Sound performance at Harvest House


Harvest House Church was established in 1977. In 2008, the church’s sanctuary was transformed into a performing arts venue, complete with recording studio, dance studio and art studio, as well as the main venue. This has provided the congregation with the rather unique experience of worshipping through performance. More recently, the church has upgraded its sound system with a range of PreSonus solutions, installed by Selah Media Productions. 

‘This project was an extensive AV retrofit,’ explained Buck Roberts, president at Selah Media Productions. ‘We upgraded the space from older PreSonus equipment that included WorxAudio Wave series loudspeakers and a StudioLive 32.4.2AI mixing console. This upgrade represented a substantial improvement in sound and control capability since the space will now be used as a performing arts centre in addition to its use for worship services. The upgraded system encompasses the new PreSonus CDL12 constant directivity loudspeakers, a StudioLive 32 40-input digital console, a StudioLive 32R rack mixer, an NSB 8.8 AVB-networked stage box, and an SW5E 5-port AVB switch with PoE (Power over Ethernet).’

Selah Media Productions provided acoustic treatment in the space, which accommodates up to 400 people with removable seating, several years ago. The newly installed sound system comprises six CDL12 speakers, deployed three per side of the stage. For low-end reinforcement, two ULT18 subwoofers were placed in the floor on each side, making a total of four. Six PreSonus EarMix 16M AVB-networked personal monitor mixers handle stage monitoring duties along with a pair of AIR10 active loudspeakers used as floor monitors.

The StudioLive 32 console manages the FOH mix and is augmented by the StudioLive 32R rackmount mixer, configured for use in stage box mode. A PreSonus SW5E AVB switch handles the system’s network configuration.

‘The feedback from the staff at Harvest House Church has been overwhelmingly positive,’ said Mr Roberts. ‘The pastor was amazed at what we are able to do with the system and the tech director says, audio is crystal clear, and every seat sounds the same. Musicians love the monitoring system and its ability to give each person the ability for stereo in-ear mixes. Similarly, the venue manager reports this new setup gives them the ability to boost the number of events that get booked.’
