    Default Playing, Anywhere?

    What would it take for you to have a fully active setup outside?

    Let's say that I wanted to play in a parking lot, what would I have to have equipment wise to get that going?

    How long is a piece of string ?

    You are giving zero details about the size / scope / type of area / type of music / sound levels expected / is there dancing / is there a marquee etc ....

    Last time I checked no two car parking lots are the same.

    I'd advise you contact a local sound Hire company .. give them the exact specifications of the area you need to fill with what level of sound and get a price for hiring gear for the day if its a one-off event.

    Or you could just hire/buy 25k of Funktion One

    We throw tons of outdoor parties. You will need a generator rated for the power consumption your using(speakers, lights, laptops, anything else)

    At least 2 Powered speakers and a decent sub. A mixer to plug the speakers into and a table to put all your dj stuff on.

    You will probably want a gazebo of some sort incase it were to rain.

    Anything else would be to make your event more special.
