Technomad introduces the weatherproof WallBox wet area amplifier-mixer.
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.|
Want to upgrade a stadium of your own? Check out our Weatheproof Turn-Key Stadium PA Systems, with complete packages for facilities of any size. We’ve built the world’s best outdoor audio systems since 1995.
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.

“I hope all is well with you and the folks at Technomad!
I just wanted to share with you some pictures from a recent project involving Technomad loudspeakers and mounts.
These pictures are from the WNC Nature Center‘s new Grand Entrance and Festival Events Plaza. We installed three 70v Viennas and mounts with one of the speakers providing audio to the new entrance parking area and the other two units providing coverage the Plaza. …the weatherproof Vienna’s provide excellent sound reinforcement for live events as well as regular and seasonal background music. The client was very impressed with the quality of sound and it’s ability to withstand the elements (the Vienna that provides audio to the parking entrance is fully exposed and was constantly getting rained on while we were installing it!).
The last picture from this group is from a previous Technomad installation at the Zoo (you may remember it as the Otter Falls exhibit).
I call it “Technomad: Communing with Nature”. By the way, that system is still going strong and used everyday without issue.
If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call.

The Western North Carolina Nature Center is a 42-acre zoological park in Western North Carolina operated by the City of Asheville’s (NC) Parks and Recreation department. Until 1973, it was known as the Asheville City Zoo and was then renamed the Children’s Zoo and Nature Center.
What is now the Friends of WNC Nature Center, a 501c3 non-profit charity, was developed to educate the public about the natural history, flora and fauna of the Southern Appalachians and to develop a public responsibility for its conservation. The Center is now home to over sixty species of wild and domestic animals and hundreds of species of plants and all representative of this unique bioregion.
Every Saturday night throughout the spring and summer, South Dakota auto-enthusiasts head to the bleachers of the Miller Central Speedway to watch the Green Flag fall and to root for their favorite drivers. Miller Central Speedway is a half-mile oval dirt track located in central South Dakota. Home to WISSOTA Auto Racing events, the Speedway features Late Model, Street Stock, Superstock, as well as Pump-N-Pak Purestocks. MSC is a longstanding institution in the Miller community and the Speedway celebrated its 50th racing seaon in 2015.
Several improvements have been made to the Speedway since new owners Dale and Susan Hargens took charge. Pit work, track re-shaping, and an improved concession selection were the first upgrades on the to-do list. An enhanced audio experience has been the most recent. In spring of 2018, the Miller Speedway team worked with Jeff Hanson of Unique Sound Installations to upgrade the horns that had been broadcasting track events since 1975. Jeff pointed the MSC team towards Technomad’s Paris loudspeakers. The Paris loudspeakers are compact, completely weatherproof and powerful enough to compete with the ever-present roar of engines at the Speedway. Four Paris Loudspeakers were installed on the Miller Speedway press box.
“I included an easy-to-operate sound processor with a strong amp and microphone. They loved the sound quality!” says Mr. Hanson.
A week before the first big race of the season, Jeff received a call from Dave. The audience for the first race was going to be larger than expected, could they add two more Paris speakers?
“With short notice, I contacted Technomad and explained my situation,” says Jeff. “Without hesitation, you guys shipped the speakers that day and I was able to install the additional two speakers the day of the big race. Thanks to the people at Technomad. You helped me secure a customer and make a few friends along the way.”
We’re proud to know that the Paris loudspeakers are going strong at Miller Central Speedway and appreciate partners like Jeff and Unique Sound Installations that invite us to be a part of cool projects like this one.
