    Built in the mid-1920s, The Moody Church in downtown Chicago accommodates more than 3,700 worshippers, making it the largest non-pillared auditorium in the metro area. Amplification inside the vast oval sanctuary was once fraught with challenges until the recent replacement of a 20-year-old main cluster with a new Meyer Sound MINA line array system. “To the untrained eye, the new cluster doesn’t look that much different,” admits Michael Arman, the church’s audio/visual technical coordinator, “so you might not notice we… View this post

    EAW has appointed Steve Davis to the position of service manager. A long-time member of the extended EAW family, Davis for many years held this same position, before shifting his focus to his company Performance Audio of New England (PANE), where he continued to contribute with his service expertise. Coincidentally, PANE has been located in the same mill complex where EAW designs and manufactures its loudspeakers. The announcement was made by EAW president Jeff Rocha and reflects the company’s dedication… View this post

    The sanctuary of the church of the Salvation Army in Clearwater, FL, was recently outfitted with a new sound reinforcement system by Florida-based CSI: Christian Sound Installations that is headed by Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers, subwoofers, monitors and processing. “The main trouble with the old system was a profound lack of intelligibility together with deeply uneven coverage,” explains Paul Garner of CSI. “It started out as a tight-packed center cluster of horn-loaded cabinets, and the church paid someone too much… View this post

    Editor’s Note: While this article discusses delays in a theater environment, the information can be applied to any situation. In an ideal world, the best system would be a single point source that would cover every single seat in the house at the same level with the same frequency response. This is easy to state, tough to execute. Most theaters have walls, ceilings, domes, balcony boxes and balcony fronts, chandeliers, canopies, sidewall projections, pillars, pilasters, plaster pachyderms, which get in… View this post

    Post production facility Union Editorial has upgraded the monitors in the larger of its two audio production and mixing studios with Genelec Active Monitors. Because the L.A.-based facility regularly handles high-end agency clients, including Chevy, McDonald’s, Fiat and Diet Pepsi while also doing a fair share of feature film work and movie trailers, it needs 5.1 monitoring that can cover the gamut of media needs. The new monitoring system, consisting of three Genelec 8250A Bi-Amplified DSP Monitors for the L-C-R… View this post
