    Default Looking to enhance our party house

    Hello everyone,

    My fraternity is looking to add some things to our party house. At the moment we have a DJ booth, a few lasers, and a fog machine. I'll be on of the djs using a trkator s4 and the other is using cdj 850s with a djm 850. I'm still looking on the forums to buy one so for now we just have the cdjs. We have speakers but we might be looking to upgrade them, at the moment i'm not sure what we have. Does anyone have any advice on little things we can do to make the party experience better or on speakers to use for house parties with a bass? Any and all advice is appreciated.

    Thank you for reading

    I hate to restate the obvious, but 100% true on the subs, that is a necessity. If you have the funds, a hazer works much better than fog machines. A cheap and very effective tip was to replace all the light bulbs with colored bulbs. Every room of the house was a mixture or red, blue, green, and black light. It would dim the house while adding tons of color, without breaking the bank.

    UV Strip lighting, and it sounds naff, but some LED multicolour fairy lights are cheap but pretty effective lighting.

    Default Thanks for the replies

    Thanks for all the replies guys. Do you have any suggestions for subs? Not looking to break the bank on buying one but also don't want to cheap out and buy a crappy one. Also what's the difference between a haze machine and a fog machine?
