41- When is Worship Too Loud?

When is worship too loud in your church?

Is Worship Too Loud, or are People Just Too Old?

You may have heard it said that if you think it’s too loud, you’re too old.  That was probably coined back in the late 60s or early 70s, when rock music was loud and, well, rocky, but the very ones who once said that are today complaining that the music in church is too loud, even though they are partially deaf these days!

So in your church, how do you know when the sound level is overly loud, or too quiet for that matter?

It is a balancing act because if you have worship too loud, people cannot hear themselves sing and so stop singing.  However, if you have it too soft, people can hear themselves too much and they stop singing also.  We have to get this balance right, worship leaders, because the success of your worship leading is at least partially tied in with the level of the sound, like it or not!

So when is worship too loud?  Is it when the little old lady who sits in front of the speaker complains, or is it when the guy in the back row has blood flowing from his ears? Is it when you are comfortable with it, or is it when the old man with sensitive ears turns his hearing aid down?

We know that perceived loudness does not simply depend on volume, it involves equalisation, bass levels and whether the singing can be heard.  So we reveal some secrets and show you how you can have a great volume without the complaints and people leaving the room in pain!

In so many churches the question of whether you worship too loud is a hotly debated and often highly emotional issue, and that’s why we decided to do a podcast and spend 12 minutes figuring out what constitutes too loud, and what you can do about it…

This worship leader podcast is about getting the best sound mixing and control for your worship team.  So often getting reasonable sound is a battle between the band and the sound person, but life does not have to be that stressful!  You should be on the same team, guys!  If this sounds like sound advice, then click below and listen to the sound of the worship leader podcast!
