Highland High School Stadium Sound System

System Requirements

The new sound system had to provide sound for the entire stadium, which included new bleachers that are much wider than the previous set.  Additionally, the school wanted to eliminate renting equipment for graduation and needed a system that could provide sound reinforcement for this event.


System Design

Using EASE Focus, we designed a new press box sound system to provide coverage for the entire stadium.

Featured Equipment:

    • Community R.5-94Z, R.5HP, and R.15COAX Loudspeakers
    • QSC and Crown Amplifiers
    • QSC TouchMix digital mixer with iPad Control
    • Shure Wireless Microphone System
    • RF Venue Antenna Distribution System
    • Remote audio inputs located at the track for use during pep rallies and graduation

Result

The new sound system, which was used for the 50th-anniversary celebration, provides high-quality speech and music reinforcement for the entire stadium.  The iPad control and field jacks allow the staff to run the sound for graduation without having to rent a system.

Winslow High School Gym Sound System

Equipment list:

(8) Community R.5-94TZ Loudspeakers for the bleachers.

(8) Community R.35-3896 Loudspeakers for the floor/court.

(2) Community IS6-215 dual 15″ subwoofers.

(1) QSC CXD4.5 amplifier.

(1) QSC PLD4.5 amplifier.

(1) Rane HAL digital signal processor with 7″ touch screen.

(2) Shure BLX handheld wireless microphones.

The new sound provides coverage for the entire gymnasium and is used daily for gym classes, sporting events, and pep rallies.

Winslow High School Stadium Sound System

Winslow High School Stadium Sound System

System Requirements

Winslow High School needed their stadium sound system upgraded to provide better coverage, including on the field and in the visitor’s stand, as well as new amplifiers and head-end equipment.


System Design

Using EASE Focus, we designed a new press box sound system to provide coverage for the entire stadium.

Featured Equipment:

  • Community R.5-96MAX loudspeakers.
  • Community R.35-3896 loudspeaker.
  • Community ALC-1604 amplifier.
  • Crown XTi4002 amplifier.
  • Denon DN410X rack-mounted mixer.

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.

System Requirements

After the successful installation of their stadium sound system, Allentown High School’s baseball team hired JD Sound and Video to install a new outdoor sound system for their field.  The new baseball field sound system had to provide sound for the 1st and 3rd base sides, as well as onto the field.


System Design
