System Requirements

St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, located in Wilmington Delaware, was in need of a new sound system to provide even and intelligible sound for three sections of seating, as well as for the choir.

The prior system was comprised of older loudspeakers and was put together over many years.  Aside from the improvement of sound quality, the Church needed new choir and instrument microphones, as well as an upgrade to an easy-to-use digital mixer console.

System Design

Our design team laid out the Church and determined that JBL’s CBT columns would be the best solution for the layout and aesthetic concerns.  After a model was created for a proof of concept, our install team implemented the new system.

Equipment list:

JBL CBT 70J-1 line array columns

JBL JRx218 subwoofers

Renkus-Heinz CX41 compact loudspeakers for choir monitors

Crown XTI-series amplifiers

Allen & Heath QU-24 digital mixing console

Shure BLX-R wireless microphones

Audix MicroBoom choir microphones


The new sound system has been a huge improvement and allows the entire congregation to hear clearly from any seat.  The digital mixing console has added some useful features for the volunteers who operate it, as well as presets to easily recall settings for various services.
