-• I am happy to recommend Brian Haines’ sound consulting business. We worked with the equipment he installed at Assembly Park Bible Camp this past summer and were very pleased with the sound in the auditorium. I’m sure Brian could be of help to you in any sound issues you may have.

Ron Held (Assemblies of God Wisconsin Northern Michigan district official)

• I’d like to highly recommend the service and expertise of Brian Haines both in the area of sound system consultation and the installation of sound systems.  The installation and tuning of speaker systems, mixing desks, and cabling that he has completed in both Colby’s Public School Hall and the Abbotsford AG Church is of a high standard while being affordable and kept within a reasonably restrictive budget.  Brian is great to work with, his enthusiasm and resourcefulness inspires people to want to grow and improve their environment.  I have no hesitation in recommending the services and resources of Brian Haines to all.

Kindest regards,
Andrew Ironside (Itinerant pastor and recording artist from Hillsongs Church and University, Sydney Australia)


• Re:  Consulting with Clarity   (Purchase/install sound system at City of Colby, Baseball field)     In the spring of 2010, the City of Colby needed to provide a new sound system for the baseball field.  While the wheels of bureaucracy can  often be cumbersome in dealing with government projects, I found Mr. Haines professional in assessing our needs and providing product information which met our particular requirements.  He took the time to answer questions and when the project was approved, the installation was done as agreed to per contract in a timely manner and with no unforeseen complications.  During the project, I found Mr. Haines to be professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with throughout the scope of work.  I am well satisfied with the success of the addition to our park system.

Sincerely,                                                                                                                                        Gayle Beisner (Chairperson – Park/Rec Committee, Councilperson – Ward 3,)  December 22, 2010

• As a rural Assembly of God pastor in Wisconsin for the past 15 years, I am well aware of the challenges that we face. Modern methods of ministry are desired in the rural church, but seem out of reach, due to cost and technical skill to pull it off. Brian Haines does a great job making quality audio/video systems for a very reasonable price, and then taking the time to teach people how to use it. When he comes for a consultation, he will give the pastor and worship leader as much time as they need to ask questions and get ideas. If you are the pastor or worship leader of a modest size church with a modest size budget, but dream of taking your worship and technology to the next level, I wholeheartedly recommend you give Brian a call.

Pastor Will Krebs (Pastor of North Ridge Church of Abbotsford, WI)

• Consulting With Clarity owner Brian Haines  and family turned Colby High School’s original and antiquated sound system in the theatre into something that students, staff, and community can now be proud of. Brian and family came to school board meetings to explain how they could upgrade the sound system at a reasonable cost without compromising the quality of sound.  Brian and family also promised to put together a sound system that would be easy to learn and manage while keeping in mind that extra features could be added in the future as needed.  The sound system has met all expectations and the school and community have thoroughly enjoyed the upgrade.

Jim Hagen  ( Colby Middle School Principal/Activities Director)

• “I met Brian when Consulting with Clarity sponsored the Worship Seminar with Andrew Ironside.  After a few minutes into a conversation with Brian, there was no doubt about his passion for worship and great sound.  I have been a church sound volunteer for many years and was frustrated by the lack of additional training available.  Since the seminar, I have had the opportunity to meet with Brian for more training.  Brian is able to explain things clearly and in a way that makes sense to the lay person.  I feel that with the knowledge and understanding I have gained, I can take my sound duties to the next level.  An added benefit has been a new level of excitement for the job.  I highly recommend Consulting with Clarity.”

Mary Williams (volunteer audio engineer, Central Assembly of God  Superior, WI)
• I am the Worship Leader at Alma Center Assembly of God. Recently Consulting With Clarity came and set up a new sound system for our church. The sound difference was amazing but not just because of the new equipment but also because Brian worked with us to understand what we now had. He trained us on the equipment and how to make ourselves better and each week we take it a step further. They continue to make themselves available for questions and praise reports on the church. Thank you Brian and the rest of the Haines family, we appreciate all you’ve done for us.

Rex Sanders, Jr. (Worship and Youth Group Leader for Alma Center Assembly of God)

• Consulting With Clarity is indeed committed to excellence. Brian and his crew recommended and installed updates to our audio and video system at New Harvest AG in a professional and timely manner. We are very pleased with the job. Having limited experience with audio/video systems ourselves, Brian personally explained both the existing and the new equipment to us. We are confident that we have a quality system and it sounds great. Brian came to us with excellent recommendations; we were not disappointed!

Pastor Jason Snapp (Pastor of New Harvest Assembly of God in Withee, WI)

• We were looking to get a new sound system for our church.  Someone gave us the name “Consulting with Clarity.”  They gave their proposal (which was well under another we had received).  Now that the system is up and running I can tell you that we are very, very pleased.  Brian and sons were easy to work with and they did a great job.   I highly recommend them for your next project.

Rev. J. Freimuth ( St. Peter Lutheran Church in Dorchester  May 26, 2011)

• ‘Consulting with Clarity’ did a professional job with a personal touch. Brian and his team delivered on everything we had hoped. He helped us know exactly what we needed and installed it for us. As a pastor, I was comforted by the fact that Brian and his team were on hand the first Sunday we used the new sound system in case there was any bugs to work out. Brian knows his stuff and seemed to genuinely care about us. I would use ‘Consulting with Clarity’ again and I would recommend them wholeheartedly.

Pastor Tom Miller, Senior Pastor of Central Assembly, Superior, WI  Dec. 12 2011

• We recently had Brian with “Consulting with Clarity” come to our church for a consultation with our sound team. He made some adjustments on our sound board that really improved the quality of our sound – I would like to add he did this by using all of our existing equipment. We are working with a limited budget so this was welcome news. He also did some training with our sound techs, on how to adjust the settings and operate our board. If you are in need of upgrading or adjusting your current sound system I would recommend Brian. He is knowledgeable, affordable, and available for questions as issues may arise.
Joe Weiers – Pastor of – Hillside Community Church – in Neillsville, WI
• We are so happy that Brian and his family could come and play for us at our wedding. They were extremely receptive to all of our ideas about how we wanted the service to flow and the songs that we wanted. They already knew most of the songs we asked them to play and were excited to learn the new songs we picked out. The Pastor of the church we were married at was also very happy to have a group come in that not only could setup and run their own sound, but stayed after the wedding to make sure all the church’s equipment got put back and setup as it was before so. We would highly recommend Brian Haines and his family to anyone that is looking for a self sufficient group to come and play for your wedding or special event!                                                                
Nick and Courtney Paul, Eagle River, WI

• Brian efficiently brought in everything for our church to host a quality concert.  He was excellent to work with, very knowledgeable, and his sound equipment was the best our sanctuary has ever seen. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for sound for their church or event.                      

Martha Scott of Grace Lutheran Church, Marshfield, WI

• I would like to thank you for your help in purchasing a sound system so the dancers could hear the music and my square dance calls.  You understood what I needed and found the speakers, mixer and cables at a very good price.  I also appreciated your low pressure sales style and your willingness to answer questions after the equipment arrived.  I will recommend Consulting With Clarity to others.
Gary Edinger, Kennan WI, square dance leader and Author of “Will to Live: A Saga of Survival”
• Brian Haines of Consulting with Clarity set up and operated our live sound stage at our 2012 Ministry Expo.  The job entailed working with multiple bands and musical acts, as well as speakers and other performers.  Our Expo is an action-packed day, with multiple things happening;  Brian had to set up, run sound checks and balance and monitor the sound for each group that performed, with a new act every 45 minutes.  He worked exceptionally well with everyone, including our headliner, national recording artist Randy Stonehill.  The sound quality was excellent, and it was a true pleasure for all involved to work with Brian.  We heard many positive comments from performers and members of the audience alike.  I highly recommend using the services of Connecting with Clarity for any event where you require professional sound services.

• Brian,

I wanted to take a minute to thank you for helping our Church reclaim the sound quality from our sound system.  The time and effort you put into making sure you left our Church sounding better than when you arrived was very much appreciated.  We had a long lived annoying buzz in the house that is no longer, we can now say good bye to the annoying feedback we had with our microphones , we now have a balanced sound system that has been properly equalized and sounds pristine.  Your guidance and recommendations are top notch and we are thankful for the time your spent with us.


Robert Posteluk, trustee and sound engineer, Center City Church, Marshfield, WI

• Consulting With Clarity provided exceptional service for the installation of my business
sound system. Brian worked with me to find the mixture of price and quality that my
business needed. I really felt he took the time to understand what I needed and then
provided me with solutions that met my needs rather than a sales quota.

My wife and I own a spa and salon with several treatment rooms that all needed a better
sound solution. Brian handled everything very professionally: from consultation, product
research, scheduling, all the way to installation and educating me on how to use it. He
even worked with my businesses crazy schedule of 8am to 9pm room usage to get the
installation done without fuss or disruption to my massage clients. While I don’t know
much about the sound business, I know customer service and Brian stands out in my opinion
as a quality and skilled provider I can trust. I fully endorse Consulting With Clarity.
My experience with them was outstanding.

Josiah Groth, Owner Back To Bliss

 • I just wanted to take a moment to tell you about the fantastic service from Consulting With Clarity.  We used Consulting With Clarity to install and setup all of our audio/visual equipment for the new Hansen-Schilling Funeral Home in Marshfield, Wisconsin.  They completed the job and were able to comply with all of our difficult requirements with ease.  The thing that impressed me most though was the service even after the sale and install.  They stood by their work and products, made themselves available to train everyone on the systems, and took care of any problems right away.  I would recommend Consulting With Clarity to any business with audio/visual needs.

• Consulting with Clarity is an affordable, tech-saavy consult and solution to a church’s audio engineering needs. Brian always picks up the phone when we call. We have been and continue to be most impressed.
Pastor Zach Burris, North Ridge Church | Stratford

• You were professional and easy to work with as you provided quality sound for the band that played as a part of our event. It was incredible to learn that you did everything digitally and the sound quality was top notch. Thank you for making this an excellent evening! We will be in touch to work together in the future.

Jeff Tarras Area representative (North Central Wisconsin)  Fellowship of Christian Athletes

• Brian came out to our church to access our our location of speakers which was a center cluster that had many dead spots in our sanctuary . After reviewing our setup he made recommendations to improve our system. The center cluster of three speakers were replaced and relocated with two speakers that have incredible coverage and sound quality. He also found a wiring issue with our sub woofers from the original installation. I highly  recommend Consulting with Clarity.

Per Bob Barnum sound Tech. at Conover Evangelical Free Church.

• Brian with Consulting with Clarity was very knowledgeable and easy to work with.  Our new video system, with remote controls, was completely installed in our Sanctuary within a matter of days.  Upon completion of the project it was immediately evident that the system exceeded our expectations.  Between Brian and Nick, any and all questions were answered, and we rest assured that with any future questions they are just a phone call away.
Thank you for your dedication to serving the Lord with a cheerful heart!

• Consulting with clarity did such a superb job in my chiropractic office.  I have an old building and that can create many problems when trying to do wiring and placement of a sound system.  Brian is easy to work with and I really appreciate that he stays within the estimated budget, also, the job was very professionally installed and he was willing to work around patient visit times.  I would recommend consulting with clarity for any one in need of a great sound system.
Dr. Patti Schumacher, Marshfield, WI
• I would recommend Brian from consulting with clarity for all your sound and audio needs. Our church was having buzzing and other issues, we contacted Brian and he came to do a diagnosis. He was able to do a temporary fix. Then help me put together a need list and a dream list. With no budget but a list with needs and dreams and a reason why and prices that didn’t break the bank a member from church was able to say yes go for it. Installation was done between our needs and training at our praise practice. Our fist sunday we had many compliments on the clarity of the sound  all I can say is thanks.
Mark Miller, New Hope Community Church, Wausau, WI
• Brian Haines does an exceptional job with Consulting with Clarity to analyze what could be improved in your sound system and to deliver a solution that works great and is cost effective.  He helped our church improve our sound dramatically at a price that was in our budget and expanded our sound capabilities to meet our needs as we requested.  He made the process smooth and supported us throughout the whole transition.  He is certainly honest and trustworthy.  I’m confident Brian can design and implement an audio solution that will meet your needs as well.
Jonathan Carlson, Hillside Assembly of God, Gillett, WI
• Brian Haines and Consulting With Clarity brought professionalism and a great amount of knowledge to our much needed sound issues. Our team was able to learn quickly from him and appreciated his kind and patient approach. Brian is extremely knowledgeable and knows his equipment well. We are confident that we made the right choice in working with Consulting With Clarity. Highly Recommended!
Aaron Ellis Worship Leader East Gate Alliance Church Marshfield WI
“Fantastic group to work with.  They understand the needs of an educational facility and deliver ideas and equipment at a cost far below competitors.  Brian and CWC really gave us the “bang for our buck.”  They delivered a high quality system at about ½ the cost of what other companies quoted. Installation and workmanship were top notch.  I highly recommend CWC if you are looking for sound systems in an educational setting.”
Bob Houts, Superintendent of Owen-Withee (WI) public schools
Brian is an expert in this field and he went above and beyond what was necessary to provide our church with amazing sound. Weeks after the install we could still call him to get assistance, which is far above what was required. Would HIGHLY recommend.

I highly recommend Consulting with Clarity to anyone planning on installing or upgrading their music system. Brian’s attention to detail, ease of explaining the system, and prompt service was outstanding. And, you can’t beat his prices. Anyone out there from church’s to funeral homes, feel free to call me for a personal recommendation.

Brian Haines of Consulting With Clarity installed and positioned new speakers in our Worship Center in October 2014. Recently we experienced some issues with the original console at the church and had Brian purchase and install a new X32 Behringer audio console in September 2016.  Brian and his crew came, spent the day installing the equipment, and trained our audio tech team.  Brian is not only a tech, he is a Worship Leader and blessed our Worship Team with some much appreciated guidance and support during his visit.  What a blessing it was to have Brian, Charlotte, and 2 of their children come, install, and train us at Conover Evangelical Free Church (CEFC)!  I highly recommend Consulting With Clarity for your audio needs!
Pastor Jeff Hendrychs (Associate Pastor of Worship & Discipleship) Conover Evangelical Free Church, Conover WI
“Brian has been an enormous help to our growing church. On multiple occasions he has swooped in and completely solved our sound woes. Even as a fairly technical user myself, I am impressed by his depth of understanding of the products he supports and sells as well as the engineering tasks and challenges presented by each situation. He recently helped us sound amazing in our new venue as a church: a school gym. We even got complements on the sound … in a gym! Brian has been there along the whole way, from ordering which products we need, to tweaking them in the final space. And I trust his expertise will be there whenever we have questions.”
– Adam Schnaare
Worship Pastor @ The Mill Church  Stratford and Edgar WI
Brian’s expert knowledge of sound equipment for our church saved us A LOT of money – which made it possible to correct our many audio issues!  We now have a cutting edge digital sound board that was very affordable for our small church, but was also a great high quality option.  We were getting ready to replace all of our microphones because we thought they were broken…they are now functioning better than ever! Brian was easy to work with, very affordable, and offered a fabulous product on top of it all – this company is a “WIN, WIN” situation no matter how you look at!  Thank you Brian and Consulting with Clarity!
Pastor Gary Holloway Grace Baptist Church Marshfield, WI

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the great job that you did for us at Zion Lutheran Church in Readfield.  Everything you put on your bid and more was accomplished.  I would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking at updating or installing a new sound system.  You were very professional and timely in everything that you did. 
Again, thanks for a job well done.

I can’t say enough great stuff about Brian Haines with Consulting with Clarity out of Colby, WI. If you need anything sound, video, computer or hearing impaired wise he is your guy. Brian and his family truly show God’s love through their Install/Integrating company. He flew into Louisiana on Monday afternoon and is flying out Thursday morning- in that amount of time he pulled 900 ft of Cat6, soldered connections and pulled wire under the stage, installed an X32/ S32 and new computer…plus he hung 4-70″ tvs and ran the system to go with it (I probably left something out)…He is like a hurricane of force!! I highly recommend his services!!!
Heath Watson, Worship director, Sherwood Baptist Church, Baton Rouge, LA

-Consulting with Clarity installed sound equipment in both our gymnasiums, and for our football field. The sound quality is superb in all these locations, and the personal support has exceeded our expectations. Consulting with Clarity has truly been committed to providing us and our community with the best possible sound for our events. I would highly recommend Consulting with Clarity for any of your sound needs.

You are a hero at our Church. We are forever thankful. God bless your ministry.

(Community United Church installed a new sound system and hearing loop system. Members were able to hear the message and were grateful.)
-Brian Haines was great to work with for the hearing loop in our new church building. He designed a great system, communicated well and took care of the details of installation. Everyone that uses the system tell me how much better they can hear the sermon, announcements and the praise music.
Bill Hall First, Baptist Medford WI

The hearing loop and audio improvements were everything Brian and his crew promised. They are very professional, personal and affordable. Brian makes sure you understand how the system works and verifies that it meets your needs. Several of our members at church commented on the improvements by Consulting With Clarity as greatly need.

Thank you again, Brian.

I would like to highly recommend Brian Haines with Consulting With Clarity. He is very good to work with, he helped us build a sound system to meet the needs of our Church and helped us to stay within our budget. We now have a system that produces a clear, high quality sound with room to grow. Brian is an honest, caring person that cares about his customers and goes out of his way to help.

Stanley Koenig   Salem Lutheran Church Barron WI. LCMS

-I am very pleased to recommend Brian Haines and Consulting with Clarity for work with your church’s audio visual needs.  We are a medium sized Lutheran church with a traditional worship style.  Brian was excellent to work with and understood our needs as a congregation.  During the pandemic we had set up Livestream on our own, and while it was passable, it was so much better with the new set up and equipment that Brian provided.  Our video is so much clearer and versatile and the audio is now very clear with good volume.  He also completely redid our sound system for those worshiping in person, with very nice results.  He was easy to work with, resourceful and very willing to work to provide just what we needed.  I would recommend his services to any congregation.  He provides excellent service at a very fair and reasonable price.
