Our latest install proved to be important by making the most of a multi-purpose room in a simplistic way. Reverend Thomas Brackbill from First Presbyterian Church of Alma, approached us looking to update their existing system to a new and simple-to-use system that had great coverage for the room. Their existing system consisted of speakers mounted on poles and a single wireless lapel microphone, which could be moved and used by anyone using the space.
First, our crew had to view the space to determine the best design for the cost and efficiency they were seeking. After we had a plan, we focused on coverage of the room by safely suspending two JBL speakers powered by Crown CDi. We chose the CDi series because of the onboard DSP, in return helping us stay within their budget. The front of house location was established by a rolling Gator Case that housed the Soundcraft mixing console and four channels of Shure wireless microphones. By housing everything in this case, the FOH was kept small to ensure it could be tucked away in a closet or easily moved out of the way for maximum utilization of the room.
This system will serve their needs and is a great upgrade to their multi-purpose room, all while staying with the church’s budget.
