LD Systems Integrates L-acoustics K2 as part of The Alamodome’s Massive $60M Renovation Project
The Alamodome, the City of San Antonio’s huge 65,000-seat multipurpose facility, is used to host football, basketball, soccer, hockey, baseball and other events. But over the years, the sound requirements for contemporary collegiate and professional sports have only increased as the venue’s original sound system was not keeping up with the times.
As part of a recent $60 million renovation project to modernize the venerable venue and make it more competitive with other top North American stadiums, the City of San Antonio called upon Dallas-based technology design firm Idibri to design a new L-Acoustics sound system that would bring the Alamodome’s aural experience into the 21st century. LD Systems installed the new system composed of 76 K2 boxes and a dozen KS28 subwoofers powered by LA8 and LA12X amplified controllers, with fill support from X8 coaxials on the club level. The primary objective was to deliver the high impact, high SPL and enhanced intelligibility now required in modern sports, including the 2018 NCAA Final Four March Madness games, which will be played there for the first time in 20 years.
LD Systems has also installed L-Acoustics sound systems in the AT&T Center and Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio and Toyota Center in Houston.
