Publish date:

BOSTON, November 13, 2006 - Technomad Associates, LLC today announced upgrades to all six models of its Turnkey PA system packages along with new lower pricing. Technomad Turnkey PA systems are complete, pre-integrated, plug and play packages that allow the user to be up and running quickly. All six models have been reduced in price between two and seven percent.

“Technomad Turnkey PA systems have proven popular in outdoor venues because of their ruggedness, reliability, weatherproof design, and exceptional audio quality”, said David Meyer, Commercial Sales Manager for Technomad Associates, LLC. “These upgrades represent our reaction to customer requests for more flexibility in Technomad systems. And while we have reduced the costs of these systems, our weatherproof loudspeakers remain the heart of the systems, while providing our customers with more tools to enhance their applications.”

Technomad Turnkey PA systems feature their legendary loudspeakers, an audio mixer, power amplifier, speaker cables, speaker mounting brackets, a dynamic microphone with cable, and a rack enclosure. New upgrades include:

Rack Enclosure Size: All rack enclosure cabinets have been upgrade from 4RU to 6RU, offering customers additional space to add source, processing and other equipment to augment the system.

Audio Mixing: The audio mixer is upgraded from four to six channels, offers four stereo pairs of line-level inputs and two microphone inputs, allowing for a combination of wired and wireless microphones. The mixer also features a front-mounted XLR connector for easy microphone access; a front-mounted 1/8” stereo jack for popular mp3 players such as the Apple iPod; individual bass and treble controls; and a headphone output for signal monitoring.

AC Power: A commercial AC power strip has been mounted to the rear rail of the enclosure, providing cleaner, safer power. The new AC strip also simplifies installation and connections for end users. Customers have eight open AC outlets for powering accessories.

The new 6RU rack enclosure is now supplied with both a 1RU and 2RU blank panel to allow for more flexibility in additional rack component choices while preserving a clean rack appearance.
