This project was a direct referral from a previous Greek Orthodox Church in Northern California that was so successful that the owner of this project was confident Spider Ranch Productions was the correct choice for their project as well. This building’s roof is comprised of a singular large central dome over the main seating and four quarter domes around the room. The objective was to design and build an audio system that could penetrate the difficult acoustics of the space and project speech for the congregation to engage with the leader. Spider Ranch partner GIA Design Group for such projects- to create computer aided acoustic models that allow in-depth scrutiny and analysis of the acoustic space, then in-turn create and model a proper speaker system. GIA Design Group then quantifies the results with data that includes audio files of the space that can be listened to before the space is built. This enables Spider Ranch to offer the best results possible with confidence for the owner to make well informed decisions with no experimenting.
Audio convolution files (below) can be best listened to with headphones for best accuracy. This level of acoustic design validation is performed to assist the owner in making informed decisions about the performance level of speakers Spider Ranch recommends in the most challenging acoustic environments. These files below are considered to be in the 90% accuracy of what can be expected when the building has a human voice or recommended speaker product as a sound source.
