What does LU Sound offer?
LU Sound owns, operates, and maintains three separate and complete live sound reinforcement systems. Each system was designed with specific types and sizes of events in mind, though they can be adapted as needed. These systems are (in increasing order of size) the Comedy Rig, the Medium Rig, and the Big Rig.
LU Sound is not able to support lighting or staging needs at this time.
If you are looking to hire LU Sound for an event, but don't know which system would be ideal for your event, we suggest that you submit a request form on our booking page. Provide as much detail as possible, and we will work with you to help decide which system would be ideal for your event.
Each system is priced separately. The main price for each system is listed with the system below. There may be other fees depending on the event. More details about our pricing scheme can be found on our booking page.
Each of our systems is outlined below with a brief description. For more information and technical details, click on the "Read more information about..." link at the end of each description.
** Please make note of new pricing for the 2009-2010 academic year. These increased prices were due to our rising costs and the desire to raise funds to improve the services that we offer to you, our clients.
The comedy rig is ideal for small events, including comedians or small lecture discussions. This rig can support either two or four speakers, depending on the room and the event. A wireless handheld microphone is integrated into the system for convenience. Up to seven additional wired microphones can be supported. A CD/cassette player and/or iPod connection is also included.
Past events supported with this system have included UP comedy events in the Lamberton Great Room, lecture discussions in Packard 101, and presentations in the Asa Packer Dining Room in the UC, among others.
Our medium rig is our most popular and versatile rig. Unlike the comedy rig, this rig can support subwoofers, allowing for a fuller sound that is suitable for smaller music events, including band concerts, DJs and a capella groups. A CD/cassette player and/or iPod connection is included in this rig. Up to 16 inputs can easily be accommodated under normal circumstances. If more inputs are needed, arrangements can be made for up to 32.
Past events that have been supported with this system have included a capella concerts, band concerts, fashion shows, and small drama productions such as the Vagina Monologues in the Lamberton Great Room, along with indoor band and rap parties at fraternities.
Our big rig has the most power that LU Sound has to offer. This system is ideal for medium to large sized bands and DJs, depending on the environment. This system comes standard with subwoofers, CD/cassette playback, iPod support, and up to four monitors. Weather permitting, this system can be used outdoors as well.
Past events that have required the use of this rig have included large rock bands in the Lamberton Great Room, Rally On the Hill and other outdoor band parties, as well as providing sound for picnics on the UC front lawn and Library Drive.
