Cover of Church Sound magazine sound installation
« on: April 26, 2023, 04:57:38 PM »

I get these emails monthly from live and church sound magazines

The cover of church sound has a pic of a beautiful church with a nice pipe organ. Check out the speaker install. I don't know how it sounds but visually... don't those boxes come in white and why so many?

Black color - most likely those particular ones don't come in white, I'm not positive the make/model.  Otherwise it's likely a glaring fail.  Sometimes a church has a white ceiling that they're going to remove (drop tile grid) or replace and black it out, as part of a later phase, so they go with black speakers in anticipation.  Usually it's either simply a fail or no white color option. 

Why so many?  It's an immersive system, like L'ISA or SoundScape, thus requires 5+ hangs plus fills.  They also put the subs in the air, which is great - even though they're visually obvious.

Yeah, because the Almighty can't communicate without immersion... /snark and satire

And someone has to explain to me how that isn't one giant comb-filter generator?

If you send the exact same signal to everything then it would be.  Since this is a L-ISA system Id assume that a not insignificant amount of time has been put into addressing this issue.  Its not like L-Acoustics is some company with a poor or no reputation with large scale live sound.  Of course the system designer/installer/operator can all find ways to thwart the best engineering.

L'Acoustics comes in any RAL color you want, including the rigging and grille fabric. There is a setup charge for each color.
