Stadium sound specialists TG Baker Sound specified JBL’s new All Weather Compact (AWC) multi-purpose loudspeakers for a recent audio upgrade at Headingley Carnegie Stadium in Leeds. “The Rugby League World Cup comes to Great Britain in October, with Headingley Carnegie Stadium hosting some key fixtures, including a quarter final, so making improvements to the existing system was the client’s key driver for the upgrade,” said TG Baker regional manager, Jason Longworth. Longworth added that the JBL loudspeakers were fast becoming their ‘go to’ solution. “It’s a combination of the SPL’s we can generate, together with the LF extension and pattern control, even at low frequencies, that we really like about the AWC series,” he said. “The cabinets are weatherised as standard, provide uniform 90° x 90° dispersion and can be run straight of the box without requiring too much EQ to make them sing. We’ve often had to supplement other similar products with secondary subs but that’s not been the case with these.” The project itself had to be delivered within an extremely tight time frame, as the client stipulated that upon placement of the order, TG Baker had to complete the entire project within eight working days. Longworth praised Sound Technology – the Harman Professional distributors in the UK – for their ability to deliver on such tight timescales. Summing up, he stated, “The stand simply needed a bit more razzmatazz, as is demanded by the current Super League and with the JBL AWC’s that is exactly what we’ve been able to provide.”
