7 New Ways To Look Good and Sound Good from AmpliVox


As well as constantly improving our existing products, Amplivox Sound Systems is continually introducing new ones. Here are 7 New Ways To Look Good and Sound Good from AmpliVox.




1. AmpliVox Solves PA Challenges at Gala Event


Looking for tips on how to fill a large venue with clear sound? AmpliVox CEO Don Roth recently published an instructive case study in Successful Meetings Magazine. AmpliVox provided portable PA systems for a charity gala, overcoming the challenges of a noisy crowd and massive space to engage audience members in a fundraising auction and other activities. Bottom line: the right equipment with the right placement delivers outstanding results.





2. New! Universal Digital Wireless Microphone Works with Any Sound System


Project your voice through any PA, computer, boombox, or other system with AmpliVox’s new S1697 Universal Wireless Microphone Headset. This new 2.4 GHz digital mic plugs into any system with audio input allowing you to walk in a range of up to 50 feet with crystal-clear amplified sound. Use as a handheld or headset mic – just plug in and you’re ready to go.



3. Thoughtful Design Supports ADA Rule Compliance

When employers need to make furniture purchases that meet the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, it makes sense to choose products that work well for all employees. AmpliVox has several new products that combine features like height adjustability and wide access points to serve individuals needing wheelchairs, while maintaining the attractive style and functionality that appeals to all users. Check out AmpliVox’s SN3900 ADA Sit-to-Stand Lectern and CT4880 Collaboration Huddle Table to see how ADA-compliant furniture can easily fit in your workplace.





4. New! Headsets for Swim and Fitness Instructors

Swim teachers and fitness class leaders can now enjoy top-quality sound amplification with AmpliVox’s new waterproof and water-resistant fitness packages. Eliminate vocal strain and improve group instruction with these bundles that include waterproof, wireless headset microphones and comfortable beltpacks for transmitters. These packages pair with a variety of AmpliVox portable PA systems for any size room.





5. Hospitality Businesses Make a Great Impression with AmpliVox Lecterns


Restaurant owners spend countless hours considering the furniture choices that make up their dining rooms. However, before they sit down in the dining room, customers make judgments on the quality of the restaurant based on their first points of contact: the valet stand and the host station. Establish the positive first impression that customers appreciate with attractive, durable lecterns from AmpliVox.





6. New! Control up to Four Wireless Mics with AmpliVox's Quad Wireless Receiver System


The new S9190 UHF Quad Wireless Microphone Receiver System offers four channels of uncompromising audio quality in a space-efficient single unit. The 2RU rotational molded chassis houses four independent receivers that can be used simultaneously, each with 16 UHF channels of selectivity, audio and RF indicators, volume control, and a balanced XLR connector with summed output. It can be rack-mounted or taken on the road with its durable, compact design.





7. New! Mobile Height-Adjustable Desk Doubles as a Lectern

More and more, doctors are warning that too much sitting can be as bad for your health as smoking. Stand up for your health with the new AmpliVox SN3405 Pneumatic Lift Sit/Stand Desk! This versatile furniture piece moves from 28” to 42.5” with a tap of your foot, allowing you to switch from sitting to standing at any time with ease. Plus, it can be used as a standing lectern for classrooms, conference rooms, and other settings.

S1697 2.4 GHz Wireless Microphone Guides the Front Line Trolley Tours at the National Naval Aviation Museum




When the tour guides from the National Naval Aviation Museum were looking for a new headset microphone to use on their Flight Line Trolley Tours, they tested and fell in love with the AmpliVox S1697 2.4 GHz Universal Digital Wireless Microphone Headset.

Hank Martin, a trolley driver and tour guide was so pleased with his observations of the S1697 that he wrote back to us and said:



"During this past week, on different days, six trolley drivers used the S1697 wireless headset during a fifty-minute flight line tour on our 35 passenger trolley.

We spoke continuously using the headset.

The headset was plugged in to the trolley existing radio shack 40-watt amplifier that is connected to two typical small box speakers located overhead.


Total time that the 1697 was "on" is five and a half hours. The blue charge lights are still on! Could probably go several more tours. Every driver was impressed with the S1697 capability!

Following are individual comments regarding the headset:
  • 'sounds like a stereo system in the trolley'
  • 'clarity is outstanding'
  • 'no static feedback'
  • 'walk around capability is super'
  • 'no interference while trolley heaters, fan or air conditioning systems were operating'
  • 'love the wireless, hands free operation'
  • 'makes driving around the aircraft much safer'
  • 'headset is amazingly comfortable to wear - even under my hat'
bottom line... we all want one! "



The AmpliVox S1697 is an easy to use and affordable Universal digital wireless headset microphone system.

Its compact and lightweight design is a great solution for expanding your audio needs.

Plug receiver into any audio device (microphone / line in jack ) with a speaker and amplifier and start talking.
