HUSKY STADIUM

Project Duration: 2012-2013

The University of Washington selected us to install their current sound system when they expanded and renovated their existing stadium in 2011. This system features 79 JBL VLA and PD series boxes arranged in 16 custom steel hanging structures, supplemented by an additional 60 smaller format JBL speakers at 30 balcony edge mounting positions. The steel structures were fabricated and the speakers were mounted in them at our facility in Pittsburgh, PA. Fabricating the structure and mounting the speakers on the ground allows us to accurately set the firing angle of the speakers. This means even coverage as well as time saved on site since the construction crews need only to fasten the clusters with a few bolts instead of hanging each speaker separately. Also, for this job we implemented a unique fiber-optic AES3 distribution network. We designed and fabricated the actual conversion units ourselves in order to minimize jitter; we were able to produce units with lower jitter than any other unit on the market. This allowed us to tune system delays accurately to within 1 millisecond increments. This is one of the loudest college stadiums in the US.
