However, you noticed that sometimes the sound system does not work so well you cannot understand clearly what the speaker was saying. The usual problems of the PA systems are voice distortion, inadequate volume, booming sound without clarity and hissing sound. These problems usually arise when there is inadequacy in the mixture of signals, inappropriate capacity of the speakers in accordance to the space and low quality devices that are in the system. The first two problems are usually human errors but the problem of choosing low quality devices although is a human failure can best be address if you opt for a better quality sound system.
