Get a PA rise

Article from International Musician & Recording World, March 1985

If a band is trying to build the number of gigs it does, an effective and transportable PA system is of paramount importance. This means a mixing desk with reasonable facilities and a power amp of adequate wattage — but most of all it means an effective set of speaker enclosures. In terms of sound quality the performance of the speakers is far more influential than the specification of the desk or amp, and efficient speakers can double the output of less responsive ones.

The Roland SRS-80 and SRS-120 systems (80 and 120 watts handling respectively) are designed to give sparkling performance and excellent sound projection. They are competitively priced in comparison to better known brands of compact PA speakers but have sound reproduction and frequency response range to rival anything on the market. A switch changes the tone characteristics to make them suitable either for instruments and vocal or for 'Background Music' (tapes and so forth).

A range of accessories for SRS systems includes tripod stands and wall and ceiling mounting brackets. The enclosures are made from Douglas Fir and the design is robust, compact, and easy to manage. No separate equaliser is necessary, unlike some competitors.
