Audio Cables Churches Need
We understand that many churches don't have technical people there to help them set up their new PA speakers when they arrive. That's why we're here to help. From choosing your PA speakers for your church to actually setting them up - we've got you covered.
A variety of audio cables are necessary for churches to set up their PA systems. It really depends on the actual audio gear you have when it comes to knowing what speaker cables you need. As a general rule though, churches generally do not require as many cables as a band would to set up their audio gear.
Typically churches will only utilize speaker cables, microphone cables, instrument cables and possibly snake cables in rare instances. Speaker cables are needed to hook up your speakers to the power outlet and to each other. Simply check to see the connection you have on your pa speaker either speakon, 1/4", XLR, Banana, or any other and that will tell you what type of cable to get. You will also need to measure your space to determine what cord length you will need. Generally churches do not need additional cables because the speaker installation is generally permanent. Microphone cables are only needed if microphones are utilized in your church. Similarly, instrument cables are only needed if they are being used.
If your church does have a high number of speakers, mics and instruments being used - this is when having a patch cable is helpful, so all cables can be plugged in one central snake, preventing to many cords across the floor.
