Different situations can call for different preparation. When you come upon a situation where you need to speak in front of a group of people, you know you want to be heard loud and clear. However, in order to do that, you must first take a few things into consideration.
This is the moment when you size up your audience as far as how many people will be before you. How large is the venue where you’ll be presenting? What is the proximity between you and your audience? All these are important factors that will help you discern what type of portable audio amplification unit to bring into play to ensure you are properly heard.
“…after we started using the PresentationPro, everyone in the room has been able to participate in the meeting.”
Having the option of choosing between different audio amplification systems that can project enough audio to reach a small or vast audience is simple, keeping in mind that you want to avoid blasting them with too much sound. With the PresentationPro™ portable speakers, you can engage up to 300 students within 150 feet in a large classroom or auditorium with its 30 watts of power. Its portability and power can also be useful for meetings of varying group sizes. Ted Koutavas, a technology director from Olympia Fields, IL shares, “Our monthly meetings usually have 50-100 people in the room and in the past, people who sit in the back of the room could never hear clearly or get 100% of the message & announcements. But after we started using the PresentationPro, everyone in the room has been able to participate and involve in the meeting completely.”
Even a larger setting used for diverse events, such as an outdoor field or concert hall, requires a portable amplification system that is powerful to reach an audience that is grand in scale. The larger PowerPro™ portable speakers can satisfy that requirement as they boast 90 watts of power that can catch the attention of up to 1,000 people within a 300’ range. Need more power? No problem. Add either a companion or support speaker to your existing systems and daisy-chain them for increased audio projection to reach an even wider audience. Woody Rust, a Therapy Center owner from Folsom, LA explains that they used the PowerPro and its companion speaker for a fundraising auction that had over 400 attendees and felt it was “a very good product, powerful and very user-friendly.” With that kind of power and amplification, you need not worry about having your voice or the music reach out to your audience both loud and clear.
If you find yourself in need of a smaller-sized portable speaker that you can comfortably carry around the classroom, consider the PA Pro™ or the VoiceSaver™. Don’t let these personal PA speakers fool you. What they lack in size they more than make up for in power. Depending upon if you use the 2-watt or 5-watt VoiceSaver, your voice can catch the attention of 25-50 people at once. With the 10 watts the lightweight PA Pro boasts, you can capture the audience of up to 150 people with ease. The flexibility and amount of power that these portable speakers have allow you to focus on what really matters – getting your message across to a few and to many.
Just as the amplified sound projected by portable speakers is affected by the space around them and size of a venue, so too do weather and environmental changes factor in. It would be wise to keep in mind that gusts of wind, the pitter patter of rain, nearby traffic, sirens wailing, horns honking, and other exterior factors can adversely alter the amount of people that can clearly hear what you are broadcasting.
