Useful Tips:

  • When choosing a sound system for a DJ, or PA system for a live band, you should consider a number of factors such as your audience numbers and the size and shape of the venue. Both of these important factors play a big part in the type of sound system needed. It’s not as easy as using Google and typing in ‘’Surrey Sound Hire’’ and then picking a pre-made speaker system package when you could be running an event holding 3000+ guests. We are more than happy to spend some time with you and discuss your requirements, so we can tailor make a suitable sound package to your exact specifications.


  • Room size in an important factor when deciding on the correct sound system equipment to use for your event. If your venue is very long and narrow, then you may need to install delay stacks to achieve the best sound possible across the entire room or using a long throw PA system like the d&b audiotechnik Q series. Similarly, if your venue very wide but not very deep then using a speaker cabinet with a wide acoustic dispersion is key to getting a great sound.


  • PA systems for large DJ acts need to be completely bomb-proof, mainly because many DJ’s are notorious for clipping (overloading) DJ mixers….The DJ will be wanting very loud and clear DJ monitors so that they can monitor their performance, and some bigger live dance acts will also want stage monitors. This type of work always seems easy but you would be surprised just how many sound hire companies fail to produce the right PA system & DJ equipment.



  • If you have a live band playing and require some form of live sound equipment, it is worth knowing that the PA system you require is a completely different kettle of fish. You may not realise it but live bands require extra kit like microphones, stage monitors, mic stands, mixing desks, DI boxes, outboard gear, multicore systems, and 9 times out of 10, additional crew. When working with live bands we are always happy to deal with their riders and adhere to their specification. We make it our responsibility to ensure there is a good reliable working relationship between our engineers, the artists and the client.


  • For your night to run smoothly it is essential that the right sound system, stage monitors & mic’s are setup correctly. Live music is very dynamic and some companies fail to understand this, you really need to ensure there is plenty of headroom in the sound system and power amps as you can always turn a bigger sound system down and never a small PA system up. Another important thing to bear in mind is lot of modern music these days has more low frequency content in it than ever before so if you’re running a large dance event the system would be spec’d differently to a live band setup but don’t worry we work closely with you to specify the right sound system for the right venue, and engineer it in the correct manner every time. You will find different terms used a lot across our website like active or powered speakers, midtops and sub woofers. These terms refer to the type of speaker you’re looking at. An active or powered speaker means it has an inbuilt amplifier in it and doesn’t need an external amp or controller where as a passive or bi-amped speaker needs a amp and controller for it to work. Midtops refer to the top speakers of the PA system and tend to only reproduce frequencies from about 100Hz up to 15 KHz where as a sub-woofer is a dedicated speaker that only reproduces frequencies below 100Hz and down to about 20Hz
