Stadium Family lounge to get high performance Audio-Video makeover.

(Medford, NJ) -Sept. 6, 2004 -Home Electronic Systems integration specialist Frankentek, Inc. of Medford, NJ has entered into an agreement with Spectacor to retrofit the players and family lounge at the Wachovia Center, Philadelphia's premiere sports and entertainment venue. Frankentek will partner with California Audio Technologies (CAT), the custom speaker manufacturer, Audio Design Associates (ADA), AMX and other vendors to turn the sterile atmosphere of the current lounge into a warm, friendly entertainment venue for the players' families and children, where they can relax and enjoy time away from the game.


Working with noted interior designer Ken Granderson, a comfortable design highlighted by a 61" Plasma TV, 2 smaller LCD TV's, 2 gaming stations and a full Dolby Digital Surround sound system will be installed before the first Philadelphia 76er's pro basketball game is played this fall. The room will feature a kitchen/breakfast bar area for refreshments, a kids' nook for games and gaming and a sectional sofa for watching the game or movies. The project marks the first major renovation for the players/family lounge since the center opened in 1996. Frankentek is the project manager and responsible overall for all aspects of the retrofit.
