Umm...what's a PA system exactly????
« on: April 05, 2006, 09:17:29 pm »
What exactly is a PA system, and what is it used for? ??? I really have no clue, and was wanting to know.

Its like where the mic levels would be adjusted, amongst other things, maybe amp mics, drum mics etc, and usually you get about 8 - 16 on an average desk. Pretty cool things, expensive as hell but theyre good for gigs.

PA System - Public Announcement System.

You should be able to figure out what it does

I'm not sure people at gigs are in the habit of saying "I am currently talking to you on a Public Announcement system".. but I guess things are different over there!

Its not always a spoken about thing at gigs, usually a sound guy just does the leveling and optimizing on the board and just asks you to play, ive only begun learning about it all since september.

*slaps rad* not everybody in the world has done a gig you numpty. Don't discriminate yo.
