Designed for teenagers
Is your schoolyard great for toddlers, preschoolers and gradeschoolers, but does it lack challenge for the
middle schoolers? Are you looking for solutions to keep the fourteen-year-olds entertained in your
destination park? Do you struggle to include the younger generation in your public spaces? Or is your
high school looking for something creative to do for teenagers? Our interactive DJ booth Fono might just
be the out-of-the-box idea that you’ve been looking for.
Creating an appealing meeting place for teenagers and young adults can be quite an ordeal. There
simply isn’t that much to choose from. Not everybody wants to be on a skate ramp, play table tennis or
be the next ninja warrior. And there can only be so many basketball fields.
Naturally, all those activities are a lot of fun, but sometimes we just want something else. Something
truly unique. Something that also appeals to the creative ones among us and not just the athletic crowd.
Music is what ties teenagers together. They all like to share and talk about music. Or simply listen to it,
hang out and have a good time.
The Fono is designed to create a cool creative hangout for teenagers. To give teenagers the feeling of
being a real outdoor DJ. Constructed of a concrete with a stainless steel DJ interface and impact resistant controls, it is meant to be in uncontrolled outdoor environments. Not for large events, but as a place to meet friends.
The Fono is equipped with pre-installed beats, so users can instantly play. But the real fun comes when using ones one music. When placing your smartphone on one of the two hotspots, the music gets amplified instantly. It allows you to perform DJ effects with your own music, like for example filter, scratch and delay. You can mix two songs together, record loops, cut them, there’s a crossfader; it truly gives you the feeling of being a real DJ outside.
The Fono is perfect for high schools, destination parks, museums, retail areas or to complement your
skate-, bmx or sport park. Do you want to know more? Please let us know!
Although advanced technologies are embedded in the interactive equipment, all are easy and intuitive to understand. Professional DJs have helped developing the Yalp Fono DJ Booth. The Yalp Fono is understandable and accessible to all, though it also offers cool features and effects for the more advanced users.
How it works
Two rotating DJ discs allows the users to precisely control the effects. In the Fono DJ desk, familiar effects are integrated such as scratching, cross-threads or a pitch filter, which alternately filters out high and low tones. There is the possibility to record music and create your own loops, e.g. repetitive sound sequences. For user that forgot to bring their smartphone, 100 sounds are pre-installed.
The Yalp Fono DJ Booth is very easy to use, and it is always fun to play. The Fono DJ Booth can be played with its own music, which is wirelessly transferred via the smartphone without Bluetooth, cable or login. The Yalp Fono is particularly popular amongst young people. It offers a meeting place for friends and a meaningful combination of music and dance.
If you have any questions about the different games and the possibilities, please contact us, we will be glad to help you.
The Yalp Fono DJ Booth, like our other interactive play equipment, has been designed to be suitable for outdoor use. It is extremely robust and vandalism-resistant. For a stable anchoring of the Fono DJ Booth a concrete floor is recommended, to be mounted to the floor with chemical anchors. In order to guarantee a stable positioning on other surfaces, we recommend creating a solid foundation. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information. Compacted concrete and stainless steel guarantee weather resistance and protect the Yalp Fono against vandalism. The Yalp Fono DJ Booth is designed for permanent installation.
All electronics are IP65 waterproof. The power supply is double insulated and needs only a mains voltage of 230V / 2,5A.
The speakers of the Yalp Fono are directed towards the inside, the noise is attenuated and reduced to an average of 60dB. This corresponds approximately to the volume of an ordinary conversation (60dB) or a TV (71dB). The concrete sides of the DJ Booth prevents noise disturbance as it bounces the sound directly to the DJ, or the people in the immediate vicinity.
In order to prevent possible noise disturbances, we recommend installing a Yalp Fono DJ Booth at a distance of approx. 50m to the nearest residence. Of course the volume can be adjusted to a maximum if required. During use, the volume can be adapted to the particular music style or the desired sound, and a headphone connection is also available.
As with all of our interactive outdoor and indoor games, the Yalp Fono DJ Booth is extensively tested and exposed to the most severe conditions and influences. This includes tests with fireworks, mud, snow, ice, gum and all kinds of liquids. All test results are available and can be viewed on request.
Many of our Yalp Fono DJ Booths are set up in areas known for vandalism, over several years not one product has suffered damage causing the product to malfunction. They all still provide the people in these areas a lot of fun, we are particularly proud of that. Would you like to see our robust Fono DJ Booth with our own eyes and experience its resistance against vandalism? Then contact us or book a showroom visit.
The interactive DJ Booth can be installed at any location, it is delivered in one to make installation quick and easy.
The Yalp Fono DJ Booth has a variety of settings, which can be adjusted directly during the installation or, if required, can be adjusted later on site. The on and off times can be set with the internal clock. The maximum volume can be determined to prevent any noise nuisance for the near residential area. We do recommend a minimum distance of 50m to the nearest resident.
During use, the volume can be adapted to the particular music style or the desired sound, and a headphone connection is also available.
Our competence center is keen to ensure proper functioning of the product. You are able to contact our competence center at all time by calling us directly, email us, leave a message at our website. Our support team exists of experts and is hands-on and to help you with the most desirable solution.

The Yalp Fono DJ Booth for outdoor use has been designed to be most energy efficient. During active use, the Fono DJ booth consumes a maximum 11 Watt, this is comparable with a ordinary light bulb. If the Fono DJ Booth is in the energy saving mode and not used, the consumption is 4 Watt. In sleep mode, energy consumption is 1 Watt. The Fono DJ Booth is unbeatable in its energy efficiency.
Solar power option
For sunny climates, Yalp Fono is also available as a solar power version, with solar panels on the roof and an advanced battery system to create its own green energy.
For other climates, main power is the best option to make sure the Yalp Fono DJ Booth is always powered and ready to roll.
