For Don Roth, CEO of Northbrook-based AmpliVox, it is always a treat to see his company’s products pop up in unexpected places. A few months ago, his phone started ringing when friends saw an AmpliVox megaphone being used to guide daredevil Nick Wallenda on his blindfolded tightrope walk between Chicago’s Marina Towers. Then on July 22, a similar megaphone was spotted on the NBC-TV’s “America’s Got Talent.” In a short clip, a product staff member uses the AmpliVox Mity-Meg to deliver instructions to hundreds of contestants as they wait to audition. That same week, a similar megaphone was pictured in a local paper being used at a community sidewalk sale.
“Our megaphones are extremely versatile, so it’s not really a surprise to see them used in so many ways,” notes Roth. “They’re lightweight, powerful, and run for hours on rechargeable batteries. It’s no wonder that they’re so popular.”
In addition to its megaphone products, AmpliVox manufactures a wide variety of portable sound systems, presentation lecterns, and multimedia furniture options. For more information about AmpliVox and its products, visit www.ampli.com.
