Rupert Neve Designed Portico 5045 Popular for Referee Mics

BUENA PARK, Calif.—The new Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5045 Primary Source Enhancer is becoming increasingly popular as an added tool for audio engineers on referee mics during sporting events, as recently witnessed by the installation of a unit at the Alamo Dome in San Antonio, Texas for the Valero Alamo Bowl. Clarity Media San Antonio installed the unit at the 66,000-seat Dome. The Alamo Dome joins other notable sports facilities where the unit has been used or are installed including Notre Dame, Northwestern, Green Bay Lambeau Field, Cowboy Stadium, Reliant Field in Houston, University of Phoenix Stadium, and UCLA at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

The request to Clarity came after a call from Ben Sturgis, Sr. Audio Visual Tech, Convention, Sports, & Entertainment Facilities, to Ben Strizu, Co-Owner, of Clarity Media Group. “Clarity had been analyzing the Dome’s sound system overall because they were having problems with their ref mics,” states Strizu. “After hearing a demo by Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, we felt the unit would fulfill the Alamo Dome’s needs.”

Once Sturgis had an opportunity to hear the unit, he was hooked. “We use the RND 5045 on referee mics because the biggest issue we were fighting was not getting enough gain out of their mics without feeding back,” states Sturgis. “After Clarity installed the unit, it was the first time we could turn down the refs’ mics as opposed to turning them up. The 5045 gave us an additional 10db of gain before feedback.” In addition to sporting events, the RND 5045 is used for public address announcements, trade shows held at the venue, and whenever handheld mics are required.

The Dome also houses a Yamaha M7CL digital console, and in the 7,000-seat Illusions Theatre located at the north end of the complex, Clarity Media installed a NEXO GEO S12 line array used as a portable system. The GEO S set up is configured with six boxes per side, PS10s for front fills, and two NXAmps (one 4×4 and one 4×1) power the entire system.
