Fraternity house sound system
2 replies to this topic

My fraternity house is looking to invest in a sound system. The sound system will be used for outdoors and indoors(mainly indoors due to winter). Our budget is roughly 800$.I am not tech savy when it comes to audio equipment, so links or names to good products I need will be greatly appreciated.For the bass I will be building a design from http://www.billfitzm....com/index.html with lab 12s. I do not know which design would be best because there are a lot to choose from, but Possibly the tuba 60 if money allows it. Also, I will need to know what devices I will need to power this sub and what I will need to be able to plug it up to the sound system. Any and all advice will be appreciated, thanks.

Build a couple of O-Tops - http://www.billfitzm.../OmniTop12.html for the highs. You will need to determine what your music sources are. CD, cassette, records or some type of digital music. From there, you can get a mixer. A 2 channel Behringer analog mixer is about $50. You can get one that will stream digital music for about $150 or so. From the mixer, the signal will go to a crossover like this - http://www.pssl.com/...Hg-RoCIH_w_wcB The high output will feed one amp and the lows another. A Crown amp can easily power the O-Tops - http://www.guitarcen...53-i2670626.gc And maybe a http://www.zzounds.com/item--BEHEP2000 in bridged mode to power the sub.
Doing this for $800 will be difficult. On the other hand, this gear needs to handle some abuse. I used my home stereo to DJ our frat parties (small school) and it took a beating. I fried my Pioneer speakers, some Klipsch Hereseys and 2 sets of DIY speakers not to mention I found out that someone had dropped my receiver and broken the main board.
I wish I had some of this stuff back then. During the week before the party, I would prepare the music by copying songs from CD to a mix tape. For requests, I'd queue cassettes up in a jam box before putting them in the main player. We did have a CD player but for at least the first 2 years, CDs were very rare.

I did a little more thinking and if your parties are in the 100 to 200 people range then you don't need all of that. The Crown amp with a pair of these - http://www.musicians...-speaker?pfm=sp and a $50 Behringer mixer should do everything you need. You might want to add a CD player or 2 and some headphones but that will still keep you under your $800 budget.
