One Systems Speakers Amplifies Fun at New Orleans Saints’ Champions Square

Nashville, Tennessee – When the New Orleans Saints’ newest tailgating epicenter, Champions Square, decided to outfit their 60,000 square foot plaza with a sound system, they chose products from One Systems, a leading manufacturer of direct weather loudspeakers. The Solomon Group of New Orleans performed the technical system design and Interstate Electronics of Harahan, Louisiana, installed the twenty-four (24) 212IMs, eighteen (18) 112IMs and ten (10) 212Sub-W’s subwoofers.

The Solomon Group chose One Systems speakers based on sound quality, weatherproofing and price. The square, which holds approximately 8,000 fans, is a prime example of a high-noise sports and live music venue requiring exceptionally intelligible speakers that perform well for both music and spoken word applications. One Systems’ patented Equivalent Throat horn/driver technology and high-output Inside/Only woofers made the choice easy for Solomon Group partner Stephen Fink. “There was a need to incorporate different voice settings depending on usage. more

Advanced Martin Audio Cinema System At New £35m Aylesbury Theater

When Northern Light won a competitive bid to provide an advanced technical infrastructure for the new £35 million Aylesbury Waterside Theater, the company set out to design a fully-integrated system that was versatile, reconfigurable and able to carry out remote system diagnostics over a LAN via the resident PC.

Evenly dispersed sound was of paramount importance, since Aylesbury has three audience tiers (including fixed-seating balcony and upper balcony levels) and optional ground floor seating wagons to enable the 1200-seat auditorium to convert into a larger 1800-capacity standing space.

Thus Northern Light project manager Simon Cooper decided to base his sound reinforcement solution around Martin Audio’s purpose-designed Wavefront theater systems.
