In 2012, Eastern began a major renovation that will conclude with new artificial turf and a new track in time for June, 2013 graduation ceremonies. As part of the renovation, Eastern upgraded their stadium sound system with Community R-Series, WET Series and iBOX loudspeakers. The stadium previously had four Community R-Series model R2-474 loudspeakers on light poles – two at both ends of the home team bleachers. JD Sound and Video refurbished these, added Polar Focus brackets and re-aimed the R2s for better coverage. JD then added a pair of WET Series W2-218s on the press box to cover the home-team bleachers and delayed the original R2s to avoid artificial echoes. JD also added an R2-52 on the press box aimed to cover the visiting team bleachers. For Eastern’s pep rallies and special events, JD added a pair of weatherized Community iBOX dual-15” i215 subwoofers. These were installed under the bleachers and provide low-frequency support for the entire field.
