Announcing New Coach Sound System, With Seat-Back Controllers

June 18, 2010 By Gus in Miami: Travel NewsMiami: Things to Do  | 7 Comments


Digital audio provides superb clarity for the hard of hearing.

For the past 2 years, we have been working hard to improve Miami Tour Company, our attempt to bring a world class sightseeing tour to the area. Today, we have installed an entirely new Coach Sound system on the tour buses. And, for the next 24 hours, we are inviting everyone to come experience The Original Miami Sightseeing Tour—entirely for free!

The benefits of our new sound system

  • Superb clarity for the hard of hearing
  • Tours offered in English, Spanish, German, French, and Italian
  • High quality digital audio - no engine noise, or static
  • More entertaining compared to the competition
  • Increased safety by allowing the driver to concentrate on driving

How the system works

Our new sound system consists of a central unit to which the GPS antennae and drivers control panel are connected. The multilingual tour commentary and music are then converted to a high quality digital audio signal. The signal is then transmitted to overhead speakers and seat-back passenger controls.

Adjusting the controls is so easy, even a kid can do it.


With the push of a button, the new seat-back controllers allow passengers to easily switch between the language channels and adjust the volume.

In addition to the professional narration, we play a lot of music during the tour, and the digital sound quality is far superior compared to our previous sound system. With our new system, I can hear harmonies and instruments that I have never heard before!

Here is, Frank Galletti, installing the seat-back controllers.


Before upgrading the audio, Frank mounted a big-screen TV inside the bus.

Amazing! Great job, very innovative. It’s like the interior of the bus has been pimped by West Coast Customs!
