For more than 20 years, Boston residents and visitors have enjoyed the sounds of New England summer at the waterfront Boston Harbor Hotel’s Summer Concert Series. For the event’s 22nd year, the ‘Summer in the City Entertainment Series’ got a boost from Jeff Hansen’s All Tech Sound and Production Services Group, Inc. with the installation of six new Technomad Paris speakers.
The new sound system replaced 15-year-old speakers. To find the best solution for the crowd-friendly outdoor event running Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights each summer from June through August, Hansen’s team researched the best products available on the market. The biggest challenge for the installation was moving sight lines between the individual speakers. Installed on pylons in the ocean, which also hold the Boston Harbor Hotel’s visitor-friendly dock, the speakers abut a dock that moves up and down with the water line. The concert series needed low-profile speakers installed that were both pleasing to the eye for thousands of visitors who pass by weekly, but also offered good sound dispersion, while overcoming the sight-line challenge.
Technomad Paris speakers were the only audio product on the market that All Tech Sound found that fit the full bill. “We were looking for something that gave us good coverage and excellent sound quality,” said Jeff Hansen, owner, All Tech Sound and Production Services Group, Inc. “The new Technomad Paris speakers give the outdoor Boston Harbor Hotel’s Summer Concert Series a much warmer sound, very good dispersion throughout a wide area, and a great sound quality. For speakers with such a low profile, this is an impressive mix.”
The Technomad MP Series offers weatherproof, full-range speakers that are compact in design and high in performance. Built for permanent outdoor installation to work in all weather conditions, the speakers offer horn-loaded compression drivers paired with powerful state-of-the-art low frequency drivers to produce clear and intelligible sound in any environment. The Paris is the largest and most powerful of the MP Series.
During the summer series, concert goers relax to the sounds of Sinatra, Big Bands, and Jazz. The free concerts are a summer highlight for visitors to Boston’s Harborwalk Terrace and one of the city’s most anticipated summer traditions for long-time residents. As the sun sets, the harbor comes alive with the upbeat sound of bands performing on the hotel’s floating barge stage. This year they sound even better!
With a 25-year legacy, Technomad continues to make all of its products locally in Deerfield, Mass., and work with 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.
