While the pool environment—with water, humidity, chlorine, and abundant ambient noise—can be challenging when it comes to speaker installation, Auburn AV turned to Technomad for a recent natatorium installation at a boarding school in Tallulah Falls, Ga.
Auburn AV CEO John Crawford chose a mixture of Noho and of Vernal speakers from Technomad to provide clear distributed audio across the school’s pool deck, bleachers and viewing balcony. Together, the compact speakers provide two-way, full-range and weatherproof loudspeakers for events, swim meets, music and more. To minimize the effect of the venue acoustics, each area is zoned so speakers can be turned on and off as best suited for each event.
Crawford selected the speakers because they “are rugged and reliable in an area where it is tough to provide quality audio. They were the best fit for our needs and their technical service is great,” he said.
Ideal for sport and performance environments, Noho speakers are Technomad’s flagship product, with sleek design and a rotationally molded shell with outstanding acoustic properties. The three-layer WeatherTech grill protects the weatherproof driver from moisture and the elements. Noho speakers are available in 14 colors with the option of wall or pole mount.
The Vernal line of ultra-compact, full-range speakers from Technomad was developed for permanent outdoor installation in all climates. The speakers account for higher ambient noise levels in the pool environment to produce clear sounds through state-of-the-art low frequency drivers. Designed for easy installation, the Vernal is the smallest speaker in the Technomad MP Series. Also available in 14 colors, the speakers include dual-mode operation and can be wall- or yoke-mounted.
With locations in Auburn, Ala., and Ayden, N.C., Auburn AV is known for its high-quality installation, design, production and rentals of audio, video and lighting.
“This project featured a relatively small pool deck, which makes maintenance a real challenge,” Crawford added. “We wanted something that could withstand direct contact with pool water while providing quality audio and an extended service life.”
Making products locally in Deerfield, Mass. for more than 25 years, Technomad supports clients across the globe, including Disney, Universal Studios, the U.S. military and many more. The world’s first truly weatherproof professional-grade loudspeakers are recognized for their quality, durability and performance.
