Fallen Marines and Sailor Honored with Help from AmpliVox Sound Systems

US Marines, Naval Officers, veterans and community members gathered on July 25 at Fort Sheridan, Illinois for a somber and dignified ceremony in memory of armed forces members killed by a gunman in Chattanooga, Tennessee. They were joined by 10th District Congressman Bob Dold, who came to honor the four marines and one sailor who died at the Chattanooga Navy Reserve Center on July 16, 2015. The outdoor service was enhanced by the use of a portable PA from AmpliVox Sound Systems, based in nearby Northbrook, Illinois.

The system used at the ceremony, AmpliVox’s SW915 Digital Audio Travel Partner, is a convenient and versatile all-in-one system for indoor or outdoor use.  The 250-watt amplifier clearly projects voices for audiences up to 7,500 people, and its built-in Bluetooth™ module enables music streaming directly from smartphones or other devices. The portable unit runs for up to 10 hours on its rechargeable batteries, allowing for easy set-up in outdoor venues.

“AmpliVox is honored to have been part of this important remembrance ceremony at Fort Sheridan,” noted Don Roth, AmpliVox CEO. “Our products are frequently used in houses of worship and similar settings where reliability and clarity of sound are of utmost importance. We’re indebted to all members of the armed services for the many sacrifices they make, and proud to play any part we can in sharing these messages of support.”
