Immaculata University Stadium Sound System

Immaculata University Stadium Sound System

System Requirements

Immaculata University’s Draper Walsh Stadium needed an upgrade to the sound system.  Most of the main loudspeakers were blown and the overall system operation was complicated.  With a short timeline, a new loudspeaker was needed to provide sound for the entire stadium while simplifying the operation.  Prior to our involvement, users needed access to an amplifier closet where they had to manually turn on a rack full of amplifiers.


System Design

Using EASE focus, we verified that using the existing poles would cover the stadium as intended.  Adding a Furman sequencer system with a remote power switch in the press box allowed for powering the downstairs amplifier rack from within the press box.

Featured Equipment
  • Community R.5MAX loudspeakers mounted on the poles
  • Community R.35-3896 loudspeaker on the front of the pressbox
  • Community ALC-1604 amplifier
  • Furman power conditioner/sequencer

Result

The new loudspeaker system provides high-level, intelligible sound for the entire stadium.  Both the stands and field are covered and the processing built into the amplifiers provide protection for overdriving the system.

Paul VI High School Stadium Sound System

Paul VI High School Stadium Sound System

System Requirements

The Paul VI High School stadium did not have a permanently installed sound system, so for games, they set up portable loudspeakers.  They needed a permanent system that would cover the home stands, field, and visitor’s stands, all from the press box, as mounting on the poles would require breaking concrete and trenching.


System Design

Using EASE, an acoustical sound system modeling program, we created a 3D model of the stadium and placed the proposed loudspeakers on the press box.  After some aiming and tweaking, we were happy with the coverage and the system was approved and ordered.

With the R2s, we have great pattern control, exceptional low-frequency response and plenty of headroom which allows the system to be clear over crowd noise.

Featured Equipment
  • Community R2 loudspeakers (various models)
  • Crown CDi amplifiers
  • Shure SLX wireless microphones
  • Furman power conditioner/sequencer

Result

The new stadium sound provides exceptional speech and music reinforcement and covers the entire stadium.  Announcements are clear over the crown noise, and music has a full-range sound.
