Just an electrical question.


"Electrical systems that are grounded shall be connected to earth in a manner that will limit the voltage imposed by lightning, line surges, or unintentional contact with higher-voltage lines and that will stabilize the voltage to earth during normal operation."

It's gone bad already, right from the get-go. Churches are places of assembly. They're not places for DIYers to ply their trade, or lack thereof. The fact that a church is even considering anything less than a professional to solve this problem is unnerving.

We can say that all we want but it won't change a thing. Depends on the church and how much someone can convince them that even though they are low on funds it ain't worth the members safety to hack around guessing. I agree with darren try an audio fix and if that don't get it get an electrician...just have to pass the hat twice every sunday for awhile.....
