Sound

Sound equipment for an event is especially important when guest speakers will be delivering talks to event guests, announcements must be heard over the din of a large crowd, or the event is highlighted by a live band or DJ.

While bands and DJs often bring with them the necessary equipment to ply their trade, very large rooms, outdoor events and events with a variety of activity occurring simultaneously within a number of separate areas often requires the introduction of additional audio speakers dispersed throughout event areas.

Guest speakers will require the help of a sound system to be heard among a large audience, and with the advent of




headphone microphones and wireless connections, such devices save countless dollars and time in setting-up. Still, the sound system cannot deliver audio information or music without the key elements of wiring, electricity, soundboards or CD players to provide the instruments of producing sound, or regulating their tone or volume.

The common complaints registered by guests at events are either the insufficiency of adequate sound volume, or the imposing excess of such. A professional sound technician or an enthusiastic audiophile found within company ranks or on membership rosters can prove an asset for regulating sound delivered to the comfort of most event guests. Sound is especially important for classroom and lecture portions of an event, with the assurance that feedback squeals and irritating static or sound shorts occur with diminished frequency, or not at all.

Bands and DJs also require adequate sound equipment to deliver soothing music, danceable beats and entertaining patter to keep audiences engaged, announce selections, or solicit requests. Not only do the rooms within which these entertainers perform need to be acoustically designed to dampen hollow echoing; additional speakers at strategic locations perform to diminish this effect. Monitors are necessary for guest speakers as well, giving performers the ability to hear their own delivery, thereby adjusting their vocalizations for clarity.

Information desks and established security stations provide maximal performance when outfitted with microphones and connection into the sound system to announce lost items or persons, event schedules, or to command attention of event personnel to specific stations. The sound system is the voice of the event, offering encouragement, building excitement, or bringing attention to matters at hand, necessities for event coordination and visiting guests’ enjoyment.
