Canfield, OH (June 28, 2016)—The Old North Church in Canfield, OH is actually pretty new—while the congregation is marking its 80th anniversary, its actual church is a modern facility with a 1,000-seat sanctuary, a library, classrooms and more, all tied together with a recently installed loudspeaker system from Community.
Dave Mullane, Old North Church’s tech director, is also the assistant principal at Canfield High School where Custom Integrated Solutions of Youngstown, Ohio (CIS Ohio) had recently installed an audio system using Community loudspeakers. Mullane asked Brian Williams of CIS Ohio to propose a Community loudspeaker system to replace the existing system at Old North Church.
Williams designed a four-segment, exploded cluster system using I Series IP8-1122/66 and IP8-1122/64 loudspeakers to provide coverage and allow a clear path for the church’s three video projectors.
A pair of Community dSPEC226AN DSP processors provide loudspeaker management, delay and equalization. Williams reused the church’s existing under-balcony loudspeakers but says the full-range performance of the I Series allowed him to turn off the existing subwoofers. The church retained its Soundcraft digital mixer and Sennheiser wireless microphones along with its Aviom personal monitoring system and stage monitor loudspeakers.
