AKG Microphones Selected To Enhance New AV System At Lake Grove Missionary Baptist Church

When faced with the daunting task of projecting one preacher, six musicians and 87 choral singers to a congregation of over 1,500 parishioners in Memphis, TN, Sound Hill Technologies turned to AKG microphones.

Sound Hill of Holden, LA is the design and integration firm that was charged with creating an immense new sound system for Memphis-based Lake Grove Missionary Baptist Church. They selected a range of 30 AKG wired mics and wireless systems for their ease-of-use, high quality and reliability. The microphones were brought in to compliment the system of JBL speakers and monitors, Crown amplifiers and Soundcraft mixing consoles, also selected for installation in the church.

One of the top priorities in upgrading the church’s AV system was ensuring that each member of the congregation would hear the same, clean tone and high level of speech clarity. It was also important to install equipment that could be run by a volunteer staff, rather than relying on experienced professionals. The AKG microphones were selected for their high quality performance and ease-of-use.

The new audio system had to reach across a room measuring 130 feet across, 115 feet deep and nearly 50 feet from floor to ceiling. To accomplish this, the system design needed to maintain a crisp, clear sound at a high decibel level from input to output.

“We met this challenge with AKG microphones,? said Tim Hill, CEO of Sound Hill Technologies. “Having worked with AKG before, I was confident that we could use a combination of their microphones to meet our specifications, and that the sound would be pristine.?

The installation utilized 30 AKG microphones, including eight AKG D5 vocal mics, and seven AKG CK80 capsules. Additionally, Sound Hill used four AKG GN 155 SET gooseneck modules, three AKG GN 50 ESP lectern mics, three WMS 40 Pro wireless handheld vocal microphones, two AKG C680BL cardioid boundary mics, one WMS Pro presenter lapel mic, one WMS 40 Pro Sports headset and DrumSet II/tour sound package.

Sound Hill Technologies selected this wide array of microphones to cover any foreseeable scenario, and enable perfect sound during performances involving upwards of 100 people including the choir, band and pastor.
