Axia Concepts' Bryan Cole making adjustments at the Jubilee Christian Center's mix position.San Jose, CA (December 5, 2007)--San Jose's Jubilee Christian Center recently upgraded its audio capabilities in its Jubilee Urgency teen center, including the purchase of wireless MiPro personal monitor systems. Locally based Axia Concepts, Inc., a design/build firm that specializes in servicing the A/V requirements of small to medium sized churches, handled the upgrade effort.
The project involved enhancements to the FOH mix position, upgraded amplification, as well as resolving the praise band's monitoring issues. The monitoring segment was accomplished by integrating MiPro MI808T/R wireless personal monitoring systems into the church's sound reinforcement system.
Axia Concepts owner Bryan Cole discussed his approach to resolving the monitoring situation: "In the case of this particular venue, which employs a vibrant, contemporary approach to its services that can best be described as rock worship style, replacing the existing floor monitors used by the praise band was essential, as its volume level further contributed to the room's challenging acoustics. This church definitely likes to rock out, and the sound pressure level is right up there with everyone's enthusiasm. The praise band's floor monitors increased the volume on stage and created additional acoustic reflections-reducing audio clarity in the process. The solution was to reduce the stage volume by equipping the musicians with the MiPro personal monitors."
Depending upon the service, the praise band varies in size from four to seven musicians. As a result, Jubilee Christian Center's wireless monitoring system consists of seven MiPro MI808T/R units. "When they were first introduced, I compared the MiPro system to that of a well known competitor. After careful evaluation, I discovered no audible difference between the two brands, and as a true diversity system, the MiPro experienced no dropouts. Considering the MiPro MI808 was half the price of the competing equipment, I was impressed. The MiPro system delivers great performance with equally impressive value--and I've used it successfully on numerous projects."
