ALPHA SOUND & LIGHTING CO.'s 37 YEARS OF SYSTEM CONSULTING, DESIGN, AND INSTALLATION experience allows us to provide you with professional advice and direction in the ever-expanding and complicated world of pro-audio, stage lighting, and video projection system design and installation. One of ALPHA's goals is to work inconjunction with architects, a/v consultants, and design experts throughout the installation process to deliver the best designed and installed systems. Architects, a/v consultants, and design professionals working and communicating with ALPHA Sound & Lighting Co. during the entire project produce high quality installed systems completed to exact specifications and on time.
When ALPHA is working on design/bid projects with a consultant we participate only as a contractor, system installer, or system integrator. The design is the responsibility of the consultant and as such he or she will meet with you, the project owner, to determine the technical requirements for preparing the design specifications and drawings. When ALPHA is awarded the installation contract our technical team will follow the drawings and specifications to install the system. During the installation process ALPHA will communicate with the architects, a/v consultants, and/or design professionals to ensure that the system is installed as specified. Our expert system installers will complete systems testing (and review findings with the consultant) to assure that the installation is mechanically safe and properly wired in accordance with safe rigging and standard wiring conventions.
As a company that has seen acoustical design methods and multimedia technologies change and develop since 1977, we are able to assist you in making the right decisions for your project. This includes determining which system is best for you as well as how to implement the technology so that your system will continue to be a powerful tool for many years to come. We understand today's system demands and the need to effectively communicate your messages, so rely on us for knowledge that will help you implement the BEST SYSTEM at the BEST PRICE!
WHY NOT CAPTURE THE BEST QUALITY SOUND?
"Nobody was ever sorry they bought the best." It's not likely that the Best Quality Sound will just happen when you build a new auditorium or meeting room. The Best Quality Sound in a new building or an existing one is the result of careful attention to acoustical planning and the precision installation of pro-audio equipment and audio electronics.
BUILDING A NEW HOUSE OF WORSHIP BUILDING?
The Best Quality Sound in your new house of worship facility, church, educational facility, or institution starts with research, planning, and development of room and/or building acoustics. ALPHA Sound & Lighting Co. will work with you and your Building Contractors, Sound Technicians, and Liturgical Committees to determine the best application(s) that will fit your particular needs. We will then help you take the guesswork and problem solving out of determining the correct acoustics and make sure every electrical, mechanical, structural, and aesthetic detail is provided for in your building plans.
SOUND PROBLEMS IN AN EXISTING BUILDING OR FACILITY?
Your existing house of worship building can have the Best Quality Sound too. ALPHA Sound & Lighting Co. starts by developing a complete acoustical profile of your room or building. The new acoustical survey usually produces results that are quite often profound and which yield significant cost savings by avoiding false starts and unnecessary equipment. The acoustical surveys help to determine whether the sound problems that exist are from the acoustics of the room/building, the products and/or equipment, the design and configuration of existing systems, or a combination of these situations.
BEST TECHNOLOGY = THE BEST QUALITY SOUND!
Our computer age has provided the most advanced technology in history. ALPHA Sound & Lighting Co. uses the Best and latest state-of-the-art computerized engineering and testing equipment to develop The Best Sound Quality in your existing or new church building. At your disposal is our computerized engineering arsenal. You are not limited to the best equipment from only one manufacturer, but rather, you receive all the best designed plans and acoustical surveys using our top-of-the-line computer systems, programs and software from a variety of trusted and well known manufacturers. Thus, when it comes time to planning your environmental acoustics you can believe ALPHA does the job right the first time!
PLANNING HOUSE AND STAGE LIGHTING SYSTEMS
When planning a house or stage lighting system many questions, both general and detailed, must be covered. A number of technical questions must be taken into consideration, reviewed, and addressed when planning a stage lighting system, including: How much light is necessary?, What do I want the audience to see?, What mood am I trying to create?, and What is the size of my visual setting? ALPHA Sound & Lighting Co. can help you answer these questions by providing you with the technical information you need. Understanding the emotional and psychological effects that stage and theatrical lighting has on your audience is key to developing and designing a great lighting system. By designing, planning, and implementing a quality lighting system many major problems can be addressed and avoided. Problems such as hot spots (obtrusive overhead lights), sharp and undesirable shadows and conflicting color temperatures are major problems that are taken into account when designing your house or stage lighting system.
