    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

    A new sound reinforcement system serving the 1,800-seat Interstake Auditorium at the LDS (Mormon) Temple in Oakland, CA, incorporates technologies from the Bose Professional Systems Division. The worship facility had presented significant challenges to sound system designers ever since it first opened in 1964, including strong, focused echoes, somewhat heightened ambient noise levels, and a ceiling built too low for that type of room. These difficulties needed to be addressed once and for all, and as cost-effectively and efficiently as… View this post

    Have you decided to take the big plunge into pictures by turning your once humble audio room into a full-fledged video facility? Or perhaps you merely wish to have some basic audio-for-video capabilities so you can do audio for TV commercials as well as radio spots. Either way, welcome to the world of synchronization. Despite what you my think about sync to picture, it isn’t as easy as it seems. “Hey, I deal with timecode every day,” you say. Sure,… View this post
