Advice for a Church Venue
Will two L1 Pro16s work for us?
The church I serve at has a very old cluster (center-mounted) speaker system -- so old they don't even make parts for them. We were quoted by a local audio company approx. $50K for a professionally installed line array (I do not have the specs). The room is 100ft X 100ft (roughly square) with a balcony. Recently we purchased an L1 Pro8 for our Fellowship Hall and were impressed with it. On a whim we brought it into our Worship Center, set it up alongside the front wall on the left side of the room, and were blown away by how loud it could get and by its clarity (even up in the balcony)!
So, my question: what are anyone's thoughts on purchasing two L1 Pro16s for the room ($4,000) vs. a $50K professional line array? Pros, cons? Thanks in advance for any input!
