St. Martin-in-the-Fields Episcopal Church
Philadelpia, PA

Upgrade and renewal of this late-19th century Victorian-gothic church sanctuary included removal of white paint applied in the 1940s, exposing decorative glazed brick walls and returning this intimate space to its original beauty. We designed a new speech reinforcement sound system to replace a long series of unsuccessful systems which had not met the needs of the congregation. Steerable line-array loudspeakers are mounted on the transept front walls, displaced from the pulpit and lectern at the chancel arch. Not ideally located for listeners in the nave, these loudspeaker positions were requested by the architect and church on the basis of appearance, requiring supplementary loudspeakers for the chancel, transepts and rear nave. A digital-audio signal processor is configured with an innovative “level - delay - mixing matrix,” providing listeners with simultaneous “location imaging” of talkers at left, center and right.
