A sound reinforcement system is the name given to everything that goes into bringing the sound of an event to its live audience. This includes microphones, amplifiers, loudspeakers, equalizers, compressors, noise gates, feedback suppressors, and more. It doesn’t occur to most people when they’re enjoying a baseball game or a concert, but the way they hear sound has to be precisely built with the audience’s experience and comfort in mind.
Think of an open mic or guitarist at a coffee shop. You typically have one microphone and a loudspeaker. That’s suitable – though not perfect – for that kind of location. The sound just has to get to the 10 or 20 people who are there.
Now think of an event that draws hundreds or thousands. It becomes much more complex to get the same sound to all of them at the same time. If things are off, those in the middle between two main loudspeakers may hear the same music staggered – one set of loudspeakers playing it a half second before the other. This ruins the experience for them.
If your sound system isn’t set up to carry a full range of sound, the music coming out will sound tinny and you’ll have customers demanding their money back. Mixing boards need to offer complete control to an audio engineer.
Are you set up to minimize feedback? Is your sound reinforcement system complete enough to be heard over the noise of a large crowd?
Your concern isn’t only quality either, but safety. The equipment also needs to be set up in ways that don’t risk your crowd. That’s why our sound technicians go through both manufacturing and union training. This guarantees your safety, their safety, and your crowd’s safety, while also making them skilled in setting up the perfect sound reinforcement system for any event.
