Do I need an External Audio System?

  • Can I use the audio system provided by the venue?
    • Typically, venue in-house systems can be used for announcements and background music which is more than adequate for basic conferences and workshops as well as weddings.
    • Most venue systems have a Compression System in place that reduces the overall dynamic range of the audio output by cutting it when it surpasses a certain level. Very often, this level is just above regular vocal range. This is done to protect their audio system from misuse but also has the unfortunate effect of dampening the vocal range of singers and instruments as well as audio tracks played by an entertainer.
    • Should you have an event that has any form of live music (DJs, Bands, Professional Entertainers, or emcees w/ their DJs); the venue will often advise you to engage an external AV vendor.
    • Please note that venues equipped with ceiling speakers are not ideal for DJs, live bands, or any form of high-impact music, as these speakers typically lack the necessary low-frequency response and bass capabilities.
  • What do I need to check with the venue if I am engaging an emcee for a Dinner and Dance Event
    • You will need to let your venue know that you will be having an Emcee with a DJ for your event and if the DJ can tap onto their system.
    • If they are agreeable for the above, do let the venue know that  DJ will need to connect 03 x XLR cables to their Audio Mixer.
  • Does Event Services Singapore supply audio systems?
    • Yes, we do provide audio, visual and lighting systems suitable for most events. Please do check out our Equipment section for more information. Alternatively, you can also consider our Event Planning Bundles for a package that is suitable for your event.
