New York (October 16, 2006)–If there’s anyone in the pro audio business who doesn’t think that the house of worship market is exploding, they probably ought to talk to Langston Holland, who founded Soundscapes almost three years ago. Located in Pace, FL, just outside of Pensacola, the regional sound production company services the church market across the southeastern U.S.
Langston Holland, owner of regional touring company, Soundscapes, which recently bought Danley Sound Labs subs.”About 95-percent of our work is done with churches, Christian concerts and Christian youth outreach events,” Holland reported. After reading about Danley Sound Labs, founded by audio pioneer Tom Danley, online, Holland contacted the company to learn more about their boxes, and DSL responded by providing two TH-115 subwoofers to demo. He and another Soundscapes colleague took the TH-115s and two of his other subs outside for measuring and listening tests. “I appreciated the conservative specifications on the Danley gear. What I measured was what was on the spec sheet. Other manufacturer’s specs are often quite optimistic,” Holland added.
After hearing the TH-115s, Holland purchased eight of them to replace his current subs. The first real-world test of his new subs was at the weeklong “Branded by Fire” youth conference of Hearts Ablaze, a ministry of Brownsville Assembly, at the Pensacola Civic Center. The program included aggressive rock, speech and high-energy praise in a 10,000-seat venue. A half house setup was used for the 3,000 attendees. To cover the space, Holland originally set up a total of 10 TH-115s–his eight plus the two demo subs–but downsized to six since once he discovered that would provide more than enough power. He added: “During rehearsals, I experimented with just four of the Danley subs for the entire venue. Amazingly, it worked quite well, but I didn’t want to drive them at those levels all week. These subs are extremely impressive.”
