Sacramento, CA (November 25, 2009)—One Systems loudspeakers were recently installed in Gerety Stadium, home to football and soccer games at Center High School in Sacramento, CA.
The school had been hanging on to its outdated, voice-only sound reinforcement system for years, and tapped Advance Sound and Electronics of Sacramento for a new installation. Gerety Stadium, which seats 3,000, is an example of a high-noise sports environment requiring speakers that can withstand the elements and handle both music and spoken applications.
Advance Sound and Electronics chose One Systems speakers. “These speakers sound great, they are more powerful than we ever expected and the mounting accessories really helped the installation along, “ says Bob Becker, Senior AV Consultant of Advance Sound and Electronics.
The installation includes both 112IM and 108IM speakers, each pole mounted throughout the stadium, with four specially mounted to cell phone towers. The 112IMs utilize a single 12” I/O woofer and a large format ET driver coupled to a fully rotatable high frequency horn. Two 112IM speakers on the home team side, along with two 108IMs on the visitor team side were installed to produce sound strictly for the playing field. The remaining speakers are strategically placed around the stadium.
“With the previous sound system, neighbors a half-mile from the stadium could hear the game and we could not have that happen with this installation. With the new system, the spillover into the residential areas is minimal. One Systems met and exceeded all of our needs and expectations; we are very pleased with the results. More important, the school is pleased,” says Becker.
