There’s real sound design involved in how we set up P.A. systems for speech based events. Of course, you can expect there to be no feedback at all between microphone and loudspeakers. And of course, you can expect to be able to hear the person speaking at the back of the room. But more than that, BBC trained live sound engineer Steve Thompsonis skilled in setting up P.A. systems which sound natural. Where appropriate, especially for key note speeches, he can create an intimacy between the guest speaker and the audience: as if there were no loudspeakers, yet the guest is loud enough at the back for all the audience to feel connected to the message. f you’ve got a meeting or key note speech that requires sound reinforcement, please see more details at

Hire our Mackie SRM450v3 system. Qualified Manchester sound engineer Steve 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. Prices for two speaker sound system hire in Manchester | Lancashire with SSOUND start from just £80 including delivery *.

Beware of some budget system offers which you may see online! It is through experience, that Manchester sound engineer Steve Thompson knowns the Mackie SRM450v3 to be a reliable budget loudspeaker hire choice.

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 one of SSOUND’s Bose L1 Model II systems. 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).
