When planning an event or concert, one of the most difficult things can be choosing the right PA system to use and setting it up. Of course, you can borrow one from a friend, but there still comes the issue of transporting it to the venue, setting it up, and plugging it in. PA rental companies make your life easier, as they often will deliver the sound system to the venue and set it up, at a fee of course. But if you host events frequently, this is not very cost effective.
Considering Venue and Audience Size
To choose the correct PA system to use at your event, you must consider the size and type of the venue and how many people will be there. Small indoor venues require a smaller, less powerful sound system than would an outdoor venue, where there is nothing to reflect the sound.
Also, a large crowd tends to “soak up” the sound, so a PA that can put out more volume will be needed in more crowded situations.
It’s also important to consider what purpose the PA system will be used for. If it’s just going to be used for speaking or acoustic guitar, you can get away with a smaller system since these don’t require a lot of power or generate a lot of bass frequencies. If you’re going to accommodate a full rock band or DJ, you will need a larger system.
Common Venues and PA Examples
If it’s a small get together in your backyard with a singer/songwriter performing, a system like the Carvin Audio XP800L-PM10, which consists of a powered mixer with two PM10 speakers, will do the trick. For a larger event like an outdoor festival or county fair performance with a full band, you can’t go wrong with a Carvin Audio TRC System. If you need a compact, versatile speaker solution for any size event that falls in between, Carvin Audio’s S600B-2 battery powered portable sound system is the perfect fit.
Carvin S600B-2: A Versatile Solution
The S600B-2 is an all-in-one, portable column array system design that offers amazing sound quality for your event. It is powered by an internal rechargeable battery, so it can go anywhere you can go. With 400 watts of stereo power, it can easily cover most small and mid-sized events. It also comes equipped with many of the features that the larger PA systems have while offering significantly less weight, such as six channels, eleven inputs, and compatibility with wireless systems. Usually when you choose a portable sound system, it comes at the cost of power and volume, as portable sound systems tend to be suitable for only the smallest events. However, with the S600B-2 you don’t have to compromise!
Whether it’s a beach gathering, backyard punk rock show, or wedding reception, the S600B-2 will take the stress out of choosing the right PA system.
