If you plan to have music, a video or audio presentation, dancing, or an outdoor function that spans into the evening, you’ll need electronics. Nevertheless, this is one of the facets of an event that can instantly shut down the party. Having the right electronics for your event is vital for its success. Hawaiian Style Event Rentals not only has electronic equipment for rental, but we also furnish all of the little things required to make electronic tools safe and usable.
Setting up electrical connections for music requires insightful planning. As a rule of thumb, it is best to consolidate sound equipment to one area. This allows the organizer, host, and/or sound tech to be isolated from the crowd. You’ll also be able to setup electrical connections in a safer manner. With that stated, it should be noted that the physical power connections should:
- Make use of surge protectors for the safety of the equipment
- Be safely secured to the ground in trip safe ways to avoid accidents
If you have a very large venue, it may be necessary to setup additional speakers to maximize the effectiveness of sound. When this occurs use an electrical map for the venue to see how you can position them in a safe way.
A wise course of action is to set lighting to a separate electrical grid or breaker from sound. The logic behind this is that if you lose one you maintain the other (unless there is a complete building power failure. It is also a good idea to keep lighting wiring tightly compact and away from crowd. Since lighting is often inter-connected, interference with one may affect a large section of lighting.
