One Systems Loudspeakers Installed at Nashville's LP Field
Nashville, Tennessee – One Systems, a leading manufacturer of professional, highly intelligible, direct weather loudspeakers, recently had its speakers installed at Nashville's L P Field as part of a complete renovation of the stadium's sound and video system. L P Field is the 69,143-seat stadium that is home to Nashville's NFL Titans, the Music City Bowl and various concerts that include the annual CMA Music Festival. Located on 105 acres across the Cumberland River from downtown Nashville, L P Field opened in 1999 and is owned by the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County.
During last summer, L P field underwent a series of renovations including the installation of two large HD video displays measuring 157 x 54 feet located on both the north and south ends of the stadium, as well as a new distributed sound system.
L P Field's reconfigured sound system includes 166 One Systems speakers: 146 x 106IM/70s, 8 x 108IM/70s and 12 x 112IM/70s. All of the speakers were installed using One Systems' stainless steel U-Brackets.
The stadium's east and west concourses have overhead cover, but are open air. The north concourse of the stadium is completely open. As such, all the speakers are exposed to a mixture of heat, cold, wind and moisture throughout the year.
The 106IM/70s and 108IM/70s are installed on the stadium's main concourses surrounding its 60 concession areas. The 112IM/70s are installed adjacent to the stadium's entrances. The system is used for live broadcasts during games, as well as all announcements from the main PA.
One Systems was recommended to L P Field's management by one of the contractors who bid on the project. Management was familiar with One Systems based on a demonstration they heard in 2011 and WJHW of Dallas, TX, the consultant for the project, approved the inclusion of One Systems speakers into the project.
The audio / video contract for the project was awarded to AVI / SPL of Columbia, MD, who supervised the installation and worked with Amprite, a local electrical contactor and installer.
"L P Field is a prime example of a multi-use, large-scale outdoor sports and entertainment venue where One Systems speakers work especially well", said One System President, Doug MacCallum. "It is always exciting to be a part of such high-profile venues."
