If you’re in the hospitality industry, you’ve undoubtedly heard about the increasing demand for "an experience." While this has always included excellent service and outstanding food, today's customers are looking for more. They want to take a memory with them that stays long after they leave your establishment, and there’s no better way to create this than with live music.
Offering this type of entertainment makes you stand out from your competitors. Guests come to Honolulu, HI, from around the world, many hoping to embrace the laid-back Hawaiian culture and relax for a bit. Nothing sets the stage better than live local music and entertainment while dining al fresco or sitting by the pool under the stars.
You can build your brand and boost profits by integrating the right music and entertainment. Guests tend to linger a bit, increasing purchases while enjoying the performance. To get you started, let’s explore the makings of a commercial sound system, including the all-important PA system, and how to choose the right one for your location and business.
A PA or public address system projects audio from the performer or speaker to the audience or attendees. They’re used just about everywhere, from concerts to clubs, leisure centers, restaurants, breweries, resorts, and churches. Administrators and managers use them in businesses, schools, hospitals, and retail malls for general announcements and relaying emergency information.
Live music PA systems consist of strategically placed loudspeakers, microphones, mixers, and amplifiers. The mixer is used to control the frequency levels of an audio signal and is essential for live music venues. The sound is captured by the microphone, processed by the mixer, and amplified. The amplifier boosts the signal, ensuring everyone at your venue can hear the music or performance.
Speakers convert the amplifier’s signal into air compression patterns that become the music your guests hear. At PAC, we partner with industry leaders in audio and video technology, ensuring our client’s the best equipment for their unique needs.
While not every venue is equipped for live music, all can incorporate a tailored music solution to maximize their guests’ experience. Commercial sound systems offer high-performance audio throughout an establishment. Depending on the business, we may tuck the audio equipment into a closet and distribute it to nearly invisible in-wall and in-ceiling high-performance speakers.
In outdoor areas, satellite landscape speakers and in-ground subwoofers deliver beautiful, even coverage, enabling your guests to hear crystal-clear music without seeing the audio source. We can also set up zones so that different areas can listen to different audio. For example, resorts play very different music poolside than in the lobby or restaurant.
At PAC, we have extensive experience in high-performance commercial audio and PA systems throughout Hawaii, California, and Nevada, whether for live music venues, distributed audio, or mass notifications.
