    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   The first time I heard the word crossover was in the context of “Chris, plug those into the crossover unit.“ I was clueless.  I was helping with a live gig setup and even after being told EXACTLY where to plug in the cables, I still didn’t know what the crossover unit did.  Funny thing about it, crossovers are easy to understand.  Implementation…well, that’s a bit harder. What Is A Crossover Unit?… View this post

    St Paul’s Methodist Episcopal Church (presently known as St Paul’s United Methodist Church) in Cedar Rapids, Iowa is listed on the United State’s National Register of Historic Places and is essentially the work of architect Louis Sullivan, the so-called “father of skyscrapers.” Sullivan’s aspirations however, were high, beyond what the church’s congregation could reasonably afford back in 1912. The restraint exercised back then by architect W.C. Jones, when he re-drew Sullivan’s plans under instruction from the church, meant that two… View this post

    Now settled into its new purpose-built theatre, the Improv Comedy Club in Houston, TX., has cemented its reputation as one of the country’s premier showcases for comedic talent.

    New Hope Baptist Church in Atlantic City, which offers contemporary-style worship services in a sanctuary that seats 250, called upon ACIR Professional (Egg Harbor Township, N.J.) for new main loudspeakers as well as their installation. ACIR recommended Yamaha DSR112CA self-powered loudspeakers, to be joined later this year by Yamaha DSR118s subwoofers. Bobby Harper of ACIR notes that size, weight, price, and especially sonic performance were the deciding factors in selecting the dual DSR loudspeakers that are flown above the front… View this post

    In designing a distributed audio system for Monterey, CA event venue, Perry House, balancing the needs of the venue’s guests against the expectations of their neighbors was key to the choice of Tannoy and Lab.gruppen products. “They wanted reliability and high quality, but they needed it to sound very clear, even at low volumes, especially outside,” explains Kurt Yeager, owner/president of Monterey’s StreamLife Home Technologies. Purchased and renovated by Jim and Cheryl Cox’ of Events by Classic in 2010, Perry… View this post

    Nestled in the rolling canyons of Pacific Palisades, California, Saint Matthew’s Episcopal Church is one of the area’s oldest and largest parishes. The sprawling 42-acre grounds are home to multiple buildings including St. Matthew’s Day School and Pre School, as well as recreational facilities and the acclaimed Moore Ruble Yudell-designed sanctuary. While wonderful to behold, the sanctuary’s stunning architecture, with its soaring ceilings and exquisite glass work, has long suffered from problematic acoustics. As Daniel Bae, project manager for Sierra… View this post
