Sound systems are used in countless applications. Every day in our travels we encounter a sound system of sorts everywhere we go. We have sound systems in our homes and cars. Virtually every store you walk into has a system, restaurants, even the elevator in the hospital.
The type of venue and application often dictate what type of system is installed. There are endless options for speakers from a little blue tooth portable to ones the size of a small car. With all these options also comes a wide range of prices.
Many who are not experienced with Audio Visual equipment often choose their system based on the cost end up with disappointing results. Some are of the opinion that a speaker is a speaker… but in a similar way to cars, a KIA is not equal to a Tesla… so is the same with AV!
Reasons Sound Systems Matter
A good sound system improves the audio quality during an event especially when musicians, choirs, bands and speakers are involved. Glitches are less likely to occur when these people are able to hear what they sound like.
Imagine going to a concert to hear your favourite band, looking forward to singing along to your favourite songs but all you hear is crackling and buzzing… can’t understand a word they are singing. This would leave fans disappointed and probably with a sour taste towards the venue and the band.
Referring to the person talking… Houses of Worship rely on clear and crisp sound as the priest or pastor delivery their sermon. If patrons can’t hear what is being said they will not be coming back to that venue. This goes for any application that involves amplifying a voice.
Purchasing a Sound System
Sound quality is dependent on multiple factors; equipment is one of them, but so is understanding the environment that the AV will be operating in. Purchasing your sound system from reputable and knowledgeable retailers can save time and money in the long run.
