Electro Acoustics Installs HARMAN’s JBL VLA Line Arrays At University Of North Texas’ Newly Constructed APOGEE Stadium

APOGEE Stadium at the University of North Texas features an audio system comprised of JBL VLA line arrays.

NORTHRIDGE, California – At the epicenter of the University of North Texas’ “Mean Green Village” outside of campus, Fort Worth, Texas-based Electro Acoustics has outfitted the newly constructed APOGEE Stadium with HARMAN’s JBL VLA line arrays. Designed by Gary White of Wrightson, Johnson, Haddon & Williams, Inc., it was important for the PA system to provide high output, high clarity and immense power.

The 30,850-person capacity APOGEE Stadium features a main scoreboard system comprising eight JBL VLA901 line array loudspeakers, combined with eight VLA601 loudspeakers, each split four to each side. Three additional VLA901H and four VLA601H loudspeakers round out the scoreboard sound system. Installed throughout the stadium for additional PA support are 74 Control® 26CT ceiling speakers and 18 Control 30 outdoor monitor speakers.

“JBL’s VLA line arrays provide the power and reliability the client required in such a demanding venue,” stated Chris Jordan, president of Electro-Acoustics. “The speakers are perfect for an outdoor environment. We focused on providing a loud system that could withstand any inconvenient weather. The VLA loudspeakers are performing exactly as they were designed.”

Crown amplifiers power APOGEE Stadium’s sound system, which also features BSS processing. The entire system is controlled through HARMAN’s HiQnet System Architect™.

To help make certain construction of the stadium was completed on time, Electro Acoustics designed, built, tested and tweaked the entire system in its studio–an important strategy to ensure the safety and structural integrity of the construction site.

“The speakers were easily rigged and time was the only challenge when dealing with the new construction of APOGEE,” Jordan continued. “UNT was our first major install of VLA line arrays and we are very proud of the outcome. The stadium sounds amazing. The clients received exactly what they expected, on time and on budget.”
