Locally owned and operated since 1984, R & D Industries’ Audio Engineering department would like to thank all of our satisfied Iowa, Minnesota and South Dakota church clients. We continue to enjoy the opportunity to create beautiful sounding spaces throughout the region.
With a focus on sound quality, complete and even acoustical coverage and clarity, our sound systems are built for optimal performance. Expert environment testing, architectural studies, and factory-authorized partnerships allow us to deliver a difference you can hear and truly enjoy. Clients who benefit from our audio systems department include churches, worship halls, praise bands, church choirs, congregations, clergy members, and visitors alike.
We understand that determining what sound system is right for your church can seem like an overwhelming task, but it doesn’t have to be. From conception to implementation, our certified staff is ready to help you every step of the way. Every worship space has its own unique acoustical signature. Furthermore, each congregation has its own goals for the use of their worship space. Taking these goals and making them a reality is what our experienced team can do for your church.
For example, if your church offers a more traditional worship service with a pipe organ, a naturally-reinforced choir, then a slightly more-reverberant worship space may be desired. However, if your church prefers a contemporary service - which often includes percussion, low-frequency musical instruments such as a bass guitar, and vocalists, a less reverberant worship space is generally desired. Regardless of your needs, our acoustical department will consider your church's goals and recommend treatments or techniques that will help you reach your goals.
Simply put, no single "boxed" solution will work for all churches. That’s why every professional sound system implemented by our Audio Engineering team is designed to meet the needs of your facility without losing sight of bottom line costs or aesthetics. In cases of construction and remodeling projects, our staff can reduce costly post-construction fixes by working with your architect during the initial construction phases to ensure the project is acoustically suited for the application.
Our engineers utilize computer-aided modeling techniques to examine various system components before actually installing them in a facility. This technology gives us the ability to predict such items as speech intelligibility, direct to reverberate ratios, sound pressure levels, coverage consistency, proper aiming, and much more.
