St. John's Baptist Church Sound System

St. John’s Baptist Church Sound System

System Requirements

St. John’s Baptist Church in Ewing, NJ needed a new sound system that would enhance the coverage and quality of audio in the sanctuary.  Their existing system was comprised of two DJ loudspeakers mounted on the wall with an older analog mixing console.


System Design

Using EASE Focus, we created a sound system layout with Community’s I-Series loudspeakers.  The proof of concept showed we could get even coverage front to back, and side to side.  We then provided an on-site demo and let the congregation hear the proposed loudspeakers.

Featured Equipment:

    • Community Professional Loudspeakers I-Series
    • Community ALC-1604 Amplifiers
    • QSC TouchMix30 Digital Mixer
    • Shure BLX-R Wireless Microphones

Wall Intermediate School Auditorium Sound System

Wall Intermediate School Auditorium Sound System

System Requirements

The existing sound system in the Wall Intermediate School’s auditorium lacked coverage and clarity, and due to the position of the existing loudspeakers being over the stage, there was an issue of feedback.  Additionally, the controls were located on stage so there was no way of mixing the sound from within the audience area.

The new system had to cover the seats, which are laid out in a 180 degree, raked circle.  Additionally, controls needed to be in the back of the auditorium with additional connectivity.


System Design

Using EASE Focus, we designed a QSC-based loudspeaker system utilizing AD-S12 cabinets.  An AD-S8 was added as a foldback monitor for the stage.

Featured Equipment:

  • QSC AD-12 loudspeakers for the audience seating.
  • QSC AD-S8 loudspeaker as a foldback monitor for the stage.
