Electrical Contractor Magazine Interviews Diversified’s Justo Gutierrez
The Insider’s Perspective on Updating Sound Systems for Sports Venues
Electrical Contractor Magazine interviews Diversified and M. Gitlin on their work engineering and updating sound systems for sports venues at two of Philadelphia’s largest stadiums: Citizens Bank Park, home to MLB’s Philadelphia Phillies, and the Wells Fargo Center, a covered arena where the NHL’s Flyers and NBA’s 76ers play.
The venues needed to upgrade their speakers and public address systems, but the projects posed different challenges. Citizens Bank Park is open to the weather with speakers mounted 135 feet above the field. The Wells Fargo Center needed a motorized system that would enable speakers to be moved up and out of the way to accommodate a variety of events in indoor space, and the work had to coordinate around an ongoing performance and event schedule.
Diversified’s Sports and Live Events team is no stranger to working with owners, arena operations staff, consultants, rigging experts and manufacturers in updating sound systems for sports venues. Through work with other large venues including: Hard Rock Stadium, Honda Center, Los Angeles Angels and Safeco Field, Diversified has designed and implemented numerous new arena sound systems.
