AVG was challenged with providing quality sound within the octagonal shaped sanctuary with a centrally located altar—a very challenging environment from an acoustic perspective. Based on our experience and acoustical modeling, a design was produced which suspended the custom-painted loudspeakers from overhead structure. The speakers were aimed outward and downward to support the “in-the-round” layout. Extensive use of wireless microphones helps keep visible cabling to a minimum. The soundboard and other audio components are concealed and secured within a semi-custom roll-top desk. The platform area is open and uncluttered by cables while receiving the full benefit of sound reinforcement.
