7 Things We Do to Assess Your Professional Sound System Needs

If you are in the market for a professional sound system, it’s vital to have a thorough assessment of your needs before making any purchases. At American Sound, we will outline the seven things we do to assess your professional sound system needs.

1. Get to Know Your Business

We begin by asking questions about your space, audience size, types of events, and the primary use of your sound system. We want to know what type of audio experience you want to create and how you want to impact your audience.

By understanding your business, we can make informed decisions on the best products, system layout, speaker placement, and more. With this knowledge, we’ll make a tailored solution that matches your vision and fits your budget.

2. Suggest the Best Products for Long-Term Success

When it comes to selecting the right professional sound system for your business, consider products that will not only meet your immediate needs but also provide long-term success. Our team understands that investing in a sound system is a significant decision, and we strive to suggest the best products that will give you the most value for your money.

Additionally, our team prioritizes products that have a proven track record of durability and reliability so that your sound system continues to function smoothly over the long term. We don’t believe in short-term solutions that may require frequent replacements, leading to increased costs in the long run. You want your venue to serve your audience for decades to come.

3. Discuss the Design and Layout

The design and layout of your space are crucial when it comes to installing a professional sound system. We’ll analyze the acoustics of your environment, taking into account the size, shape, and materials of your space, and whether your area is indoors or outdoors.

We’ll also take into consideration the specific needs of your business and your intended use for the sound system. We can suggest the optimal speaker placement, amplifier location, and cable runs to create a balanced and immersive sound. For example, a sound system for live music might have different requirements compared to one for a PA system.

4. Go Over Speaker Size and Quantity

There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to speaker size and quantity, as it all depends on the size of your venue and the type of events you plan to host.

Larger venues typically require larger speakers with more power to fill the space. Smaller venues are often better suited to smaller speakers that are easier to handle and don’t take up as much space or overpower casual conversations. You may need a sound system that can handle music and someone speaking.

4. Placement of the Speakers

Proper speaker placement can make all the difference in delivering optimal sound quality. We’ll take into account the shape and size of the room, the layout of the furniture, and the placement of the stage or performance area. 

We’ll also consider any potential obstacles or reflective surfaces that may affect sound quality, such as windows, mirrors, or high ceilings.

6. Wired Versus Wireless Speakers

Wired speakers are the more traditional option and are generally considered to provide a more reliable connection. They also tend to be less expensive than wireless speakers, as they don’t require any additional technology to function. Wired speakers could also have fewer disruptions.

Wireless speakers offer more flexibility when it comes to placement as they don’t require any cords or wires to connect to the sound system. This can be particularly useful for larger venues where speakers need to be placed in hard-to-reach areas. Wireless speakers are also easy to set up and can be a good option if you need to move your sound system around frequently.

7. Professional Installation

Professional installation is crucial in ensuring the longevity and efficiency of your sound system. Our team of experienced technicians will carefully install your sound system and make sure it is properly calibrated to provide the best possible sound quality. We also make sure to test the system thoroughly to make sure everything is working properly before we leave.

If you have any questions or concerns after installation, we offer ongoing support to ensure your satisfaction with our service. Our support staff is second to none!
