Arizona State University
Arizona State University is doing a multi-phase upgrade of its football venue, Sun Devils Stadium. The system needed to deliver considerable sound pressure levels, and durability was a major concern because the university’s location near Phoenix is subject to major adverse weather conditions, including dust, high wind, extreme heat, and powerful rainstorms. Furthermore, the new system needed be able to repeatedly adapt to changing coverage during the stadium’s phased upgrades. The university wanted a proven, reliable solution.
Sound Image and WJHW were hired to co-design the system. They agreed on an EAW ADAPTive™ system based on Anya modular arrays to provide customized, precisely controlled, adaptable coverage. For powerful long-throw capabilities with broadband pattern control, the two firms chose EAW QX564i three-way trapezoidal enclosures.
