This sound system can support in-house shows as large as The Victory 6 and Victory Belles combined. Anything more may need a larger stage and outside production company.

This is what we would use for small presentations. Anything more would require the full setup so please keep this option in mind when booking event.
- Option 2: Up to 4 wireless handheld mics and up to 12 additional channels for other audio.
- Option 3: Self-contained bands should provide their own audio system.
Audio Recording: Yes. Single Track MP3
