A Church on this site dates back to the 15th century. A fire in the late 1800’s destroyed the church and it was rebuilt soon after. You would not know that today with the increasing popularity and the fantastic atmosphere it holds now with improved audio for everyone thanks.
The Installation Brief
A simple sound system that could accommodate the taking of the service and music that is mainly supplied by CD’s or other audio sources, although the pa system needed to cope with the organ’s sound within the church also. Due to the building being listed, holes for speaker brackets were not allowed to be drilled which meant we had to take a different approach to this church av install.
We chose a quantity of Apart Audio OVO5 wall mounted loudspeakers in white as a suitable speaker to cover the general requirements. Because we were unable to drill into the walls, we placed the speakers securely on the deep window ledges around the church. We used the low impedance setting on these and powered them with a Citronic PL power amplifier. We used an Adastra Line Mixer with Blue Tooth capability, an Auxilliary input on the front panel, plus extra Aux inputs and microphone or line inputs on the rear. The microphone duties were taken care of by installing a Shure BLX14 lapel microphone system. This is a wireless mic system enabling freedom of movement. A wired microphone and stand was also required. Again, this was a Shure PGA58 wired microphone which has an On/Off switch.
”We were very pleased with the professionalism of Music Gear Installations from the first point of contact and survey to the installation of the audio system in our village church. The work was beautifully done and I would highly recommend the companyDr. Ruth RocheChurch Warden
