If sight lines with a center cluster on stands are an issue, how do you plan to address the basketball hoop that's smack dab in the middle of the end wall?

You could take a different approach by putting the screen to one side of the hoop, your pulpit (or just the preacher) to the other side, and your cluster directly under the hoop.



There's a controller on the wall.  Press the button or turn the key and the hoop/backboard assembly is rotated up and out of the way......

As Dick stated, all 6 goals folds all the way up to the ceiling out of the way.

Just an update: We finally got the KW152's in (The 181's are still on the way). I set them up in the gym like they would be for the service on stands about 5 ft up. I left the EQ untouched and played some contemporary music like what would be played  on a typical Sunday at a typical volume level. I walked around the gym to check for coverage and I must say they were pretty clear throughout the entire listening area. I did notice that I lost some volume at the far end of the gym but I was expecting that. Also, I noticed more low end about 10ft back in the center where the coverage of the 2 speakers met. It wasn't overwhelming but it was more than anywhere else in the gym. I am thoroughly impressed with how clear the KW's sound even playing a compressed MP3 from an ipod. I'm curious to see what the whole system will sound like when I get the subs in. Any suggestions or feedback as to what I am hearing??

Thanks

Sound like a 'power alley' issue, http://www.prosoundweb.com/article/in_search_of_the_power_al ley/.

Very interesting article. I will take a lot of this to mind when I get the subs in because I was planning on pole mounting the 152's on the 181's but I might change that now. We have a 2ft stage so putting the 2 subs in the center is not impossible. That'll definitely be something to play around with.
