Tips For Choosing Portable Sound Systems For Any Event
Anchor Audio specializes in portable sound systems, and we have for
over 40 years. We started out with one portable sound system, but long
ago expanded to include options and features to cover all kinds of
events. Our systems are most commonly used in settings such as
education, worship services, weddings and other community events, sports
and band, auctions, government, as well as specialty systems for first
responders and military.
What we have found is that customers who have never purchased a
portable sound system aren’t really sure what they need in a sound
system. Taking the time to consider carefully what you need in the way
of a sound system or public address system and also considering what you
may value in the future can help narrow down your options.
How and Where to Use a Portable Sound System
The most significant advantage of a portable sound system is there is
no restriction on how or where it can be used. This makes it ideal for
community centers, schools, businesses and event managers to have on
Knowing a little bit about your application will help in picking the
right system for your needs. Some factors to keep in mind are
approximate crowd size, indoor vs. outdoor use, and who might be using
the system. Anchor offers portable sound systems for smaller crowds
(ideal for education applications), larger crowds (a great versatile
option), as well as systems that will do it all (best value). Knowing
where you will use the system also helps in deciding if you want a
traditional speaker set up on a stand or if you’d be better off with a
simple setup line array.
By choosing a system with multiple uses there is a greater range of
possibilities and applications for the sound system. This is an
important consideration for the future as well as for your current
needs. Making the choice to purchase a top-quality, US made, portable
sound system is rewarding to those who value both intelligibility in
their sound as well as longevity in the life of their product.
Battery Power Means Portability
To us, portability means having the ability to provide top quality
sound, anywhere. We believe portability means location that is not
dependent upon a power outlet.
Give yourself 6 – 8 hours or more with a battery powered system.
Perfect for indoor and outdoor use alike, these come as a fully
contained sound system, just connect a microphone and a media player you
are ready to go.
We always recommend our clients look to a portable sound system which
will exceed their maximum requirements for today. This keeps your
options open to address different sound needs in the future without
needing to upgrade or add on services.
In addition, many of portable sound systems can be doubled in
capacity and crowd coverage by just adding a companion speaker. This is
the most cost effective and versatile way to upgrade so that you are
ready for your next event, before it’s even ready for you.
