Sound

Unless otherwise specified, all packages come with speakers, one console, full EQ controls and compressors, XLR and 1/4" cables, wired microphones, and DI boxes. Unless otherwise specified, engineers from BSSL will be present and will operate the system from beginning to end.

It is possible to connect an iPod, laptop, or any other audio device with an 1/8" output to our sound systems. We can also play CD's. BSSL does not provide the audio files themselves (background music, sound effects, etc.) nor do we accept USB flash drives.
BSSL does not rent out wired or wireless microphones without the booking of a sound package.


PACKAGES

D-Sound

C-Sound
$50 base price, $10 hourly (For a-capella semester shows: $50 base price, $18.20 hourly due to additional technician).

A-Sound is functionally identical to B-Sound, but with the inclusion of subwoofers for a deeper and more powerful bass sound.

A Monitor World is a separate sound console that sits near the stage, and controls the levels in the band's monitors. Note: Book early!

A monitor is a small speaker that sits on the stage and faces the opposite direction of the speakers. This is useful for performers to hear themselves while performing.
