Get the message out - Strong, Loud and Clear with LRAD 100X™

LRAD 100X™

The LRAD 100X™ is a self-contained, hand-held portable loudhailer that can easily be heard over the background noise of vehicles, vessels, sirens and boisterous crowds to ensure the messages and commands are heard and clearly understood.


The LRAD 100X™ is 20-30 decibels (dB) louder than most megaphones. Optimized driver and wave-guide design ensures clear and loud voice communication so every syllable is understood. The warning tone provides a non-lethal deterrent which shapes behaviour and enables the operator to determine intent while preserving time for force escalation.


This extraordinary acoustic performance comes in a rugged package that can be operated in all weather conditions. Interfaces include a standard microphone as well as a rugged media player designed for easy operation in demanding environments.

The Streamer Module connects to a TCP/IP network with DHCP or fixed IP address and the included software allows pre-recorded file playback, live mic playback, volume control and operation of high frequency alter tone from a networked Windows XP, Vista or Windows 3 PC system. The LRAD® Streamer software works with any microphone connected to the PC’s standard microphone input and replaces the existing LRAD® MP3 Control Module. One LRAD® Streamer per LRAD® system is required to stream to multiple devices at once.
