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.

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.
