ABSTRACT
The article discusses some basic tips to get the most out of a power amplifier (PA) system in the United States. Placement of speakers within a venue is critical to the quality of sound reproduction. With the PA turned on, attention should be focused on ensuring that all divers and amplifiers are operating properly. Finally, a compact disc can be used to tune PA systems.
