Calvary Worship Centre, Surrey, BC. Canada

The acoustical system at Calvary Worship Centre is now about 95% complete. The church hired me back to confirm the acoustical results and to finalize the sound system setup. The Midas Pro2c Mixer and Danley Speaker system are a great match.
This is not the largest church to use this acoustical and sound system combination, but it is the largest church to change their acoustics in less than 30 days. The fastest church repair was done in 7 days in Brentwood, England. The largest Church I have worked on was 6500 seating.
A member of Living Hope Church in Surrey BC where they have been using the same acoustical system for over a year commented with saying Calvary has the same balance of sound as does Living Hope which is a modest 270 seat church. Calvary Worship Centre can seat up to 2000. That is remarkable considering that one place is built as a “proper” church and the other is a converted warehouse and both spaces perform the same. (I was reminded that Living Hope Church thought they already had good acoustics but tried the Solomon system as a short term experiment. The experiment turned it a permanent installation and the congregational singing and worship has never been more exciting.)
A Member of Calvary Worship Centre said, “The sound is far better than I dared hope for this 20,000 sq ft space given my previous church experience in a very similar venue. Also, the total price was less than I expected it might be including your fees and the acoustic treatment.”
As one person mentioned at another church fixed with half round diffusers in Little Rock, Arkansas USA, he said, “you can tell if you have a good room by the number of people singing. Before only about 20% of the audience was singing most of the time and for familiar hymns about 25% were singing. Now it’s about 85% of the audience is singing all the time and you can hear the excitement and power of all those voices ring out.” Imagine that – worship and excitement in the same sentence.
