The history of PA Systems

A PA System has a simple objective: supplying a means of communication to large number of people. Public address systems consist of a microphone, an amplifier and a speaker. Connected, they can project sound loud enough to be heard at stadiums, sporting events and airports.

The original PA system was invented in the early 1900’s by Edwin Jensen and Peter Pridham. Using a carbon microphone and a loudspeaker, they produced a sound that could be heard up to a mile away. This technology was then used for the first time in a public place in San Francisco City Hall.

Other forms of PA systems include Tannoy systems, sound reinforcement systems and intercoms.
