If you run a theatrical venue, a nightclub, or the music department of a school or house of worship, you may have a sound system that no longer cuts the mustard. Should you limp along with the current setup, replace individual components, or upgrade the system entirely? Absolute Music, the premier music shop and instrument rental service in Fairborn, OH, explains when you should bite the bullet and upgrade your system.
3 Signs You Need to Upgrade Your Sound System
1. Multiple Components Are Failing
If several of your components are failing at once, it may be time to scrap the whole setup and build a new system from the ground up. For instance, if one of your stage monitors is blown, your subwoofer is buzzing, and your mixer is having channel failures, the rest of your system may not be far behind.
2. Your Audience Has Grown
If your system was designed for a small venue that seats 50 people, it probably cannot handle a much larger room that seats 10 times that number. Thus, if church attendance has boomed, or if your nightclub has suddenly booked a national band, you may need additional stage monitors, more and better quality speakers, a mixing board with more than four channels, and a lot more wiring.
3. Your Needs Have Changed
Another reason you might need to upgrade your sound system is if your performance needs have changed. For instance, if your church system was designed to play recorded music, it probably cannot handle the requirements of a full blown, 10-instrument band. If your venue's system was built for two-microphone poetry slams, you may need an entirely new setup if you plan to put on a stage presentation.
