    Ideal for a speaker that needs to move around during the presentation, or for passing around a microphone for multiple speakers. With a range of over 300 feet, this microphone is perfect for any size group, and the speaker can freely move about any of our rooms without loss of sound quality.

  • Wireless Lavaliere Microphone

    Much like the Handheld version, this unit clips on to the speakers belt or fits in their pocket, while the microphone itself is a lapel that can clip to the tie or shirt collar of the speaker. It has the same practical qualities as the handheld microphone.

  • 8 Channel Audio Mixer

  • Sound System-2 Powered Speakers
  • Sound System-1 Powered Speaker

    Allows for a single input such as a microphone or CD player (multiple inputs require a 12-channel Audio Mixer) to clearly be heard in any room, or outside on the pool deck/gazebo area. Also can be used instead of the house sound system when the audio needs to be substantially louder and higher quality than normal. Also ideal for presenters with wireless microphones that like to walk around, where feedback (squealing noise) may be an issue.
