Project Description

Precision Calibrated Audio at St. Laurence Catholic Church

LD Systems joined forces with HFP Acoustical in Houston,Texas for the sound system installation of the loudspeaker sound system in the St. Laurence Catholic Church located in Sugar Land. The church is furnished with glass and stone surfaces, but this visually striking sanctuary also carried the potential of jumbling words and music in multiple uncontrolled reflections. Fortunately, discreet acoustical treatments work hand-in-hand with a precision-calibrated Meyer Sound audio system to provide markedly improved clarity along with a greater sense of intimacy than ever before.

The full range speaker system is anchored by two center arrays of Meyer Sound M1D line array loudspeakers with seven cabinets each. A single M1D-Sub subwoofer is placed atop the main array at the rear and two M1D-Sub subwoofers are positioned over the delayed array at the front. Also included are MM4 front fills, Meyer CQ and UPM speakers, and a Yamaha M7CL console. A BSS DSP processor provides signal distribution and processing throughout the sanctuary and peripheral speaker systems. All main system loudspeakers driven and precisely timed by a Galileo loudspeaker management system. The Meyer Sound system also provides reinforcement for a wide variety of music styles, including a simple cantor and pianist, an up-tempo celebration with full rhythm section, and a large choir of about forty voices.

Mary Thompson, the music director at St. Laurence comments, “The system picks up everything, the sound with music has been superb, and the spoken word is crystal clear.” St. Laurence Catholic Church is another example of LD Systems top notch sound system installation services perfect for leading audio design consultants in the House Of Worship industry.
