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. [ Have a smaller stadium that needs audio?  Check out our Turn-Key Stadium PA Systems. ]

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).

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.

DragonFly Excels Poolside in California

Hi Technomad,

DragonFly_poolsideThe DragonFly is still amazing.  I would love to share two stories with you.  We had our banquet at a communion hall at a local church.  Our parents set us up with a [redacted] amplifier and microphone.  It made our coaches’ voice “tinny”, and the volume was inadequate for the size of the room.  My assistant principal did me the favor of driving to school and grabbing the DragonFly… It made a HUGE difference.  People in the back could hear me clearly and the sound quality was superb.  It saved the evening.

The other story is for our summer school that starts this Monday.  So my game plan for this summer is to have the DragonFly with me and in use for 8 hours a day.  Five hours in the classroom and three hours on the pool deck.  The fact that it is not heavy will make it easier to move back and forth between the classroom and pool daily.  I did a sound check in the new classroom and the quality of sound in the back of the room is tremendous.  Clear, loud, and maintains the bass of my voice.  I will also be using the DragonFly much more frequently as we start water polo practice.

Attached are a few shots from the end of swim season during practice.

Thank you for such a great product.

All the best,
