Project Description

LD Systems Designs and Deploys sound system installation of an L-Acoustics Arena System for Freeman Coliseum

Originally built in 1949, San Antonio’s Freeman Coliseum has hosted everything from rodeos, boxing and hockey to expositions, circuses and concerts over the years. Now, Bexar County and the facility’s management team are in the middle of a multi-year initiative to update the venue, the most recent phase of which included the addition of a new L-Acoustics ARCS FOCUS arena sound system installation.

Following a careful evaluation of the 11,700 capacity arena’s needs, the LD Systems team worked closely with L-ACOUSTICS’ expert applications team to ultimately specify a system comprised of forty ARCS FOCUS enclosures paired with sixteen SB18i sub enclosures in an eight array configuration. The speakers are powered and processed by a combined total of eight amplified controllers. Two LA4 amplifiers drive the bottom ARCS FOCUS enclosures on each array and six LA8 amplifiers power both the subs and upper four ARCS FOCUS cabinets grouped in pairs to cover the main seating. Walking the entire venue and measures an incredibly consistent 108 dB of coverage throughout the seating with almost no fluctuation.

Freeman Coliseum Executive Director Derrick Howard explained “Once the LD team had performed the sound system installation, I brought in one of my favorite CDs…the sound is absolutely spectacular.”

Although the new system will frequently be called upon to provide speech reinforcement for graduation ceremonies, corporate functions and other similar events, Howard adds that the L-ACOUSTICS name and reputation for exemplary sound will certainly appeal to musical acts coming into the venue. “We feel that this system really helps gives us an advantage in attracting top musical artists passing through San Antonio to perform here at the Freeman Coliseum.”
