  • Protects up to 30 acres (12 hectares)
  • All-in-One Unit with 20-Speaker Tower
  • Ideal for large crops and airfields
  • Sound chips easily replaced in the field
  • Solar panel included

The BirdGard Super Pro Amp is our most powerful system. It includes two high-output amplifiers driving our specially designed 20-speaker tower. The intense, sound output effectively covers up to 30 acres (12 hectares).

The solid-state electronics are mounted inside a NEMA-rated control box that is suitable for most any weather condition. The Bird Gard Super Pro Amp is fully programmable, with adjustments for volume, specific sound combinations, daylight, night, or 24-hour operation. Every six seconds a randomly selected sound is broadcast at a randomly selected frequency out of a randomly selected speaker. It sounds like there are many different birds in distress spread throughout the protected area. Also included are four different random features that vary the sound, the sound duration, length of time between sounds and the sound location so birds don't get accustomed to the sound pattern.

The sound chip is located on the faceplate so it can be easily changed in the field for protection against a greater variety of birds. Please click here for help in identifying the birds causing you problems. The controller electronically modulates calls so it sounds like different injured birds of the same species. The control unit, speaker tower and included solar panel are a single, stand-alone unit. The built-in high power amplifiers broadcast crystal-clear digital sound output through (20) weather-resistant speakers enclosed in a metal case. The Bird Gard Super Pro Amp effectively covers an area approximately 1,200 x 1,200 feet (366 x 366 meters).

The 20-Speaker Tower is designed to mount onto a 1 in. (outside diameter) pipe. 1 inch electrical conduit works well as it is light, rigid, inexpensive and available in 10 ft. lengths making it ideal for low crops, vineyards and bushes. For orchards and taller applications, 3/4 inch galvanized water pipe (1 inch outside diameter) supported by a t-post or trellis pole works well.

Note: This unit is capable of sound output up to 125 decibels, hearing protection is recommended.

Maintenance

An occasional spray with electrical contact cleaner over the connection points and switches will ensure years of trouble-free use. Storage In the off-season the system should be stored in an insect proof container (e.g. a taped up box) to ensure that insects, ants or wasps don't build nests inside the control box or speakers as this may render the system inoperable.
