From Joe Hayes, Churchwarden of St Nicholas, Arundel

''Now that the system has been fully installed and working for several months, I though it appropriate to write saying how very satisfied we are. The design covered our requirements plus a few we had not thought of which were suggested by your firm. We were grateful for these inputs. The team of installers were sensitive to our requirements and fitted in with the other contractors on site. All of the work has been done to a very high standard. Concealment of wires and fittings are better than we expected.''

St Nicholas, Wickham
Priory Church of St Mary & St Blaise

Priory Church of St Mary & St Blaise

The Priory Church of St Mary and St Blaise is listed in the Domesday book of 1086 and now benefits from 21st century technology. Digital signal processors “tune” the amplified sound to the natural acoustics of the space and Blue tooth wireless connections and radio microphones make the system almost cable free.

''Many thanks and congratulations for what 'Sound Advice' has achieved with the installation of the new sound system at Boxgrove Priory.  The sheer sophistication of this straightforward-looking installation means that instead of people coming to me to moan about inaudible readings, and so forth, they are praising the crystal clarity of it all.  Your advice was admirable, and during the installation the care shown for the building  reflected  best practice.  It all looks good and sounds good.''

Fr Ian Forrester

Holy Trinity church, Sloane Square, London

Infrared conference equipmentThe magnificent Holy Trinity church in Sloane Square in the centre of London chose Sound Advice to carry out the refurbishment of the sound system after the old system became past economical repair.

New cabling was concealed in steel trunking hidden in the floor to deter the mice who liked nibbling the old cabling. The system now provides eight zones of audio. Instead of the whole system coming on all of the time, at the touch of a button, different loudspeakers can be turned on / off to concentrate the sound in one particular area. The Lady Chapel, for instance, is used daily for morning prayer and all of the other loudspeakers are automatically turned off.

Although built in the 1880's Holy Trinity now benefits from a completely digital and very modern sound system, see full profile here.

All Saints, Bighton

Infrared conference equipmentWith a stone floor and lots of flat, decorated surfaces there was not and easy way to hide any cables or equipment without major disruption at All Saints, Bighton. The solution was to hide the loudspeaker and hard of hearing system behind the lattice screen with the control equipment under a seat in the choir. The installation is almost invisible.


All Saints, Bisham

Infrared conference equipment

Located in an ideal location next to the Thames near Marlow, All Saints Church, Bisham, has a large and lively parish and congregation.

The tower and two wide aisles add to its attraction but unfortunately, they are not ideally suited to reproducing the human voice. Being wider than it is long, it is very difficult to hear the spoken word in the side aisles.

Sound Advice won the competitive tender and technical evaluation and installed a new system comprising of line array loudspeakers, condenser and radio microphones and a loop induction system.

Robert Frost, the PCC’s Project Manager commented, ''The clarity of the new sound system in all corners of the church has been a revelation for all members of the congregation. One person with a hearing aid, able to hear the sermon for the first time in 30 years, declared that the system was absolutely marvellous.''
