What is the best sound system for Aerobics?
We believe you are going to need a big sound as well as lots of energy to get your class motivated and energised, with 12” and 15” inch speaker systems highly recommended for this type of application.
15” versions will be louder with more bass, whereas the 12” systems, which compromise a little on energy and volume, benefit from being physically smaller, lighter and in most cases cheaper, making them a little easier to handle, moving from class to class or venue to venue.
At a lower price entry, we highly recommend the QTX QX12PA-Plus and the QX15PA-Plus portable pa systems, with UHF radio microphones, Bluetooth and USB / SD card reader all included within the system.
Spending a little more will certainly improve the overall sound quality and dynamics of your system. Products such as Alto’s TS312 and TS315 self-powered Speakers come highly recommended, but here’s a word of caution! These products are only self-powered speakers, so you won’t find any microphones or Bluetooth technology for example included. This is why they sound so much better, as every penny invested is on the sound and build quality and not on built-in accessories such as on the above mentioned QTX products. Accessories such as microphones or Bluetooth adaptors would all need to be purchased separately if required.
The Electro Voice ZLX series and the Yamaha DXR series speakers (again no microphones included) will be a more expensive purchase than those of Alto and QTX, but will offer you vastly superior sound quality and reliability. It’s also worth a mention that instead of the standard 1 Year manufacturer’s warranty offered on most cheaper products, these branded speakers offer anywhere between 3 years and 7 years warranty cover, giving you total peace of mind should an issue arise in the future.
Those with larger budgets to spend may wish to consider for example, the RCF J8 and J-MIX 1400w portable Line array systems. Boasting a 12” sub bass speaker combined with a small and extremely lightweight 8 x 2″ satellite top speaker, offers amazing sound quality, coverage and energy, plus lots of bass to keep the whole class excited and motivated for the duration of your workout.
