PA'S & Q THING
In response to trying to better meet my own needs and responding to the requests of others, in 2008 I decided to start designing a series of audio equipment to help overcome many of the issues street performers have.
The normal criteria you are fighting against with street theatre are size, weight, power, battery life and cost. With a mains powered PA system life is easy – you can throw as much electricity at the thing as you want, and get a good result fairly easily with off the shelf components. With portable equipment life is very different as power and quality come from a fine balance between batteries, speakers and amplifiers, all of which need to be finely matched for optimum performance.
