Oak Pointe Church Outfitted with Martin Audio

Advanced Audio & Lighting Systems equips sanctuary in Niles, Michigan, with Wavefront Precision Compact line arrays and iK42 amplifiers.

By PSW Staff • June 5, 2018

Advanced Audio & Lighting Systems was initially called in by Oak Pointe Church to evaluate the space and provide acoustic analysis and treatment that would eliminate room anomalies, a process which would eventually lead them to supply a new audio design based on a Martin Audio Wavefront Precision Compact line array solution.

Trent Keeling, a senior design consultant for Advanced Audio, explains that the sanctuary “had significant acoustic issues and the PA system was lacking intelligibility, pattern control, and musicality."                                                                    Read More

Peoria Civic Center Performing Arts Center Upgrades with RCF TTL55-A Line Array

You’ve heard the old adage, “Will it play in Peoria?” It certainly will, thanks to the recent rehabilitation of the Peoria Civic Center Theater.

Northwoods Community Church Case Study: Revamping Reach

Northwoods Community Church has a long history of being innovative in the Peoria, Illinois, area. Originally planted by the Evangelical Mennonite denomination (now called Fellowship of Evangelical Churches or FEC) in 1990, Northwoods modeled its ministry approach after Willow Creek Community Church’s seeker-focused approach. Initially meeting in a variety of temporary venues as a portable church, Northwoods acquired 40 acres of land in the northern part of Peoria in 1991 for $135,000, paying cash through an eight-week capital campaign.                                                                                                                                                      Read More
