Hire a Mackie SRM450v3 system.

Experienced Manchester sound engineer Steven Thompson has carried out extensive research into this system.

For its budget conscious price, this P.A. system offers a good degree of pattern control over dispersion, concentrating more acoustic energy on the audience as oppose to the walls ceiling and floor.

Being actively amplified (self-powering), a single unit could be used independently for smaller functions, for example speeches at a wedding. Active loudspeakers are also a practical choice when setting up distributed | delay-fill systems in larger venues. Price for two speaker sound system hire in Manchester | Lancashire with ~ ~SOUND start from just £70 + VAT

Beware of some budget system offers which you may see online! It is through experience, that Manchester sound engineer Steven Thompson knowns the Mackie SRM450v3 to be a reliable budget loudspeaker hire choice. Trust us: if your event matters , then it is very rarely sensible to go with an even cheaper brand!

PA Hire For Musicians | PA Hire For Conferences | Public Address System Hire In Manchester

Public Address System Hire In Manchester, PA Hire For Musicians, PA hire for conferences Hire a Bose L1 Model II system.

The Model II is an interesting one, its 195° nominal dispersion gives just about the widest dispersion on offer from a single instance of a loudspeaker. It is designed for the musician / host / act to perform with the system behind them, in which case it can also act as an on stage monitoring system. It’s very much a different way of working, with advantages including;

– Portability (when used behind a performer, it saves on the set up of independent fold-back / stage monitoring).

– Its wide pattern control over dispersion means a single unit could be used to cover a wide venue with suitably even level and frequency coverage. (Although the appropriateness of using just a single unit does depend on sound pressure level [S.P.L] requirements).

This loudspeaker system takes some advantage of line array placement of drivers, reducing acoustic energy travelling upwards towards the ceiling: which is good, seeing that this is not where listeners tend to be! With less sound excitation of the ceiling, reverberation is reduced and a more intelligible sound results.

During extensive comparison measurements made by Manchester sound engineer Steve Thompson, this system maintained S.P.L over greater distance than the conventional point source systems tested, (including the Mackie SRM450v3 seen above).
