Community Plays the Fields at Mount Saint Mary’s

Mount
Saint Mary’s University is the oldest independent Catholic college in the
United States.
“The Mount” boasts a history of 125 years of collegiate baseball,
culminating with an NEC Tournament title in 2008, and a $400,000 upgrade for
the school’s E. T. Straw Family Stadium.

Group of
Frederick,
Maryland outfitted the field with two
Community R5-66 coaxial loudspeakers, mounted on the center field scoreboard to
provide coverage to the field and adjacent areas, along with three compact
R.25-99 full-range two-way loudspeakers hung on the press box behind the
bleachers to cover the spectator and dugout areas.
AVG also
upgraded the University’s Waldron Family Stadium, home to the school’s lacrosse
and soccer teams, creating a winning environment for matches. The 1000-seat
venue has been outfitted with a pair of Community R-5 loudspeakers covering the
seating areas, with another pair of R.25 speakers reinforcing the areas in
front of the press box.
“We’ve
been long-time fans of Community’s weather-resistant speakers,” says
Audio-Video Group’s Jim Farber. ”
Northern Marylandcan
produce some very hot and humid summers with driving thunderstorms, along with
bitterly cold ice storms in the winter. The R-Series speakers have proven to be
very reliable under even the most adverse conditions, which has kept both the
university and the fans happy.”
