Dolphin Stadium Reaches For The Clouds

FOH Staff • News • September 13, 2006

MIAMI–Miami's Dolphin Stadium is arguably one of professional sports' more active venues and part of the continued success of this privately funded arena can be credited to owner Wayne Huizenga's strong advocacy of regular upgrades and renovations, a program that has helped to maintain the stadium's first-class amenities and state-of-the-art technical infrastructure, including a recent upgrade to Community Professional speakers in the interior sound systems. The most recent renovation projects have included the addition of three new Daktronics HD scoreboards, including the largest of its kind at 56 feet high and 142 feet wide, and a complete overhaul of the stadium's interior sound systems. A total of 900 Cloud 4 high-performance ceiling speakers from Chester, PA-based Community Professional cover the executive suites, club level and press box areas.

"We chose the Cloud Series because it sounds great and offers nice wide coverage in an exceptionally small package. It was also quick and easy to install, which was an important consideration due to the fast-track nature of the project, with only four weeks from proposal arrival to completion," remarks Scott Pearson, Senior Vice President of Pro Sound and Video, Inc. The Miami-based systems integrators also installed a pair of Yamaha DM1000 V2 digital audio consoles as part of the stadium's control room renovation, as well as Yamaha's DME64 DSP signal processing. The interior audio systems are powered by QSC amplification.

"The Cloud Series speakers were an important component in upgrading the interior audio systems, particularly with regard to emergency communications," Pearson continues. "The emergency announcement system in any venue of this size needs to be both highly dependable and exceptionally intelligible, and the Community speakers really fit the bill."
