"Unparalleled Sound"

PA / Sound System Rental


North Shore Productions, Inc. is your single source for PA (public address) and sound system rental in the greater Chicagoland area. We offer a variety of simple to operate sound systems to accommodate events of every size, type and budget. We feature the finest sound equipment in the business and back it up with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. All of our public address and sound system rental packages include delivery, set up, sound check, take down and removal of equipment so you can focus on the finer details of your event.

Our PA and sound system rental packages include a compact, easy to use sound mixer putting control of entire system at your fingertips from a single convenient location. You will NOT have to reach behind one or both of our speakers to make adjustments to the microphone or music levels. Switching from one to source to another, i.e.: iPod to laptop to microphone, is a snap!

All of our public address and sound systems are true stereo systems with independent amplification for left and right channels. This approach insures faithful reproduction of recorded music and allows the user to independently control the sound level on each side of the room.

We offer three (3) grades of PA / sound systems: Budget, Professional and Premium. Our Budget grade systems feature compact, self-powered speakers which are perfect for events with up to 200 guests. Our Professional grade systems feature a discrete power amplifier and passive speakers which are well suited for events with up to 500 guests. Our Premium grade systems feature active bi-amp technology with independent amplification for subwoofers and top speakers. Our larger Premium grade system can accommodate events with up to 1000 guests.
