Upgrades and re-engineering
There are many reasons why an existing sound or video system needs to be changed. For example, the equipment is old and tired or physical connections are failing and letting you down. The last thing you want is for the system to fail.
Most pieces of equipment should last around 10 years. However, this may not be the case with some ‘budget-level’ equipment and it will also depend on how it is used. Physical connections (e.g. microphone leads/XLRs) are likely to need a little attention during that time.
It may be that your requirements and needs have changed since the system was installed and perhaps the system no longer does what you want it to do.
When your requirements change, often changes will need to be made to the equipment. For example, a loudspeaker system designed for speech cannot be capable of reproducing music. In this instance, it is likely to mean that the loudspeakers, along with the amplifier(s) and graphic equaliser(s), will need to be replaced.
It would be very easy for us to say “Scrap the whole lot and start again”. This is something we do not do. There are often many ways to upgrade or replace key functions of what is otherwise a sound system.
