Houses of Worship
Sound & Vision

St Mungo's Parish Church, Kettleholm, Lockerbie.  The first sound and induction loop systems to be installed in 140 years of the Church's history.  A simple Denon Professional mixer front-end and a discrete installation of RCF full-range loudspeakers.  A Univox X5 perimeter loop system was installed with suitable architectural sensitivity.

St Machar's Cathedral, Old Aberdeen.  A generational change for his 12th Century building included lifting the existing Nave floor and replacing with local, natural stone.  All of the old pews in both the Nave and Chancel were removed and replaced with a modern, more flexible seating plan, including new furniture.  Using stringent RT60 tests, the design included time-aligned Tannoy VLS15 & VLS7 components to compliment the natural acoustic of the building throughout the Nave, Chancel and Choir. A series of AT Pro10 wireless mics (lavalier & handheld) allow a good deal of flexibility for Worship and non-Worship needs.  A totally bespoke system design with all loudspeakers painted in RAL1014 to match stonework and decor.  A new X5 Induction Loop amplifier, and using Ampetronic direct-burial cable, the system encloses the entire Nave area.

Crathie Kirk, Balmoral, Ballater, Aberdeenshire.  A call from the Royal Domestic Chaplain, and a complete sound system re-design and install, replacing a creaky 30-year old system. A time-aligned system using discrete TOA SR-H and Apart line arrays, and complemented with 4 Channels of AT Pro10 wireless mic system allowing good flexibility within the natural acoustic environment.  This was all achieved within 7 days of the order being placed!  A Univox PLS900 replaced an old, under-powered loop driver, and the loop cable shortened and re-routed to allow distortion-free, electro-acoustic performances from the Chancel.

Fenwick Parish Church, East Ayrshire.  The Church Hall is a major community hub, and the requirement was to achieve a Cinema-type experience for the regular "Cinema Nights", as well as serve as an all-round sound reinforcement system for the various local events which the hall hosts.  Achieved using the new HH Tessen Series loudspeakers in a 2.1 configuration, the self-powered sub-woofer being a plug-in-and-go option to create the added woof! when required. Windows were rattled!

Cardonald Parish Church, Glasgow. Phase 2 of the video installation was completed.  4 new side-aisle screens, a PTZ camera and controller, along with a Roland HD vision mixer completed this 3-year upgrade programme.  A separate HD video and audio link was installed to the Waiting and Session rooms for added flexibility.

Coupar Angus Abbey Church, Perthshire.  Induction Loop upgrade with new cable and Univox PLS X5.  Fully compliant, meeting the demands of the revised standard BS:EN 60118-4 2014. Additional wireless microphones. 

The Tinto Parishes, South Lanarkshire.  A Minister in a hurry! - 3 Churches every Sunday, and 3 different radio mic systems.  Solution?  Fit the Minster with an early-morning, 2.4GHz tieclip transmitter, and fit each Church with a 2.4GHz receiver - hit a "pair" button at each venue - Happy Minister now more relaxed on a Sunday!
