Formerly Imagine Church located in Burwood and headed up by Ps Melinda Dwight, Edge Church Melbourne recently underwent a full renovation. The auditorium is essentially an old warehouse building, complete with 'saw tooth' style roof. The renovation included the whole internal structure being completely refurbished.
The auditorium presented some interesting challenges, most notably with its considerably low roof in places. Selection and placement of suitable speaker elements was of course very crucial to the audio coverage. The need for power was reduced by the implementation of as much LED lighting as possible. This included LED fixtures for stage colour wash & effects as well as LED profile moving lights. A nice side benefit being a reduction of heat in the overhead stage space.
With a mixture of in-ear monitors & monitor wedges all run from the one mixing console at front of house, the Digico SD9 was chosen for its ease of use, exceptional sound quality & features, plus future expandability.
The overall result of the complete installation gives the auditorium a completely new look, feel and sound. It's a great result for one of Edge's smaller churches. We predict that it won't be long before there are multiple Sunday services and its bursting at the seams
Here's what Edge Melbourne's production team leader, Craig Taylor had to say about working with us:
"Forefront Productions recently completed a full sound, lighting and video system upgrade for Edge Church Melbourne as part of major renovation of the Auditorium.
Forefront have completed a number of other projects for Edge Church in Adelaide and are Edge Church's preferred supplier for sound, light and video systems. The time from our equipment order to our preferred installation date was short but Forefront were flexible and managed to source identical loan equipment before ours arrived to complete our installation within our time frame.
The installation team were a delight to work with and the installation was completed to a very professional standard. I would highly recommend Forefront Productions for Church sound, lighting and video, supply and installation".
