Wildcat Stadium Upgrades to Technomad IPA3 Audio System

As fans file into the bleachers at the Home of the Wildcats, the crowd can now clearly hear the EHS Fight Song as it fills the entire Wildcat Stadium over the recently upgraded PA System. Enterprise High School in Enterprise Alabama chose a top-of-the line Scoreboard PA System to provide great-sounding audio quality at their Stadium. The system is simple to install and operate, producing clear speech and playing satisfying music year-round.   The system is based on Technomad’s flagship Berlin 15H outdoor stadium loudspeaker. 

Not only does the high-powered Scoreboard PA system project sound clearly, but also can weather harsh elements from intense humidity to powerful storms. Technomad’s loudspeakers have proven their weather resistant abilities by regularly withstanding the severe and unpredictable weather in the Gulf of Mexico. The U.S. made and military-derived loudspeakers were created to overcome any challenge with ease.

The weatherproof system will continue to bring high-quality sound to every game at Wildcat Stadium, rain or shine.

At Technomad, we combine advanced weatherproofing technology with military-specification enclosures and first-rate acoustic designs.    The result?  Clear, intelligible speech and high-quality music even in challenging outdoor applications.

Noho Weatherproof Loudspeakers at work in Alabama Music Venue


Technomad’s Noho weatherproof loudspeakers were put to the test during the inaugural Fireside Music Festival in Huntsville, Alabama. Forsyth Consulting designed and installed an outdoor sound system using six Noho weatherproof loudspeakers with 400 watt, 70 volt transformers for the newly constructed event space, The Camp at MidCity. Due to inclement weather, the speakers were installed using a boom lift in the rain and the first three days fo the festival were canceled. The Noho weatherproof loudspeakers withstood the conditions and were ready to perform when the sun came out for the last day of the festival.

Kevin Forsyth, President of Forsyth Consulting stated “The owner [of The Camp at MidCity] wanted great full range sound, and we gave it to him with Technomad being the only supplier who could deliver with less than two weeks’ notice. It was a significant success, and the owners loved the sound quality of the system and the aesthetics which matched the Camp Environment.” Forsyth stated the speakers were tapped at 400 watts, and driven with 400 watts per speaker providing more than enough volume and qualify full range audio for background music, wireless microphone, hardwired mic jack, and television audio to create a truly unique and flexible environment for a facility that is still evolving.

Forsyth went on to say, “We greatly appreciate RCP Development giving us the opportunity to demonstrate what could be done with short notice by Forsyth Consulting, Inc. With the cooperation of Rodger von Kries at Technomad, we were able to meet delivery in a very tight window. We are looking forward to more projects using the Technomad weatherproof loudspeakers”.

“The sound has been really great!” – Kevin Bachinski, Athletic Director

Our Dealer Tri-Electronics Inc. of Hammond IN shared some notes about the installation of multiple Technomad PA systems at a nearby athletic field complex.

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”.

Technomad at Western North Carolina Nature Center

IMAGOS Entertainment LLC of Miami FL shared these photos of their recent installation at the Western North Carolina Nature Center “Otter Falls” exhibit.

.

The equipment was installed at the Nature Center’s “Brandon’s Otter Falls” river otter habitat. IMAGOS worked with the Center’s Exhibit Coordinator to install the Technomad Turnkey rPA 70v-Volt System which included 6 Technomad Vernal 15T speakers. The system provides music and PA assistance to the Animal Keepers during their otter feeding and enrichment presentations.  Click here for more info on the mind-meltingly cute North American River Otter.

You can see Technomad Vernal 16T loudspeakers in the photos, but what you don’t see is the rest of the rPA system we delivered.  This quick-to-deploy 70-volt PA package includes amplification, a multi-channel mixer, wallmounts, and cabling.

The Vernal weatherproof loudspeaker is unique among ultra compact loudspeaker both in its rugged weatherproof construction, but also its compression-driver loaded high frequency section.  The latter means that the Vernal can handle live mic inputs without strain, and deliver crisp, articulate speech even in noisy environments that ‘consumer grade’ compact loudspeakers can’t match.

But technical audio details… See the adorable otter video below!
