    The venue where I serve as technical director has recently had a number of touring acts come through.  With each tour, there are always special technical requirements that the artists need, particularly in these tight economic times where few of them are able to travel with everything they need. The last three events, the venue was responsible for providing the entire house system, and for two of them, I served as the front of house engineer. When a tour group… View this post

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

    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
