The Family Worship center was suffering some severe acoustical issues caused by the blunt face of the balcony, as well as the unique shape of the ceiling. To address these issues, the Paragon team installed FabriTRAK acoustic treatment on the front face of the balcony and hung custom-built acoustical ceiling clouds throughout the sanctuary.
The updated stage design impacted several aspects of Swaggart's audio design. The existing floor pocket infrastructure was renewed and raised to the new level of the new platform. Our team also relocated the monitor mix location, improved the ergonomics of the patch bays, and installed all new multi-pair cable for the entire system.
The Swaggart audio production team was plain in their objectives, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." With this in mind, the Paragon design team worked within the existing system and made improvements where needed. The FOH mixing platform remained analog, and an analog patch bay was installed to accommodate the current analog connectivity of the system. Our team completed the installation while maintaining broadcast operations by renewing the audio system and utilizing existing equipment. This approach also allowed the technical team at Jimmy Swaggart Ministries to build on their previous success, with very little additional training.
