Live Sound Power Amplifiers Information

Pump Up Sound Quality and Levels with DJ and Studio Amplifiers

DJ Amps Make Your Music Thump

For discerning DJs who need their sound quality to perform at a higher level, a professional set up often includes one or more DJ amps. Whether as part of a traveling rig or a stationary amp rack, the right DJ and pro audio amplifiers are essential to the getting the best performance from DJ gear, making it possible to increase the maximum volume of sound to get the most out of the speakers, so that when the base thumps the crowd will feel it deep in their chests.

The goal of most combinations of DJ equipment is to get the highest quality sound at the precise power and volume level to best fill the venue, while protecting speakers and any other components downstream from damage due to excessive signal. This is why DJ amps and DJ power amplifiers must be chosen with a specific equipment specs and common venue sizes in mind. There are a number of features and amp DJ amplifier specs to consider as well. Some of the main distinguishing factors are if the amp has additional effect and controllers, if it displays levels to monitor clipping, if it has multiple channels or line ins for microphones, if it has a headphone output, what types of speakers and output levels it is rated to, how durable it is, the complexity of its cooling mechanisms, and how easily it integrates into a rack or DJ coffin.

Generally, the fewer features and more dedicated the amplifier, the more focused it is on sound quality as opposed to portability or convenient feature integration, but this is not a strict rule, and incredible sound clarity and power are possible in a power amp with some effects processing integrated. These extra features also allow DJs with specific interests such as recording or MCing to find amps that facilitate those activities.

Regardless of a DJís experience, producing exceptional sound quality with sufficient power to fill larger venues requires an external amp to supply an amplified signal and keep the party going.
