    Churches are the most complicated spaces to tame. There are no short cuts to church sound. The information presented here just scratches the surface of how large rooms have layers of sound that creates either constructive or destructive reflections and energy management. Most of the information here is based on years of experience and thousands of hours studying, research and testing. Every church can have great acoustics and worship experience. Knowledge has taught us that whenever aesthetics is chosen over performance, the congregation loses out. Whenever worship space performance outweighs the aesthetics, everyone benefits.

Acoustical Windows

Posted by jdbsound on May 25, 2012


Windows inside of a worship area can be an acoustical hazard.  Standing waves, echoes and bass problems are just a few of the ways large windows in a worship area create problems.  Turning plain ordinary expensive windows into high performance acoustical windows is brilliant and they cost less.  It does require more advance planning.

In this example the windows provide and added benefit.  Now there is fixed seating in the foyer – a minor detail many churches leave out – considering the amount of time some people like to fellowship in a church foyer.
