A single processor is required to perform cross-over and E.Q. functions. Presets in most processors can be saved for numerous service scenarios. Amplification requirements are minimal due to the efficiency of the Tectonic panels and subs. Typical applications up to 5,000 seats require three or four amplifiers powered by two 110V A.C. cables.
A system that is nearly impervious to feed-back eliminates probably the #1 issue for HOW sound systems. The Tectonic system’s diffuse audio propagation characteristics make it nearly impervious to feedback. Panels can be placed behind, in the middle of or in front of performers and worship leaders. (At one demo, the pastor, with wireless headset, rode his bicycle through the congregation during his sermon!)
Acoustic output from the Tectonic system is remarkably constant from the front row to the back of the house. Concert goers expect an intense sound level in the front row. Parishioners do not. The Tectonic system delivers audio output that is engaging and enjoyable for all ages and expectations.
Assisted Listening Needs
Anecdotal evidence from congregation member who have relied on assisted listening systems or hearing aids, including cochlear implants, have reported remarkable intelligibility when listening to the Tectonic system; some saying that it was the only system that they could actually hear and understand.
For ministries who rely of temporary or borrowed space, or wish to move services outdoors, the Tectonic system is ideal. Panels weigh 50lbs each and are easily hung from stage lifts by one or two people. An entire system can be secured in a modest utility room or transported in a van. For outdoor applications, the Tectonic system is resistant to the audio effects of cross-winds that can sweep-away high frequency content.
