Athletic Fields with Half-Mile Hailers

Lincolnwood High School
Panhandle Community Unit school District #2

507 North Prairie Street
Raymond, IL 62560

Superintendent / Elementary Principal:

Mr. Aaron Hopper

High School Principal:

Mr. Kendal Elvidge

Athletic Director:

Mr. Joshua Stone

Dear AmpliVox,

I am writing you to express how thrilled I am with your equipment. Three years ago I installed 2 Half-Mile Hailers at our baseball field and they are working fantastic. This year, I installed the same system the baseball field has at our soccer field. In the near future, I will also be adding a system at the softball field. I also plan on updating our gymnasium speakers with Half-Mile Hailers.

These systems save our coaches so much time. Instead of having to lug our big speakers and all the wiring, the coaches just have to show up, plug in the speakers, and go because the speakers are permanently mounted and are able to stay up all year long.

Here in Illinois we go through some pretty tough weather, and they are still going strong. Most importantly, the quality of the sound is outstanding. The neighborhood surrounding the baseball field tells me all the time they can hear the music and announcements during baseball games.

I would highly recommend this system to anyone who is looking to upgrade or install a new system. It saves so much time, very high quality and will not break the bank.
