Paris Loudspeakers sound off at Miller Central Speedway

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.

Technomad Vernal Speakers Celebrate 10 Years Aboard Marine Cruise Boat

Climb aboard one of Sarasota Bay Explorers Sea Life Encounter Cruise’s and you’ll be in for a treat. The marine biologist led tours take visitors on a 1-hour 45-minute cruise through Sarasota and Roberts Bay, where tourists observe manatees, bottlenose dolphins, puffer fish and more. The tours are broadcast over Technomad’s very own ultra-compact and waterproof, Vernal speakers. Six Vernal speakers are strategically placed throughout the 40-foot pontoon boats ensuring that every passenger can clearly hear announcements on wildlife sightings and learn from the expert biologists on the intricacies of the bay ecosystem.

Bob Heere, Director of Operations at Sarasota Bay Explorers, originally heard about the speakers via a word of mouth recommendation. The original Vernals were installed in 2007 along with a Lanolin electric paste to protect the terminals.  “They performed wonderfully,” says Bob, “they did exactly what they were supposed to do and lasted 10+ years despite daily exposure to salt water, fog, and sea spray.”

In 2018, the original Vernal’s were finally retired and replaced by a half-dozen brand new Vernal’s which were installed by sound technicians from Prime AV. Even though they spent their life at sea, when disassembled, the Vernal’s showed no evidence of internal damage or salt intrusion, a testament toTechnomad’s rugged, weatherproof designs.

“If you have a need for an outdoor speaker in any environment, these speakers will meet that need,” Mr. Heere attests. “If they can sit out in salt conditions for 10 years, they can survive anywhere.”

Loudspeakers at the Waterpark – Adventure Cove, Singapore

Remarkable photos shared by RockComms in Singapore, of Technomad loudspeakers and subwoofers installed at the Adventure Cove Waterpark (Bluewater Bay).  The water park is part of Resorts World Sentosa which operates
the Universal Studio franchise in Singapore.

In addition to the awesome flying whale sculptures (!) you can see the Technomad Berlin 6040 full range loudspeaker in Desert Sand color, some Oslo 18 subwoofers (originally developed for Disney Imagineering) also in Desert Sand, and pole–mounted Paris 616 loudspeakers.

Singapore presents a tough environment for loudspeakers, with average temperatures around 31º C (88º F) during the day with little seasonal variation. Singapore receives a considerable amount of rainfall – approximately 2340mm (92 inches) annually. The region is extremely humid, with humidity levels usually between 70% and 90%. (Source: World Travel Guide).

That’s just the standard weather – add the corrosive environment of a chlorinated pool and you have an extraordinary challenge for any loudspeaker.  Fortunately Technomad’s military-grade construction and no-compromises audio design is ready to meet the challenge.
