Our senior sound engineer has over 30 years experience operating and installing church sound systems, and trains church members to operate their own churches sound systems.
Based in Bromsgrove Worcestershire, We have previously helped churches with the following requirements:
- Choosing the correct microphones
- Training volunteers in using their churches sound system
- Problem diagnosis and resolution with existing sound systems
- Hearing Loop Installation and repair
- Sound system design and installation
- Church Audio Visual Systems
Church sound systems take many forms, from sound reinforcement systems to complete audio visual systems.
Church buildings also vary and include traditional church or chapel designs, modern buildings designed with amplification in mind, and school halls or converted industrial units.
Church Sound System Installation
MPB Sound and Light provide a complete sound system installation service.This includes
- A site visit and sound system proposal
- Sourcing and installation of equipment
- Provision of training for your operators or church wardens in how to use the sound system
In order to better understand your requirements we prefer to meet you on-site at the church to discuss the requirements for your church sound system.
We will discuss the options available and an overview of how we can meet your requirements, and any restrictions that might apply in listed buildings etc. If there are any options which we are aware of that might benefit your congregation then these will also be discussed with you.
Then the formal detailed proposal will be written by our engineers and provided to you for consideration.
Once you have accepted our installation proposal a target date for installation of your church sound system can be agreed.
We recognise that unexpected funerals and regular commitments can alter the actual days available for installation, and therefore we try to be as flexible as possible
At least one training session will be provided as part of our installation service, additional later training sessions for new operators can be arranged if required for an additional fee
How long will it take?
- Phase 1 is putting cables and speakers in place.
- Phase 2 is equipment installation and testing.
- Phase 3 is when fine tuning and training takes place.
The process of laying and routing sound cables in church buildings is very time consuming. It makes sense to lay cables for extra microphones, projectors and audio monitors at the same time as your church sound system installation. Even if they are not going to be used right now.
The sound system installation can take from a few days to a few weeks depending on the size of church.
We normally ask for a week to complete an installation. During this time it may be necessary to bring in scaffolding or other access equipment.
There will be times where access by the public will be limited for health and safety reasons.
The image below shows a top of the range column speaker. We recommend speakers similar to these for most of our church speaker systems.
All our installation work is backed by a 12 month guarantee. If equipment fails within 28 days then it will be replaced with a new item. Within 28 days we would carry out the replacement free of charge
If equipment fails within 12 months then it will be replaced under manufacturers warranty. A charge for labour or transport may be made.
If the manufacturer can prove that the damage was caused wilful neglect or improper use of the equipment, a repair/replacement charge may apply, particularly in the case of damaged speakers.
During the settling in period we will be available to answer your questions and give advice. We can also come back and meet you free of charge, subject to other commitments at the time.
If you would like regular maintenance and checks carried out we would be pleased to discuss this with you and offer you a maintenance proposal
