Figuring Out Your Event's Sound Needs

Q: How Much Sound Equipment Do I Need For My Event?

A: The simple answer for most events is generally two amplified 12″ to 15″ speakers on stands with at least 300W RMS or more and a mixer for plugging in a mic, phone, or instrument to control the levels. Getting the sound for your event just right however involves a bit more than just hiring two speakers from us. You’ve got to consider the size of your venue, the kind of event you’re hosting, and the vibe you’re aiming for. It’s all about placement not just power. In larger spaces where you’re looking for gentle background tunes, spreading out several smaller speakers will work better than one big blast from a single spot. On the flip side, for a night of jamming with a DJ where you want the dance floor to feel electric, focusing your sound setup around the points of action makes more sense than spreading it all over the venue. If you are having an event with both quiet background and loud dancing music elements this needs to be considered.

For the vast majority of events and venues the following guidelines generally apply:

  • A pair of 12″ speakers on stands is suitable for up to 100 guests.
  • A  pair of 15″ speakers on stands can accommodate around 160+ guests.
  • Setting up two or more speakers is the standard, but for very intimate events just one 15″ speaker also works out fine.
  • For more than 200+ guests you should double the sound and possibly add in subwoofers

When it comes to dance music or events where bass plays a role, adding subwoofers or bass bins can significantly enhance the experience. Not only do these speakers amplify the bass frequencies, they also alleviate some of the load on the main top speakers, allowing them to deliver clearer, more dynamic sound. For instance, incorporating one 18″ bass bin can almost double the event’s capacity for guests whilst improving both overall sound quality and efficiency.This approach guarantees your event’s audio is not just heard but felt too, creating a more immersive and enjoyable experience for all your guests.
