Having a good PA is a major part of being in a band or being a venue owner. For that reason, one could argue that it is just as important as writing and performing your music. Music is an extension of yourself, therefore, filling the space with sound that reaches your whole audience is crucial. Additionally, the audio needs to have clarity and definition, not just volume.
So, in the past, there would be several variables that would determine which system you got. For example, the location of your performances, size of the crowd and portability.

These are making a play anywhere movement a possibility. There is no need to worry about where to plug in etc. because most of these have rechargeable batteries. Just like that, a concert can take place on a street corner. We decided to list some systems to not only help guide you in the right direction but also to highlight how cool they are!
