Colorado Springs, CO – April 2014… With more and more houses of worship incorporating contemporary style services into their worship programs as a means of engaging youth, the ability of the sound reinforcement system to deliver a high level of speech intelligibility and music reproduction becomes increasingly important. After all, if the congregation can’t understand what’s being said or relate to the music, it’s very difficult to engage them. That’s why Mountain Springs Church recently upgraded their sound system—drawing upon loudspeakers from the Convert series catalog of Valencia, Spain-based D.A.S. Audio.
Colorado Springs, CO-based Sight and Sound Technologies, a design / build firm that exists to help churches and organizations excel in the areas of sound, lighting and video, was contracted to design and deploy the church’s new sound system. Kris Johnson, the company’s C.O.O. was involved in all aspects of the project. He discussed the challenges of the job and his reason for deploying D.A.S. Audio’s Convert 15A loudspeakers and SX-218A powered subwoofers. more

That’s why John Penn, CEO of Undercurrent Labs, producer, 3D sound designer and songwriter, insists upon the sonic accuracy of his D8 studio reference monitors from San Diego, CA-based Equator Audio. more

Engaging the congregation in order to make services relevant in this age of shortened attention spans and instant gratification is a challenge all houses of worship encounter. Of particular importance, if the audience can’t understand what’s being said, the message is lost. Hence, the ability to provide good sound reinforcement is essential—and the audio chain starts at the input stage. Recognizing this, Cathedral of Faith relies on its assortment of H6 Headset and E6 Earset microphones from Menlo Park, CA-based Countryman Associates to get started on the right footing. more
