Wells Fargo Center Ups Its Game Through Diversified and L-Acoustics Partnership
Compact, lightweight, and great sounding, a new K2/K1-SB loudspeaker system networked via AVB is the ultimate three-pointer for the newly renovated arena.
This year, Philadelphia sports fans headed to the Wells Fargo Center to take in games by the 76ers, the Flyers, and the AFL’s Philadelphia Soul will enjoy a significantly enhanced experience thanks to $250 million in upgrades currently being made to the arena as part of its “Transformation 2020” initiative.
Designed by Diversified, with input from sports-design consultant Wrightson, Johnson, Haddon and Williams (WJHW) of Dallas, Texas, the centerpiece of the venue’s renovation so far is its new L-Acoustics K2/K1-SB sound system.
“The L-Acoustics K2 system hit all of the main points for this project, like power and coverage, but the decision was also driven by budget, and L-Acoustics was able to provide the performance this installation needed within the project’s budget guidelines,” says Justo Gutierrez, Diversified’s Director of AV and Sound, Sports & Live Events. “But just as importantly,” he adds, “L-Acoustics was also the choice of the exceptionally knowledgeable Wells Fargo Center operations staff.”
