Power Usage With BASSBOSS Products

October 14, 2022

Electrical availability is a key component to successfully operating your system. Without knowing the power limits of your loudspeaker system, you will be operating with an unknown which may lead to overriding the circuit breaker or outages at your events. This may leave you with a few questions to pose before you start your gig:

What power is available at each venue you’ll be playing at?
How high can you turn your system up with the given current available?

At BASSBOSS, we want you to easily operate your loudspeaker without getting stuck on the electrical application. This is why we've developed a core education series on power usage for BASSBOSS products. In this series BASSBOSS Designer David will be sharing 3 different, but overlapping, scenarios to consider to ensure you can put on a good show with whatever power is available.

Power Requirements

One of the biggest challenges when interpreting loudspeaker specifications can often be knowing what power is required to run your system and whether the venue has sustainable electrical output. Avoid electrical outages, output issues and disappointing your clients by learning what your system requires and being prepared in advance.

Watch this video to learn about the requirements necessary to run your system successfully.

Systems for a 20 Amp Circuit

When first booking a gig, it's critical to ask key questions about the electrical output at the venue. Most modern event spaces operate on a 20 Amp Circuit but it's important to confirm to avoid outages.

Once the amp circuit is confirmed - you can better plan how to set up your stage for the performance.

Load Distribution

The best way to combat limited electrical availability is to distribute your electronics accordingly.
