What Are PA Systems?

PA system is shorthand for Public Address System, but they can also be known as Electronic Amplification Systems. PA systems use amps, speakers and microphones to create a network of connected outputs. These systems can improve your customer experience by providing information (for example calling ticket numbers or train stop locations), providing necessary school systems (to signal lunch times, class times etc) and play background music.

They are a range of different types of PA systems at different price points. We aim to develop and install a system that’s right for you and your budget.

PA System FAQs

What does PA sound system stand for?

PA sound system stands for Public Address sound system. They are used to amplify the sound that is captured by a microphone or other sound input (like a guitar lead or auxiliary cable) and play it through a speaker at a much larger volume. This makes PA systems useful for:

  • Public speakers
  • Music shows
  • Sport stadiums
  • Schools
  • Much more!

How many speakers do I need and how powerful should they be?

This really depends on what exactly you will be using your PA system for. For example, som questions we would ask include:

  • Will it be indoors or outdoors?
  • Will it be for playing loud music, background music for shoppers or just be for announcements?
  • Do you need powered or unpowered speakers?
  • What is your budget

Depending on your answer to these questions and many more, we can help you find the right speakers that will suit your needs and budget.

Do you install PA systems?

Yes absolutely! We can help you find the right PA system, install it, test it and have you up and running within your budget and a reasonable timeframe.

Powered vs unpowered speaker for a PA system? (active vs passive speakers)

A powered speaker (or an active speaker) is a speaker that includes a built-in amplifier. This makes powered speakers much easier to set up and use, all you need to do is plug them into the wall and you’re ready to go. The downside is you don’t get the benefit of the adjustability that comes with an external amplifier setup.

An unpowered speaker (or a passive speaker) is a speaker that doesn’t include a built in amplifier and requires an external amp/s. This gives you much more control over minute sound/power details that powered speakers don’t, but they are more difficult to setup and aren’t great for scenarios where a simple setup is required.

Do I need a powered or unpowered PA system?

When a simple or small PA system is required (e.g. for a small music venue, a school, a church etc), a powered (active) speaker system is the best option. This will provide high quality audio, while being a simpler and easy to use system.

When a more customised or studio quality speaker system is required (e.g. for a large music venue, the use of a mixer is required, you have a large number of speakers etc), a passive (unpowered) speaker system is the best option.

How much does a PA system cost?

This really depends on what your PA system needs to do and how it is setup. A small, single speaker PA system can be rather inexpensive, while a multi speaker sound system in a music hall or throughout a school campus will be much more expensive.
