Garland, TX (June 1, 2010)–Aviom A-16II Personal Mixers were recently installed at Arapaho Road Baptist Church in Garland, TX, as part of an audio overhaul to cut down on stage crowding, volume and turnaround time between services.
Holding traditional and contemporary services had been a concern because the church’s schedule provided only 30 minutes between them. Using Aviom A-16II Personal Mixers, users save and recall custom mix presets, allowing both the contemporary and traditional leaders, musicians and engineers to utilize the same stage/audio setup—a move that cut turnaround to 20 minutes.
The church onstage clutter by installing Ace Backstage stage pockets with multiple XLR inputs and RJ45 jacks that hook to Aviom A-16D A-Net Distributors installed in the church’s amp room. The pockets, which house Cat-5 cabling for the stage. Meanwhile, the Aviom system also spurred the Worship Band’s use of personal monitors, eliminating cable clutter and reducing stage volume. The setup now features an Aviom Y1 A-Net Card installed in a Yamaha LS9-32 console, which sends mix feeds from front of house to the A16-D units.
