L-Acoustics provides the audio front line at TDECU Stadium
TDECU Stadium, home to the University of Houston Cougars football team has upgraded its PA system with a loudspeaker design from LD Systems which featured a combination of K, A, and X Series products from L-Acoustics.

TDECU Stadium is built on the site of the former Robertson Stadium and also hosts the XFL's Houston Roughnecks.

Matt Rhodes, sales engineer at LD Systems, University of Houston’s longtime AV partner, commented on the stadium’s sound over the past few years: “We had been helping the school nurse its existing sound system through football seasons for the past two years, but it became clear that they needed a new, more modern audio system. We looked at a few options with them and found that L-Acoustics offered the right mix of components to create a powerful yet cost-effective system for the client.”

The stadium’s new system now comprises two hangs of 12 K2 enclosures over six Kara II per side of the scoreboard, flanked by a combination of A15i Wide and A15i Focus enclosures in two hangs per side as side-fill arrays. Six coaxial X12 and X8 loudspeakers are used as lower arrays below the scoreboard, essentially creating a powerful but low-profile point-source sound system, a typical design for a college football venue, but one that benefits from the varied palette of components L-Acoustics provides, instead of the usual brute-force horns that many such venues have used over the decades. The system is arranged in a high-tech and powerful “necklace” around the scoreboard, collectively powered by two LA4X, three LA2Xi, and ten LA12X amplified controllers.

TDECU Stadium’s new sound system officially debuted on September 17 when the Cougars took on the Kansas Jayhawks of the University of Kansas.
