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

Community R-Series Part of New Stadium’s Powerful Audio System

Meadowlands Concourse

R-Series Installed at Meadowlands Concourse

For more than three decades, the Meadowlands has been a part of life for New York area football fans. When plans were begun to replace the aging arena, some fans were surprised to learn that, rather than a modern domed structure, the new stadium would be built in much the same traditional open-bowl style as the old one.

But while the aerial view of the New Meadowlands Stadium is reminiscent of the original Meadowlands, the similarities stop there. The new stadium is bigger and better in every way, including a host of powerful new A/V and broadcast technologies. With more than 2,000 HD monitors, four massive HD video replay boards, and cutting-edge sound and broadcast systems, the New Meadowlands is truly a technological gem.

One of the more acoustically challenging areas in the stadium is the concession zone, covered by a series of Community R.5 two-way full-range loudspeakers. more
