    church sound
    Chris Huff 07/09/12 12:59 PM,
    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   What would you do if more and more people started complaining about the volume?  Would you consider it a congregational movement to kick you out of the sound booth?  Would you take it personally?  Would you consider it might be a result of an evolving congregation? Reading through my email this week, I found a letter from a congregation member regarding the sound level at their church.  Quite surprised that it… View this post

    From humble beginnings in 1947, Crown Audio has grown to become one of the world’s largest manufacturers of power amplifiers. Crown’s history traces back to 1947 and an Elkhart, Indiana minister named Clarence C. Moore (1904-1979). Moore, a longtime radio enthusiast, had spent the early part of the ’40s in Quito, Ecuador working for HCJB, a non-profit Christian broadcasting and engineering group.

    The receiver is a crucial component of wireless microphone systems, as it is used to pick the desired signal and transfer its electrical information into an audio signal that can be amplified and used for a loudspeaker system. Understanding basic receiver design, audio processing, squelch, and diversity operation can help ensure optimum performance of the system. Virtually all modern receivers feature superheterodyne architecture, in which the desired carrier is filtered out from the multitude of signals picked up by the… View this post

    When Living Hope Church in Piperton, Tennessee, moved into its new 700-seat worship center, one of the main goals was to achieve high-impact, high-resolution sound. “Having started as a portable church, we wanted our first permanent facility to make a big statement about how far we’ve come,” says Tim Johnson, technical director for the suburban Memphis church. “That meant the best in sound and video, but within a definite budget.” The church decided that they were very interested in a… View this post

    People who work behind the scenes in the music business rarely receive public adulation.

    Brian Pickowitz 07/06/12 11:11 AM,
    Crown Audio is celebrating its 65th birthday in 2012, and while this is a notable achievement for a technology company, a key contributor to our sustained success comes from an organizational willingness to view past successes in the rear view mirror and look for new ways to innovate and improve. Yet there are also times when we look to an existing platform and explore new ways to improve it. Both of these courses were integrated with the development of the… View this post
