The new-look Braves AAA squad turned to Danley for their new stadium!
The Atlanta Braves’ AAA affiliate, designated the Gwinnett Braves, recently moved from Richmond, Virginia to Gwinnett County, Georgia, and, in so doing, moved into a new $45 million stadium. Coolray Field seats some 10,000 fans in stands that wrap from left field to right field. An additional picnic area beyond the outfield wall adds to that number. To deliver a functional, yet cost-effective audio system, the ball club hired local A/V design/install firm Baker Audio (Norcross, Georgia), the same company that currently maintains Turner Field. Surveying the field of loudspeakers capable of delivering big league sound at minor league prices, Danley SM-100s were the clear winners and now cover all of the main seating areas.
"Of all the loudspeaker manufacturers out there, only a few make boxes that would have done the job and come in under budget,” said Baker Audio. “We went with Danley because the SH-100, like other Danley boxes, delivers the greatest sound quality for the money."
Installation is a snap!
"Our experience with Danley loudspeakers is that they sound great out of the box, even without any processing. The performance of these speakers made it really easy to have everyone ‘ooohing’ and ‘aaahing’ halfway through the installation. From there, a few tweaks take the system from great to outstanding.”
“The coverage and intelligibility are excellent,” reported Baker. “It’s as if the announcer were speaking in a finely tuned theatre. You don’t need to work at all to understand what’s being said. We’ve received numerous compliments about the improved intelligibility. The system delivers great music, too. For the money, Coolray Field has an excellent system that is certainly leading the league!”
