When it came to how they wanted things to sound, the looked no further than New York City, just a few miles away. The goal was to sound as good as famed Madison Square Garden.

So far, with a JBL line array system in place, they have succeeded (or maybe even exceeded) in matching the iconic MSG venue. The system provides, "amazing sound, pumping up the crowd or delivering clear PA announcements throughout the game."  The ultimate goal was to  be able to feel the energy of the PA but also have a conversation with fellow fans.

The system delivers volume along with clarity. You can hear it, you can understand it, and you can still feel it."
