Generally these bands will be offered to you with a very small PA supplied by the lead singer. If you want the best sound for your audience of 200 + PX be sure to ask for a Glenn Smith Sound system to suit your event!
Should you use the Inhouse team or Glenn Smith? There is often a lot of pressure from venues to use the in house supplier. And often they can supply a wide range of AV services for your event that outside suppliers do not have access too. And usually it is expensive! In many cases, and particularly with sound for your entertainment, Glenn Smith can offer a great alternative. Not only are we much more economical, but usually will supply a superior service. We specialize in live music production where AV companies often do not. We supply gear that will suit your event rather that overly expensive gear that you really do not need. And we will be working closely with you and your act with crew that really know thier stuff as we want you to come back next time!
My view on this is that if you can hand craft products there are some great advantages. I have 15 x Behringer 18 in sub woofer speakers and my main complaint is that while the speaker drivers are great the boxes are are not as well made as they could be. I have built some heavy duty boxes (but light wieght due to advanced desigh) based on thier design and the results have really been really pleasing. These boxes use loads of 45mm screws, proper slotted joints, 3mm aluminium silent grill and highest qualtiy glue and produce outstanding sound and endurance. No crappy staples used here!
