Colorado Springs, CO (July 6, 2005)–With the opening of the new 7,500-seat auditorium at New Life Church in Colorado Springs underway, Daryl Porter, chief audio engineer for New Life Church, turned to Aviom, Inc., manufacturer of the A-Net Pro16 Monitor Mixing System, for a monitor system that could handle the church’s large praise band. The 11-piece band features drums, bass, keyboards, electric and acoustic guitars, strings, wind instruments and a choir.
“The dedication ceremony was a big event for us since we were also celebrating our twentieth anniversary,” said Porter. “The band had been using personal monitors on another system, but there were so many limitations. I found Aviom and immediately switched over to their system. The Aviom system is digital, runs on Cat-5 cable and can have an unlimited number of stations. It’s a great piece of gear and does exactly what we need.”
Founded in 1985 by Ted Haggard, president of the 30-million member National Association of Evangelicals, New Life Church is currently the largest church in Colorado. The new facility is home to an 11,000-person congregation and holds four weekend services.
