Video: A look at Disney California Adventure’s parade route system

While unnoticed by many, Disney California Adventure’s parade route audio system is a complex web of audio nodes that can be combined into a single seamless show system. Dozens of weather-resistant EAW KF300s coupled with custom above-ground and underground subwoofers are spread across the park, serving as Disney California Adventure’s foreground music system throughout most of the day. However, during showtime, the system can be deployed through a central control system known as Audio Central. There, technicians at Disney can control and route audio to each tower when needed, and integrate designated towers into larger show systems like World of Color.

In many respects, this is one of the most complex and advanced large-scale distributed audio systems at any theme park in the world. Only other Disney theme parks can rival this system.
