Top factors to consider when choosing the right sound system for your facility

The rush and wave of excitement that comes over spectators at an event with top quality sound can make the experience unforgettable.

When a fan in the stands feels like they are involved and part of the action- from the rumbling and shaking of bleachers to the pumping up of the crowd, starting line-ups and more, sound directly contributes to the enjoyment these experiences provide. Delivering a game-day atmosphere with impeccable sound elevates crowd involvement and can set your facility apart from the rest.

When it comes to choosing a sound system, there are a couple of factors and features to consider that make Nevco’s sound systems stand out among the rest.


Venues come in all shapes and sizes and the audible needs of a large stadium are going to be very different from a small gym or auditorium. Nevco understands this and has designed its sound systems to cater to the needs of each facility it serves.

The number of seats your facility houses, where they are located, and the size of your facility should all be considered when choosing an audio system that guarantees complete coverage with quality sound reaching every person with precision. In addition to the size of the facility, Nevco Consultants will work with you on your overall game-day production. Upon assessing your facility and production set-up, we will have a better understanding of your facility’s needs for game-day. Those details will help you find the right fit, preventing the audio levels of a stadium with thousands of seats from being too quiet or the audio in a small venue from damaging ear drums.

Nevco’s Stadium Pro 1000 and 2000 outdoor sound systems provide two options dependent on the size of your facility. Both systems are discreetly located at the scoreboard with a custom design front mesh face scrim. The Stadium Pro 1000, which comes with two speakers and a subwoofer, is ideal for venues up to 5,000 seats. The Stadium Pro 2000 is designed for larger venues with more than 100 linear yards of stands or more than 5,000 seats and comes with four speakers and a pair of subwoofers.

Nevco’s indoor sound solutions are the Arena Pro 1000 and 2000. The Arena Pro 1000 is a wall-mounted system with two speakers and subwoofers in custom-designed speaker cabinets with printable front mesh scrim, ideal for a space no larger than 130 x 120. The Arena Pro 2000 is a center-hung cluster with four speakers and two subwoofers, ideal for larger indoor spaces up to 160 x 120.

If your venue needs exceed what our standard systems provide, Nevco can help. In conjunction with some of the top audio companies in the industry, we can engineer a custom sound solution for your facility.


An important question you must ask when considering your audio system is: What is my venue used for? Is it primarily reserved for athletic events or even specific sports themselves, or is it the site of plays or graduations? May it also be a multipurpose facility capable of hosting it all? Defining what your venue is capable of, or what you want it to specifically be designed for, will help you make the right choice to deliver an unparalleled experience for your players, coaches and fans.

Regardless of the sound system that best meets the needs of the facility that houses it, there are several guarantees each Nevco sound system has to offer. They have all been designed to produce concert quality sound at optimal decibel levels that can be distinguished from crowd noise, offer high-fidelity and full-range reproduction of music and speech to ensure sound clarity, and the subwoofers reinforce sound and frequency, resulting in a fuller sound and enhancing the experience for spectators.


There may be plenty of options to choose from when it comes to selecting a sound system and it may be enticing to choose the cheapest one. However, the cheapest option may also come with its own price if it means sacrificing the quality of your audio.

Therefore, it is best to check the manufacturers of the products themselves, getting to know their reputations, and even talk with other schools or organizations who have used their products to get their input as well. Finding out if the products are not just reliable and long-lasting, but convenient and simple to utilize should factor into your decision-making process.

Nevco partners with the industry leading sound manufacturers to design our best-in-class solutions for your stadium or arena. Both sound systems feature a turnkey approach with all components integrated and optimized by Nevco for complete compatibility with video and control room solutions, and the minimal power requirements also result in faster installation and lower installation costs.


The selection process of a sound system is a decision that should not be taken lightly, but also be backed up by a quality warranty that eliminates as much risk or doubt as possible.

Because of the confidence Nevco has in the reliability of its sound systems, they come with the best warranties in the industry. The Stadium Pro 1000 and 2000 come with the industry’s best 5-year warranty on loudspeakers and speaker cabinets and the Arena Pro 1000 and 2000 come with the best-in-market 3-year warranties on speakers, cabinets and subwoofers.
