A History Lesson on Amplivox

Amplivox is known for its great sound systems, quality lecterns, and wonderful customer service. One thing we also like to boast about is our rich history. Located in Northbrook, IL, Amplivox has been a leader in sound equipment production since 1952. It was founded by Norm Ackerman under the name Perma Power.

Perma Power introduced its line of sound equipment known as Amplivox in the 1960's. At the time, the company was producing one of the first residential radio-controlled garage door openers, supplying Craftsman garage door openers to Sears. In the late 1970s, the company added power outlet strips, surge suppressors, power conditioners and uninterruptible power systems (UPS) for computers. In 1995, Donald Roth acquired the company and continued the tradition of producing quality products at affordable prices.

Amplivox has continued to offer quality sound equipment and is now working toward its 60th anniversary. We are excited about the possibilities that the future holds and want to serve our customers with the utmost excellence. We have made many strides to reach out to our community with our Pink Podiums and our effort to help the environment.

The videos below provide an excellent example of how our quality sound systems have modernized since our old "Perma Power" days. The first video is a Perma Power Roving Rostrum and the second video is the new Amplivox Roving Rostrum (which has been proven to beat the competition).
