Grace Church, a large non-denominational house of worship serving the Twin Cities metropolitan area of Minnesota, has completed an upgrade of its audio/video system that incorporates several Furman products. Performed by Audio Logic Systems (www.audiologicprosound.com), the installation included the purchase of six new PL-8 Pro Series II 20 amp power conditioners and the reinstallation of an HDS-16 headphone/audio distribution system and eight accompanying HRM-16 headphone/audio remote mixers for a new Yamaha PM1D monitor desk.
The three-week project involved completely upgrading the front-of-house system, installing a modern replacement and adding a monitor desk to the system. “Grace Church needed cost-effective, reliable power conditioners that would protect its Yamaha PM1D, DM2000 and AT5000 Series wireless system without creating any audio hums,” says Audio Logic Systems’ Jason Kartak, who led the installation. “Furman Sound has a great reputation for reliability and cost-effectiveness, which is why we chose them over other manufacturers for this project.”
According to Dave Keller, executive VP at Furman, “Voltage irregularities are so commonplace in AC power, it’s likely that sooner or later without protection, they would have damaged Grace Church’s sensitive, expensive electronics. In addition, electrical noise would be an obstacle to achieving the level of performance they paid for. Our PL-8 II conditioners filter the noise and provide excellent protection against bad power, while our HDS-16/HRM-16 system will give Grace Church great flexibility in creating custom audio mixes from multiple mics.”
