You are planning your reception or event, so how much sound do you need? Well the answer is simple..... It depends.
Certainly, much of the decision will be based upon the size of your event, but the other things to strongly weigh are your personal tastes, musical genre, and room configuration. See our blog post on Reception Configuration for additional information.
If your room is extremely large, you simply are not going to have good coverage with a 2 speaker sound system. Sure, everyone will be able to hear in most cases, but if this is supposed to be a party, then just hearing it isn't enough. If your room is large, it will be necessary (at a minimum) to supplement the sound with an extended set up, (additional, strategically placed speakers) to provide evenly distributed sound. Getting too small a sound package for your event will result in the system having to be pushed to limits that will cause distortion. Secure our smaller sound system for cocktail parties, or receptions and events with (typically) fewer than 75 people, big bass response is not required, or rooms that are compact in size.
One Thump or Two?
If you intend to have a lot of dancing, and your genre of choice includes pop/hip-hop, or other "bass intensive" genres, then sub woofers will be needed. They provide great low end response, and a true dance party/club feel. Typically, it is best to have two subs properly spaced to provide the best sound and coverage. Our Gold Package will provide clients with excellent sound coverage and low end response for any event up to 250+ guests. Remember, volumes have no limit as to how much they can be reduced, but there are hard limits as to how much volumes may be increased.
Cocktail Hour or Ceremony Sound?
If you are having a portion of your event in a separate room, a "mini set up", may be needed. These set ups are ideal for ambiance, and ceremonies and may be added to any of our packages.
The Mother of ALL Sound!
If your event is extremely large 300+ people, and you want to have the ultimate sound experience, then our Platinum Package is for you. Large club quality sound to dance the night away!
