Having the finest quality equipment is very important to John. He always carries back-up equipment as well.
John's set-up includes the following.
-2 JBL PRX 812W powered speakers (1500 watts apiece) for the highest quality sound.
-2 JBL PRX 612M powered speakers (1000 watts apiece) for backup or additional speakers.
2 EV ZXA1 powered subwoofers (600 watts apiece) for thunderous low end.
-1 Bose L1 Compact high end speaker for backup and/or Ceremonies and Cocktail Hours.
-2 JBL EON 610 compact speakers for Ceremony, Cocktail Hour or additional speakers for larger venues.
1-JBL EON ONE Compact All-In-One Rechargeable Personal PA for times when there is no electricity for a ceremony or cocktail hour
-2 Laptop Computers (MSI and Dell) with Solid State Drives for DJ/Karaoke. Both computers use Intel i7 processors and have 16GB and 8GB of RAM respectively for high speed operation. Each laptop is loaded with the latest Virtual DJ 2021 software from Atomix and the CompuHost Karaoke V3 software system from Invicion. All music is stored on 2 Western Digital MyPassport 4TB Hard Drives. One for main and one for back-up. I get daily music updates, in all genres, from Top Hits Direct and also have Apple Music, Amazon mp3, Spotify Premium and Virtual DJ Content Unlimited. I basically have every song in the world and those programs are also loaded onto each computer as an instant backup player should the DJ program cease operation and need to be restarted (never happens!) I also have an America Audio SD Card Player (see below) as another means of music backup.
I AM VERY COMPUTER SAVVY!
- 1 American Audio SDJ1 SD Card mp3 player. Immediate backup and operation should each computer blow up on a job!!!
It won't likely happen but the SDJ1 operates like a dual CD player except that it plays mp3 files off of those little photographic SD cards.
Each 4GB SD Card holds 35 CD's worth of songs. No computer needed and my music library is fully backed up onto SD Cards.
4 Shure PGX and 3 Shure ULX Multi Channel UHF Wireless Microphone Systems with SM58 Handheld Mic elements and
WL183, WL185 and WL93 Lavalier microphones. They work every time!!!
