Live Event Issues Feedback What is Feedback ? You should be able to hear it happening Mic Placement and Types Monitors can be a primary cause Sometimes a System Setup Issue that needs Outside Help SPL Meter Every Church should have one. Weighting (A and C), Speed (Slow and Fast) How Loud is Loud enough ? Or Too Loud ? Try to keep the music in the low 90 dBC range – or Lower? Speakers and Pastors around 75 dBA is usually good.
