BOSTON, May 5, 2008– Technomad Associates, LLC, a leader in weatherproof loudspeakers and Turnkey PA systems for the commercial pro audio market since 1995, will introduce new mounting yokes to address challenging outdoor loudspeaker installations for audio contractors and installers at the upcoming Infocomm 2008 convention (June 18-20, Booth C3613, Las Vegas Convention Center).The yokes will initially be available as accessories with Technomad Berlin and Noho C loudspeakers, two of the company’s more popular loudspeakers for outdoor PA systems in stadiums, theme parks, and other open air venues.
The new mounting yokes are essentially U shaped arms that give the contractor more flexibility for outdoor loudspeaker installations. The mounting yokes improve loudspeaker support on round surfaces such as outdoor poles and columns to provide a more secure installation than traditional mounting brackets. Flexibility is further enhanced when the yokes are used with Allen Products PoleStarÆ all-weather pole and column adapters, available as accessories through Technomad. Together, the Technomad mounting yokes and PoleStar adapters can maximize audio coverage by allowing the contractor to more accurately tilt or position the loudspeakers at the best angle.
Technomad will also show its Vienna 16 and Paris 616 loudspeakers, now available and shipping in new Version8 models. Technomad Vienna 16 and Paris 616 loudspeakers are part of the company’s MP Series, a range of weatherproof loudspeakers designed for permanent installation, indoors and outdoors. The Version8 models add compression drivers that provide an added 3dB of maximum continuous SPL and an added 10dB of dynamic range, ensuring voice intelligibility and musical output at all volume levels, with improved audio quality in the mid-to-upper frequency range.
Technomad Vienna 16 and Paris 616 loudspeakers are also available as part of the company’s Turnkey PA Systems, a full range of complete, pre-integrated, fixed or mobile audio solutions featuring Technomad loudspeakers, cables, mounting brackets, a dynamic microphone with cable, and a 6RU rack enclosure featuring a two-channel amplifier, six-channel mixer, and additional rack space for other equipment including CD players and power conditioners. These easy-to-install, user-friendly systems contain everything needed for rugged, high-quality outdoor sound. Visitors to the Technomad booth at Infocomm can learn more about the Turnkey PA Systems through various product and literature displays.
