JBL VLA Line Arrays Hit A Home Run At Harbor Park

At Harbor Park in Norfolk, Virginia, home to Minor League Baseball’s Norfolk Tides, a new JBL VLA line array system gave the team’s stadium a sonic refresher that both vastly improved the sound on the field and did so very cost-effectively. Two clusters, each containing six JBL VLA 901 speakers with 90-degree horizontal horn coverage patterns offer fans exceptional sound and high intelligibility while staying within both the team’s budget and the physical limitations of the park.

“It was challenging because we could only work within the space that was already there,? said Tom “T? Brockenbrough, Project Manager for Onyx AudioVisual, the systems integrator for the project. Due to budget constraints, the system design and installation teams replacing the PA system were required to use the same sofitted set-backs in the outfield wall of Harbor Park, which was completed in 1993.
