Spokane Arena, Upcoming Concerts and Events in Spokane Washington

Audio Capabilities

The sound system at the Spokane Arena is a high powered, computer controlled voice and music system capable of multiple pre-programmed system configurations.

The system can be programmed for hockey, basketball, trade shows, concerts, emergencies, or any other uses, and the saved configurations can be recalled at any time. The system is driven by 54 Meyer Sound Lab speakers which provide even coverage throughout the Arena's 6.2 million cubic feet of space in the Arena bowl.

The system is driven by 23 Meyer Sound MSL-4 full range powered cabinets in an exploded cluster configuration. The upper delay ring consists of 19 Meyer UPA-1C full range cabinets. The entire system is augmented by 12 Meyer Sound HP700 subwoofer cabinets that drive the low end energy for the room.

The front of house is equipped with a Yamaha M7CL in the main control room, utilizing Dante technology for content distribution in the arena bowl with endpoints from Focusrite and Yamaha.

The concourse, dressing rooms, and backstage hallways are covered with Bose speakers throughout and the whole system is driven by QSControl.net with QSC Amplification on the back end. This has proven to be an outstanding combination for sound reinforcement needs in the Spokane Arena.

Audio, video, theatrical lights, MAC Vipers, Clay Paky Sharpys, house lights, and LED ribbon board are operated from the A/V Control room located above seating section 122.

This system has proven to be very versatile and is one of the best arena sound systems around!
