Church leaders needed to upgrade the existing audio system and speaker placement at New Life Presbyterian Church in Fruitland Park, Florida; because audio from the system could not be heard in the first three rows of the sanctuary. The open ceiling and large empty area behind the pulpit also caused clarity of sound issues as well. After looking at several AV company’s bid proposals, the job went to SpaceCoast AV Communications. A particular challenge was the open ceiling and large open space behind the pulpit which caused serious acoustic clarity problems.
The Church wanted to replace the existing Bose speaker array in the front of the church with a solution that would allow the sound to be directed towards the front three pews while still providing excellent sound quality throughout the sanctuary. In addition the church needed to eliminate the echo and reverberation in the sanctuary while remaining within budget constraints.
Minimizing Labor and Installation Costs
Another benefit of SpaceCoast AV Communications’ choice of speakers was the ease of installation. Trouble-free wiring options, durable design and mounting hardware engineered for any open-ceiling height resulted in cost savings for the church.
SpaceCoast AV Communications chose the JBL line of products for New Life Presbyterian.
