Welcome aboard, great name lol

and clink has an area that isn't enclosed at all and its loud as hell. just gotta wait until we play a game there first

A potential downside to all that openness -- depending on how much you treasure your hearing - is that Levi's Stadium doesn't seem like it will be a particularly loud stadium. Unlike its counterpart in Seattle, which was built to protect fans from the rain, there are very few overhangs and spaces to trap and reflect sound. Seattle's stadium was designed to shield people from the rain; Santa Clara's was built to welcome in the light.

The other Debbie Downer observation (from someone who lived in that part of Santa Clara for four years) is that there's not much to see. The best feature of that part of the bay is that it is between two mountain ranges. Otherwise, there is a parking lot and an amusement part to the west, an electrical station to the southeast and the 49ers practice facility to the east. If such a translucent stadium had been built on the edge of the San Francisco Bay, for example, there would be a lot more to look at. Of course, the design probably couldn't have been as airy in a spot where the air can be cold and unpleasant.

He writes for a newspaper, and of course this makes him an acoustics expert. OK.

Did you used to take care of elephants? Because you are an expert at shoveling crap around.

Barrows wrote a similar piece a few months ago and like this one, I felt it lacked insight and source. Maiocco's article (which pertains to a similar subject, Levi's acoustics, noise factor) is much more factual, insightful, and includes more substance.

Yeah wtf Barrows saying it's going to be quiet, whereas everyone else is saying it's going to be loud as hell?

yeah, and the whole bayfront "scenery" angle is dumb....this is FOOTBALL not goddamn baseball!!! your attention is gonna be riveted 90% of the time to the action on the field, unlike the more pastoral baseball where you have leisure to take in the ambience of the surroundings as part of the experience

Thanks haha, yeah one of my favorite plays in 49ers history if the Plummer/Woodall forced fumble and TD in 1995.

People keep talking about those damn overhangs in Seattle. They direct a lot of the noise downward, but they are not used very efficiently. People are not yelling straight up at them, they are only picking up the noise indirectly.
Our stadium will pick up the sound DIRECTLY out of the mouths of our fans. It will bounce DIRECTLY on the field, and most of our fans will be yelling DIRECTLY at it.

Who's louder, the guy yelling directly at you, or the guy yelling below you?

Our stadium is going to be LOUD.
I think its all about distance to the field... I dont buy Clink's stadium design. I understand domes being loud, but when it comes to outdoor venues I think its all about how far the fan base is from the field and Candlestick is probably the worst
Hahaha, hard to believe they overlooked this consideration when designing the stadium:

The stadium was originally designed to house the 49ers' sideline on the east side, where the home locker room is along with the East Field Club. But the east sideline will be in the sun for much, if not all afternoon games. Jim Harbaugh reportedly requested the team be moved to the west sideline (in the shade) well after the design was already in place.

That means the 49ers' entrance to the field will be directly behind the visiting sideline which is both inconvenient and awkward. Officials indicated the starters introductions would likely come from the south field entrance, which would negate club patrons the ability to see the starters take the field for the last time before kick off. And at halftime, teams will have to cross paths in order to get to their locker room entrances on the opposite sidelines.

No the 12th man is real, they are just louder than everyone else. They have a special and unique fan base unlike any other.

That's what they want you to think....

When I took my tour of Levi's, the guide pointed out that Baalke and Harbaugh were the ones who caught that flaw in the design. He also made a joke about Harbaugh and Schwartz hopefully not having another incident (this was before the 2013 season).
Had a dream last night that I finally got to sit down on my seat at Levi's. I can't wait to step foot in there!

Me too, it will also give us a chance to check out the whole stadium since I could care less about the soccer game
