Community Soups Up Richmond International Raceway

Richmond International Raceway is arguably one of the most popular racetracks in motorsports. “America’s Premier Short Track,” as it is known, is home to the annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series, as well as a full calendar of other events. With most races held under the lights, the 94,000-seat venue is outfitted with the latest in high-tech lighting, signage and sound, including a unique system of rear-firing loudspeakers from Community.

The track is covered by an assortment of Community WET and R-Series loudspeakers, mounted on poles behind the grandstands at a height of 25 to 30 meters. The system, designed by Wrightson, Johnson, Haddon & Williams (WJHW) and installed by Parsons Electric, is powered by Lab Gruppen amplification and utilizes Lake Systems DSP to provide delay and processing via a Dante network controller and fiber-optic digital distribution network that streamlines control of audio and video throughout the entire venue. As WJHW’s Jack McCallum explains, the rear-mounted system provides improved coverage and better sightlines for the audience and television cameras.

Selected for their superior weather resistance, powerful output, exceptional coverage and high intelligibility, Community WET and R-Series loudspeakers are a popular choice for many of the nation’s racetracks, sporting arenas and other venues where power and performance are key.
