What to look for when buying a PA Speaker

Power is a big issue to consider before purchasing a PA speaker. In general, the more watts a speaker has the louder the volume it is able to produce. Those hoping to use the speakers so that acoustic instrument or vocal sounds can be heard above a drum kit should probably be looking at models with 200 watts continuous power per side and those who do not require such a level of volume can make do with less.

Size is also an important factor. A HF compression driver or 12-inch low-mid drivers and piezo horn are suitable for those using the speakers for vocals or instruments that do not have much low frequency, although 200 to 300 watts of power will be required to help the sounds be heard above a full band. For low-frequency instruments and brass then 15-inch low-mid drivers and a one-inch HF compression driver with at least 300 watts output are a better fit. A sub will be required for those with further bass frequency demands. We supply PA systems from the leading manufacturers such as Yamaha with the StagePas 300, or the Fender Passport PA system. We also stock active speakers like the popular Mackie Thump range, and passive systems from brands such as Electrovoice.

Our range includes speaker power solutions including Soundcraft powered mixers and power amps by Peavey. With a large range of stage lighting and effects, Gear4music.com can help you create a complete live rig for less than you think.
