DFX completed this automated system installation in early 2012.
Originally, the chapel had a significant amount of existing equipment in good working order, provided by another company. However, our design team determined that reuse of the existing equipment was not recommended; the existing loudspeakers had a conical/round wave guide, which is made to disperse audio in a circular pattern and is commonly used in outdoor and open environments. The existing equipment caused each audience member to hear the same sound up to 10 different times, ultimately resulting in an unpleasant listening experience. Proper acoustics in a house of worship call for a much more controlled and focused dispersion pattern, allowing our design engineers to focus the output of a speaker to a very specific part of the audience.
