JBL CBT Speakers

St. Barnabas Episcopal Church Sound System

System Requirements

St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, located in Wilmington Delaware, was in need of a new sound system.  After seeing the JBL CBT columns in other projects, we were contacted for a design.

The existing 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 created a layout using the JBL CBT column speakers.  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


Result

The new sound system has been a huge improvement and allows the entire congregation to hear clearly from any seat.  The JBL CBTs blend in well and provide even coverage.  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.

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
    • Furman Power Conditioner and Sequencer

Result

The new sound system has been a huge improvement.  The Pastor is easily heard and the choir sounds natural.  The various modes on the mixer simplify operation.

Saint Marks Church Philadelphia Sound System

Saint Mark’s Church Philadelphia Sound System

System Requirements

Saint Mark’s Church, a historic Church in Philadelphia, needed several upgrades to their sound system.  An older analog mixer and VHF wireless microphones were no longer reliable and needed to be replaced.

System Design

We replaced the analog mixer and replaced it with a Rane digital signal processor (DSP) that features a custom control interface on a wall-mounted touch screen.  This allows any operator a simple way to control the system, and select from a preset.  For the wireless system, we chose Shure QLX-D wireless which provides digital, transparent audio and was a perfect choice for the crowded RF environment of Philadelphia.


Result

The upgrades provide simplified control with reliable wireless performance.
