Alexandria First Presbyterian Church

One of the locations on the National Registry of Historic Places got a modern-day technology makeover.

The Alexandria First Presbyterian Church, whose main sanctuary was built in the late 1800s, now features a new audio and video system designed and installed by JD Sound and Video. This system includes distributed HD video with multiple screens along with Community Professional Loudspeakers’ ENTASYS column arrays and VLF Series subwoofers.

“It’s not a large building and it’s not very ornate,” says Joe DiSabatino of JD Sound. “But they’ve invested wisely with the technology they’ve installed.”

JD Sound faced challenges with the church’s old stone walls and hard surfaces, which created a highly reflective acoustical environment. JD Sound used a pair of Community ENTASYS column loudspeakers to cover the entire space and a pair of VLF208 subwoofers to fill out the frequency range. The church’s previous pair of Community CSX loudspeakers was repurposed

The Alexandria First Presbyterian Church (located in Virginia) now also utilizes a Rane HAL system, which provides DSP and enables the church to make multi-channel recordings of their services.
