U.S. Cellular Center
The U.S. Cellular Center Arena is a 7,654-seat facility located in Asheville, North Carolina. AVANT ACOUSTICS worked on the renovation, which included new acoustical treatment, seating, concourse areas, lighting systems, scoreboards, and a state-of-the-art sound reinforcement system.
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
AVANT ACOUSTICS developed several schemes for new sound absorption treatments in an effort to reduce the long 2.8-second reverberation time measured in the existing space. The final solution of Lapendary banners in the rafters and Tectum wall panels around the perimeter resulted in a new unoccupied reverberation time of 1.8 seconds.
