Amigos came to us with a request to help advise and supply a sound system for their guest lodge in Uganda. We chose equipment that would be simple to use and maintain. It had to give good background sound around the lodge and take the rigours of the climate.

We choose a 100v system so they could have local control of the volume in different areas. Using 100V meant that we could use lots of small speakers which are hard to spot on the wooden beams and don't detract from the building. The speakers can be used outside as well and they plan to build mud towers like termite mounds to house them to make an amphitheatre, can't wait to see this.

We were also able to provide a wireless microphone which can be use anywhere around the Lodge, this proves useful so the children don't have to shout to the group when talking about their experiences.

It was good to see the photos and to hear how it enhanced the lodge.
