Oklahoma City, OK (February 23, 2004)–Spectrum Design Group has built its reputation largely around providing multimedia, audio and lighting systems for houses of worship. The company was established in 1992 by founder and president Thomas Johnson, a devout Christian and former musician with considerable touring experience. Johnson says his company understands the uniqueness and demands of Christian Worship services, and that it has brought that knowledge to a new generation of Churches.
Some of the company’s installs include the Crossroads Church in Vancouver, WA, the Bethany First Church of the Nazarene in Oklahoma City, and Life Church in Mission Viejo, CA, all of which offer morning services that are liturgical in nature while afternoon and evening services are of a very contemporary Rock and Roll format.
Another thing that those churches have in common is that they all now make use of Crest Audio X-VCA, X-8 and V-12 mixing consoles to help evangelize the Word. In fact, from 1999 through 2002, Spectrum Design Group led the nation in the sales of Crest Audio V-12 mixing consoles. Crossroads Church owns a Crest Audio V-12 46×6 console with a 28-input sidecar at the FOH mix position and a Crest Audio Century LMx 52×22 console is utilized for monitors. Meanwhile, the Bethany First Church of the Nazarene makes use of a V-12 48×4 with a 28-input sidecar at the FOH position. Finally, the Life Church makes use of a V-12 48×4 console at the FOH position.
Johnson explained, “The advanced multimedia-based services of today must be supported on a rock solid foundation of quality audio performance, otherwise the service’s Message will be compromised. When you factor in the V-12’s feature-rich design compared to its price point, the V-12 actually delivers more benefits at much higher level of quality. I consider the V-12 to be the finest analog console ever conceived and I would never compromise the audio backbone of my clients Worship services to any other desk.”
