Electrifying events. Intelligent installations. Unforgettable experiences.

Franklin Field

Every year, tens of thousands of fans crowd into the historic Franklin Field stadium at the University of Pennsylvania to enjoy the Penn Relays:  a fast-paced track and field event that has been a Penn institution since 1894.
Three weeks before the 115th annual Penn Relays were to begin, Penn’s athletic director realized that Franklin Field’s 27-year-old sound system was no longer functioning.  His first call was to Clear Sound.  Within hours, a team of sound specialists was at Franklin Field, assessing the situation and making a plan to meet the impending deadline.  Working with engineers at Community Professional Loudspeakers, Clear Sound designed an entirely new system for the stadium.  Since the antique roof of Weightman Hall couldn’t support the weight of modern speaker clusters, a mechanical engineering firm created a custom made steel structure for supporting the new equipment.  Clear Sound oversaw the design, construction and installation of the platform, as well as the installation of the new loudspeakers, which had to be lifted into place with a crane.  Thanks to the team’s focus and expertise, the entire installation was finished within three weeks.  Fans will now be able to enjoy unprecedented sound quality during the Penn Relays for years to come.

Each year, all over the country, more than 300,000 people get together with friends, family and co-workers for the MS Walk sponsored by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The Walks raise money for research, provide services to those affected by MS and to raise awareness. And every year, in Philadelphia, Clear Sound is there to provide audio support for the event.

The Griffin Complex at Gwynedd Mercy University is home to the Men’s and Women’s Basketball and Volleyball teams. The Complex hosted exciting competitions and distinguished graduations, but the attendees had a hard time hearing what was happening.

With a history dating back to ancient China, the Philadelphia International Dragon Boat Festival meets every fall for a day of fun and competition on the Schuylkill River. Teams of paddlers, each with a steersperson and drummer, race for glory in this regional event.

Intimate, natural-sounding dialogue in a sold-out theater. Crisp, intelligible announcements in a packed stadium. Exhilarating lights and music at an outdoor summer festival. A stirring sermon reaching every corner of a cavernous church.

Sounds like the work of Clear Sound - the Delaware Valley's best full-service audio, video and lighting company.
