Feedback, drop-outs and poor sound quality can interfere with an amazing worship experience. These problems become especially frustrating when you’ve spent thousands on audio equipment and it’s not working properly.

What to do? Thankfully, many common problems can be easily diagnosed and fixed. Before you invest more in expensive consultants, contractors or additional equipment, call us for a Check-Up.

Our technicians will come to your church, evaluate your equipment, and run some tests. We’ll fix whatever we can during our visit. If we can’t eliminate your problems right away, we’ll propose a comprehensive treatment plan.

Think of it like a house call from your doctor – a Check-Up from Church Audio Video puts your sound system on the road to recovery.

Modern audio technology is light years ahead of where it was even 10 years ago, and it’s becoming more sophisticated every day. A solid grasp on the principles of mixing, acoustics and signal flow is essential to properly run even the most basic sound systems, and ongoing education is needed to master the newer, more advanced concepts.

You’ve invested thousands in audio equipment – now it’s time to make sure your tech team has the knowledge and confidence to operate it correctly. Start by scheduling an on-site Train-Up session with Church Audio Video. We’ll educate your team on the fundamentals of church sound systems, and then train you at your facility on your equipment. If your team already knows the basics, we can help advanced users learn how to configure and use a specific piece of gear, like a digital console or networked DSP processor. Our technicians are well-versed in the latest innovations from over over 400 top brands.

Sophisticated equipment isn’t enough – proper understanding is the key to maximizing its potential. Trained and confident system operators can make all the difference in the sounds of your facility.

Symptoms

  • Signal drops or other problems during your services that are due to operator error
  • Volunteers operating your sound system that may have some experience running sound, but no professional training
  • New equipment that nobody knows how to operate nor has the time to research
  • Constant turnover on your tech team

What to Expect

  • Phone/email assessment of your current configuration
  • Classroom-style course for all system operators and at least 2 hours of hands-on personal training at your facility administered by a Church Audio Video technician
  • Training curriculum documentation including textbook and other learning tools
  • DVD recording of your customized training

Reducing cost through collaboration

Contract jobs are typically all-or-nothing. At CAV, we recognize that church members are often willing and able to assist, and often have the talent necessary to fully handle some stage of the project. We’re happy to work alongside them to realize your ministry’s vision. Whether you hire Church Audio Video to build your entire system or you enlist staff and volunteers to help, we’ll work with you every step of the way. Your resulting system is the product of a truly collaborative effort. We design the systems we create beginning to end, but there are three specific ways talent within your church can reduce the cost of your system.

Electrical: For Licensed Electricians

Most new systems are going to require new electrical work running to specific places with specific requirements. If you have a licensed electrician in your congregation, we are ready and willing to work with them to communicate exactly what your new system will need.

Rigging: For Experienced Engineers

One of the most expensive parts of a system contract is the design, time, and materials that it takes to make sure a mounted piece of equipment is not going to come down on someones head. For the safety of your church, it’s important that these rigs are done correctly. But if you have a trusted engineer at your disposal that can ensure his or her work, we would be happy to communicate to them the measurements your new system’s design will require.

Wire Pulling: For I.T. Workers

Just about every professionally integrated system is going to require some sort of low-voltage wiring running through your walls, ceilings, and even floors. Many people that have worked in the IT field have the experience necessary to get the cables to and from where we will need them without compromising their wire’s integrity.

What you can expect:

  • The Church Audio Video team meets with appropriate personnel in your church to discuss your vision, ministry style, specific objectives, and aesthetic preferences.

  • We provide an itemized quote including all materials and labor.
  • Upon your acceptance of the proposal with any revisions, we draft a formal contract that defines your project’s work schedule and payment terms.
  • Equipment is ordered and installation begins according to the agreed-upon plan.
  • We provide oral and written progress reports throughout every stage of your project.
  • After completion, we provide basic training for all system operators.
