Alumni Stadium, home to the Boston College Eagles football team, recently installed a new EAW sound reinforcement system to upgrade the game day experience for fans. Time, weather, and wind had taken their toll on the previous system making its replacement a necessity before the start of the 2014 season.

Boston College's Athletic department called upon Wrightson, Johnson, Haddon, & Williams (WJHW) to design a new upper deck sound reinforcement system that would "weather the weather" and upgrade the rest of the stadium at the same time. All Pro Sound, headquartered in Pensacola, Florida, handled the installation of the system.
