    We need a better sound system

    Our speakers at JTS are not too good. I don't know whether we have blown speakers or what. We need a serious upgrade. It would make the gameday experience even better.

    How many times do we have to talk about this on here? The university is aware of the issue and has even said a new sound system is the next thing on the list of stadium upgrades.

    Re: We need a better sound system

    will be easier to do new sound with a stadium addition. Having dozens of speakers through out the stadium is much better than one big bank of speakers to cover that area.

    The wind kind of effected it yesterday. It was blowing right at it.

    Having speakers spread throughout the stadium can't be done, due to echos and delays, etc. It would sound like a mess. All of the sound has to come from one direction, or they need to be hung from the center, like Hilton. Obviously, they can't be hung, so upgrading the speakers in the south endzone is what needs to be done.

    It'll be talked about until the upgrades are made. It's that bad.

    Re: We need a better sound system

    Question is are they gonna add a huge jumbo screen on top of the Jacobson building or place it somewhere that will fit around the new south endzone? I was impressed with the sound system at Arrowhead last year and would love for ISU to model their sound and video systems like that.

    put your money where your mouth is...if it's so bad then donate some money and tell Pollard it's for a new sound system.

    You and I both know that any small donation any of us will make won't make even a dent in this. It's all about that 'donor'. That guy will make the difference.

    Re: We need a better sound system

    ISU just needs to start spending the money they get from athletics on athletics...ISU needs to use the millions they get from donors on university stuff. If we used the whole 7 million+ budget on just athletics our stadium would be a hell of a lot better and we could field much better teams. Pollard and Geoffrey need to fix this once we start making close to 14 million (hopefully) once the new big 12 (10) officially begins or we will be left out in the cold. there is absolutely no reason we should have the smallest athletic budget in the conference...our priorities are a little screwed up it seems like

    If enough small donors stepped up to raise $10,000,000 for the upgrade it could be done. If 20,000 fans gave just $500 each or 40,000 fans gave $250 each that would be all it takes.
    There are over 30,000 season ticket holders. If just two thirds of them put the money($500) up it would be done and ready to kick off the 2011 season. I know it's a lot to ask and a lot of people don't have the money to give but some could give more and some could give less. There is strength in numbers.

    Re: We need a better sound system

    I think we need new sound effects and not the same **** from years ago.

    It also wouldn't hurt if the band came up with some new musical jingles besides the same Star Wars song and other old stuff...
