Holy Family Church

Syracuse, NY - USA

In smaller churches, attaining reverberant characteristics necessary for a good musical program often means increasing the cubic volume of the building, and hardening surfaces to increase the strength, density and duration of reflected sound in the space. Even if raising the roof or moving walls is practical, such an exercise is a construction project that will be costly and require closing the building for some time.

LARES can provide a substantial improvement in overall acoustical balance in smaller spaces. Although speakers need to mounted throughout the venue, this exercise is much simpler than reconstruction, and most often can be accomplished while primary worship services continue.

A LARES system can be designed to simply add energy for choir and organ - improving spaciousness, warmth and envelopment, and the feeling of intimacy within the environment.
