This is a tale of two bands: Both bands play a lot of parties and events that require them to bring their own PA system. You can barely hear one band because their system sounds muddy. You notice that one of their PA speakers is all banged up and looks like it took a tumble out of the back of a van — which it did. Earlier when they were unloading, the bass playere lost his balance trying to lug that heavy, awkward PA speaker out of the van. It slipped from his hands, landed on the drummer's foot, and rolled down the embankment into the bushes.
The other band has a PA system with speakers that look like they just came out of the box. When you see them loading up their stuff later, you notice their speaker bags. They fit their gear perfectly. They've got covers for the drummer's monitor speaker and a hard case for the mixer. The PA speaker stands fold nicely into a rugged bag with a reinforced handle and shoulder strap. The band easily loads each speaker safely into the van using the handles or straps. They're quickly and smoothly on the way to their next gig.
When it comes to your PA equipment, strive to be like the second band. A full complement of PA Speaker bags, covers and cases is an investment that will prolong the life of your PA and your toes.
You have tons of options when it comes to bags and cases for your PA speakers. If you're traveling longer distances than the loading dock to the stage, you'll want to check out our bags with swivel casters. Smoothly roll your speakers up the ramp and you'll be rocking in no time.
Many of the bags we carry include pockets and room inside for your other accessories. Keep those screws, slip mats, and cables handy.
Ever travel where you don't have control of how your gear is handled? We're talking air flight. We've all seen how haphazardly bags are sometimes thrown. You'll want to have some serious padding in these cases to protect your PA speakers. Consider one of our hard cases so your equipment is safe from the elements and possible dings from other baggage.
Speaking of the elements, many of our speaker and subwoofer bags come with a water-resistant cover. Easily slip these on when they're not in use so you don't get caught by surprise by a torrential rainfall. Some of our covers are even padded, giving you an extra level of protection.
When you choose your PA speaker case, double-check the dimensions of your gear and the bag. You want a snug fit. A case that's too big doesn't do your gear any favors — avoid damage with a snug fit that keeps your speakers in place.
If you have any questions about matching bags and cases to your equipment, give us a call. We'll help you make sure all of your PA gear is protected.
