EAW Sounds Off at Oriole Park at Camden Yards
Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened the 2009 MLB season with an Opening Day victory by the hometown Baltimore Orioles over the New York Yankees and a new sound-reinforcement system featuring nearly 300 loudspeakers from EAW.
EAW AX364-WP (weather-protected variation) arrayable install loudspeakers were used for the upper- and lower-deck front-firing; EAW MK2394-WP 2-way full range installation loudspeakers for upper-deck down- and rear-fill, lower-deck rear-fill, and outfield front-firing; and EAW JFX100i compact full-range loudspeakers for club-level front-firing and lower-deck down-fill. The EAW UX8800 digital-signal processor was installed for bowl loudspeaker processing.
The Maryland Stadium Authority, which manages the state-owned ballpark, contracted with Tampa, FL-based audio-visual-integration company AVI-SPL. The system was designed by New York-based SIA Acoustics, the audio consultant for the Orioles on the project.
