The Coronavirus pandemic has elevated the need for urgent communications, including audible public announcements.

AmpliVox Sound Systems, a returning competitor in the 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, offers a complete line of high-quality, megaphones, horn-style hailers, and portable PA systems that can reach audiences from 10 to 7,500, indoors or out, or dispersed people currently separated by “social distancing”.
