Key elements for your pub sound system
You might think it goes without saying that speakers are integral to any sound system, but it really is crucial to get the right speakers for your project. You need to take into consideration the type of speaker, placement, location and usage in order to get the best sound quality throughout your pub.
The team at EES Showhire can use your venue floor plan to draw up a bespoke design blueprint, and will work with you to understand the services your pub offers and how sound can enhance them. Whether you’re just after a few equipment upgrades, or whether you need a completely new design for your space, our team can help.
We’ll recommend and supply the best speakers for pubs, tailored to your needs. Ceiling speakers are a great choice for having sound played throughout your pub, and can work well in multi-zonal systems – so split sound between the bar and dining area, for example. Many pubs have multiple TV screens for broadcasting live sports, news channels or music videos – if this sounds like your venue, you should also ask our team about PA style speaker systems to offer better quality sound across your pub that offers the best value.
You might also consider wall speakers fitted closer to ear level for more amplified sound, or standalone speakers that can be moved around depending on where you need them. Wall speakers are ideal for terrace or bar areas too, providing excellent sound quality without obscuring any visual design elements.
Particularly for pubs which offer live entertainment, amplifiers can be make or break for a quality sound system that’s fit for purpose. There are lots of amplifiers on the market labelled as for use in commercial settings, and it can be tough to know which is the best amplifier for pubs – that’s where our team come in. At EES Showhire we’ve worked with businesses of all kinds to shape and build the best AV installations, and we’ll use our experience to suggest and install the perfect amplifier for you.
If your pub has regular DJ sets or functionality for hired and private events, consider an amplifier set up for multiple audio inputs. This way, you’ll be able to provide one amplifier to all guests and performers to easily plug in their devices for seamless event management. Some of the important audio inputs to consider include:
- 5mm aux
- FM radio
- DAB radio
From the quizmaster shouting out the rounds at the weekly pub quiz to local artists appearing at open mic night, there are countless uses for microphones at pubs. Microphones can be useful for performers and staff alike, and are the perfect complement to your pub sound system.
The type of microphone that will work best for you depends on the rest of your AV set up. If you’ve got a PA speaker system or amplifiers for performance, for example, you might require a different microphone service than if you simply wish to hook it up to a standalone speaker on an ad hoc basis.
