    Sound Upgrade

    Hie guys and thank you for all the sound advice you give.

    I am doing sound in our church and recently my pastor asked me what we need to upgrade our sound. Here is how my sound is currently set up;
    I use a YAMAHA EMX5000 mixer(powered mixer), 4 JBL mid-range speakers(powered speakers). My mixer sends a sound signal to the two main speakers and the other two speakers pick up the sound from the output XLR connectors of the main speakers.

    I have no bass bins or amplifiers or platform monitors for reference. What do you think i need to get to beef up this sound. The instruments we play are a Bass guitar, Lead guitar, Keyboard, Drums and about 9 microphones.

    Kind Regards.

    I wish I could help you but I cannot judge. You'd need to give some details as far as the space of the room - width, length, floor to ceiling height, balcony, floor carpeted or hard surface, speaker placement, pews or individual chairs, with or without cushions or clothe covering, audience size, how do the musicians hear the other instruments and the singers? Any external sounds that may interfere whether doors and/or windows are open or closed?

    What do you think? What does your audience think? Do they/you hear all the instruments and singers? Do they/you hear the spiritual leader clearly?

    So even if you gave all those details, it's hard for anybody to judge because no one has experienced the sound you have. And one thing to remember, sometimes less is more.
