Solving Intelligibility Issues with Bose RoomMatch
House of Worship
A sanctuary is a place to come together in fellowship. When congregants are unable to hear the service due to the sound from the audio system not reaching the entire sanctuary, it’s a major problem.
That was the issue that plaguing Ginghamsburg Church. Due to the asymmetrical shape of the space, the sound distribution was less than desirable, despite being equipped with proficient audio gear.
New Era Technology engineering team immediately began to research options and decided that the Bose RoomMatch line-array system offered the best audio coverage. RoomMatch ensured that audio distribution within the sanctuary was the same for everyone, from the front row to the very back of the balcony.
“There are so many different amp and cabinet configurations available with the Bose RoomMatch system that it allowed for a ton of flexibility.”
Cody Ramey, New Era – Midwest’s Executive for Ginghamsburg Church explained, “There are so many different amp and cabinet configurations available with the Bose RoomMatch system that it allowed for a ton of flexibility. It was also appealing to us because of the excellent craftsmanship and low failure rate that the product line is known for.”
The flexibility of the RoomMatch equipment configurations, coupled with its ability to work well in both spoken word and live music applications, made it the clear leader in the audio system design for the church.
“We didn’t even start talking about what equipment we would put in; we talked about ‘What do I want it to do?…”
Chris Benge, Technical and Sound Engineer at Ginghamsburg Church, has seen excellent results with the audio installation, a fact that he credits to Live AV’s focused design process and commitment to the church’s requirements for the sanctuary.
“We didn’t even start talking about what equipment we would put in; we talked about, “What do I want it to do?” New Era would be my first call. It’s been a great process,” Chris said.
