What sound equipment specifically do I need to hire?

How many speakers will I need?
The number of speakers you’ll need will vary depending on the size and layout of your room. It is recommended that your speakers are positioned in a central location and elevated, as this ensures the best sound quality to be able to project.
If you’re hosting a party or concert event where the music has deep bass or the dance floor and acoustics are important, it’s strongly recommended that you also add a subwoofer to your speaker hire.
For most standard functions and events, our DIY party sound pack comes with two speakers and stands. With this you can plug in your laptop, phone or portable device and play your own music and sound. You can view our full range of speakers available for hire here.
Do I need to have access to electricity or power?
If you don’t have access to power, or your event is outdoors/remote, we have battery powered speakers also available for hire. With this you’ll be able to connect a microphone for speeches, and also has a port to connect to a laptop, phone or tablet device.
If your event is outdoors/remote or you have no access to power, we have a battery powered speaker in our audio range so you wouldn’t need any power source as it runs through battery and can last up to 10hrs.
