WHY DO YOU NEED A SMART SOUND CART?

There are a lot of benefits of sound cart that will make your life on the set easier and more comfortable for work.

Also putting your sound equipment in audio box ensures longer life of device exploitation due to fixed connections with patch field (no need for daily plugging-unplugging routine!) and protection from the sun, wind, dust and rain.
 
SPEED OF SETUP up for shooting is another major advantage.

You can start recording sound in a matter of minutes due to fact that your gear is already interconnected and safely stored in the Audio Box customized for your recorder and mixer/remote surface. All you need to do is to put your Audio Box on Smart Sound Cart and power it up and you are ready to go!

LIGHTWEIGHT and MODULARITY of our audio carts is another strong point.

SIZE and WEIGHT of Smart Sound Cart does matter! Weight of Sound Smart Cart is only 14kg!

We built Smart Sound Cart so it can fit real train wagon doors, elevators and it is foldable so it can be packed to fit in the trunk of your car.

IMPORTANT FEATURES TO CONSIDER WHEN SHOPPING FOR A SOUND CART

We all know how painful can be carrying massive trolley with all gear mounted on it. Here are the most important things to consider before you decide to buy a sound cart:


FLEXIBILITY - easy detach Audio Box from Smart Sound Cart

Smart Sound Cart provides MODULAR, two-piece set that allows you to detach Audio Box from Smart Sound Cart and carry it, with more comfort and half the weight. This is particularly important when there is no elevator and one has to carry the gear several floors by hand. Audio Box has two Protex handles so you can have a good grip while you carry your Audio Box.



MOBILITY - Smart Sound Cart is ideal for safe moving over rough surfaces

Sound Smart Cart is built from plasticized aluminum profiles and stainless steel components with two optional sizes of front wheels: Small Ø 100mm wheels or big Ø 200mm wheels with pneumatic tires. Standard size for rear wheels is Ø 260mm. 100 mm front wheels provide more space in front to put bigger 19” drawer (Adam Hall recommended). 200 mm wheels provide better mobility on rough terrains and easier and faster moving on the set and more absorption of vibrations that can be carried onto equipment on the location sound cart.



DURABILITY - lightweight, rust-free and stylish support for your audio equipment

Our audio carts are built from Aluminum profiles which are welded so the frame is firm during moving around the set and rough terrains. Aluminum is chosen due to its lightweight and rust-free characteristics. Furthermore, rugged construction frame is plastic coated, so there are no rough edges and color marks from Aluminum which gives Smart Sound Cart a stylish look.



PROTECTION - keeps you safe in different weather conditions
