The NFL Draft Live Sound System Deployment

LD Systems specializes in live sound design for large events.  Our experienced audio engineers traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada and completed a successful live sound system deployment for C3 Presents and The NFL at The National Football League’s NFL Draft live event. The NFL Draft is an exciting experience for football fans from around the world accommodating patrons onsite for three days with NFL Team player picks conducted live on stage, on stage artists performances each night of the Draft and The NFL Draft Experience.

Combining sound design expertise and high fidelity audio equipment for a live broadcast event.

The live sound system included separate sound designs for the NFL Draft Theater and NFL Draft Red Carpet Stage. The LD Systems audio department worked with event producers to design a sound system that provided even audio coverage without compromising the appearance of the elaborate stage design. Using our extensive inventory of L-Acoustics products, we deployed several loudspeaker arrays, audio delay towers and monitor speakers uniquely positioned for complete audio coverage. The sound system included separate sound designs for the NFL Draft Theater and Red Carpet Stage.

The NFL Draft Theater location utilized 40 K2, 24 K1, 12 KS28, 2 SB18, 6 KARA, and 16 115XT HiQ all powered by LA-RAK,  LA-RAK II amplifiers. The NFL Draft Red Carpet stage sound system consisted of 16 K1, 8 K2, 2 SB18 and 12 115XT HiQ powered by 7 LA-RAKs.  Audio input and distribution was handled using Shure Axient wireless microphones, Shure PSM 1000 advanced in-ear monitoring systems, Digico SD10 and SD12-96 audio consoles.
