Went along the Santa Clara junk of a stadium the other day, and it looks like a hollow sided pile of cement. All the structures around look half-developed and put together like a bunch slabs! You have a view of absolute garbage for miles. I was in the area for a while a couple months ago, there's nothing there.

Mercado Center is GARBAGE.
Stores on Old Mountain View-Alviso Rd. are GARBAGE.
Stores on Agnew Rd. are GARBAGE

Go Niners!

What do you not understand about the fact that the team tried EVERYTHING POSSIBLE to stay in SF city limits, but the CITY didnt want them there!!! Now for f**ks sake, shut the hell up with your useless trolling. Dont like it then dont go, but please stop b***hing. It isnt going to change a goddamn thing and everyone is tired of it.

That is one pathetically empty stadium. Hope Levis never gets that empty.

Are you coming to the games to watch football or shop? Lol. Don't worry you can get a new purse at Santana Row or Valley Fair.

Couldn't afford the new stadium eh? Sucks to be you.

Meh, probably was one of those Thurs night preseason games when lots of people don't go or they're still stuck in traffic.

That tower wasn't built to trap noise lol. It was designed to make rich people comfortable. The glass is angled up.

"It's going to be really loud in here," said Rayborn, who works for Turner/Devcon construction. "Really loud. Really, really loud."

Then he explained why. The stadium's design is different from most football stadiums.

The vast majority of luxury boxes are located in an eight-level tower -- essentially, a 12-story building -- on the west side of the field. That means two things: One, there are no upper decks on the west side, just the lower bowl and the tower. And two, the east side upper decks can be closer to the ground -- because it does not sit atop multiple levels of luxury boxes.

Perhaps that's a bit too architectural-geeky. But the practical ramification is this: All of those fans on the east side of the stadium (who are closer to the field than at Candlestick) will scream noise toward the field and the west side of the stadium. And when that noise hits the large flat side of the tower, the noise will immediately bounce right back toward the field.


My point still stands. It most likely wasnt designed with "lets make this b***h loud as f**k!" as the number one design criteria. The niners were going for a great experience, so they looked at other venues and decided having a large ass lower bowl would be best. The obvious benefit to thiss is tmost of the crowd is closer to the field which will make the venue louder than candlestick.

Edit: now that I think about, they did design it with the intention to be loud as an underlying criteria. Let's make these jeans loud!

i think itll be pretty damn loud for three reasons. one: the lower bowl is huge and will be closer to the field. two: that big ass glass wall will reflect noise like crazy and amplify everything and three: the team playing in the stadium is the best in the league so fans should be jacked up about that. if they can be as loud as they were at the final candlestick game all year long our homefield advantage will be insane

Glass wall won't reflect down.

It will reflect in all directions


A slight angle unseen to the eye can be enough to direct the sound any way you want

Well if you shine a laser at a large angle towards a wall you can still see the laser dot. The only way you can see something is if light scatters to your eye. Thus, even at a 179 degree angle light is reflecting off the wall and straight back at you. To expand on that, if you were to stand underneath the glass wall and yell at it or shine a laser at it some light and sound would reflect directly back to you.

In conclusion, we have to ask ourselves what will reflect sound the best. A large wall made of glass and steel or a bunch of patrons and seats that make a myriad of angles. The fact that we have a 12 story building instead of a ton of seats, people, and clothing will mean that a lot of the sound is reflected rather than absorbed and thus a portion of that will all be sent to the field no matter its origin. Its partly a question of reflection and partly a question of absorption, and that big ass building will not be absorbing a lot of the sound.

The other part that is of significance is the upper bowl, which mostly likely sits 30 to 40 feet closer to ground level, this means the upper bowl will be a larger contribute to the field level sound. Also, it's safe to assume that most of their sound made that gets reflected off the glass wall will be angled towards the field. It will be of some significance.

I think that if everyone is expecting Levis Stadium to have any sound trapping / amplification properties, they are fooling themselves. While the glass on one side can reflect the sound, the large open sections of the stadium will allow a lot of sound to escape. In CenturyLink Stadium, the large overhanging traps re-direct the sound back toward the field. There are no such sources of reflection in Levis Stadium. No doubt, Levis can get loud. But it will not have the same kind of effect on the playing field as CenturyLink.

I'm sure that nobody is going to develop any additional strip malls or properties around the stadium in the next 10 years. The entire BMX park right across from the stadium on Lafayette could be crammed with housing and commercial real estate. My office is down the street about a mile from the stadium.

Anyone claiming knowledge, definitively, of data that does not yet exist is fooling himself.

Sound is not going to flow out those sides. Does no quite work that way. Clink has large hole in the endzone.

I want people to think about a canyon, they dont need eaves and generally wide open on the sides yet still echo the sound and that's where sound amplification is achieved.

Are we getting clink? No. are we getting arrowhead? No are we getting louder? Yes , probably considerably louder and I'm guessing upper echaleon of stadiums.
Stop quoting the troll tired of seeing it.

Candlestick was able to get loud enough to make it a little difficult for Russell Wilson in our second meeting from what I heard and read after the game...now just imagine the fans and a wall closer to the field ....we are not trying to break records here...but it will definitely be louder

Candlestick doesn't get a lot of credit but when the fans get super amped up and loud (Saints home playoff game awhile back, Seattle game + finale game vs Atlanta), it's not bad for a stadium that probably has outdated acoustics, speaker systems, and doesn't keep much of the crowd noise inside anyway. I do agree that Levi's should be much louder tho for many of the reasons previously stated, plus more I'm inclined to take the word of the co-director of the place when he says it should be pretty loud.
