Meyer Sound SB-3F sound field synthesis loudspeakers were installed at Levi’s Stadium to provide coverage in the stadium’s upper deck. San Francisco, CA (February 8, 2016)—Pro audio is a crucial part of any major sporting event, and yesterday’s Super Bowl 50 between the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos was no exception. Whether it was the mics that captured Lady Gaga belting the National Anthem and losing quarterback Cam Newton’s scant 87-word post-game interview, or the massive PA of Levi’s Stadium that helped bring the Coldplay/Beyoncé/Bruno Mars halftime show to the thousands in attendance, pro audio made the day. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Meyer Sound (Berkeley, CA, across the Golden Gate Bridge) was involved in live sound for both the venue and various festivities leading up to the big game.
Meyer Sound’s technical team worked with ATK Audiotek of Valencia, CA to rig SB-1 parabolic long-throw sound beams and SB-3F sound field synthesis loudspeakers at Levi’s Stadium to provide coverage in the stadium’s upper deck.
Meyer Sound’s Leo Family of line array loudspeakers also supported Metallica’s show at AT&T Park on Saturday, and covered the crowd at Project Nightclub on Pier 70 for performances by Dave Matthews Band, Pharrell Williams and Red Hot Chili Peppers on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, respectively.
In addition, longtime fans at the San Francisco Symphony experienced Meyer Sound’s newest product— the Leopard linear sound reinforcement system—in two evenings of big-game orchestral celebrations at Davies Symphony Hall.
The systems at AT&T Park, Pier 70, and Davies Symphony Hall were supplied by Martinez, CA.-based ProMedia/Ultra Sound.
