Sportsound 500HD Sound System

The Sportsound 500HD is a complete sound system designed to provide high-impact sound reinforcement for a variety of outdoor facilities, including football, lacrosse, soccer, softball and track. The system is installed in a permanent position and provides full range sound and even coverage at levels capable of overcoming crowd noise.
