TROY, ALABAMA: Located in southeastern Alabama, Veterans Memorial Stadium is home to the Troy University Trojans. Over the decades, a progression of additions and upgrades raised it up from a glorified grandstand to its current capacity of 30,000 fans. Ever on the lookout for improvements, the school contracted A/V provider, All Pro Sound of Pensacola Florida, who recently revamped the stadium’s sound system with Danley’s Jericho Horn, the JH-90 (a.k.a. the J1). The sound system went from great to fantastic, and now delivers reference-monitor fidelity to every seat in the horseshoe-shaped bowl at 6 dB over the previous system using just a single JH-90 that is positioned behind the upper portion of the scoreboard!

Partly as a consequence of its history, Veterans Memorial Stadium has a few unique features that affected the design of its sound system. Most notably, its scoreboard more

PARIS, FRANCE – JUNE 2011: The Gare de l’Est is a train station that connects Paris to Germany, Russia, Switzerland, and other points abroad via high-speed rail, as well as serving as a hub for the Paris Metro. Built in 1849 and with significant additions, Gare de l’Est is one of the oldest and one of the largest train stations in Paris. But despite its age and historical significance (it was from Gare de l’Est that legions of French troops went to the Western fronts of both World Wars), the train station melds old and new elements to form an aesthetic that is strikingly contemporary. Recently, SNCF (France’s railway company) hired United Kingdom- and France-based Sound Directions to update its ticket sales area with sound reinforcement to deliver information and revenue-generating advertisements to waiting customers. Sound Directions relied on a Symetrix Jupiter more

ASPEN, COLORADO – JUNE 2011: For ski bums, well-heeled tycoons, and eccentric celebrities alike, Aspen, Colorado represents the perfect alignment of geology and the human passion for snow, speed, and splendor. Off the slopes, the idyllic town caters to the recreational proclivities of its unique visitors, for whom high-class food and drink are a natural part of the good life. Therefore, when the upscale Hotel Jerome and the Aspen-posh restaurant Silver Queen approached Colorado-based A/V designer and integrator Halcyon Productions with woes of ailing and difficult-to-control sound systems, co-owner Heath Manning prescribed Ashly Audio’s ne24.24M modular DSP together with the incredibly easy-to-use WR-5 wall mount remote control. The cost-effective units sound great and provide an appropriately simple level of control for the often harried staff of both establishments.

“User control is a critical issue in the commercial atmosphere of a banquet hall, restaurant, or bar, where the staff are more
