Simple or complicated PA systems require the appropriate type of loudspeaker, to maximise their benefit.
Column loudspeakers offer excellent speech quality and are often favoured by architects in Churches, as the physical profile mixes well with the vertical lines of windows and stonework.
However, due to the width of the column loudspeaker and the size of the loudspeaker units fitted, they have frequency limitations, if music is to be introduced into the system.
We are therefore tending to phase out column loudspeakers, with the exception of the latest design from JBL, which uses Constant Bandwidth Technology to attain remarkable quality levels, within a narrow profile.
Many churches, which include the use of live instruments in their service, prefer to fit monitor type loudspeakers as these reproduce the lower and higher frequency sounds more faithfully. The size of these loudspeakers is such, that they can be mounted at capitol height on stone columns and even painted to match the surrounding stonework.
Larger numbers of smaller loudspeakers can be less intrusive both visually and audibly. We use the JBL Control range of monitor loudspeakers extensively.
Offices and public buildings often require loudspeakers to be mounted discreetly and there is now an extensive range of speech and speech/music ceiling loudspeaker available, which suit these situations. When music quality reproduction is required, we fit the JBL ceiling loudspeaker, which has excellent reproductive characteristics and can be supplemented with a discreet bass speaker.
Most loudspeakers are available in black and white, or can be painted to suit.
