BOSTON, July 21, 2009 – Technomad LLC, a leader in weatherproof loudspeakers and audio systems since 1995, announces that Chattanooga Sound, a sound contractor based in Chattanooga, Tenn., has installed two Berlin weatherproof loudspeakers on a new soccer field for the Tennessee State Soccer Association in the nearby town of Cleveland.
The Berlin is the most powerful loudspeaker Technomad offers, offering unmatched projection, fidelity and power in an all-environment, IP56-compliant design. According to Charlie Rhodes, president of Chattanooga Sound, the soccer association approached him to procure and design the end-to-end system after discovering Technomad online. The Berlins are mounted on opposite sideline poles, one pointing in each direction toward the field to cover the entire venue.
â€œThe Berlins offer a very high SPL and a two-inch driver that makes a world of difference when projecting spoken word over long distances,â€? said Rhodes. â€œThese are full-range loudspeakers that reproduce lows, mids and highs very well, and the two-inch driver helps project the mids and highs for that extra distance. The musical reproduction is also outstanding, although voice is the most important aspect of this system.â€?
Rhodes first came across Technomad about five years ago when he replaced an audio system at Rock City, a 15-acre tourist destination outside of Chattanooga that was forced to continually replace outdoor speakers adversely affected by inclement weather, high heat and humidity. Rhodes installed more than 20 Technomad Vernal loudspeakers at Rock City that continue to operate after four-plus years of unprotected use.
â€œLike Rock City, the Berlins for this project will be sitting out in the open, and in this part of the state we get all kinds of weather with temperatures that range from near zero to more than 100 degrees,â€? said Rhodes. â€œThe bonus is that the weatherproof design in no way compromises the sound quality.â€?
The end-to-end system designed by Rhodes also features an Ashly line mixer, dbx processor, Shure wireless microphones and a Denon CD player. The system was installed by local volunteers with Rhodes on hand to consult and set audio and EQ levels.
Technomad LLC, founded in 1995, designs and manufactures loudspeaker systems for the professional audio and security/military technology industries. The company invented the first reliable full-range weatherproof loudspeaker and now offers eight models ranging in power from the 60-watt Vernal 15 to the 800-watt Chicago 15/12 subwoofer. In 2000, Technomad introduces its range of complete Turnkey PA systems that have turned previous complex integration jobs into simple, one-line orders. In 2007, the company introduced two non-loudspeaker products to its inventory: The Schedulon automatic mp3 player and recording system, and the PowerChiton series of compact weatherproof amplifier modules.
