I am looking into renting something to amplify the music and voices at my wedding which will be outside. There is no electricity, so it must be battery powered.
I called and the person said a “sound system” has multiple speakers, and a bass and treble adjustment. He also said I cant plug guitars into a sound system.
He said a “PA system” is just a mic and one speaker with no equalizer. He said it would sound tinny.
My question is…I play in a band so we use what I thought were “PA systems” on a regular basis. The PA systems I am used to using have two speakers, multiple inputs (for mics as well as guitars, etc.), and some of them have equalizers.
Whats going on here. I’ve never heard of a PA system w/ only one input…and not only just one input, but the input MUSt be a mic.
