Technomad Loudspeakers Make a Splash in Georgia

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.

Amazing Stadium and Pool Project, Ethiopia

Remarkable photos shared by our importer in Ethiopia.  An array of Noho Ci and Berlin loudspeakers provide audio for the brand-new Woldiya Stadium.  The stadium has a capacity of 25,600, and was completed in late 2016.

The Ethiosport blog writes “construction of the stadium will create opportunities for Woldia to host national and international competitions as it meets FIFA and IAAF requirements.

The Stadium has 10 entrance gates, a swimming pool, an eight lane competition track as well as basketball, handball, volleyball and tennis courts.

The facility also offers a world class lap swimming pool, and a competition level diving platform – both with Technomad audio systms as well.

These loudspeakers traveled a long way from our South Deerfield factory – over 6730 miles (10831 km).

Alex Orsag, Engineering Services Manager, writes “Hanover Community School Corporation is just now completing the renovation of some of their athletic fields. We installed Vienna speakers on four press boxes: Baseball, Softball, Soccer, and Tennis. In the Fall of 2013 we installed Berlin speakers on the Football Field press box. There are various photos of each of these. They have been using the system at the baseball and softball fields since early May, and the Football Field since 2013.

I spoke to Kevin Bachinski, the Athletic Director for Hanover Community Schools. Kevin said, ‘Since the new sound system was installed at the
Football Field a couple of years ago, the sound has been really great. We’ve just begun to use the new systems at the Baseball and Softball Fields, and everything is working well. Everyone is happy with these sound systems.'”.

Great update from Alex and Tri-Electronics, and the first installation we know of where Technomad is providing audio for FIVE sports at the same location: Baseball, Softball, Soccer,  Tennis, and Football.

Scoreboard Sound System at Berry College | Scoreboard PA

Technomad Berry College Scoreboard  - Scoreboard PA System and Scoreboard Audio System from Technomad upgrades ballfield stadium at Berry College.

Berry College of Mount Berry, Georgia recently upgraded the the William R. Bowdoin baseball stadium with a Technomad Scoreboard PA System.  The system features the weatherproof Technomad Berlin HQ loudspeakers, as well as a PowerChiton Waterproof Amplifier module.

“…exceptional Audio quality at any volume level and the coverage area is phenomenal”.

The school’s existing audio front end (signal sources and a multi-channel mixer) was patched to the remote Scoreboard PA System using RDL Twisted Pair signal transmission devices, which Technomad pre-integrated at the factory.   This analog technology delivers CD-quality audio over a single pair of Cat5/6 wiring.

Steve Hill of Berry College writes, “I first was introduced to the Technomad line of products several years ago at the Infocomm show in Orlando. After an informative conversation with the Technomad sales rep, I was excited to try a pair of NOHO enclosures at our soccer/Lacrosse field. Needless to say they performed as well as the Technomad rep had promised, so we decided to try another pair of NOHO’s at the football practice field and they too performed flawlessly. Our latest project was to replace our old baseball field sound system that was attached to the press box and relocate it to the scoreboard. We installed two Berlin’s and a PowerChiton amp, sending the audio signal via CAT6 cable. The system offers exceptional Audio quality at any volume level and the coverage area is phenomenal.  All of this coupled with great technical support from the team at Technomad is what makes Technomad my first choice for Audio”.
