it will be as loud as we want it to be
this. So it won't be loud.
The stadium is not designed to keep sound in. Apart from the green roof luxury box side, it's completely wide open like a bowl. And you know that the luxury boxes are not going to be cheering loud.
As an audio engineer, I can tell you that the best way to reduce the amount of sound reflections in a studio is by building walls that are at different angles. So if anything, the new stadium looks like it was built to reduce sound. If the architects were trying to trap the sound inside, they wouldn't have had those big plaza openings on the north and south side of the stadium.
The big hoods on the top of C-Link trap the sound and reflect it back down towards the field. The crowd shouts
and makes noise, the sound travels straight across to the other side of the stadium, it keeps bouncing around
from one side to the other.
