Sound Design & Reinforcement

Sound brings your event to life, from award dinner dynamics through to an important keynote speech, we will ensure that you achieve the correct tone and balance

The sound may seem to be one of the most straightforward elements of planning your event. At first glance, all you seem to need is some microphones, a PA and some speakers and everything will be fine. Decades as one of the country’s top sound equipment companies means we know first-hand that is very rarely the case. In fact, even the most outwardly simple parts can be the most complicated. Ensuring that everyone at your event gets the best sound level, wherever they are in the venue, requires professional sound equipment hire and professional AV services to pull off.

A sound reinforcement system is built from a combination of microphones, amplifiers, mixing desks, PAs, loudspeakers and an experienced sound and audio technician. Their experience can make the audio-visual equipment hire package not just work but give clarity and definition to what otherwise could be a flat audio experience.

At any event, you need to ensure that your audience can hear your speakers clearly, and not be struggling to hear nor overwhelmed by the sound being distorted due to being too loud or badly mixed.

Our team of project managers and sound technicians will work with you to design a bespoke solution, aligned with your vision for the event and its environment.

If you have an event coming up, why not contact us to find out why we’re one of the UK’s leading sound reinforcement companies?

Working with designed. event production

When working with the designed event production, you can rest assured that our experience and pool of knowledge will enhance, create dynamics and give clarity to the soundscape for your event.

We pride ourselves on being one of the top sound equipment companies in the country, meaning sound is always one of our key starting points. Before finalising your audio, visual equipment hire, we will work with you to discuss how you need the sound at your event to work for you.

You may have a large venue that will be split into smaller areas for example – which means ensuring that sound from one area does not bleed into another. We often provide sound equipment hire for evening dinner dances, and this is a perfect example of the importance of ensuring that everyone taking part gets what they want and need from the experience. For example, one area of a dinner dance is occupied by a DJ or disco complete with lots of dynamics and bass. On the other side of the room, however, are comfy sofas for people to sit and chat. We can fuse these two seemingly contrasting spaces and needs to create a harmonious and enjoyable environment, so everyone can enjoy their evening, hit the dance floor when they want to but not have to shout to be heard over the music at other times.

designed event productions’ audiovisual equipment hire service caters for any size and style of venue. We conduct site visits following initial conversations – this helps us to fully assess the venue from an AV perspective. We use the visit to identify any potential problem areas such as alcoves, large pillars and other items that break up the flow and movement of the sound.

We’ll also work with you to determine what size and type of sound equipment hire your event demands and how and where the speakers should be placed for optimal sound quality. As you’d expect, we’ll also consider the look and feel of the event throughout this process.

Our audiovisual equipment hire service is comprehensive and our equipment inventory can cater to any location and variable that might develop through the design of the event.

We have wireless speakers for example which means we can carry the sound safely to outer rooms without the need for wires to be laid and potentially cause tripping hazards.

Not only is where the sound comes from a key consideration, but we’ll also identify how and what you need to reinforce and amplify that sound. We know that many people have a preference on how they like to deliver their speeches, and we can work with you and your key speakers to find the best solution, from headset microphones to lectern based mics. If you have a panel of guests or speakers on stage and you want them to be free from holding a microphone we can give everyone wireless lapel mics and switch between each person as and when necessary.

Our flexibility and experience give you the freedom to create the most ideal and comfortable setting for your speakers. We can additionally supply roaming wireless mics for Q&As in the audience, again with our audio technician ensuring even flow of conversation and sound from the audience and stage.

All of our sound and AV solutions have full pre-production support along with experienced onsite technical support to ensure the smooth running of the event.
