Second Baptist Church in Springfield, Missouri has installed Danley Sound Labs SH-96 and SH-95 loudspeakers through A/V integration firm Sandor Sound Services.

“Second Baptist Church’s existing system was underpowered and left a lot of coverage holes,” said Ed Sandor, principal at Sandor Sound Services. “The challenge was to deliver the sizable output they needed without obscuring sight lines or creating an ugly mass of speakers – and to do it on a very tight budget. We were able to reuse their existing subwoofers and balcony speakers, giving us enough latitude to get the right Danley boxes for the main coverage, which was ultimately what was most important.”

 “I really only had about five feet from the ceiling to the lip of the proscenium hang. Other companies were suggesting line arrays, which would have hung down too far,” he added. “They would have looked like monstrosities! I showed them what Danley could do, and they were happy to hear that Danley could give the boxes a white finish to blend in with the white wall above the stage."

The church’s new system uses an exploded LCR array of three loudspeaker clusters, each of which includes a Danley SH-96 for main coverage and a Danley SH-95 for front fill. In addition, two four-channel Danley DNA 20K4 Pro amplifiers provide power for the new loudspeakers.

“Those six Danley boxes cover the room beautifully,” Sandor said. “Their tremendous output, especially given their size, is amazing. It was great that Danley could help us match the room’s aesthetic with a white finish. The aesthetics are a big deal to Second Baptist, and they’re thrilled with the result.”
