Joe W. Brown Park’s Post-Katrina Restoration includes Community R-Series Loudspeakers

Joe W. Brown Memorial Park in Eastern New Orleans is a 135-acre park with an activities center, in-door heated pool, ball fields, picnic shelters, play equipment and a large nature center. After sustaining substantial damage during Hurricane Katrina, Joe W. Brown Park was restored with help from Nike, the Allstate Sugar Bowl and the Brees Dream Foundation. As part of the restoration, the city of New Orleans added Victory Field, a new football stadium, and restored an existing track and field facility.

Both facilities include new sound systems, designed and installed by Technical Services Group of Baton Rouge with Community R-Series Loudspeaker Systems. “You really can’t go wrong with Community R-Series,” said Patrick Meek of Technical Services Group. “They’re built to project crisp, intelligible sound and withstand any weather conditions.”

Meek chose Community R2 loudspeakers for Victory Field and Community R.5s for the smaller Track and Field. Powered by QSC amplifiers and using an Ashly Protea DSP, both designs have the loudspeakers on top of the press box covering the home bleachers, field and cross-field area which includes visitor seating at Victory Field.

The facilities are open to many different groups so Meek designed both systems to be user-friendly. He placed a handheld and headset microphone inside each press box and added wireless mics for the referees. “The city officials were very pleased with the systems,” Meek said, “they’re easy to use and they sound great!”
