Sydney 2000 Olympic Games were held in city of Australia from September 15 to October 1, 2000 with more than 10,000 athletes in 300 events. We have designed the sound systems for 34 venues where included not only indoor but also outdoor events. Computer Acoustic Simulation software was originally developed to support designing sound system for each venue. It summarizes to maintain high quality sound and good intelligibility in case of long distance transmission even for outdoor venues by using digital technology. Furthermore sound pressure level (SPL) of each venue was measured during the actual Games. This paper describes how sound systems for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games were designed and performed.
