PA Hire Oxford. AC Disco

High quality sound system hire: d&b audio and Turbosound loudspeakers.

If your event requires PA hire you have come to the right sound system supplier. Our speaker systems feature top-of-the-range loudspeakers that reproduce audio at a quality other speaker systems fail to match.

If you have had experience in the audio field, whether in conferences, festivals, nightclubs, or with DJs or bands, the names of our two preferred manufacturers will assure you of the quality we offer: d&b audio and Turbosound.

All of our PA hire packages have been tailored to make sure your event has perfect audio for speeches, music (iPod, DJs and bands) and film. We only use recommended loudspeaker settings and amplifiers and set the correct gain structure to guarantee your event has the best audio quality possible.

Sound quality is important at every event. We have reinvested in our audio equipment for years to make sure that the sound produced is extremely high quality so you benefit from the high-fidelity sound they produce, creating not just the 'perfect sound' but minimal distortion too, reducing damage to your hearing (ringing in the ears and eventually tinnitus).
In the section below we look at the types of speaker that can be hired for events and their uses.

You will also find more information in the tiles below regarding the PA and sound systems we have available for hire from our base in Oxford. You will also find more information about tinnitus at events and how distorted audio can increase your risk.

PA systems explained

Point source or line array - they ultimately all produce sound

Point source is ultimately used at nine out of ten events and will be either horn/reflex or horn loaded. Point source follows a simple rule - point and shoot. High-quality point source speakers will always have good pattern control even when used one speaker per side; point it that way and the sound will follow with a dispersion which is controlled by the angle of the horn. Poor quality speakers (other than sounding terrible) have limited pattern control and throw the sound with no control - this means you end up with sound energy going where it is not needed (or wanted) which will affect the overall sound quality of your event.
Good uses for point source are speeches, conferences, nightclubs, bands, small to medium festivals and generally events for less than 6000 people.

Line arrays are often used at larger events. They tend to be deployed higher and throw the sound further with greater pattern control. Line arrays are best described as multiple speakers of the same design working together in a line. A lot of time, money and brain power has been thrown at line arrays - they are normally more expensive and you tend to need several boxes per side to get it to work properly.
Good uses for line array are outdoor speeches, large conferences, large nightclubs, national touring bands, medium to large festivals and generally for events for more than 800 people.

All speakers systems, whether they are line array or point source, can be used for your event - whether it is a wedding, festival, presentation or conference. As long as the company you are using appreciates the rules that apply and deploy the best sound system for your event, your hire should be seamless and your happiness guaranteed. If you want to talk to us about your event, please contact us. prices start at £40.00 for a full system inc. VAT.

PA hire tips

PA hire You need to be aware of any sound limitations that your venue may have in place..., this is measured in db.

We need to know details about your venue, namely whether it is outside and its dimensions.

If you are having an iPod party or a DIY disco we recommend that all the songs you download are at least 320kbps, as flaws in lower bit-rates will become apparent when the music is played loud.
