    When faced with a need for either a significant improvement to an existing sound system or an entirely new sound system, the most often-heard advise is “hire a qualified consultant.” Or at least it should be. But many churches balk at the notion of paying a fee to a professional to help with sound system needs. The thinking: this is not money well spent because there always seems to be “someone” in the congregation confident in his own abilities to… View this post

    Over the years I’ve seen many haphazard approaches in establishing gain structure through a sound reinforcement system. Often rough adjustments can be made to make the problem less apparent, because gain is easily and cheaply available in today’s industry. Years ago, when a 100-watt power amplifier was used to power the main loudspeaker system, gain structure was a critical issue. Today, with the advent of amplifiers that can output levels of 1,000 watts or more per channel, proper gain structure… View this post
