New Loudspeaker System Hits Homerun for Mariners Fans
Diversified partners with T-Mobile Park, home to MLB’s Seattle Mariners, to update loudspeaker system and enhance the fan experience.
Diversified has a long history of helping stadiums and arenas around the globe leverage technology to elevate the fan experience, putting them right in the excitement on field. When the Seattle Mariners were looking to perform a much-needed audio and loudspeaker system upgrade, they pulled from Diversified’s bench of experts.
Jeff Sanderson, a senior design engineer at Diversified, and Ben Mertens, Seattle Mariners senior director of productions, highlight key considerations made during the selection before ultimately choosing a d&b xS-Series loudspeaker system.
According to Mertens, “The original system, which was installed when T-Mobile Park opened in 1999, had served its purpose and it was time to upgrade to something that would enhance the fan experience and give us more control over the sound profile for ballpark events. Working with Jeff Sanderson and his team at Diversified, we were able to use the existing footprint and add speakers without impacting sightlines.”
“The large-scale stadium/arena is vastly different now than 10 years ago. With a 40,000+ seat stadium like T-Mobile Park, the biggest consideration is speaker placement for coverage, throw distance, building structure, HVAC; a lot of areas come into play,” says Sanderson. “During the demo process, the quality differences blew the client away providing an unmatched fan experience, which was our ultimate goal.”
