Where it all began...
The origins of what we now know as PA systems lie with the Magnavox company of Napa, California, using components invented and developed by founders 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 (and simultaneously invented ‘feedback’!). This technology was then used for the first time in a public place in San Francisco City Hall in 1915.
What is a PA system and why would I need one?
PA systems normally have a simple objective: they provide a means of delivering audible communications in situations where this cannot be achieved without such a system, because of numbers of people and / or the topography of the location. Public address systems at their most basic comprise a microphone, an amplifier and a loudspeaker - once properly connected and in sufficient numbers they can project sound such that it can be heard by everyone present, whether in a pub, a village hall, a church, a theatre, an airport, a railway station, an arena, a sports stadium or indeed pretty much anywhere that electricity can be provided - some systems are even battery-powered.
PA systems in Leeds & Bradford
You probably hear a PA system in action several times a week without even being aware of it. For many systems that is the objective, and using modern equipment it’s now possible to deliver intelligible audio throughout large areas whilst keeping the equipment very discreet.
Local railway and bus stations, shopping centres, theatres and universities such as Bradford Interchange and Leeds Station, White Rose shopping centre, the Alhambra Theatre and Leeds Met University all use PA systems to deliver audible messages appropriate to their own needs. Perhaps the most widely-recognised use of PA systems is for live music events such as one might find at Bradford’s St Georges Hall.
