Trust me I work for a church so I understand.

My rationale is: a $100000 spent on community outreach is money better spent for a non-profit then $100000 on a system that makes the room sound different depending on the style of music.

I would seriously ask questions about my membership at a church that will spend that kind of money unless the money was specifically donated for that purpose of course.

Just for reference, $100,000 would be a pretty small "enhancement" system.

They are not cheap.

Truth. The one we are looking at is over $1.2 million, for just the enhancement system.

That's a philosophical question that doesn't really relate to the question of how to improve room acoustics.

I have heard of one in a LARGE space that would probably add at least another "0" to that figure.

No details yet.  I'm not sure if it will happen. It would be interesting, on MANY levels.

My previously unposted response was that any church that can rationalize paying for an artificial acoustics system can also pay property and income taxes, but that's another can o' worms.
