Sound system

The hall has a sound system installed, which can be connected via Bluetooth from a smart phone, tablet, laptop or other devices to play music or use as a PA system. More conventional music system can also be connected using the appropriate leads and plugs/adaptors. The sound system has a noise level limiter so that the sound level will not exceed the limit set by the Council for the Arc. The sound system is sufficient for many purposes and hirers are advised to use it and not to use their own. Instructions will be given on how to use the sound system if required.
