MILFORD - Altec Lansing Technologies, Inc. of Milford has delivered the sound for the Pocono Environmental Education Center in Lehman Township. Altec Lansing donated a sound system for the non-profit’s new Visitor Activity Center. The new system features Altec's Model 408 Duplex® High Fidelity Ceiling Speakers. The system was delivered and installed by Gelnett and Associates of Northumberland on April 18 and 19, just in time for the Earth Day grand opening ceremony of the new building and group lodges. Dave Merrey, the President of Altec Lansing Professional Division in Oklahoma City commented on the sound system forPocono Environmental Education Center's new Visitor Activity Center, “The dining hall has hard, reflective surfaces and therefore represents somewhat of an acoustical challenge. Typically, sound systems in this type of room are unable to prevent, ‘smearing’ of the sound due to ‘echoes’ off of these surfaces. The smooth, even and controlled frequency response of the Altec Lansing model 408 speakers assures that the listening experience throughout the space is consistent and pure; in keeping with the environmentally friendly theme of the Center” The new system will be utilized for special events, conferences, campus announcements, lectures and other special occasions held in the new building. Pocono Environmental Education Center Executive Director/CEO Jim Rienhardt stated, “We appreciates the donation from one of Pike County's largest employers. It is noteworthy to point out that Altec Lansing, through the leadership of CEO Bob Garthwaite, is so very community minded and we thank them for being a PEEC partner.” For more information on Altec Lansing Technologies, visit and for more information about the Pocono Environmental Education Center, call (570) 828-2319 or visit PEEC on the web at
