This page aims to help you decide on what system you need for your event. The more information you can give us on your quote request will lead to a more accurate quote, and less mistakes at gig time as everyone is prepared.
To keep things simple, most of the examples on this page relate to a band situation. The same principle follows for other types of performances.
Front of House (Main PA System)
The Front of House (FoH) PA System is what the audience will hear. You will need to order an adequate system to cover the entire audience at the correct level. All gigs and venues are different, but the list below should give you a better idea of which PA System you require.
Small PA Systems – up to 800 Watt
With a small speaker cab on each side of the stage, our small PA systems deliver crisp audio all night long.
Perfect for vocals or light music. We also see this system going out to parties, pub quizes, conferences etc.
We run many full gigs with these cabs. With a small mixing desk it is possible to mix a light band (e.g. country, singer/songwriters etc)
1600 Watt PA System
We regularly deliver this system to pubs and medium size venues.
These systems are nice and neat as they are active and require no external power amps.
The bass bins provide the extra punch to ensure your kick drum keeps the beat loud and clear.
Perfect for a band in a pub/small venue, or a DJ in a large room.
2.4Kw (2400 Watt) PA System
Ideal for band gigs – our 2.4K rig comes with all necessary power amps and leads (or else we use one of our active systems).
It never leaves without experienced crew to rig, operate and remove the gear.
The mids give extra clarity and power to vocals, guitars and snare drums!
AMP Sound Systems are one of the leading suppliers of larger PA systems for larger events such as outdoor festivals. Our engineers and stage crew have the experience and expertise to totally manage the sound end of your festival. We do not have any fixed prices or “packages”, as every event is different. We design the sound system and package around your event – whether that is a few speakers or a large hang of a D&B line array. Don’t hesitate to get in touch and discuss your requirements.
Other/Specialized PA Systems
For Speeches, Musicals/Theatre, Classical Music, Gospel Choirs etc etc
The systems above are perfect for bands or DJ’s. But none of those systems would be suitable for a musical for example. We pride ourself in our ability to provide to the much higher end audio world, with the highest quality speakers from manufacturers such as d&b and digital mixing desks from Yamaha and DigiCo.
We design and implement systems for all sorts of venues and events. Talk to one of our engineers who will be happy to guide you through what is needed for your event.
The sound system used for theatre work usually includes a main Front of House system, with “delays” midway down the hall to provide even coverage to the entire audience and allow every word to be heard. Sound reinforcement for classical music or choirs usually follows the same suit. We have vast amounts of experience in making your event sound the best, so please get in touch and see what we can do for you.
