Fetz - new lighting

Recommended Posts

I saw on LinkedIn that a local electrical contractor started the Chaifetz Arena lighting replacement project today. I am sure the new lighting will be great but I think the sound system needed upgrading before the lighting.

There are a lot of grants right now for facilities like Chaifetz to convert to LED lightning. I am totally assuming that is what kind of lighting they are installing there. Depending on the type of system, there is an opportunity to do some cool stuff with those kind of lights.

The sound system is not good. I believe it varies from where you sit. I know when I go to a women's game and sit mid court I can hear much better. Maybe I don't hate Gus like most of you is that I don't hear him as well.

I guess this explains the practice at Harris Stowe.

I am not sure about the expected life span of LED lights for Arenas and the like, but they should save some money and produce less heat than sodium lights and other types of floodlights. If you get better lights and save money in the process this is good.

LEDs last a loooooong time.

Sodium lights aren't used indoors much, are they?

LED lighting is also great for fan experience. You can do a lot of cool light displays for things like pregame intros and halftime shows.

They produce a lot of heat, but in large structures like arenas and stadiums they can be used.
