Q: Our church needs a new Sound System - what's the most important thing to look for?
A: Intelligibility. For a Sound System to work well, it must be designed to provide speech intelligibility. A listener in any seat must be able to clearly understand what is being said. Sound Systems in churches should be designed and installed for the audio reinforcement of the spoken word. Delivering a clear message is key.
Q: Can a Sound System be purchased in 'stages'?
A: It depends. If you have a Sound System that provides clear, intelligible, evenly distributed sound to all listeners in the facility and you simply want to add functions to your system, you can purchase 'add-ons' to your system as funds become available. However, if your objective is to replace an inadequate sound system because your system does function correctly, it may not make sense to try to break it up into 'stages'.
