There are many reasons why you might need an outdoor PA system. Perhaps you’re looking to have a way to easily play music for customers or guests outside. Maybe you need a way to make announcements that cut through the chatter and noise of an outdoor environment.
Here are some reasons why you might need an outdoor PA system, as well as some more information about them to help you decide what kind is right for you.
What is a PA system?
The “PA” in PA system stands for “public address.” This is a system designed to make public announcements using a loudspeaker. These systems are designed to capture attention and cut through the noise of an outdoor environment.
These systems can vary in style and installation depending on a variety of factors. Sometimes they are portable and easy to set up when you need them. Sometimes they are permanently installed for everyday use.
The portable setups may be best for occasional events where music is being played, like a DJ performance, a wedding or karaoke night. These portable systems often include speakers, stands and cables for connecting a music-playing device like a DJ setup. They usually also have inputs for connecting an MP3 player or even your phone or tablet to play music from, as well as inputs for a microphone.
Permanent installations are more inconspicuous. These are designed to be left in place and do not need to be covered up, taken down or set up. Once installed in place by a professional, an outdoor PA system offers easy and effective operation on a daily basis.
Outdoor PA systems
Permanent outdoor PA systems are designed to withstand the rigors of the elements. While it is normally not advisable to leave your speakers outside, these systems are built for just that purpose, so you don’t have to worry about rain, snow, wind or heat damaging them.
With an outdoor PA system, the speakers are usually mounted to the exterior of the building. The speaker wires are then run inconspicuously inside or outside the building to the hub, which has an amplifier as well as volume and other controls. The microphone is often installed at a permanent location, though it can be removable or even wireless, depending on your needs.
One of the benefits of getting a PA system for an outdoor facility is that you can have it customized to fit your needs. As mentioned, an outdoor PA system can be made to allow you to play music through it from any device, including your smartphone or tablet. They can also include a microphone to make announcements that cut through even the loudest noise levels. They can also be made to allow a phone to ring through to the PA system—even if the phone is in a different area of the building.
When you need an outdoor PA system, it’s important to work with an experienced company who can create a customized system tailored to your specific needs.
