Dalton Academy Field

The city of Dalton, Ga, and the Dalton Public School System recently partnered to create Dalton Stadium, a multi-use field with seating for up to 3,000 attendees for various sporting events. With such capacity, the facility needed a robust sound system that would cover the field, the press box, the concessions area, restrooms and changing rooms, and the equipment areas. We were able to provide everything necessary to produce high-quality sound for the stadium.

As far as the stadium itself, we mounted full-range loudspeakers of various sizes to the press box and light posts in order to give good coverage to the field, home bleachers, and visitor's side bleachers.

The press box is a key component of the stadium, because it is from here that all announcing is done. With the expectation that the press box will be used by many different people, we needed to make everything installed there easy to use and intuitive. We put a push-button microphone on the counter for the announcer, and we also installed a wireless microphone system that is capable of having two handheld microphones and two lapel microphones working at the same time for when announcing needs to be done outside the press box, at field level.

For the home and visitor side concession stands, we installed loudspeakers with volume control mounted inside the concession area. We placed in-ceiling speakers in the changing rooms and all concession building restrooms.

In the equipment room, we installed a rack to house all necessary A/V equipment. The rack included high-powered amplifiers, a CD/media player with Bluetooth, an audio connection for various audio sources such as phones or laptops, a DSP for audio mixing and equalization, and finally power sequencing surge protection for all of the equipment.

The stadium now has reliable and effective audio with ample coverage for its expansive new field and surroundings.
