"Helping You Sound Your Best"

East View Christian Church

Normal,  Illinois



EVCC has moved to a new campus about six years ago.  This multipurpose room (gymnasium/youth worship center) is the first addition to an already large facility.  The 3200 member congregation is still growing on the north east corner of Normal.  Designed by AR&D Architects and built by PJ Hoerr, the new addition is a substantial structure built of CMU's and brick.

The church staff includes a full time technical director.  Jordan Audio Consultants worked with the "in-house" technician to prepare system designs that helped to create a systemalogical approach to all the various systems in the building. The auxiliary systems in the building use Allen and Heath consoles, dbx Driverack processors and Crown amplifiers.  The EAW speakers were choosen at the request of the technical director. They worked out exceptionally well.

The system includes four discrete monitor mixes,  a separate sub woofer mix and two mixes for effects.  The 40 input mixing console includes 8 sub groups, 8 mute groups and a full matrix.

Several components were reused from the existing inventory of the congregation including: metal amplifier racks,  effects units, compressors,  microphones, cables, two additional powered monitor speakers, and a pair of Barco video projectors.

The system is pre-wired to add a digital personal monitor system, a third screen and video projector, and more elaborate video switching. Originally four JBL 2226H 15" woofers were being recycled from the pervious gymnasium into new custom built floor monitors.  The new technical director wanted to keep the existing speakers for another purpose so new woofers were incorporated into the custom floor monitors.  The four monitors are "Bunker Busters" from Concert Systems LLC.

Two input / output panels each include 16 microphone inputs, six "Speak On" monitor output jacks,  a BNC video coax output and an RJ45 jack for the future digital personal monitor system.
