The Hershey Centre is a multi-purpose sports and entertainment complex located in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Home to the Ontario Hockey League’s Mississauga Steelheads and the NBA Development League’s Raptors 905, the facility also hosts a wide variety of events, ranging from live music and internationally-televised figure skating championships to boxing and indoor rodeos.
In response to guest feedback on its nearly two decade old distributed sound system and concerns that it might fail during an event, an extensive upgrade brought “major-league” sound to the Hershey Centre with loudspeakers from Fulcrum Acoustic.
The arena required an updated sound system with the enhanced output, intelligibility, fidelity and low frequency response professional sports fans have come to expect, along with the ability to customize coverage for a diverse array of events.
Design specialist Dave Clark crafted a sound system based on Fulcrum Acoustic CX1265 12-inch coaxial loudspeaker clusters.
