Meadowbank gets the Martin treatment
The newly built Meadowbank Football Ground in Dorking, Surrey is home to Dorking Wanderers FC and the Surrey FA. Guildford Sound and Light were bought in to launch part 1 of a 3 stage PA project. The time schedule was very tight and meant our engineers were on site until midnight but we managed to deliver with 24 hours to spare. The main stand and fan zone were first on the list to get powerful Martin Audio PA Systems. The client wanted the main stand to hear announcements as well as cover the pitch for other events. We used 2 x CDD15 speakers powered by a Powersoft M30D amplifier. The fan zone is an outdoor bar area behind the main stand. This was covered by 2 x CDD8WR speakers powered by a Citronic PLX2800 amplifier. A small PA mixer and Sennheiser wireless microphone were at the front of this fantastic sounding system. Operations Director, Ben Eltham commented 'that is exactly what we wanted'. We look forward to phase 2 which will see 2 smaller stands get perfect even sound.
