Chicago Church chooses Electro-Voice sound

new_mount_pilgrim_baptist_01.jpgAn Electro-Voice sound system has brought a new lease of life to New Mount Baptist Church, which occupies a 100-year old building in Chicago’s West Side. AVI Systems, Inc. completed the system design and installation, balancing state-of-the-art software control with compact, high performance loudspeakers and amplifiers to create a budget-friendly solution. “The church asked me to design a concert sound system rather than a church system,? says Rick Muermann CTS of AVI Systems, Inc. “They have a full band and a lot of audience participation; music is at the heart of their worship style, and they needed a system that could handle a full-on live performance. The sanctuary holds around 500, and the ceilings are about 60-70-feet high. One of the issues was figuring out whether or not to spec a line array. To hang the speakers, we had to climb up above the ceiling on these little 100-year-old walkways. After mapping the room, we found we could cover the entire congregation with just two FRX+ 940 loudspeakers. The walls and ceiling are very ornate, and this provides a nice, streamlined solution that doesn’t compromise the room’s aesthetics. more
