    Built for the 2004 Men’s World Ice Hockey Championships, the O2 Arena is home to the HC Slavia Praha and HC Lev Praha ice hockey teams and also hosts a range of other sporting and corporate events and concerts. The venue needed to replace its existing PA system installed 10 years ago, a point source system that was, by the venue’s own admission, under-specified and under-powered.  The brief required a complete new PA/VA system to provide information and emergency announcements… View this story

    Dancefloor, s.r.o., a Czech Republic distributor and integrator, recently completed the installation of Community Professional loudspeakers based audio systems in two venues for the town of Znojmo, located in the South Moravian Region of the Czech Republic. The first venue was the Winter Stadium, home of the Orli Znojmo hockey club.  The 6,000+ seat Winter Stadium is a multi-purpose facility that had long suffered with poor sound levels and intelligibility, lacking the ability to inform and involve visitors and produce… View this story

    Himmelstalundshallen is an indoor arena in Norrköping, Sweden that is home to the HC Vita Hasten ice hockey team. The 4,480-seat facility also hosts concerts and other sporting events. The oval-shaped arena opened in 1977 and even then its audio system would hardly be mistaken for state of the art—making it overdue for an upgrade by Sound contractor Micab under the direction of installation specialist Mikael Bergvall. The arena is the largest in Sweden to install Harman’s Crown DCi Series… View this story

    Located in Eastern Kigali, the Stade Amahoro is the largest stadium in Rwanda. The multi-purpose venue hosts major sporting events and concerts throughout the year. It also provides the country with a place to congregate for all-important football matches and public meetings. In 2011 the government embarked upon a multi-year renovation to the stadium which will expand seating from 30,000 to 50,000 by 2016.  As a part of the renovation, the stadium required a permanent full range audio system for… View this story

    The Cougars football team of Washington State University plays all of their home games in 33,500-seat Martin Stadium. Recent additions to the stadium necessitated relocating the scoreboard to the opposite end zone, and that in turn inspired a full upgrade to Martin Stadium’s sound reinforcement system. Three Danley Sound Labs J3-64 Jericho Horns, two J4-31 Jericho Horns, and four TH-812 “Rock Monster” subwoofers now fill Martin Stadium with high-fidelity sound. Washington State University called in Anthony James Partners of Richmond,… View this story

    Sweden has a new national stadium in the Friends Arena in Solna (near Stockholm). The core of the sound reinforcement system is an XLVC line array system from Electro-Voice. The 65,000-seater stadium, designed in accordance with the most modern precepts and equipped with a retractable roof, was opened at the end of last year after three years of construction. The stadium serves as a venue not only for major sporting events, such as the Sweden vs. England association football match… View this story

    When Grand Canyon University’s Antelopes men’s and women’s basketball teams joined the Western Athletic Conference this summer and upgraded to Division I, GCU Arena was in need of a sound system retrofit worthy of the new division level. To accommodate, GCU turned to the local Phoenix office of Clearwing Productions, which provided two independent L-Acoustics ARCS WIDE and KARA loudspeaker systems for the 5,000-seat multipurpose venue. Installed in late June, the arena’s fixed audio system for athletic events, commencement ceremonies… View this story

    The sound is ear-splitting: the howl of race tuned engines vying with each other to strip paint by SPL alone from the concrete walls of the long U-shaped arena at Tierp, purpose-built on an old military airfield in central Sweden. The brainchild of Lief Andréasson, this derelict patch of perfectly level wasteland has been turned into one of the most modern drag racing arenas in the world - with a host of other purposes planned - 2.51km (1.56 miles) of… View this story

    Beaver Stadium, home to Penn State University’s Nittany Lions football team, is one of the largest in the country with a capacity of almost 107,000. In fact, it is the second-largest stadium in the Western Hemisphere. The stadium has expanded six times in its history and recently, systems contractor Clair Brothers upgraded Beaver Stadium’s sound system with the installation of more than 140 Harman JBL loudspeakers to improve its performance in a number of coverage areas. “We had already replaced… View this story
