LAMBEAU FIELD NEW HOME FOR DANLEY GENESIS HORNS

© 2011 Getty Images

GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN – NOVEMBER 2011: It would be hard to overstate the cultural significance of Lambeau Field. Set in a mid-sized city in eastern Wisconsin, the 73,000-seat “Frozen Tundra” is home to the reigning NFL champion Green Bay Packers. Season tickets to Lambeau Field have been sold out for over half a century, and despite repeated seating capacity expansions, the average wait time for the 81,000 desperate souls on the season ticket waiting list is thirty years. In addition to the high drama of “regular” Packers football, Lambeau Field hosted the 1967 “Ice Bowl,” where -15-degree air (-45 wind chill) provided a merciless backdrop for a contest that would have been historic at any temperature. As part of an ongoing commitment to ensure that game day lives up to its reputation, the Packers recently heeded pleas to improve stadium sound. A new distributed system, based on Danley Sound Labs’ revolutionary Genesis Horn, Synergy Horn, and Tapped Horn loudspeaker technologies, now provides clarity, intelligibility, and punch that has exceeded all expectations.
