GOALS FOR A WELL INSTALLED SOUND SYSTEM
• A well designed sound system should make inaudible sound audible, garbled words clear and comfortably project music throughout the entire room.
• A well designed sound system should be heard, not seen.
• A well designed sound system should operate easily and without feedback, distortion, or excessive volume.
• A well installed sound system should amplify the sound in space specific ways. If the sound source is a pulpet, the sound system should enforce the perception the the sound is actually coming from the pulpet, not the ceiling or side walls. If the sound source is a choir, the perception should be that the sound is coming from the choir.
• A well designed sound system has the operator and soundboard in the samespace that the sound is being generated. The operator must be able to hear the result of the sound system to accurately and effictively control the sound.
Over the years of designing, installing and servicing electronic and pipe organs we at Chapel Music and A.E. Schlueter Pipe Organ Company are frequently asked about Church Sound and Video projection systems. The two most common topics today are regarding combining the speaker system for the organ with an existing or new PA System, and placing Video Projection Screens in the location where the organ’s speakers or pipes are installed. Of course there is no “one size fits all solution” to these questions, but in dealing with many of these logistical issues we realize that we offer unique skill sets stemming from our background in traditional church music, as well as the highly technical demands in installing and servicing State-of-the-Art digital Church Organs.
