Boston (November 6, 2006)–Technomad Associates, LLC, is celebrating its tenth anniversary. The company first burst on to the pro audio scene in the mid-1990s with the introduction of Mil-Spec loudspeaker systems, specifically designed for all-weather and highly abusive mobile and installation applications. Typically encased in “super-rugged military road case technology,” the speakers often wind up being used for a variety of professional audio and military applications.
“Technomad created its weatherproof product category when an in-house R&D project hit a nerve with our customers. Cruise ship companies and theme park audio departments offered to buy first-generation ‘beta’ samples of our weatherproof loudspeakers because they were unhappy with their other choices,” said Karl Von Kries, president of Technomad Associates, LLC. “The lack of all-weather high-fidelity loudspeakers as a specialized product category was a glaring industry omission. Technomad exclusively makes weatherproof products, so our cabinets, grill systems, customer drivers and networks are designed as one complementary system. This gives us a huge advantage over competitors who convert standard products into weather-resistant designs by adding special paints or slightly better grills–a compromise at best.”
Over the last decade, the company’s products have been used for high-profile installations in cruise ships, theme parks, sports stadiums, outdoor entertainment venues, and other harsh environment fixed system and mobile applications in military, government and private sectors around the world. Technomad’s Turnkey PA systems, introduced in 2000, increased the company’s profile with high school and collegiate athletic stadiums, providing users with Technomad loudspeakers, a 6-channel audio mixer, 2-channel power amplifier, speaker cables, speaker mounting brackets, a dynamic microphone with cable, and a 6RU rack enclosure.
