We live in a world where everyone and their dog is a DJ, and what with technology developing at such a rapid pace, electronic equipment and systems need to evolve with the entertainment needs of the consumer. Never opt for just using your home Wi-Fi system with party speakers. The equalizers on any DJ equipment will destroy them. Invest in speakers that suit your needs not only for one gig or personal get-together, but that will consistently give you the sound and quality you are looking for. Party speakers come with a wide variety of features depending upon who will use them and how they will be used. You might want a basic set up with a DJ controller, PA amplifier, and party speakers.
Or, you are more serious about your entertainment and are looking for party speakers that will enhance a mobile set-up that will include a PA mixer, iPod, microphone, and a DVD player. The venue is also a factor in the type of party speakers you choose as well as the size of the crowd you are expecting to entertain. This affects the wattage you will need in your party speakers for a bare-minimum sound or have some sound to spare for larger crowds.
Also, for best sound quality, floor speakers should be raised off the floor and onto a pedestal, with the high-toned speakers sitting at least 6 feet or more. Also, the bigger the cabinets on a speaker system, the better sounding the bass sound. The more dynamic the PA, the more likely it will have a third speaker with it for just the bass. Finally, keep in mind whether you are going to want portable speakers; if you do, then 12” speakers or smaller are what you should be looking for. Anything bigger and with multiple speakers uses at one time, will leave you needing a crew to move them around just to use.
