Whether designed for it on purpose or not, Levi's will be louder than the stick, much louder. I've tried to argue this, but I'm in the minority. Just you watch though.
I think the contractor knows what he is talking about when he says it will be louder.
Its true, and it makes sense.
The press boxes being all on one side make it so the upper deck isnt separated from the lower. The majority of the seating is lower bowl, like a college stadium, and will be very close to the field.
That mass of low, close seating will project noise across the field, and when it hits the large, flat, glass building on the other side, the noise will be deflected back onto the field. The open corners wont really be a factor in "losing sound".
