First Baptist Church
This congregation moved to their
new facilities just in time for Resurrection Sunday 2006. It is a
large, 500 seat multipurpose gymnasium. The permanent stage is built into
the long side of the room. The stage is off center with the room by
about 4' (no one knows exactly why.) The building was enclosed when the
contractor contacted Jordan Audio is assist with the sound system. The
congregation wanted to reuse as much of their existing system as possible.
The system from the old building had some
good electronics, but had inferior speakers. We designed a new system
concept around their Mackie console, QSC amplifier, Rane
equalizer and Sony tape and CD decks. To accommodate the size and
shape of the new room we design a new speaker array with new amplifiers and new
digital processing. The new array consists of three dual woofer
enclosures and with 2" throat bi-radial horns. The two side
enclosures hold dual 10" woofers. The center enclosure
holds dual 12" woofers. The main system is biampiflied.
New wiring was installed for both
microphone lines and all speakers. The church now has two monitor
mixes for their musicians. They will be building a new worship
auditorium in the next few years, but this system will remain in the gym for
Jordan Audio Consultants commissioned the
system just three days prior to the churches first week in the new room --
Easter Sunday 2006.
