The College of Charleston constructed the Carolina First Arena to provide a state-of-the-art home for their men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball teams.  The 190,000-square-foot facility has an arena seating capacity of 5,100 spectators and a high-end hospitality room.

AVANT ACOUSTICS provided the following services:

  • Room acoustics consultation
  • Sound reinforcement system design
  • On-site system commissioning, including operator training and assistance during the first use

Project Highlights:

The sound system in the arena consists of 6 loudspeaker clusters that provide audio coverage to the floor and 16 loudspeaker clusters that provide audio coverage to the seats.  Ceiling-mounted loudspeakers are installed at the concession areas, as well. 

The system also includes a sound-operating location with securable custom millwork to house the mixing console, all the program source equipment, and other equipment needed by the operator during an event. 

The hospitality room includes a sound system that can either be used as an independent system for local events or as an extension of the arena.  There is an audio-visual system in this room, as well, which includes a large projection screen and projector and inputs for laptop computers and video players.
