Mixer Amplifiers & Powered Mixing Desks

Mixer/amplifiers are usually box shaped units which can be put in a cupboard whereas powered mixers usually come in a flatbed format and sit on top of a desk, table or shelf.  In a typical church setting, mixer/amps are ideal if you don't want to change settings very often whilst in use.  Powered mixers are more useful if you want an operator changing settings during a service or meeting on a regular basis. Both types include a mixer and amplifier(s) in one combined unit. Care should be taken when choosing a mixer/amplifier or powered mixer in order to get the right one for you needs.

MICROPHONE INPUTS

Dedicated XLR type 3 pin microphone inputs are important for sound quality reasons. Most modern day microphones are low impedance (typically 600 Ohms) and need balanced XLR connections.  6.35mm (1/4 inch) jack plug inputs (usually used for musical instruments) have a typical resistance of 50,000 Ohms and if you connect your microphones to these you will only get about half the volume.

AUXILIARY (AUX) OUTPUTS

It is important that you have enough Aux outputs on your mixer/amp or mixer. If you need to supply a sound source to an induction loop amplifier for the hard of hearing plus a creche room monitor speaker and a foldback monitor for the music group, you will already need three aux outputs on your mixer/amp or mixer besides the main outputs to your speakers,. The more Aux outputs you have the better really but at least two are recommended in all but the most basic systems.

Some mixer/amps and powered mixers have digital effects built in which are not always required in praise and worship settings.  If this is the case in your situation, you can use the FX output as an additional Aux output.

PHANTOM POWER

You may want to use condenser microphones which pick up sound from further away than dynamic microphones (see microphone page on this website), if you do, then you will need a mixer/amplifier or powered mixer that has phantom power available to power them.  Condenser microphones generally produce a clearer sound but cost more than dynamic microphones, so if you want to keep the cost of both mixer and microphones down there are also a few dynamic microphones with neodymium (Hi-energy) capsules which also tend pick up over extended distances almost as well, and they don't need phantom power.

WE CAN HELP

If you're not sure about what you need please feel free to give us a call at KBS Sound. As members of churches ourselves we understand that it's important to get it right first time and we are happy to talk things through with you.  We also operate a nation-wide consultation service where we can come out to your church if you prefer.
