Which Sound System Is Best For Your Party?

When planning an event or a party you want everything to be perfect. One vital elements is the music and the quality of sound it brings to your guests. With the wide range of sound systems you can choose from, you will need to know which one is the best fit for you.  Professional sound services companies can provide you with sound systems of a much higher quality than you’d usually get from your local electronics store, and you can choose from several brands, depending on your type of event available for you to hire.

1. Home Use

For parties or social gatherings that will be taking place at home, it can be difficult to know what size or quality sound system to use. For smaller gatherings, you wouldn’t want a large sound system as you aren’t in a large space where a huge sound will need to be distributed and if you go for a system that’s too powerful, you’re likely to turn off your guests, as they won’t be able to hear themselves speak. It is recommended that a Bluetooth sound system is used as it is easy to connect to a mobile device wirelessly, enabling you to move around the room with your device. 
A Bluetooth sound bar is a good system because they distribute good quality music and can fit into your home setting nicely, avoiding taking up too much room and messing around with different settings. A recommended brand for the sound bar would be ‘Pioneer’ who offer 160 Watts output. The other pro of this brand’s offering is that there are speakers built in so there is no need to hook anything up to the system.
2. Venue Use

For bigger venues holding a lot more guests, you will need better quality and larger speakers. It may be a good idea to hire out a DJ sound system as this has all the functions and accessories you will need for a larger space. A DJ mixer is ideal as you can mix different tracks from cd’s and wirelessly from any devices. They’re fairly easy to get to grips with, but it may be worth considering a professional DJ to work it for you.  To connect to this for sound, you can hire amplifiers which will make the sound more powerful across a large area. If you want your music to fill the entire venue you will need to consider questions such as how high the ceilings are and how long or wide the room is.
The bigger and taller the room, the more powerful your sound system will need to be. The Funktion one packages are probably the best to use for larger venues – they consist of 2 BR118 subs and 2 F1201s along with an FFA DSP amplifier. 
This is said to be the most popular system for bigger events and functions for up to 200 people.
3. Large Events

When it comes to large events such as concerts, festivals or any other events with up to 500 people attending, you will need extremely powerful sound systems to enable a clear sound that reaches all your guests. The best equipment to use is something called a sound reinforcement system. Included in this is microphones, signal processors, amplifiers and loudspeakers. This system makes sound louder and distributes the sound through a much more larger distance enforcing much higher quality music. When holding a club event, you will need to think more about the bass which is where an amplifier is important. One of the preferred sound systems for clubs and related events is the Powersoft K20 which delivers 18,000 Watts.
It can be stressful and expensive to find the correct sound system for your event, especially when there are so many available. Having the correct equipment can really turn your night in to a success and help you to gain positive feedback about the quality of your event. Hiring equipment is not only beneficial to your night, but cheaper than buying efficient sound systems yourself which may only ever come to use for special occasions. Take professional advice on the best equipment for your specific event, and you’re sure to get the right system for your celebration, whatever it may be.
