Lee University Chapel

Project Scope

CEI earned this new construction Chapel project located in Cleveland TN which required a complete audio system for the Sanctuary, narthex, terrace level reception hall, bride and groom’s rooms. For the main Sanctuary, Renkus-Heinz Iconyx ICL-FR loudspeaker arrays were used to cover the Main Sanctuary: two columns covered the north and south transepts, two arrays covered the main Sanctuary, and two Renkus-Heinz PN82/9r Power loudspeakers covered the balcony. All were painted to match the millwork.

Additionally, two Renkus-Heinz PN212-SUBR powered portable subwoofer speakers, fixed choir fold back speakers, portable floor monitors, OAP NF-331HP stairstep front fill loudspeakers in the platform riser and additional loudspeakers in the narthex, corridors, bride’s and groom’s room. A Roland M-300 Live V digital mixing console and stage boxes, Bi-Amp Nexia DSP, other audio sources and wired and wireless microphones, source rack and Telex wireless intercom system rounded out the major equipment. What a beautiful sanctuary for a wedding and other special events!

The terrace level reception hall was outfitted with a separate system which includes two ceiling mounted KSI 80891-CSD loudspeakers for stereo source playback flanking the sides of the motorized projection screen and Tannoy CMS601BM ceiling loudspeakers for vocal reinforcement. A Soundcraft analog mixer, wireless microphones and source equipment is located in an in-wall rack.


We have thoroughly enjoyed working with CEI on this project.  Not only is the sound in our Chapel terrific, the speakers blend in so well they are hardly noticed.  These were two important goals we had when we started working with CEI.  They were able to pull them off perfectly to meet our needs. – Cole Strong, Assistant to the President, Lee University
