The extensive audio system renovations at Spartan Stadium were completed during the summer in time for the Spartan’s first home game. The upgrades included a series of Fulcrum Acoustic loudspeakers mounted within the LED scoreboard enclosure and JBL fill loudspeakers throughout the concourse. Powersoft Quattrocanali and QSC CX-Q amplifiers drive the speakers with audio processing by QSC Q-SYS DSPs. Audio mixing is accomplished with Digico S21-series mixing console. The entire system is built atop a Dante network that provides near-zero latency and excellent interoperability.

Our team and partners have delivered a first-class audio experience that fans will enjoy for many years.”
