PA Speaker and Subwoofer Hire

Whether or not we realize it, PA – or “public address” – systems are a ubiquitous part of everyday life. Retail stores, bars, restaurants, art galleries, schools, gyms, houses of worship, airports – and, of course, music venues – rely on PA systems to deliver music, speech, and other audio. Some systems are small, even hidden; other PA systems are built like virtual walls of sound, intended to blast audio to millions. The Grateful Dead’s 1974 “Wall of Sound” is an iconic example; the Dead’s concert PA system included hundreds of speakers tethered together to produce over 25,000 watts of power. This was certainly a far cry from a 1920’s-era Magnavox PA system – capable of only 10 watts. “PA system” is a nebulous term, and can include speakers, inputs, amps, preamps, mixing boards, etc. – whatever delivers live or recorded signals to an audience.

Speakers are the most prominent part of of every PA system. They take electrical signals from an amplifier, and convert them into room-filling sound. PA speakers demonstrate a huge range in power, size, and function. Some people opt to supplement PA speakers with separate PA subwoofers to enhance bass frequencies, and provide a rumbling, venue-shaking low end.

Here at Press Red Rentals, we stock speakers to suit applications large and small with equipment by AED, FBT and Mackie.
