What does the name "Amplivox" Mean?

So what does the name Amplivox mean?

According to the Online Etymology Dictionary¹,
  • Amplify comes originally from Middle French and means: "to enlarge or expand" and originally was not restricted to the use of sound as it now is (due to radio technology)
  • Vox comes from Classic Latin and means: "voice"
Therefore, Ampli-Vox literally means "to enlarge or expand voice."

You are probably one step ahead of us... Amplivox's slogan is "Extend Your Voice" for this very reason. The excellent sound quality our lecterns and sound systems provide allow you to extend your voice so that your message can be heard loud and clear.
