The unit provides sufficient storage space for a handheld microphone and cable, or other items.
In a typical application, the PowerChiton is installed on a lighting pole, connected to AC power from the pole. The PowerChiton drives a cluster of up to three loudspeakers. The Breakout Box is wired to the PowerChiton, and installed at eye level on the pole.
A coach or other user can walk up to the BreakoutBox, unlock it and immediately make announcements via the microphone or play music by connecting an iPod or similar source.
Together, the BreakoutBox and PowerChiton eliminate the need for a dedicated equipment room or press box – a complete PA system can be installed ‘naked’ on an outdoor structure or post, ready for use at a moments notice.
