Don’t Let the Audio at Your Outdoor Venue Fall Flat

Don’t Let the Audio at Your Outdoor Venue Fall FlatInstalling a sound system indoors has its challenges. But one of the advantages that audio engineers have when they’re creating an indoor system over an outdoor system is that they don’t have to think about what effect the weather will have on the sound. If a designer doesn’t account for humidity in the summer or very dry conditions in the winter, depending on when the sound system will be used, it could lead to big problems with the sound quality of a system.

And weather conditions aren’t the only thing to worry about. There are also other issues that the engineer can run into during an installation as well. If you aren’t careful, it could lead to the sound system in your outdoor venue falling flat when you need it most. Here are a few problems that can plague outdoor sound systems.

Insufficient Bass

When you install a sound system indoors, it’s pretty easy to pump up your bass levels. Your speakers and subwoofers can be positioned near solid surfaces that will cause sound reflections and increase the bass. But when you’re outdoors, you usually don’t have any structures to rely on to improve your bass. As a result, sound system designers need to get creative to keep the bass booming. They may need to tinker with the positioning of speakers or add additional subwoofers to get the desired sound.


There’s nothing worse than going to watch a concert or another live event and hearing everything echo throughout it. Echoing can be a problem for sound

engineers both indoors and outdoors, but it’s usually more problematic outside where sound can travel greater distances before bouncing back off large surfaces and causing an echo. Large surfaces can also cause sound to travel to areas where you might not want it, like directly into a nearby neighborhood, so it’s important to design a sound system to contain sound to one specific area.

Noise Disturbances

Are you installing a sound system in the middle of a neighborhood or just outside of a residential area? If so, there are probably certain rules and regulations you will need to follow with regards to how much sound you can make. And you won’t be able to simply close a door or turn down the volume like you could if you were indoors to appease your neighbors. When you have an outdoor sound system, you need to make sure it’s designed to avoid breaking any local laws.

Setting up the right sound system for your outdoor venue is important. Studio 33 Stage Productions can help you choose the right equipment and provide you with a sound engineer and sound engineer assistant if you need them.

The Importance of Sound at Your Event

Sound System There are a lot of things that you will need to consider when planning a large event. Whether you are hosting a 5K fundraiser, a celebratory gala or even just a 50th birthday party for a close friend or family member, you will need to think about everything from the food you will serve to the favors you will give out at the end. But one of the most important aspects of any event is the sound system that you install for it.

Sound is critical to any event. If you don’t have a good speaker system in place, people will not be able to hear the directions that are given out or any speeches that are made. You may also not have music that’s loud enough or end up with something that sounds muddled and muddy, turning people off from your event and making them remember the negative aspects of your occasion rather than the positive moments or the reasons why you held the event in the first place.

To ensure that there are no issues with the sound at your event, you should hire a company that knows exactly how to make the most of the specific space you are using. A qualified sound system company will be able to pick out the best locations at your venue to place speakers, select speakers equipped to deliver sound to the room or outdoor area you will holding your event, and set everything up so that your fundraiser, gala or party goes off without a hitch.

When you work with Studio 33, we will also give you access to all of the equipment that you need so that every note or word that comes out of your speakers will be crisp and clearly audible to those in attendance. Even the best party planners in the world need a little assistance when it comes to sound, so you should hire professionals to make sure you are using a high quality sound system setup during your event.

Studio 33 can help you set up the right sound system for your next event. We have sound systems that are designed to fit almost any space, ranging from small venues to large stadiums, and we can help you choose a sound system that’s scaled to meet the needs of your event.

Plan Your Summer Musical Event

Summer Musical EventLive bands are great for any event where you have an abundance of people and nothing compares with the experience of having a live band.

Musical events are a great way to get people out to enjoy live music, and promote new artists. Live music gets people up and moving, and keeps attendees of all ages from getting bored. These bands are great because they can play a variety of musical genres and project high energy for the crowd.

At a summer musical event, you can have upwards of 1000 or more people in attendance and you want an entertainment choice that suits all musical interests as well as something that is appealing to watch.

You can expect there to be plenty of dancing and music and fun at any summer musical event. The whole city and beyond is invited, and the festival is an all-day affair of talented musicians who you might not normally see.

These occasions provide a very informal, casual and fun time for people to stand around and listen to artists they love or are not familiar with.

Whether you plan on one stage or multiple stages, there must be solid musical entertainment and sound production. While bands will have their own instruments and roadies, it is important to have the right sound stage equipment to project the great music to the masses.

What Goes Into Professional Sound Stage Set Up

Sound Stage Set UpWhen we go to a concert or live event, we see the lighting and speakers on the sound stage but typically we do not think too much about what goes into making it all of it come together.

The reality is there are a lot of functioning parts that go into a sound stage, that makes the event sound as good as it does.

Now say a popular band is coming to town, for that there are could be eight precision speakers and four sub speakers that will deliver the sound, just at the minimum.

These are put into place by ground supported lifts, that will make sure when the volume is too loud, they won’t shift or fall.

In addition to those speakers, there are also four sound wedges that will be placed behind screens near the stage. These all connect to an amplifier system that consists of two high-powered amplifier racks.

All of this is then controlled by a digital soundboard off of the stage.

There is also a microphone kit box and drum microphone kit that are hooked up to their respective instruments. In conjunction with those kits, there are also a lot of microphones and mic stands that need to be assembled and placed accordingly.

Anything can happen at a concert, even a dead microphone. When that happens, backups must be on the ready, off stage, so the performer can grab one and get back to the show.

Once all of this is installed, sound technicians will double check once installation is done that everything is working like it is supposed to.

Studio 33 offers sound systems, lighting, sound reinforcement and special effects for different types of professional events such as night clubs and concerts in Northern California.
