Every event needs a great mix of professional quality lights, video systems and audio systems. Imagine an event or show you have seen where the lights were flashing, visuals were captivating, but the sound was poor. The entire experience ends up being average. The same experience is something you want to avoid at your next meeting, tradeshow, conference, or presentation.
In many cases, the audio system is the last item to receive proper consideration which results in an event that lacks large, clear, and intelligible audio. There are a variety of options available when choosing the audio system for your next event.
Here are a few key factors to consider:
- What is the size of your venue, the square footage and the height of the ceiling in a given space?
- Is the event indoor or in an outdoor space?
- How many people will be in attendance?
- What type of event or presentation are you planning?
- Will a presenter be speaking live and will the audience be small, medium or large?
- Will there be a music component to the program?
Now that we have asked all of the right questions, we can help you choose a system that will deliver quality results. A small audience of 50- 150 people or a small venue may only require a small amount of sound reinforcement. Below is an example of a professional quality self-powered system. This can be placed on a speaker stand for maximum coverage.
For a medium audience of 300-500 people or a medium-sized venue, a small flown line array system may be the best option. A flown system gives you more sound options and better quality output. A larger event may require more speakers, microphones, balancers, and other sound equipment. For example, if you need a system that that can be installed near the ceiling so there are no obstructions in sightlines, we recommend the one below.
For a large audience of 700-1000 people for AGMs and general sessions, the flown line array system is still the best option. These systems are modular and can be designed using the latest technology to deliver predictable results. Great quality sound is the only outcome. Below is an example of the L’acoustics professional audio system and its prediction software.
