Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul... (Plato, philosopher) 
In the spring of 2015, Futronics Lighting and Sound, a company based here in Brooklyn on Columbia Street, replaced our 23-year-old obsolete sound system. Our sanctuary microphones are now connected to a Symetrix Jupiter 12 mixer, while the musician's are connected to this main mixer via a submixer, the Mackie DL806, which provides much needed flexibility to the sound of the various ensembles and is controlled by an iPad. New low profile music microphones, the Earthworks FMR600, strike a key balance between being inconspicuous while still delivering high quality audio, as do the ultra-low profile Astatic Control Microphones mounted on stands above the choir.

Futronics also replaced our speakers with new, Energy Star rated ones. So despite our high ceiling and the reflective surfaces of our floor and pews which make it difficult for people to hear clearly, Iconyx and Innovox Frequency Shaded Line Array speakers enable both effective communication and expressive musical artistry in our church.
