Brasstown Bald may be so remote that even GPS mapping systems can’t find it, but Technomad is there.
Local dealer CANA recently installed the black Vernal ultra-compact, weatherproof, full-range loudspeaker on the highest mountain in Georgia – 4,784 feet above sea level to be exact. A climb up the steps and over the rail was all that it took to get the speakers installed atop the Brasstown Bald Visitor Center.
The forestry service will use the speakers to make announcements to guests visiting the grounds of the visitor center. While we think the speakers are a good reason to visit the center, the taxidermy exhibit of bears right below the speakers is a pretty compelling reason to visit too.
Located in the northeastern section of the state of Georgia, the off-season temperatures and weather at Brasstown Bald can be pretty rugged. There is a recorded low temperature of -27 F and the winds, fog and storms can get fierce. However, the weatherproof Vernal system will continue to bring high-quality sound to every announcement from the park service.

Summer is in full swing, but Fall’s coming. In a little pre-celebration of our busiest time of year, we thought we’d give you a tour of some of our favorite stadium audio installations.
|Amazing Stadium in Ethopia, near the Red Sea. Quite ‘far from home’, an array of Noho Ci loudspeakers provide excellent sound for this world-class soccer and aquatics venue.
Tacoma Washington Historic Stadium. Installed right on the salt water of the Sound. Technomad weatheproof loudspeakers sound great while withstanding extreme coastal environments. Click for photos, a map, and more.
|French Soccer Stadium On the island of Corsica in the Mediterranean Sea! Click for install photos and current weather.
|Jamsil Olympic Baseball Stadium, Seoul Korea seats 30 thousand fans. Click for photos and a view from space. Multiple Technomad stadium loudspeakers deployed.
|Alvin Texas High School Stadium, a great install right near the Gulf Coast – with all the heat and rain that implies. Click for photos and the current weather (hot) in Alvin.
|Harvard University – four Technomad Noho C loudspeakers, mounted high on lighting poles at opposite sidelines at the center of the multi-purpose field. This easily blanketed the bleachers, sidelines and fields with crisp, clear audio for the first soccer game of the season..
An install at a university much older than the USA.
|Stadium Home Videos and Comments – some great video footage of Technomad stadium installs, and comments from the folks who put them in. Let us know if you’ve got photos to share of your install.
|Wildcat Stadium – super example of a Scoreboard PA system, where the loudspeakers are mounted on the scoreboard and powered by a PowerChiton waterproof amplifier. Wireless or wired signal comes from the pressbox.

As fans file into the bleachers at the Home of the Wildcats, the crowd can now clearly hear the EHS Fight Song as it fills the entire Wildcat Stadium over the recently upgraded PA System. Enterprise High School in Enterprise Alabama chose a top-of-the line Scoreboard PA System to provide great-sounding audio quality at their Stadium. The system is simple to install and operate, producing clear speech and playing satisfying music year-round. The system is based on Technomad’s flagship Berlin 15H outdoor stadium loudspeaker.
Not only does the high-powered Scoreboard PA system project sound clearly, but also can weather harsh elements from intense humidity to powerful storms. Technomad’s loudspeakers have proven their weather resistant abilities by regularly withstanding the severe and unpredictable weather in the Gulf of Mexico. The U.S. made and military-derived loudspeakers were created to overcome any challenge with ease.
The weatherproof system will continue to bring high-quality sound to every game at Wildcat Stadium, rain or shine.
At Technomad, we combine advanced weatherproofing technology with military-specification enclosures and first-rate acoustic designs. The result? Clear, intelligible speech and high-quality music even in challenging outdoor applications.
