Mission Critical
Direct AV: West Gates at Tom
Bradley International Terminal at
Los Angeles International Airport
California-based integrator
specifies beam-steering
arrays to ensure a safe,
enjoyable transportation
experience. By Dan Ferrisi
AFTER MORE THAN SIX YEARS of design
and construction, the new West Gates at
Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los
Angeles International Airport (LAX) opened
in June 2021. The new concourse is situated
in the central area of the airfield, west of
Tom Bradley International Terminal.
The $1.6 billion addition to LAX features
15 aircraft gates and an interior that's organized
into a series of " neighborhoods. "
Each one includes multiple aircraft gates, a
restroom core, and a wide selection of various
retail and concession spaces. Excellent
audio was recognized as an essential component
throughout the 750,000-squarefoot
concourse construction to produce
crisp and intelligible sound to help the
airport's millions of annual travelers.
Those factors drove California-based systems
integrator Direct AV to be very choosy
in creating the right loudspeaker solutions.
The installation at the West Gates at Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX is part of
a larger, years-long renovation that LAX is undertaking.
And LAX officials worked with their integrator
partner to design and install the gate
announcement system for the terminal.
Ultimately, Direct AV opted for Iconyx
Gen5 arrays from Renkus-Heinz. The arrays
provide an elegant solution to acoustical
challenges, and the enclosures' slim form
factor blends into any environment.
A Safe, Enjoyable Experience
The installation at the West Gates at Tom
Bradley International Terminal at LAX is part
of a larger, years-long renovation that LAX is
undertaking.
Jeff Barrett, systems design engineer at
Direct AV, and his team worked very closely
with the Renkus-Heinz team - specifically,
Garrison Parkin, western regional sales
manager. They specified more than 30 Renkus-Heinz
Iconyx Gen5 beam-steering arrays.
Due to architectural constraints, the

Iconyx Gen5 loudspeakers had to be
mounted relatively high on the adjacent
walls - around 12 feet above the finished

floor level. If conventional loudspeakers had
been used, it would have compromised the
direct-to-reverberant sound. Thus, Direct AV
opted for the Iconyx Gen5 digitally steerable
loudspeakers as an appropriate solution.
With Iconyx Gen5 arrays, users can digitally
steer the sound down to the travelers. As
a result, they get the direct sound element,
rather than having it reflected to the walkways.
This delivers excellent sound quality
right to where the people are, and keeps the
sound away from reflective surfaces.
The Direct AV team installed a mix of
more than 30 Iconyx IC8, IC16 and IC32
arrays within the West Gates.
