Recently, United Methodist congregation Ginghamsburg Church in Tipp City, Ohio, decided to do a major overhaul of its AV system, and church leadership turned to Columbus-based firm LIVE! Technologies for the full package – consulting, vending, installation and service.

LIVE! designed and installed a system that included 12 RoomMatch loudspeakers as the mains, four RoomMatch RMS215 subwoofers (flown) and three RoomMatch RMS218 subs (below the stage), two RoomMatch Utility RMU208 loudspeakers as front fills, ten PowerMatch amplifiers with Dante cards and Bose ControlSpace ESP-00 DSP with Dante card. 

Cody Ramey, LIVE!’s account executive for Ginghamsburg Church, stated, “There are so many different amp and cabinet configurations available with the Bose RoomMatch system that it is easy to create a specific system for this application. It was also appealing to us because of the excellent craftsmanship and reliability that the product line is known for.”

Mead points out how the installation followed a growing trend in AV integration: the implementation of Audinate’s Dante protocol.

He stated, “The entire system is run on Dante. They have their video production suite on the third floor of the building, so being able to do audio-over-IP was quite handy to get all the different locations we had in the room back to the console, and into the Bose ControlSpace processing. The Dante cards offered by Bose make that interoperability very straightforward.”

Subsequently, Benge and the Ginghamsburg team have seen excellent results with the audio installation, a fact which he credits to the LIVE! team’s focused design process to fulfill Ginghamsburg’s requirements for the sanctuary.
