QFLEX PROVIDES THE INTELLIGIBILITY ST BARNABUS ON THE DESERT REQUIRES

St. Barnabas on the Desert Episcopal Church in Scottsdale, AZ recently renovated their sound system around a pair of Tannoy QFlex 40 steerable array loudspeakers.

Built in 1960 under the direction of noted architectural firm of T.S. Montgomery, the 350-seat sanctuary features columns and arches, a high ceiling, and a raised circular altar with choir risers and a pipe organ located directly behind it.

CCS Presentation Systems, also located in Scottsdate, was tapped to design and install the new sound reinforcement system as well as significant lighting and video upgrades.

“The sanctuary was originally designed to have the acoustic principles and characteristics of larger cathedrals,” explains Rod Andrewson, who serves as chief engineer at CCS Presentation . “As a result, it’s a highly reverberant space that had been plagued with vocal intelligibility issues for decades.

Over the years a number of acoustical treatments had been applied in an attempt to resolve the problem, with little to no success.”

HOW-TO Sound Workshops™ and TC GROUP AMERICA'S COOK UP GREAT CHURCH SOUND ON LOW HEAT!

When HOW-TO Sound Workshop’s Chief Instructor, Mike Sokol, started out in church sound, the average house of worship audio system often consisted of a few microphones and a basic console – all typically locked away behind a sign reading ‘DO NOT TOUCH’. While house of worship audio systems have become far more complex, the training available for those running them hasn’t kept pace, he says. The HOW-TO Church Sound Workshops aims to change that, one church at a time.

HOW-TO Sound’s approach is very much based on demystifying the details for sound engineers and church volunteers, from helping them establish what equipment they need, to demonstrating outboard gear, such as TC-Helicon’s VoiceLive Rack mic channel and vocal F/X processor that can help make their bands and choirs sound bigger and better. Unsurprisingly, Sokol greatly appreciates it when manufacturers like Lab also pay attention to detail. “I don’t like Phoenix connectors; either the wires pull out of them, or they get stuck, but the E Series have these cool little tabs so you can tie the wires down. It’s little touches like that that show Lab.gruppen really have their act together’.

TANNOY PROVIDES VOCAL INTELLIGIBILIRY AND QUALITY TO SOUTH POINT BAPTIST CHURCH

South Point Baptist Church in Belmont, North Carolina, recently underwent a complete sanctuary redesign that included a new sound system featuring Tannoy QFlex 16 digitally steerable, multi-channel array loudspeakers.

When the church leaders decided to remodel the two-story sanctuary, they opted for a new sound system as well. They tapped Russ Moore, owner of Hames Pro, located in Greenville, North Carolina to design and install the new system. 

The 700-seat contemporary church features a rectangular shaped sanctuary with two-story cathedral ceilings and a large semi-circle raised platform home to the alter, choir and band at the front of the room. Pew seating fans out from the platform and fills the lower level. A major part of the redesign was extending the original rear balcony to cover the length of the side walls creating U-shaped balcony seating that overlooks the sanctuary.

"In order to provide coverage to all of the seating areas without worrying about overlap, we decided to create a system the provided sound to separate levels," explains Moore. "Because QFlex loudspeakers provide a way to control all aspects of their coverage, I could easily use two QFlex 16 loudspeakers for the ground level."

TANNOY QFLEX 16'S SOLVE ACOUSTIC PUZZLE AT OUR LADY OF FATIMA PARISH

The installation of Tannoy QFlex 16's at Seattle WA’s, Our Lady of Fatima, has allowed the church to eradicate difficulties parishioners had hearing the word, while maintaining the parish’s ability to offer historically accurate musical performances.

Since its founding in 1952, there have been many changes at Our Lady of Fatima, perhaps none more dramatic than the construction their current church in 1968. One long overdue change, however, was the replacement of their antiquated sound system. “It was at least thirty years old,” says music director, Matthew Loucks. “Some speakers weren’t functioning and many had been clustered on one side of the sanctuary, so to hear speech elsewhere the system had to be very loud – It was a really lopsided configuration.”
