Knowing what your venue needs a PA system for is the key to choosing the right one

There are a couple of different PA solutions for venues - if you mainly have speech and background music you will probably need a 100 volt line system, with small discreet speakers on the walls or in the ceiling and a centrally-located amplifier to power them. Hotels can benefit from a Matrix system, where each function room has its own music source input, microphone input and volume controls on the wall. Take a look at our Hotels Announcement and Background Music System. Or give us a call and we can put together a bespoke announcement and music system for your venue.

If you have Live music and want to provide a PA system for that then you will be better off with passive PA speakers and a power amplifier. You first need to decide on the range of uses that the PA system will be put to - from comedians, singers and small combos through to larger, loud bands and speciality acts.

The final consideration is whether you should have just an onstage mixer or should you provide a snake so that the mixer can be positioned at the back of the room. Take a look at our Bands packages or call and we can put together a bespoke recommendation for your venue.

You should consider having at least one wireless microphone.
