Client Experience




A growing church, beloved by its members, St. Michael's Church wanted to bring energy and emotion to celebrations of worship, whether over the microphone or from an organ or piano. For this, it needed clear, simple and high-quality systems that would reflect the tone of the church. It required a sound system that was designed to make sure the voice of the church was heard, loud and clear, so the church could sound great, no matter the size of the congregation.


Due to the large size of the church, it relied on four Tannoy VLS30 columns to cover a majority of seats. While the EASE speaker performance was satisfactory, the location and height of its mounts were revised. This was done in coordination with architects and the Alpahtec team who installed the speakers. The coverage was found to be uniform and the sound was crisp and clear for every person in the church.


The combination of AT mics, a Behringer Digital mixer and Tannoy and Turbosound speakers W-power by Labgruppen and Behringer Amos made it optimal and best suited for the budget. Completing EASE before installing the system helped fine tune the system at final stages.

As the performance to size ratio of Tannoy column speakers was found to be excellent, it helped deliver an outstanding performance at the site. An extension of low frequencies translated by Turbosiund Active subs was found to be phenomenal for the venue and matched the column speaker performance.

The confidence we had about the audio plan was due to the professionalism of Zacs and Phils the Audio integration company. It was the careful and dedicated approach from Mr. Manu Philip, the System Integrator, that made everything fast, smooth and possible.
