(HOUSE OF WORSHIP)
Built in 1996, the sanctuary's acoustics needed to be corrected for modern worship. We created a new acoustic design that lowered reflective energy and controlled unwanted reverberation.
Desire: Correct venue's acoustics to allow for modern worship with great sound in every seat.
Along with acoustics, we integrated a DiGiCo Quantum 225, Klang immersive in-ear monitoring system, and new truss design for lighting.
We used a series of passive and adaptive acoustic panels that can be applied to existing spaces to improve the sound of rooms through a combination of absorption or diffusion. Paired with the right layout design, these panels make an instant impact.
On Sunday mornings, Good Shepherd welcomes people from all walks of life to their two worship services. While they have talented worship team members and technical production team, their audio system struggled to provide a balanced, even audio experience. After trying several other solutions, Good Shepherd approached WAVE to fix the acoustics in their room.
With a venue built in 1996 and holding 700 people, only minor adjustments were needed to make an incredible change and impact. We focused on an acoustic design that would create minimal visual and material changes.
One of the driving factors for the acoustic design was to improve vocal clarity in the room, during both the musical portion and preaching. We used Fulcrum-Immersive's Hybrid Acoustic Series panels to provide excellent speech-band diffusion and broadband sound absorption. Combined with our acoustical design, the result was a natural balanced room, even with the equipment turned off. This improved aural connectivity between participants, while still controlling room reverberation: the congregation could hear each other sing.
