At North Bristol PA Hire we aim to provide a selection of PA packages that you can simply select according to the size of your venue. If however you wish to hire a tailor made system based on
your own specification or venue we are more than happy to discuss this and quote you a great price accordingly. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see illustrative prices.
Below you will find an example selection of packages to suit all events. These packages are to illustrate the types of systems available, however they represent the minimum equipment requirements needed for the chosen venue. Clearly the actual needs of the venue will determine the optimum system to deliver a high quality sound. Factors such as your choice of mixer, ceiling height, wall material, soft furnishings and even the number of people can have a big effect on the sound produced and need to be taken into consideration when selecting the right PA for your event. The team at North Bristol PA Hire are always more than happy to advise customers accordingly.
