A PA system is an electronic system made up of microphones, mixers, amplifiers, loudspeakers and other related equipment.

It’s often used in clubs, leisure centres, arenas and airports to deliver important messages, project music and more.

  1. How powerful PA system do I need?

When designing a PA system for indoor functions, you should gauge for 6-8 watts per person with subwoofers for extra bass if needed. The accurate number of watts you will need depends both on the size of the venue and the number of people in the space. A medium sized venture with a capacity of 250-500 people will usually need around 2,000 watts however, might require far more than this depending on these variables. An audio visual engineer will be able to assess the venue and provide a system designed for your needs.

  1. Which PA system is best?

QSC, Bose, JBL, Yamaha, and Roland are all reliable audio brands of PA systems. The type of PA system you choose will depend on your requirements and the specifications of your project. For smaller events only requiring 20-300 watts, portable PA systems are an affordable option. Alternatively, you could look at active PA speakers or column PA systems.

For outdoor venues and live performances, it is recommended that you have two speakers in your setup to ensure that you have enough watts to cover the entire area.
