ATLANTA, GEORGIA – JUNE 2016: Danley will add its hometown football team to the long and growing list of sports stadiums using Danley loudspeakers and subwoofers. The Atlanta Falcons are currently building the 75,000-seat Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which will feature a unique “pinwheel-shaped” retractable roof, the world’s largest LED screen, and a truly massive distributed Danley Jericho Horn and BC-218 subwoofer sound reinforcement system.
“The Falcons headquarters is five minutes from my house, and I’ve been a lifelong fan,” enthused Danley President and CEO, Mike Hedden. “We have had a relationship with the Falcons for several years so when the new stadium was first being discussed we gave them an outdoor demo at a community event that blew them away in terms of volume, clarity, and musicality. We were later asked by the Falcons to come up with a design for the new stadium that, when compared to the other proposals they received, provided substantially better coverage, bandwidth, and intelligibility. Further added value is it costs significantly less, weighs half as much and uses a fraction of the amplifiers, signal processing and cabling. It’s all up-side!”
The system will be abundantly powerful. Eight hangs will ring the backside of the circular LED screen, firing back at the stands. Each hang will consist of a Danley J1-94 Jericho Horn on top, a Danley J2-96 Jericho Horn on bottom, and two Danley BC-218 subwoofers, coupled to provide 20dB of forward directivity down to 50Hz. In addition, four Danley XD-62 loudspeakers will provide fill, and two Danley J3-64 Jericho Horns will cover the field for pre-game.
