— AV systems integrator The ESB Group enhances church systems in Daphne, Alabama, while it designs and installs audio, video and lighting systems for a new facility in Mobile, all with rack, power and
cable management from Lowell —

PACIFIC, MO, August 1, 2012 — When Bay Community Church was in the process of building its second campus, in Mobile, Alabama, to complement its first location in Daphne, just across Mobile Bay, they turned to The ESB Group, a leading audio, video, lighting and security systems integrator in nearby Springville. They, in turn, specified racks, power and cable management from Lowell Manufacturing Company, a U.S. manufacturer of professional AV Products currently celebrating its 65th anniversary, to make sure all of the systems that went into both locations achieved maximum performance. The ESB Group installed Lowell products including the LGR-4436-LRD (44U 36-in. deep gangable rack); LER-2427-LRD (24U 27-in. deep stand-alone rack); ACS-1510-WW (15A/10-outlet power strip); ACS-2014-IG-HW (20A/7-duplex outlet power strip); LCC4-4436 (cable chase); and RSD-116 (reversible rackmount shelf/drawer).

“This was a big job, a design/build project where they asked us to design and install all of the audio, lighting and video systems for the new church, as well as add some new updates to the existing campus,” explains Larry Bounds, COO of The ESB Group. The sound system includes a main worship-area PA system using Electro-Voice X-Line components for a point-source system when the low ceiling height would not permit use of a line array system; a 30-foot center video screen flanked by two smaller screens and designed to allow the Pastor to speak from either campus seamlessly from a visual perspective; and what Bounds characterizes as “a ton” of high-end lighting systems, including Martin robotic lighting fixtures and extensive trussing.

“The Lowell racks and power and cable management systems made the job far more manageable,” Bounds says. “We were able to tie it all together with the Lowell racks, including the processing for the new Midas Pro 2 digital console we installed for front-of-house. The church told us that our design and the systems we installed met and exceeded their expectations, and Lowell had a lot to do with that.”
