Audio integration firm Daktronics-Sportsound recently upgraded the sound system at Washington-Grizzly Stadium at the University of Montana, home to the University’s Division I football team.
The new system at the stadium features JBL Professional VLA line arrays as well as PD Series loudspeakers.
Washington-Grizzly Stadium opened in 1986 and has undergone several expansions. With the most recent upper deck expansion of 2,000 seats, capacity is currently 25,203.
Daktronics-Sportsound installed 12 VLA601-WRC three-way, full-range, weatherized line array loudspeakers, arranged in two columns of six each, mounted to the end zone scoreboard.
The system also includes four PD764-WRC weatherized loudspeakers. A total of 30 Crown Audio XTi amplifiers power the system.
“Because they’re specifically designed for permanent installation, the VLA line arrays have been an ideal loudspeaker choice for a number of our recent stadium projects,” said Doug Dodge of Daktronics-Sportsound. “They’re highly controllable while providing a ton of power, and they have performed exceptionally at the Washington-Grizzly Stadium.”
“The installation of the system went like clockwork and the incorporation of the loudspeaker cabinets into our existing scoreboard structure worked very well from both a functional and aesthetic standpoint,” said Chuck Maes, Associate Athletic Director for the University of Montana.
