High Power Sound Reinforcement for Live Performance


20,000 Watt / 24 Channel Stereo FOH Mix with 6 Channel Stage Monitor Mix...

Let North Shore Productions, Inc. provide professional state-of-the-art live sound reinforcement services for your next show in the Greater Chicago Area. We set up, sound check and mix the your show to ensure optimum performance.

With over twenty-five (25) years of audio production experience and some of the finest sound equipment currently available, we are well positioned to meet all of your live sound reinforcement requirements. From an intimate night club setting to a medium size venue or outdoor festival, we have the equipment and expertise to make you sound great.

With over 45,000 Watts of available power, distortion and amplifier clipping are nonexistent. Passive full range (single amplifier) and active two-way / bi-amp systems are available. All of our sound systems are true stereo systems to create a three dimensional sound stage. This is especially useful when adding digital effects processing such as stereo reverb or echo to the vocal mix. To learn more about our professional sound systems, please click on the Sound System Technical Details Page.

High power, single channel mix stage monitors are included in the "Deluxe" and "Super Deluxe" Sound Reinforcement Packages so vocalists will clearly be able to hear every note they sing. High power, dual channel, independent A/B stage monitors which allow for two (2) separate stage monitor mixes are included with the "Ultimate" Sound Reinforcement Package. As an option, independent A/B stage monitors can be added to both the "Deluxe" and "Super Deluxe" Packages by upgrading to the the Mackie model 1604-VLZ3 sixteen (16) channel mixing console.
