Unlike conventional speaker technology that suffers from very limited range and distortion, the Magnetic Audio Device's Mach-2 offers a radical advancement in acoustic technology using "planar magnetic transducers" of special construction that project extremely clear and directional sound hundreds of yards. Instead of "adding to the noise" you can now penetrate through the clamor of outdoor events/emergencies and deliver authoritative voice commands and warning tones that have to be heard to believe. Extremely broad frequency response from 150hz to 20Khz means that even those with very deep or very high pitched voices will be understood equally well. Applications include high risk warrant service, hostage negotiations, field-force/riot operations, search/rescue, evacuations, border and perimeter security, boat interdiction, inmate/fugitive recovery and whenever clear communications are needed. Audio inputs include wireless headset, MP3 player and virtually any form of available audio source. Mounting options include portable tripod, vehicle hitch-mount, vehicle roof mount and remotely operated pan/tilt solutions with optional searchlight, video camera and green laser designator. The Mach-2 weighs 26 pounds, is 12.9- by 10.4- by 11.8-inches and fully waterproof.
