    How practical is a PM1D for a church install?

    The speakers we're really considering as the QSC KLA series with one subwoofer on top of the L and R stacks. They've got the coverage we need, especially in an LCR setup. Also, our budget is 200k, but if we need more, we can get it no problem. Our pastor is also excited to get the new system...

    How practical is a PM1D for a church install?

    well, about the budget, we have 200k for everything; we only need the consoles, speakers, cabling, and additional in-ear monitor systems. This is just me thinking out loud, but do you all think a PM5D + DSP5D for FOH and a PM1D for monitor world with an analog split would work well? I spoke...

    How practical is a PM1D for a church install?

    Yes, the director has complete power over what sound equipment the church purchases. To get anything that costs over 500 dollars, I have to bring it up to the director and he has to personally sign off on it. If he approves, the pastor will write him a check to buy the equipment. But for things...

    How practical is a PM1D for a church install?

    About the PM1D: The director actually tried a PM1D out and he is in love with it; no matter what console I show him, he still prefers the sound of the PM1D. Also, the director is somewhat of a Yamaha fanatic, so the console must be a Yamaha (he won't approve any other brand of console). Is...

    How practical is a PM1D for a church install?

    No, we don't use any system processing of any kind except for an EQ and a compressor. The director's idea with the PM1D is that we would use its onboard processing as the system processor; each of those zones calls for a special mix because of how the church is set up. The choir and instruments...

    How practical is a PM1D for a church install?

    If we get a second surface for monitor world, is there any real harm in running a dual-engine, dual-console system as two independent PM1D's with one engine each? And in monitor world, the monitor techs would use EQ attenuation as the HA gain knob (Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the EQ...

    How practical is a PM1D for a church install?

    We sat down and we went through our I/O needs for FOH and I haven't seen many consoles that have the I/O we need: We are going to have LCR mains, aux-fed subs, 4 pairs of delay speakers, 4 zones of ceiling speakers for backup, stereo cry room and nursery zones, vestibule, CD recording capability...

    How practical is a PM1D for a church install?

    This would be our first digital board, but I'd been trained to do sound on a PM5D when I started out. And we have a very large pool of techs to draw from: we have 7 FOH techs, 7 monitor techs, a vice sound tech, and the head sound tech (me). I'd naturally train every one of our techs on the PM1D...

    How practical is a PM1D for a church install?

    Hi all, We're installing a new sound system in my church (LCR FOH with fills, several zoned speakers, and stereo subwoofers) and a new monitor system to go with it in a few months. As we look for equipment, we saw a PM1D with two engines for a very reasonable price. Our current system is a PM4K...
