AmpliVox Gets Moment in the Spotlight on America’s Got Talent




For Don Roth, CEO of Northbrook-based AmpliVox, it is always a treat to see his company’s products pop up in unexpected places.






A few months ago, his phone started ringing when friends saw an AmpliVox megaphone being used to guide daredevil Nick Wallenda on his blindfolded tightrope walk between Chicago’s Marina Towers.






Then on July 22, a similar megaphone was spotted on the NBC-TV’s “America’s Got Talent.”

In a short clip, a product staff member uses the AmpliVox Mity-Meg to deliver instructions to hundreds of contestants as they wait to audition.


That same week, a similar megaphone was pictured in a local paper being used at a community sidewalk sale.



"Our megaphones are extremely versatile, so it’s not really a surprise to see them used in so many ways," notes Roth.

"They’re lightweight, powerful, and run for hours on rechargeable batteries. It’s no wonder that they’re so popular."

Fallen Marines and Sailor Honored with Help from AmpliVox Sound Systems




US Marines, Naval Officers, veterans and community members gathered on July 25 at Fort Sheridan, Illinois for a somber and dignified ceremony in memory of armed forces members killed by a gunman in Chattanooga, Tennessee.


They were joined by 10th District Congressman Bob Dold, who came to honor the four marines and one sailor who died at the Chattanooga Navy Reserve Center on July 16, 2015.

The outdoor service was enhanced by the use of a portable PA from AmpliVox Sound Systems, based in nearby Northbrook, Illinois.

The system used at the ceremony, AmpliVox’s SW915 Digital Audio Travel Partner, is a convenient and versatile all-in-one system for indoor or outdoor use.

The 250-watt amplifier clearly projects voices for audiences up to 7,500 people, and its built-in Bluetooth™ module enables music streaming directly from smartphones or other devices.

The portable unit runs for up to 10 hours on its rechargeable batteries, allowing for easy set-up in outdoor venues.


“AmpliVox is honored to have been part of this important remembrance ceremony at Fort Sheridan,” noted Don Roth, AmpliVox CEO.

“Our products are frequently used in houses of worship and similar settings where reliability and clarity of sound are of utmost importance. We’re indebted to all members of the armed services for the many sacrifices they make, and proud to play any part we can in sharing these messages of support.”

Audio Portable Buddy is the Friendly Small PA System



Announcers and tour guides are in love with how the AmpliVox Audio Portable Buddy makes their job so much easier.

Our very own sales manager, Bill Gamber, witnessed this first hand when he was at the Encompass Championship last week, a local senior PGA tour event held at the North Shore Country Club in Glenview, IL. The tournament had two announcers "yelling" the names of the players on the first and tenth tees as a way of introducing them to the assembled galleries.

After a quick visit back to AmpliVox, Bill returned to the Encompass Championship with two SW222 Audio Portable Buddies and went straight to the tournament office explaining who he was and the solution that he had for them. With a flip of the switch the Audio Portable Buddy's were turned on, put into place, and the announcers and crowd couldn't have been more grateful.



A casual stoll along Chicago's lakefront and through Lincoln Park for our audio technical manager, Daniel Tramposh, with his wife ended up on an unplanned visit to the Lincoln Park Zoo, where they came across their tour guide using an AmpliVox Audio Portable Buddy.

Extremely lightweight, the Audio Portable Buddy comes in a travel-friendly briefcase size package and can clearly project your voice or music up to 1,000 people, making it ideal for a walking tour for a guide to use at the zoo.

The 50 watt battery powered sound system is light enough to be carried around your shoulder and goes anywhere you go.

The voice amplification relieves speakers from straining their voice over the busy atmosphere and background noise of the outside environment.

Moderately improve your sound coverage and voice clarity while comfortably being heard throughout the group.

Communicate to your audience with minimal interference and without raising your voice.

Dual wireless can accommodate multiple presenters by adding a second Wireless Mic Kit (sold separately), allowing two presenters to be wireless simultaneously with the freedom to roam within a 300 ft. radius.

Record your presentation as it is happening. Line out connects to other audio devices for enhanced playback or recording.

Runs up to 200 hours on 10 "D" cell batteries (not included) , or use the optional, rechargeable AmpliVox NiCad battery pack and S1460 AC adapter / recharger.

Weatherproof and scuff-resistant molded black luggage-type plastic case holds up to abuse and protects amplifier.

Easy connection to smartphones, tablets, computers, video projectors with aux. input and separate volume and tone controls.

Just power up and speak! Simple, at-a-glance controls and inputs make the Audio Portable Buddy easy to use. A complete presentation system built into a rugged, compact carrying case.
