There are PA systems for all kinds of events and venues available for hire. The basic component of a good PA system is a microphone, an amplifier and a loudspeaker. Beyond Sound & Lighting also have a huge range of active speakers (speaker with an internal amplifier)

Before choosing your PA hire, a few things need to be put into consideration, see below.

Type Of Environment

The PA system you hire will depend on whether your event will take place indoors or outdoors, in a quiet or noisy environment. This is because of the need for the sound to be heard clearly regardless of where you will be.

Number Of People In The Audience

The people attending your event also determine the PA system to hire. The audience do contribute to noise, and they affect the sound distribution significantly. You want to be able to reach every listener in the event, so choose your PA hire with this in mind.

Type Of Event

Which event are you hiring a PA system for? Is it a birthday party, wedding reception, a meeting? These different types of events, and many more, have different PA requirements. For example, a birthday party held in the backyard may require less amplification than a wedding reception because of the environment and number of attendants. Also, the type of event will determine the design of the speakers you choose. More prestigious events will require stylish-looking or unobtrusive speakers. Beyond Sound & Lighting also have a huge range of PA systems available for hire for bands and live entertainment acts from the biggest brands including; Cerwin Vega, Wharfedale Pro, QSC, NEXO, Martin Audio and EV.

Delivery, Setup and operation.

PA hire providers should offer to set up the system for your event, at a fee which is included in the total price. You may opt to install the PA yourself, but it is best if the hire company does it for you to save time and energy. Beyond Sound & Lighting can provide a turn key solution when it comes to PA hire, including full supply, delivery setup and operation and of course at very competitive rates.

Many venues have stringent requirements as to when equipment can be delivered and collected etc, be sure to have all the details required for a hassle free service.

Price vs Features

Before you choose a PA hire, do compare the prices of different PA systems and their features. The price rises with any additional component that you may choose. Keep to your budget and get the best PA hire deals. Remember if your price seems to good to be true it probably is. Watch out for companies who do not quote everything you need like microphone stands, speaker stands additional cables etc.
