DAKTRONICS AND JBL VRX LINE ARRAYS BRING SOUND TO THE SOONERS AT UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA'S LLOYD NOBLE CENTER

NORTHRIDGE, California – Demonstrating the power and ease of installation of JBL VRX portable line arrays, systems integration firm Daktronics designed and installed a new audio system for the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, Oklahoma. The Lloyd Noble Center is home to the University of Oklahoma basketball teams and also serves as one of the largest concert venues in the region.

Built in 1975, the Lloyd Noble Center has a capacity of 11,528, which can vary for theater seating during concerts. Given the variety of events held at the venue, Daktronics installed an equally versatile audio system comprised of JBL VRX line array loudspeakers.

The audio system features more than 60 VRX932LA line array loudspeakers in a distributed “exploded cluster” configuration. Supplementing the main system are VRX928 8-inch, portable line array elements for the upper seating areas. The entire system is powered by Crown XTi amplifiers.

Since their initial introduction, JBL’s VRX portable line array series has become a favorite among systems integrators in a variety of applications from houses of worship and performance venues to sports arenas. The product’s optimal combination of power, light weight and configurability offers a high level of versatility for demanding installations.

“We have successfully employed VRX line arrays in the past and found them to be an ideal solution for the system at the Lloyd Noble Center,” said Doug Dodge of Daktronics. “The system has performed exceptionally and provides smooth, even coverage to all areas of the arena.”
