Are you moving into an existing building, or are you building from the ground up? If it's a new build, your architect would likely have some recommendations of a consultant, or an integrator in your area that has a good reputation. Last thing, be sure to pay attention to acoustic treatment, and the acoustic properties of your new space. Getting the room sounding right before you put the PA in will make a huge difference in your overall satisfaction of the new digs.

FA space that has favorable acoustics for your typical program material will make it easier and cheaper to design and install the sound system, and will make it far, far easier to operate. It will be more enjoyable for your performers and your audience.
Good Morning,My church has started the process of moving to a larger facility. I'm trying to do things right by hiring an audio professional to help with system design.~400 membersNeed complete new audio system from IO/Mixer/Amps/Speakers for a large auditorium with balcony and vaulted ceilings.Contemporary worship with need for loud sound with good headroom and heavy LF for youth events.In the process of settling on scope and budget, the consultant offered to provide system tuning for free if we purchased a BiAmp Nexia / Tesira Forte (DSP) from them for ~$2,300. While the exact model wasn't specified in the scope document, this whole line of products seems to be for smaller classrooms and teleconferencing? I don't know much about the DSP hardware world, the amps and mixer we use today have provided enough processing for us. Is this a good recommendation, or are we in the wrong park?Also, what should I expect for consulting prices for loudspeaker recommendation including model numbers/quantity/fly points/ and mounting angles/heights with Power and infrastructure requirements of the recommended design? Cost per hour? Percentage of project total? This is my first time going through this and want to make sure everything is tracking properly.Thanks!
Unlike some others, I'm not convinced that a $2,300 DSP is overkill for a 400-seat room, depending on what the PA is.But that's the thing - trying to sell you a DSP before you decide on a PA is putting the cart before the horse and is a serious red flag, in my opinion.I have a feeling I may know who this consultant is...
I've got a LG Lake LM44 for FOH a Dolby Lake 8x8 for monitors in a local 250 cap room. It's a bit of a luxury, but perfectly appropriate and costs way more than 2,300! This could be totally reasonable, or not, I wouldn't want to say just based on '400 seats'.
I'm talking with several other companies now which is helping me sort through the various options. Thanks for everyone's wiliness to help.The room will seat 600 once the balcony is opened. Note, the balcony was out of scope for the initial discussion with this consultant, but now we are approved to do it all at once.The stage will be extended out, and the first 2 or 3 rows will be removed. (photo attached of current configuration). I'm a bit confused by the connections on the back of the BiAmp Nexia / Tesira Forte, and by reading the user manual for each of the models. Is this for live sound or teleconferencing? How would I connect it up without using Dante? The LM44 you mentioned at least has XLR connections. Like I said, I'm new to hardware DSP, so I might be missing something here.Dustin
That said, if you want 3 limiters in a row for the Ivan Beaver (Tm) method of speaker protection, that's no problem. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
