Martin Audio OmniLine Solves Acoustical Problems For Third Presbyterian Church

sanctuary1.jpg

Rochester, NY––Located near the prestigious Eastman School of Music, Rochester’s Third Presbyterian is a traditional church in the Gothic style which recently underwent a 10-month, $5.4 million renovation.

The AV Solutions team of Mickey Ames and Lead Tech Bryan Dowd, along with Consultant Tom Kostusiak who designed the sound system and acoustician Robert F. Mahoney, did the installation that included a completely upgraded sanctuary and new sound systems.

Challenges for the project included a modest budget, plus the existing acoustics that were very dry and lacked audible delay because of the square shape of the room and thickly carpeted floors. Plus the church doesn’t have a full time AV staff member, so the system had to run in unattended mix mode most of the time.

In addition, Rochester’s Director of Music Peter duBois, who was involved in the install, wanted the option of running attended services with more

Decatur, GA––When Messenger Media Systems of Covington, Georgia was called in to do the audio for the New Life Church, the primary challenge was providing a powerful system for a spacious sanctuary on a limited budget.
As Senior Systems Engineer Christopher Bragg, puts it, “The client had purchased an old high school which they used for administrative offices and built a large sanctuary behind it.
“It was a 2,000-seat church and they only had $100,000 for the audio system because they’d spent a lot of money up front for conduits and other infrastructure they didn’t end up using.
“Acoustically, the room is difficult. Lots of straight walls, hard surfaces and we didn’t have the budget for acoustic treatment at that point. That was the main difficulty, working on a small budget for a room that size.?
Continuing, Bragg says, “They wanted an aggressive (ie. loud) system for Gospel more
