McDaniel College Baker Memorial Chapel

McDaniel College Gives Accolades to ENTASYS Sound System
One of the most visited buildings on campus is Baker Memorial Chapel. Constructed in 1958, the historic brick building hosts weekly worship services, campus-sponsored events including seasonal concerts, guest speakers and presentations, baccalaureate and invocation services, as well as frequent weddings and memorial services for alumni and current students. When the college’s administrators recently decided to replace the existing cluster-style sound system in the busy venue, it was crucial that the new system provide superior sound quality while preserving the church’s quaint aesthetic and historic architecture. The chapel’s wood paneled walls, initially designed as acoustical treatment for a massive, now-defunct pipe organ, presented some challenges in this regard.
