Louisiana Patent of the Month – September 2022

High-quality sound bars are an essential part of making off-roading and marine experiences enjoyable. They need to be able to withstand bumpy terrain or choppy waters, as well as mud, dust, and rain. Many sound bars on the market are not able to withstand these conditions and users are typically unable to adjust the direction of sound output. It can also be difficult to modify the volume and sound sources in low-light conditions. 

Southern Audio Services, Inc. strives to provide customers with unique speaker systems that are easy to mount and have exceptional sound quality, even in open spaces. As outdoor recreational activities become increasingly popular, it is important for sound bars to compete against external noise sources, while still providing quality sound. 

Southern Audio Services, Inc. has developed a sound bar constructed to resist mechanical impact, including jolting and shaking which is common in off-road vehicles or ski boats. Its electrical components are sealed and protected from dust and water. The mount enables users to adjust the speaker 360° to the desired position and directionality of sound. It overcomes extraneous noise to provide quality audio, and includes a lighting assembly for easy volume adjustments even in low-light, dusty or muddy conditions. It is also bluetooth compatible for effective wireless control of the speaker. Its study structure and strategically-positioned bass speaker units produce incredible sound for any roadtrip or outdoor recreational experience.
