Getting the Sound Right at an Outdoor Party
Throwing a garden party is one of the great pleasures in life and If you decide to undertake such an event you must consider a variety of factors to make sure that your al fresco festivities go down in history as something to be remembered.
It can seem a bit daunting, but fortunately, we have broken down what kind of speakers and equipment you will need so you don’t need to think about it.
So, imagine the weather is warming up, and with the thermometer reading hearty 18 degrees it’s time to get your cheesy apron on fire up the BBQ.
Firstly, you’ll need to think about the scale, if you really want to go all out then a marquee could be a good idea. It will provide you and your pasty friends some much-needed respite from the punishing British sun and shelter in the likely event of a summer downpour.
If you have a feeling that the party could go on late into the night you might want to invest in a dance floor – you wouldn’t want that lovely grass getting ruined at the beginning of the season. You could also consider a stage, if you’ve got some live music then it can really add that extra edge to a party.
Next, you will want to consider what kind of technical equipment you will be needing, this all depends on what kind of event you had in mind. If you want to have a DJ playing, then unless you have an old pair of decks floating around in your house then you will need to invest in some DJ equipment.
Now, the most important thing of all, the sound system. Depending on the size of your garden and the type of party you wanted this will vary greatly. If it’s a small get together with a few friends then whatever Hi-Fi you have in your house will probably suffice, however, if you feel like your current system won’t quite do the job then you could invest in something with a bit more punch. This Martin Audio Blackline speaker is one of our most popular systems, and with good reason.
However, if you’ve already committed to your marquee, dancefloor and turntables then you may as well rent out something that’s going to do your investment justice, like the lightweight but powerful Electro Voice ZLX-12P Speaker. Sure, the neighbours might curse your name for the next few weeks, but what’s the harm. If you can have one-night basking in the party of the season then that’s all that matters.
