Powerful Megaphones – The Easiest Way to Be Heard




Of all the outstanding sound products made by AmpliVox, perhaps the most visible and versatile are our handheld megaphones.





These workhorse portable sound systems can be seen – and heard – in all kinds of settings, giving directions, making announcements, and delivering messages to large groups of listeners.





Fire departments and other first responders use our megaphones to make evacuations safer and more efficient.




Schools and camps rely on them to get kids where they need to be during assemblies, recess, and safety drills.




Political and social causes carry megaphones at rallies and marches.




AmpliVox megaphones have even been spotted in use at mass auditions for America’s Got Talent, and on the top of Chicago’s Marina City Towers during a memorable high-wire walk.




Whether your message is intended to get people organized, pump up their enthusiasm, or move them to safety, AmpliVox grab-and-go megaphones will extend your voice to large groups with ease and efficiency.
