Spectrum Design Group and Crest Audio Consoles Get The Word Out

Spectrum Design Group, a leading house of worship multimedia, audio and lighting systems integration firm established in 1992, continually relies upon Crest Audio X-VCA(TM), X-8(TM) and V-12(TM) mixing consoles to help churches evangelize the Word of Jesus Christ. From 1999 through 2002, Spectrum Design Group led the nation in sales of Crest Audio V-12 mixing consoles. Crest Audio will be on display at the 2004 Winter NAMM Expo in Anaheim, Calif., January 15-18, 2003, at exhibit #6874, hall A.

Spectrum Design Group founder and president Thomas Johnson, a devout Christian and former musician with a wealth of touring experience, understands the uniqueness and demands of Christian Worship services. A new generation of churches, such as the Crossroads Church in Vancouver, Wa., the Bethany First Church of the Nazarene in Oklahoma City and Life Church in Mission Viejo, Calif., offer morning services that are liturgical in nature, while afternoon and evening services feature a very contemporary rock ‘n’ roll format.

In order to handle long duty cycles and the diverse live and prerecorded program material, Johnson relies on professional audio equipment whose reputations were forged in the fires of the unforgiving road and infinite concert tours.

“The advanced multimedia-based services of today must be supported on a rock solid foundation of quality audio performance, otherwise the service?s message will be compromised,” said Johnson. “Crest Audio mixing consoles continually provide my clients with the durability, versatility, ease of use and unrivaled sonic quality that they, as well as the Lord?s Word, demands. When you factor in the V-12’s feature-rich design compared to its price point, the V-12 actually delivers more benefits at a much higher level of quality. I consider the V-12 to be the finest analog console ever conceived and I would never compromise the audio backbone of my clients’ worship services to any other desk.”

Crossroads Church in Vancouver uses a Crest Audio V-12 46×6 console with a 28-input sidecar at the front-of-house mix position, and a Crest Audio Century LMx 52×22 for the monitors. The Bethany First Church of the Nazarene uses a V-12 48×4 with a 28-input sidecar at the front-of-house position, and the Life Church uses a V-12 48×4 console at the front-of-house position.
