Houses of worship are varied, with sanctuaries and spaces of many sizes, interior styles, and shapes. In our 34 years of experience working with churches and congregations in designing auditorium sound systems, one of the questions that sparks the liveliest conversations is, "Where do I put the speakers?" Naturally, the acoustics of the space, and perhaps more importantly, how the congregation worships and services are conducted, will play key roles in the design of the audio system.
