Being tasked with setting up the stage sound and lighting for an event might seem like a daunting prospect but one that can be tackled with ease when you have access to the right sound and lighting equipment. There may be a plethora of fittings and fixtures that go into creating the perfect stage sound, but without them, you might as well have the band put on a private show for the front row only. Making the event an iconic one is possible when you view the range of live sound and lighting gear available from ICONS Shop.
Getting Your Sound to Reach the Entire Audience
Trying to save on pennies by using speakers and mics from your trusted karaoke machine will see the band’s first performance falling flat within seconds. Various melodic vocal and instrumental tones need to reach the entire audience, letting the sound carry to those in the “nosebleed” seats allowing them to feel as if the performance is just for them. Investing in a stage sound system from ICONS Shop that includes microphones, live sound speakers, and digital mixers as well as using the right cables and connectors will enhance the quality of the sound produced by the band.

Proper Sound Coverage with Live Sound Speakers
Strategic and technological aspects need to be considered when setting up live sound speakers for events. The choice of speakers should be based on the size of the event and the amount of sound coverage. Before purchasing any speakers, listen to their sound. Quality live sound speakers will disperse the sound vertically and horizontally creating the coverage needed for the entire audience. The RCF ST15-SMA 2 – Way Active 15” Stage Monitor Speaker will deliver accurate bass and precise low-frequency control, perfect for small bands.
Picking Up Vocal Subtleties
Gone are the days when a vocal performer needed to rely on a microphone attached to an electric cord. ICONS Shop will enhance any live vocals to studio-grade quality and have crisp vocal subtleties reach the back of the crowd with the hand-held Shure BETA 87A Supercardioid Vocal Microphone. Lapel mics, such as the AKG CK99L Condenser Lavalier Microphone and headset mics, like the AKG PW45S Perception Wireless Sports Headworn Mic System offer performers mobility without compromising on sound quality.
Clean, Clearer Sound with Digital Mixers
For clearer sound and more volume, add a digital mixer to your stage sound system. A digital mixer will transmit the live sound from the microphones and convert it for a cleaner sound. Nothing beats the unparalleled mix power and performance of the Soundcraft Si Performer 2 Live Digital Mixing Console which combines digital audio mixing with a controller for the lighting rig.
Visually Engaging Your Audience
As important as sound is to a live performance, lighting plays a vital role in engaging the audience and keeping them entertained. Different lighting techniques combined and used in different ways direct the audience’s attention to the stage. For both wired and wireless operation, the Chauvet EVE P-150 UV LED Black Light Cannon sets the scene for any live performance.
