Austin Ridge Bible Church in Austin, Texas, which seats 750, recently hired Ford Audio-Video Systems, Inc. (Ford AV) to replace its existing speaker system with a NEXO GEO S 12 Series line array. 6x NEXO GEO S1210s and 2x GEO S1230s were chosen along with 2x NXAMP 4×4 amps.
“We decided to install the NEXO system because of its reputation in the industry and its price point,” states Jeff Neidel, Senior Account Manager, Ford AV. Neidel completed the install with a BSS BLU16-8X8 AV, 8X8 DSP processor and Middle Atlantic SR-40-22 Rack, and used a combination of Belden and West Penn wiring for the new system.
“I was amazed at the difference in the sound compared to the old system,” said church member Michael DaSilva. “From the minute I walked in the doors I could tell it was like night and day. The sound was much cleaner and clearer without being overly loud. And when no one was talking, you couldn’t hear the humming sound that you usually hear when a system is on. I was very impressed the first week, and I continue to notice the difference week after week!”
Established in 1973, Ford AV designs, installs, rents, and services professional audio, video, lighting services for houses of worship, corporate clients, performing arts, entertainment, government, and sports venues.
