Live Sound and Lighting Information

A PA system is made up of varying components. Typical PA systems will include Amplifiers, Microphones and Loudspeakers. They can also sometimes include other related equipment like mixing consoles. A PA system increases the loudness of a sound whether it be a musical instrument, human voice and any other sound source. PA systems are used in public venues throughout the world an vary in power. Some examples of the places you’ll find them include, music venues, sports stadiums, schools, aircraft and even supermarkets. PA systems vary in complexity with hugely from simple announcement systems in places like churches up to intercom systems with hundreds of different sources. A PA system can comprise multiple sound sources with multiple microphones, a mixing console to combine the source sources and control their volume output, multiple amplifiers to amplify the sound, and loudspeakers for ‘outputting’ the source. PA systems can be made up of passive loudspeakers with an external amplifier, or active speakers with inbuilt amplification

Live Sound and Lighting History

Traditional promoters were not focused on amplified sound for live events. It was only in the mid-twentieth century with the creation of the electric guitar, amplifier and also rock and roll that changed this. Most PA systems in the 1960s were made up of stacks of 12 inch speakers with amplifiers that would often distort because of not being able to handle the volume coming through them. As the era of Rock and Roll continued and audiences kept growing, manufacturers realized that they needed to develop larger audio systems and they did. By the 1980s, PA systems had starting to move from floor to ceiling allowing more room for staging. As technology advanced, more complex and smaller amplifiers were developed as a result of great fidelity when sound is coming from a single source. By the 1990s, powerful inline source speakers allowed larger and larger events to be possible much like the Stadium Arena events that we have today.
