Thread: Tannoy system

  1. #1

    Tannoy system

    Not much to moan about with Hibs at the moment so thought I'd give it a go.

    How bad is the tannoy system? Stadium announcer sounded muffled and seems to be getting worse. SOL sounded quiet too. Petrie out 😉

    Clear as a bell in the West. Compliments the prawn sandwiches nicely.

    not good in the East and has been poor for years despite the fans' pleas. don't know what the answer could be but surely it could be better without too much investment?

    I remember it being muffled from the day the new east stand opened.. but even at quiet games it was a muffled sound..

    Absolutely awful in the east stand, at least in my area anyway.

    If there was ever an announcement that we really had to hear, the consequences might not be so good.

    We have had issues for a number of years but we have been trying to make the best of what we have. I think the new equipment has definiarelt made a difference. This feedback is hugely appreciated guys

    The speakers I viewed as a one-off to get then place jumping like they did for DniPro.

    Clear as a bell in the FF5 upper near the back. Certainly heard that Hearts were off the back of a cup defeat and later that natural order had been restored! Thanks for input to a great Friday night out!

    I was in the east last season and it was absolutely brutal.

    Itís still terrible in the East

    Been saying this for about 3 years.

    Shame as I canít hear any announcements and couldnít even tell you who the half time guest were half the time.

    Shame as getting the whole stadium fixed would add to the match day experience.

    What do we want to do? Spend £200k on a new PA system or sign Scott Allan permwnantly? Thems the choices.

    Iím pretty sure a PA system to a certain standard is a legal requirement. Iím also pretty sure savings could be found elsewhere rather than the opportunity cost being Scotty.

    Why canít we get a system like Ibrox? Their speakers are about 6 times the size. Obviously the stadium is bigger but somewhere in the middle would do.

    Was loud and clear in the section of the east stand where I sit (FF end), could hear the references to Hearts Cup exit, their fight for a top 6 spot and the 7-0 game no problem

    I take ití itís to much to ask for a couple o sets of stairs at the back of the east to save standing for half an hour at the end of every game! 😉

    I've said that on here before.

    Gods know what would happen if there was an emergency.

    As it is I moved back to the West to save ten minutes standing around waiting for movement in the queue to reach me.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    You hoovered a lot of people in with that fact.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.
