2 Things To Consider When Purchasing DJ Equipment

Finding the right DJ equipment for you and your clients can be a bit confusing, mostly because there are a massive amount of different types of equipment to choose from. Things get even more confusing when you realize that all of the various bits of equipment each have their own unique set of benefits. Listed below are two things to consider when you are purchasing DJ equipment.


The first and most important thing to keep in mind when you are purchasing DJ equipment is the type of venue that you are planning on specializing in or that your next job is dealing with. This is vital, as not every piece of equipment that you purchase will be suitable for every type of venue or event.

For example, if you are going to be working at an outdoor or very large venue, then you do not want to skimp on equipment and get smaller speakers and audio equipment. If you do, the sound may not carry clearly to all of your client's guests, which will result in an unhappy client. In addition, you do not want to buy the largest and most powerful speakers that you can if you are working in smaller venues as the sound can quickly overwhelm the space and possible become unpleasant for your client's guests.


Another thing to consider when purchasing equipment is how mobile the equipment will need to be at whatever venue or event that you are working at. This is especially important when it comes to microphones if you are working at a venue where multiple people may be speaking. For example, if the only people that need to use the microphone are you and the client, then you can save a bit of money and go with a single wired microphone on the stage.

However, if your client is interested in allowing well-wishers and other people to make speeches or toasts, such as at an anniversary party or wedding reception, then you should consider having multiple wireless microphones. Your client and his or her guests will enjoy the convenience of simply being able to be handed the microphone rather than having to make their way to the front of the venue to reach a wired microphone.

 When choosing your equipment, make sure to keep in the mind the venue requirements and how mobile your equipment will need to be. For more information, contact Metro Sound & Lighting or a similar company.
