Seattle Pro Audio Keys DSA Selection At Qwest Field
Seattle Pro Audio, headed by Michael Gardner and a leading system provider and dealer based in the northwest U.S., played a key role in the selection of EAW DSA (Digitally Steerable Array) Series loudspeakers implemented with great success at Qwest Field in Seattle, home stadium of the Seattle Seahawks NFL franchise. And in fact, the stadium will be rockin’ this coming weekend as the Seahawks enter the playoffs against the Dallas Cowboys in looking to make it to the Super Bowl for the second straight year.
“Our goal in every case is to facilitate a ‘win-win’ for all involved,” he continues. “We aim to please and the success of our customers is our success as well.”
Just prior to the current season, Gardner introduced Fred Micera, head of audio at Qwest Field, to the numerous advantages of DSA loudspeakers when the two were discussing new sound reinforcement options for the venue’s seven club spaces.
The biggest challenge of these spaces is that they’re all comprised of thousands of square feet of coverage area dominated by multiple reflective surfaces, many of them parallel. Enter Gardner and Seattle Pro Audio, who in addition to offering full-service turnkey system design and installation services also specialize in providing relevant product demonstrations that help guide customers to optimum solutions, which was fully in evidence on this project.
Very quickly into Seattle Pro Audio’s DSA demo process, Micera understood the advantages presented by these loudspeaker systems for this critical application. He then specified two sets of single DSA250 and DSA230 topped by a single EAW SB120 subwoofer to serve the three larger club spaces as well as a single DSA250, again topped by a SB120, to serve the four smaller spaces.
“We always take a hands-on approach because it’s the best approach,” explains Gardner. “The idea is to fully support all of our customers in whatever way possible in order to assist their decision-making processes so that the right direction is the consistent result.
