Museum Tools originated the concept of focused sound 20 years ago with their Secret Sound® parabolic speaker line. Since then, many companies have produced similar products, but we believe no one has equaled our quality, design or service. All reflected speakers work on the same principle, are affected by the quality of the recording and the noise levels in the room, and will succeed or fail depending on the balance of these two factors. That said, however, we believe that the Secret Sound® speaker’s track record and customer satisfaction speaks for itself.

Museum Tools is now an MSE Audio company, along with Induction Dynamics, Phase Technology, Rockustics, SolidDrive, and SoundTube. Museum Tools products can be purchased through MSE Audio’s global network of commercial dealers.

Secret Sound® SS30 Speakers

Secret Sound® is a museum-quality parabolic speaker which projects a focused beam of sound onto any exhibit without distracting audio spillover. It was designed by museum professionals to be easily installed, ceiling mounted at any height, and maintenance free, and has been in use by major institutions around the world since 1986.

The speaker housing combines reduced size and elegant design with high-tech materials and performance. Only slightly larger than a baseball, the molded-composite housing provides a strong, clean sound ideally suited for all audio presentations. The composite construction combines strength and durability with improved damping. Secret Sound® is available with a choice of three parabolas: clear, black or white. All units are in stock and can be shipped within 24 hours of our receipt of your order.

MacFi-MP

+ Large Product Image

Installation Guide

The MacFi-MP is a MP3 digital audio record / play system.The MacFi-mp incorporates a MPEG processor for record and playback quality of up to 15kHz bandwidth. With its increased capacity, the MacFi-mp is able to store up to 99 individual messages. Mackenzie’s Dynamic Message Length (DML) technology allows each of the 99 messages to be of different duration. DML also provides for replacement messages to be a different length than the original, maximizing memory efficiency and compatibility with future applications.

The MacFi-mp utilizes solid state, non-volatile, FLASH memory which stores messages until they are re-written. Message data is protected from power outages and no battery is required. The system contains no moving parts and offers unsurpassed reliability.

 

Smart Amp

+ Large Product Image

Installation Guide

The Smart Amp is an automatic volume control unit.The Smart Amp acts as an unseen staff member, automatically adjusting the volume of any player as the surrounding room noise goes up and down. Volume of your Secret Sound speaker will stay consistent even as a brass band goes by! The Smart Amp “listens” to the room through a small remote microphone, and adjusts the player volume as needed to retain your setting. The Smart Amp also includes an internal 6-watt amplifier that is sufficient to power a Secret Sound speaker, making it the perfect system for unamplified computer audio output. Installation is easy, and you need only to provide speaker wire to connect the Smart Amp to your sound source and the remote microphone.

Microwave Sensor

+ Large Product Image

The Microwave Sensor (Model MS-2) from Mackenzie Laboratories, Inc. is the ideal solution for automatically triggering message playback via contact closure. The Microwave Sensor uses radar technology to detect the disturbance of, or mass movement in its field of operation. Detection produces a contact closure. This technology is resistant to false detentions caused environmental conditions. Its small size allows the Microwave Sensor to be mounted almost anywhere. In addition, microwave technology does not require line of sight like most infrared units. This allows the Microwave Sensor be hidden behind plastic, wood, fiberglass, cloth, glass, etc and not effect the aesthetics of your installation.

The minimal power required for the Microwave Sensor allows it to share the 12VDC supply of another device in most applications.

The Microwave Sensor is able to share power and provide a single contact closure to the following Mackenzie models (As well as any other systems offering a 12VDC supply and contact input):DV-1000MT/MTS, DMR-Px/PxS, MacFi, MacFi-e.
