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.
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.
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
I don't doubt it will be louder. But I've seen articles that try to hype up the new stadium as if it could be louder than Century Link. I don't want people to get their hopes up.
