It’s been over 14 years since The Crossing Church opened its doors and its growth has been non stop. As one of the steadiest growing churches in Las Vegas, The Crossing enjoys a congregation that appreciates the way they hear their message and music.
So when it came time for The Crossing to expand into their new facility, the dream of having a great sound, video, and lighting system was on top of the list.
The approach to make this dream happen was a process that Lee Coate, Executive Pastor of Ministry & Media for The Crossing, found intriguing. The Crossing had started the process of construction and system design for the new facility, when they realized that they were going to need an audio video consulting team, to advise them for their project. When you talk about sound, lighting and video system design consulting, the first step to finding a team to work with, is to check with your friends and other ministry leaders and see who they would recommend. Keep in mind, this church audio video consultant team would have to jump in the game where construction had already started and progress had definitely moved forward.
The team that would come highly recommend by other church ministry leaders and even members of The Crossing, would be Coherent Design. Hands down!
Led by Kevin Potts and David Starck, Coherent Design took over immediately and provided an outstanding sound system, an eye pleasing lighting system and an immaculate video system using technology in a unique and incredible way.
One of those ways was the design and use of Meyer Sound System, specifically the low end speakers. These subs were flown in an end-fired array over the center of the stage. David Starck says “with this type of sound system design and the way the low frequency cabinets were flown, there is an approximate 60% low end noise cancellation on the stage which is incredible”. So for churches that experience acoustic issues on their stage such as low end build-up, muddy sound, or just a whole mess of sound anomalies that make performing a bit uncomfortable, Coherent Design found and designed a solution to that unwanted low end boom on the stage and delivered and outstanding sound system design where performers and church congregation can enjoy impeccable quality sound.
“It was a pleasure having Kevin Potts and David Starck on our team. I didn’t have to worry about a thing once these guys were on board. System design to project management to full on communication throughout the whole process, Coherent Design handled all of that for us and we are very pleased with the end result” says Lee Coate. “This is an audio video consulting team I would highly recommend.
