Yes. The way our system was designed, there's a DSP device between the mixer and the power amps. In addition to the equalization, it also acts as a programmable audio distribution box. (It used to be a Crown, but it was replaced, I don't remember the brand that's in there now.) For example, it's the box that switches the chapel audio into the gym when the doors are opened. We were given our own XLR (balanced) line-level input into that box and the programming is such that our audio is fed everywhere (regardless of the position of the doors) except for the amp that feeds the choir speakers.

Interesting. In addition to the podium and sacrament table mic, we have 4 mic jacks, but they feed two inputs on the mixer - in effect the building wiring forms a "Y" cable. You can either use the two mics in the choir loft or the two on the sides of the stand. But if you try to use both at the same time you may find the performance isn't what you'd expect since the jacks are "Y" together. IIRC, the automatic mic mixer they used only has 4 inputs, so you might check as see if any of your jacks are "Y"ed.

It would be good to make a list. The FM group in my area has to fly out someone for the setup. Needless to say, the FM group batches all the audio work in the area to make the best use of the tech's time.
