Missions sound system: Part II
« on: February 04, 2008, 01:14:52 pm »

HI all,
last year my church bought a system for our missions work.  We ended up purchasing a JBL mrx system (1 top/1sub/side), along with qsc amps, and some other goodies for eq and such. Long story short, we ended up performing in a huge, long gymnasium with just our system.  Can anyone give some suggestions as to what we can add to our system that would help cover a larger area?  All i can think of is adding more speakers/subs and amps and build a ground stack of some sort.

We will have no option to rent (such rural areas).  What kind of speaker setup could be suggested to at least fill some more space in this kind of setting.  Unfortunately we have no idea of the size of the room we will be going to again this year.  Most people in our country dont have easy access to computers and internet so even asking for someone to take pictures of the future venues and sending them to us is out of the question.  We are limited to what we can buy here and bring there.

Any suggestions would help.  Thank again!

MRX is good stuff(for what it is), but I fear you are asking the MRX to do a Vartec line arrays job. On a budget and integrating your existing system I would suggest atleast moving up to SRX  in delay rings and getting a capable DSP to put it all together may be the most cost effective approach. Use the MRX as the last Delay ring. It is not ideal, but it what is called a distributed system.  It would do much better than trying to get it all done from the front with MRX. The MRX are not meant to reach out that far.

Gary's right,

Big, echo-prone rooms like gyms and stadiums are better off with delay speakers or tight-focus (line-arrays).

A properly setup delay system will help tremendously in bringing the clarity of the spoken word to the far reaches of the room.

BTW, what country is that?
