Problem: South Delta Baptist Church seats a congregation of approximately 1600 people on the main floor and in the upper balcony. A large percentage of the congregation was challenged in hearing the message that was being presented due to a lack of intelligibility - caused by excessive reverberation and echo throughout the sanctuary.
Solution: Primacoustic Broadway panels were placed on only 17% of the wall surface and spread evenly throughout the sanctuary. As the style of worship also incorporates amplified instruments, careful attention was paid to the stage area to control reflections from vocal monitors, guitar amplifiers and drums. Reverberation was significantly decreased from 4 seconds to just over 1 second, greatly improving intelligibility and enhancing the worship experience for everyone.
