Every year for the past five years, my church has “given” my town a fireworks display for Independence Day. It’s a pretty huge deal, and we always have a great response with our attendance averaging in the thousands. All in all, the event does well, but that’s because we put a lot into it.
One of our best moves yet was to purchase two mobile sound systems from B-52 Professional for use with this event. (We use one of them for smaller events throughout the year.)
We chose the Matrix-2000, which is a whole lot of awesome.
When we purchased our first Matrix, we put it through its paces. While our main sanctuary was being constructed, it became our primary sound system when we held services in our gym.
For those of you keeping score, the Matrix is capable of producing a full, rich sound—whether in a gym or open field—and yet is rugged enough to be hauled all over creation, even two years ago when our fireworks event was rained out.
Now, I’m not trying to sell anything. (I’m certainly not being paid by B-52!) I am, however, very happy with our mobile sound solution.
How about you?
Does your church do a lot of events that require a sound system?
What do you use?
