    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.

Test Room Results

Posted by jdbsound on September 4, 2014


The test room has been a great success.   We are getting meaningful results down to 100 hertz which is the limitation of the test speaker.  Hope to get a subwoofer for lower frequency testing.  In the meantime,  had a worship space with a problem at 230 hertz.  Found a pattern that will add an extra 30dB dip at 230 hertz on top of a general 20dB dip from 100 to 600 hertz.

At another church, there was a peak of 25dB between 800 to 1200 hertz.  Hope to have a pattern to solve this problem soon.  It shouldn’t take more than a week to figure out such a pattern.  I will keep you posted.
