Aviom Inc. was selected to enhance the sound system at 30,000-member Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, the largest church in the U.S. Lakewood’s audio technology company, Audio Analysts, based in Colorado Springs, Colo., installed several AN-16i input modules and AN-16o output modules (pictured) in addition to multiple Pro16 personal mixers for the worship team.
“Aviom’s bandwidth is excellent,” states Joe Caruso, senior audio engineer for Audio Analysts. “It’s easy to use and [it] guarantees an accurate performance. We tested it against other snakes and listened to the bandwidth for any concern in regards to audio degradation and there is none.”
Caruso installed two Aviom AN-16i input modules and two AN-16o output modules to amplify the sound in the newly renovated church. Both AN-16i modules are set up in the monitor room above two Aviom 16D Pro Output modules. Eight 12-input sub-snakes have the ability to feed from the monitor room to anywhere on the stage or orchestra pit.
“Lakewood was using the Aviom system for monitoring in its old sanctuary and was very pleased with it,” says Caruso. “We added additional units for this install to achieve a 16-channel mix for musicians and one for vocalists.”
