Midas

In the systematic effort to dismantle another great audio company the parent company of Behringer has purchased Midas. This reminds me of how sad it was when Harman bought Crown in the 90’s. Since the late 80’s conglomerates have been buying and selling brands like they were baseball cards. The Crown Audio today is hardly recognizable from the independent Crown Audio of the 80’s. Crown only produced high quality products. Now, Midas will likely have the same fate.

Rigging Practices #1

Rigging

The scariest thing I have witnessed over the years in the A/V business is improper rigging practices. Incorrect rigging can cause serious injury or death! Even though professionals that are trained in the correct methods and laws should only do rigging, Churches often times will suspend gear themselves.

Speaker Wiring

Speaker wiring: There seems to be a genuine lack of knowledge and understanding of speaker wiring among the church volunteer. A lot of people think you can keep adding speakers to an amplifier as long as you have more wire. Amplifiers have a minimum rated load for the outputs. A typical pro amplifier has a minimum load of around 4 ohms. I hope this article will help people better understand how to properly calculate the load of an amplifier based on the wiring scheme that you choose.

Pendant lighting fixtures are now available in LED versions!

Cathedral Lighting is offering Church Pendant fixtures in a variety of styles with all DMX controlled LED light engines.

Cathedral Lighting LED Pendants

I have been selling and installing lighting systems for 23 years in churches. The one place I would say is the least changed is sanctuary lighting. The pendant fixtures that hang in the sanctuary for general illumination can be some of the ugliest fixtures in the space. I recently was in a church that had 4-1/2 foot tall “Cylinders of Doom”

Subwoofer Specifications: One must know the facts when choosing a good subwoofer. Imagine your sound system is the house and the subwoofers are the foundation. Choose the wrong subs and the whole house could collapse.
