    To amplify the home-game atmosphere and bring the 55,000 fans closer to the on-field action, Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium at University of Louisville has chosen to install Meyer Sound’s LEO linear large-scale sound reinforcement system with the 1100-LFC low-frequency control element and SB-3F sound field synthesis loudspeakers. Selected for its power and ability to project sonic clarity and impact over long distances, the system was chosen by recently retired, long-time stadium manager K.C.

    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

    It was a double pass for optical fiber at Sunday’s NFL Pro Bowl game at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. Copper cabling took a beating due to excessive moisture buildup from the rain.  “The issue with copper wasn’t noise for a change, it was water,” said Jeff Kang with Custom Audio, Kaneohe, Hawaii, which has been providing sound reinforcement for Pro Bowl for over 10 years. Fortunately, this year, Kang had contacted FiberPlex Technologies about a MADI-to-optic conversion box for his… 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

The stadium serves as a venue not only for major sporting events, such as the Sweden vs. England association football match… View this story

    As every football fan knows, the roar of the crowd at a major game is just as important as the action on the pitch when it comes to truly experiencing the excitement of the event. With this in mind, outside broadcast specialist United chose DPA Microphones’ 5100 Mobile Surround Microphone to capture the ambience of the Amsterdam Arena when SL Benfica played Chelsea in the 2013 UEFA Europa League Final. “UEFA was adamant that the broadcast quality had to be… View this story

    Stade Francois Coty, a French football stadium in the Corsican city of Ajaccio, France, has completed audio upgrades compliant to league standards, with seven Technomad advanced audio loudspeakers covering the entire venue. Home club AC Ajaccio recently transitioned to Ligue 2, also known as Division 2 in the LFP French professional football league. The league-imposed audio upgrades required a higher measure of intelligibility and audio coverage throughout the stadium — a quality the previous audio system lacked.

    FM 97.5 is better known to Philadelphia sports fans as The Fanatic, and recent agreements with the Philadelphia 76ers and the Philadelphia Flyers gave its listeners a new reason to cheer.
