The Allen & Heath system is being used in conjunction with EAW AX Series speakers and Aviom in-ear systems, and CD/DVD/computer audio inputs. System training was provided by Signature partner/director Sterling Coleman.
"We knew we had a huge learning curve with all the new equipment but, surprisingly, the mixing system was probably the easiest transition for us," said the worship facility's pastor, Michael Bell. "Sterling's an amazing guy; here was a brand new console and he seemed to know it like the back of his hand. I can't say enough about all the things he did to make this project a success - everything from training to troubleshooting, audio, video and electrical. He's so much more than an installation guy."
In particular, the system allows the church to handle large ensembles and touring acts with ease.
"In the past, we haven't really had the equipment to host any big-name bands. But with full theatrical lights and a new sound system, all that has changed," noted Bell.
