One of the Nation’s Oldest Stadiums Gets an Audio Makeover

Philadelphia, PA – Opened in 1895, the University of Pennsylvania’s Franklin Field has been designated by the NCAA as the oldest stadium still operating for football games. The stadium boasts a long list of history-making events, including the site of the nation’s first scoreboard (1895), the nation’s first two-tiered stadium (1922), the first football radio broadcast (WIP, 1922), the first football telecast (PhilCo, 1939) and Vince Lombardi’s only NFL playoff loss (1960).

The University recently upgraded Franklin Field’s aging sound system with a new system based around R-Series weather-resistant loudspeakers from Community Professional Loudspeakers. As Chris Dietze of Yeadon, PA-based Clear Sound Inc. explains, the Community R-Series weather-resistant loudspeakers were simply the best response to the stadium’s challenges. “We’ve seen Community R-Series in sporting facilities, amusement parks and cruise ships all over the world, in some of the most brutal climates, and we have total confidence in their reliability,” more
