Worx Audio installation at Emmanuel Baptist Stanton, KY

Emmanuel Baptist in Stanton, KY contacted me to replace their speaker system. The system they had been using was a mismatched set of ground stacked speakers. I offered up several options ranging from a mono point source systems to a stereo line array systems. Ultimately the client settled on the WorxAudio X3 fixed line array (http://www.worxaudio.com/products/trueline-x3/) in stereo with the WorxAudio TL218 subwoofers (http://www.worxaudio.com/products/trueline-tl218ss/) installed under the stage. We used a QSC Q-SYS Core 110f (http://www.qsc.com/systems/products/q-sys-platform/products-peripherals-accessories/q-sys-cores/) for system processing. The system provided unbelievable even coverage of the room with less than 3dB of volume change from the front to the back of the room. While testing the system we were able to achieve an 110dB SPL without clipping the system. The client chose to have us limit the system to 95dB as higher sound pressure levels were unnecessary. Emmanuel Baptist had previously purchased a SoundCraft Si Expression 3 (http://www.soundcraft.com/products/si-expression-3) for front-of-house. They were running several wired and wireless in-ear monitors off of the board, so getting the main speakers up in the air freed up a lot of stage real estate. We also provided SurgeX power protection, filtering, and sequencing with the SEQ-1U (http://espsurgex.com/product/sequencers/) and the SX-20NE-RT (http://espsurgex.com/product/branch-circuit/) allowing for single button power on and off and the ability to lock the system out with a key.

Recognition for a recent install

This is a picture of a recent floor box installation I did in Hughes Auditorium at Asbury University using Ace  Backstage Super Pockets. We installed eight of them replacing their old boxes. Ace Backstage tweeted this about the install:

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Saint Patrick

Troparion – Tone 3

Holy Bishop Patrick,
Faithful shepherd of Christ’s royal flock,
You filled Ireland with the radiance of the Gospel:
The mighty strength of the Trinity!
Now that you stand before the Savior,
Pray that He may preserve us in faith and love!

Kontakion – Tone 4

From slavery you escaped to freedom in Christ’s service:
He sent you to deliver Ireland from the devil’s bondage.
You planted the Word of the Gospel in pagan hearts.
In your journeys and hardships you rivaled the Apostle Paul!
Having received the reward for your labors in heaven,
Never cease to pray for the flock you have gathered on earth,
Holy bishop Patrick!

Updating WordPress

I just updated WordPress and it took forever. No three steps here. Lots of uploading, downloading, deleting, overwriting, rinsing, and repeating. Finally I got the page they said I would get and I was able to update to the latest version. I know I do not blog much but come on guys. Well now that I have updated my site, I think I will try to blog a little more often. I know that is not saying much but hey what do you want from me, I am a very busy person, or at least I think I am. Well time to get back to my homework so I can play a little but of NWN2 before bed and a long trip home tomorrow.

Scenes from behind the console 1: Georgian State Dance Company

Well I have decided that everybody out there has all kinds of terrible pictures of concerts and events from their camera phones. So I decided to get in on the action and take some junky pictures with my camera phone from my unique vantage point: The “Front of House” console.

Camera: Motorola ic902 camera phone
Console: Mackie 24-4 VLZ Pro (blech)
Inputs: 11
EQ’s: Sabine GRQ
Amps: QSC PL1.6 & QSC PLX2 3602
Main Speakers: EAW LA460’s
Down Fills: EAW LA212’s
Monitors (4 mixes): EAW LA212’s & EAW Commercial VRM’s

As you can see the sound system was quite minimal and the input list was small, however the band had a very big and good sound. The concert was very entertaining and I would recommend everybody to go see it. I especially liked the sword dance. The show went off without a hitch and the entire cast and crew were wonderful. It is always great when my job allows me to see these kind of events.
