House of Worship Projects

There’s nothing easy about doing sound for the worship environment, where services range from traditional piano/organ with voices to high-SPL praise bands at rock concert levels — sometimes just hours apart.

Modern technologies have enabled the creation of worship environments with high intelligibility, wide bandwidth, superb coverage, controlled dispersion and mix tools that allow the FOH engineer to translate the power of the word to the entire congregation, whether seated near the altar or in the last row.
