AmpliVox Introduces its First Waterproof “Made in USA” Megaphone

For powerful sound coverage that stands up to water, dust, heat, and cold, AmpliVox Sound Systems proudly introduces the new Made in the USA Pro Marine Megaphone, model WP609R. This unique megaphone, the only product of its kind made in America, can go anywhere on land or water with its rechargeable battery pack and state-of-the-art design that makes it completely waterproof and dustproof. Its rugged, military-tough construction provides reliable communication for industrial, fire and rescue, law enforcement, public safety, military, boating, water sports, and outdoor recreation settings, as well as any disaster or emergency situations.

The Pro Marine Megaphone is constructed of high-impact polycarbonate material, engineered to meet IP67 (Ingress Protection Standard) for dust and water submersion. The unit is so watertight that it will float if dropped in the water, but can still operate perfectly even when submerged for up to 30 minutes (as shown in AmpliVox’s demonstration video). To protect against cracks and damage, the Pro Marine Megaphone includes shock-absorbing rubber cushions on the front edge and back as well as wrap-around handles. It is drop-tested to exceed MIL STD 810F 516.5 specifications for shock. It is the first and only American-made megaphone to meet these heightened standards.

In addition to its outstanding durability, the Pro Marine Megaphone provides the high-quality sound features that are the hallmark of AmpliVox megaphone products. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to eight hours of use, and an integrated charge indicator light lets users know when the battery is running low. It delivers clear and powerful sound from its Class D Digital Amplifier, with built-in horn and siren functions. The lightweight unit carries easily with its padded shoulder strap.

“The extreme durability of the Pro Marine makes it one of the most versatile megaphones available,” notes Don Roth, AmpliVox CEO. “It can go anywhere and be used under the most extreme conditions. We’re proud to produce this ultra-reliable megaphone here in the United States, and we’re confident that it will be an indispensable tool for first responders, athletic and aquatic facilities, and many other customers that require rugged, dependable sound equipment.”
