Summerstage installed a new neighbor-pleasing soundsystem

Yogi Bear and the three stooges

A new $250,000 sound system for Central Park’s SummerStage concert series this year is giving back some peace and quiet to its Fifth Avenue neighbors.

The 2010 season of the free concert series at Rumsey Playfield, between East 69th and East 70th Streets, in the park will feature a new targeted sound system designed to rock for concert-goers, but leave residents undisturbed.

“We heard from some people that during the concerts, the noise was disturbing their peace and quiet, so we worked with SummerStage and the City Parks Foundation to address the issue,” City Councilman Dan Garodnick said.

The new Line-Array System pinpoints sound more directly towards the audience and minimizes the ambient sound that spilled over into the neighborhood, said David Rivel, executive director of the City Parks Foundation. [DNAInfo]
