Video projection is not new, but today it is much better.
There are those think that a one person consulting firm can not manage the consulting of a super church.
Then again, such a firm can do a better job and lower the cost of construction. But who can afford such a service?
Before this project was started, the reverberation was over 4 seconds.
These pillars are hollow and made of Plaster. They were used to I tune the Church.
That provided 60% of the acoustical correction.
Can you see the other acoustical treatments in this room?
Since these pictures were taken, the speakers on each pillar were removed and a cluster was installed. The cluster was a single speaker and it was mounted so that it would not block the view of the fresco for 80% of the seating area. The speaker was finished to look like a hanging light fixture with similar iron work. There are delayed speakers for the Balcony.
Lets have fun with this project.
1 & 2 - these are 2 of the 8 air conditioning and heating units on separate thermostats. The church put all of these units on one control and lowered their energy costs 35%
3 - Token the lighting system. There is only one plug for all of the lights in each group. If you turn these lights full, the pop the circuit breakers
4 - The video projects are in the open. The cooling fans are so loud that the sound system amplifies the noise.
