If you're choosing a PA system for a hall you'll need one that's versatile

The type of PA system you need for your hall depends upon the size of the hall and the audience, and the type of things you need it for. You might regularly have meetings, quiz nights, services of worship, Amateur Dramatic productions, single acts (e.g. singers or entertainers) or larger, loud bands.

The number of watts that you will need depends on a number of factors including your style of music, the size of the hall and the number of people in the hall (bodies absorb sound!).

Additionally, you should not have your PA turned up to its full capacity because any peaks in the music may cause distortion. As a general rule we would allow the following as a start point but we're happy to advise - click right to complete our simple enquiry form.

Type of use Watts per audience member
Meetings 0.5 to 1
Acoustic Acts 2 to 3
Duos 2 to 3
Medium bands 3 to 4
Large Bands 5
