View this post
