Daktronics-Sportsound And JBL Loudspeakers Provide A Bear Of An Audio System At Washington-Grizzly Stadium

Audio integration firm Daktronics-Sportsound recently upgraded the sound system at Washington-Grizzly Stadium at the University of Montana, home to the University’s Division 1 football team. The new system at the stadium features JBL VLA line arrays and PD Series loudspeakers.

Home to the Montana Grizzlies college football team of the Big Sky Conference, Washington-Grizzly Stadium opened in 1986 and has undergone several expansions since then. With the most recent upper deck expansion of 2,000 seats, the Stadium currently holds 25,203.

Daktronics-Sportsound installed 12 VLA601-WRC 3-way, full-range, weatherized line array loudspeakers, arranged in two columns of six each, mounted to the end zone scoreboard. The system also includes four PD764-WRC weatherized loudspeakers. A total of 30 Crown XTi amplifiers power the system.

“Because they’re specifically designed for permanent installation, the VLA line arrays have been an ideal loudspeaker choice for a number of our recent stadium projects,? said Doug Dodge of Daktronics-Sportsound. “They’re highly controllable while providing a ton of power, and they have performed exceptionally at the Washington-Grizzly Stadium.?

“The installation of the system went like clockwork and the incorporation of the speaker cabinets into our existing scoreboard structure worked very well from both a functional and aesthetic standpoint,? said Chuck Maes, Associate Athletic Director for the University of Montana.
