Dayton and Austintown, OH – Ohio horse racing fans are celebrating the opening of a five-eighths-mile harness racing track in Dayton and a one-mile thoroughbred track in Austintown (Mahoning Valley). Fans at both locations enjoy the excitement of horse racing and casino gambling supported by the venues’ new A/V systems.

Owned by Penn National Gaming, both venues are “racetrack casinos” that include casino gambling, para-mutual wagering, live entertainment and several dining options. Penn National Gaming hired integrator Control-Point Technology of Lebanon, Pennsylvania to design and install A/V systems for both venues. Control-Point designed systems featuring Community R.5HPT loudspeakers. Control-Point’s Aaron Replogle says “Community’s outdoor product range has a great reputation for wide response and great sound. We knew the R.5s would give us plenty of level and even coverage with great intelligibility for vocal applications and good background music sound.”

For optimum coverage on the race tracks, Control-Point located the R.5HPT loudspeakers on the upper perimeter of the buildings and aimed them toward the racing apron. Both systems use Lab Gruppen amplifiers, a Peavey NION DSP, a Shure announce microphone and a Denon solid-state player
for canned announcements.
