We pride ourselves on our personable, professional and friendly engineers.
We are professionals in the field, but we listen closely to your requirements and desires.
We have a passion for what we do, which means we don't accept anything less than perfect with every installation.
New equipment can be daunting, so we give training on how to operate each new system effectively before we leave.
We understand that you don't always have a huge budget to spend, but that shouldn't stop you getting exactly what you want out of a new sound, visual or hearing loop system. We are proud of our ability to install equipment which does everything you want to it to, whatever your budget.
Leave the hard work to us. We'll find the best equipment, design the system, provide you with a detailed quote and then complete the installation.
We do all the complicated elements, so that your new equipment is ready to use as soon as we have left.
Choose to be part of our maintenance programme and for a small fee each month, you can have peace of mind that if something goes wrong, we will get you up and running again before you next need to use the system. Get in touch to learn more!
“The new system is absolutely fantastic! We had two very important services in the week after Sound4Churches were here and they went without any hitches. We had lots of positive comments from the congregation about the quality and clarity of the speech.”
J. Burke (Wotton Wawen)
“The new sound system and projector installed by Sound4Churches blew us away from the second they switched it on at the end of the installation.”
Your space may need just one of these, or all of them depending on its use and how large it is, but they all enhance the experience for your congregation or your guests. Churches have wonderful acoustics, but these acoustics often cause problems hearing the sermons or readings clearly. Churches are difficult spaces to install equipment into because many are listed buildings, they are large spaces which create challenging acoustics and there is usually a need for any sound system, projector or hearing loop to be as unobtrusive as possible. At Sound4churches, we specialise in finding solutions to these challenges and allow you to have clear speech and music all across the church.
Having a sound system in these locations can greatly add to the ambiance and allow your guests to enjoy a more enjoyable experience. We can provide small equipment for intimate venues or larger systems for bigger spaces where background music still needs to be clear and high-quality. We work with a range of suppliers so that we have access to a large array of products, which allows us to tailor each system to the space we will be installing it into.
At Sound4Churches, we take pride in our understanding of the financial pressures many churches, village halls and small businesses face. Therefore, we always listen to the customer and find equipment at a budget which suits you, however big or small that is. We will always supply a written quotation so you can present this to other members of the committee or anyone else who needs to be involved in the process.
In many situations we can avoid the need for a Faculty by using innovative methods of installing the equipment, or by using equipment which can be free-standing. We will arrange with you to complete a site survey after you have enquired and during this, we will establish with you how a system can be installed with no interference to the fabric of the building. Our aim is always to make any new equipment as discreet and unobtrusive as possible.
In the simplest terms, an induction loop works on the principle of an audio signal being sent to an amplifier, which turns this into an electronic signal which, rather than going to loudspeakers, is fed around a cable placed around the perimeter of a room. The current flowing through the loop generates a magnetic field at audio frequency that radiates in the space around the loop cable. Any lines of magnetic flux that pass through the coil in a receiver, such as a hearing aid, will generate a current in that coil which is then converted back to audio and fed into the listener’s ear. There are different types of induction loops and thanks to modern technology, there is now a way to have a wireless hearing loop system.
Most of the time, if you have a sound system, then people using hearing aids should eb able to hear clearly using their hearing aids to pick up the sound that everyone else is hearing. However, there is government legislature (the Equality Act 2010) which states that public buildings should have the facility for haring aid users to use their 'Telecoil' position to hear what is happening. Quite often, a hearing aid user will prefer to use a hearing loop because it means they can hear clearer and easier, because their hearing aids are not picking up the other sounds around them, but just the microphone and music inputs.
Installations are carried out over one to three days subject to size. We arrange a convenient time, the work is carried out, we clear up, the system is demonstrated, and we leave the premises in neat and tidy order.
