Doing it right.
A few months ago, we got a call from a pastor about the sound quality in the main worship space. He talked about uneven coverage, uneven sound pressure levels (volume), lots of low-midrange rumble at the podium and a general lack of audio fidelity. He seemed like he was ready for a new sound system.
We asked what he had installed now. Bose 502A. No problem there. Was he using the system controller? Yes. How and where were they installed? In a center cluster, about 5-6' directly above the podium microphone (see below). Uh oh.
This is not how to do it.
Two things stuck out to us. First, the center cluster was low. Of course, the ceiling is low, too, so options were limited.
Low frequency pattern control is a big issue that most don't consider when it comes to a new system. The short story is that...
