Associated Sound’s rental department saw the benefit of Listen transmitters and stationary receivers as far back as 2000.Our rental department started using the LT-800 Stationary Transmitters at the USA Olympic Track & Field Trials to get sound from the main track to the adjacent practice track.
To run wire we would have had to use over 200 ft. of yellow jackets “cable covers” in the pedestrian areas; it simply wasn’t practical and wireless was much easier. The total throw from the main PA location to the remote locations was about 600’ as the crow flies. It worked great and we knew these would become invaluable in our rental inventory as you simply don’t know what you have to work with until you are “on site”.
This year Associated Sound’s rental team Josh Bender, Ross James and Will Updegraph did the Concorso Italiano at Laguna Seca Golf Course. Each year, Concorso Italiano attracts over 40,000 automotive enthusiasts to celebrate their passion for vintage, classic and exotic automobiles and their iconic designers.The show covered over two fairways and is the largest show dedicated to Italian cars in the world. This year’s event had around 1,000 cars on display.Event organizers aim to create a festive Italian atmoshpere and audio is certainly a part of the atmosphere. By using the Listen wireless audio products we eliminated hundreds of feet of cable and covers and provided a better result for our clients.

The Shriners Hospital Concours in Sacramento moved to a new location on the Capitol Mall in Sacramento and once again Associated Sound was called upon to deliver great sound.We needed to get sound from 5th Street to 10th Street and we had two light rail crossings to deal with. Wireless was the only solution and we had positive experience with the Listen LT-800 Stationary Transmitters which worked flawlessly sending signal to remote amplifier locations. A secondary benefit of using the Listen product is that we are able to bring our clients into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) at the same time.
