Dear Richard, this is not exactly the best forum for your hiring needs. I strongly suggest you put an ad in the local papers of your city.
And allow me transcribe what you have written:
"I am looking for an engineer to repair and maintain sound and light rental equipment in Baguio City, Philippines. Duties will include set up of the equipment as well. Good spoken English is preferred. If you know anyone you could do this job, please contact me. Thanks, Richard."
Okay, Richard, let's assume some people here can help you. How will they contact you? Your profile says you do not allow emails. Oh dear.
Will this floor speaker plug into my dynamic microphone?
I'm planning to buy a microphone and speaker to begin event/pub singing and have found this speaker but I'm not sure if you can plug it into the Shure SM58 Vocal Microphone.
If it doesn't how do I know which ones will?
Question answered by Daniel K
Smurf - Remember that I told you that you need a POWERED speaker. It will have an amp built in and a power cord.
That one comes with a nice speaker stand too - you will need that.
The SM-58 will work fine - you will need a XLR mic cable too:
Where do I buy silent disco equipment?
I am looking to hold several silent disco events. I understand you can hire equipment but I would like to have a set for myself. Does anyone know where I can purchase all the necessary stuff?
Thanks in advance!
Question answered by Magyver
Believe it or not, there is a very large amount of silent disco equipment available, the site below has over 5,950 items.
The prices are a little intimidating, some pieces are as high as $63,000, according to the price range at the top of the site, I didn't have the time to check each one.
I think you can probably get by for less money than you think, because you only need to start out with a basic disco system, and then add the silent disco equipment to it.
I think you may be on to a really hot money making idea, and the site below may help you to find a vast potential audience with money to spend, they have groups in each major city:
Dude, stop talking and start making some money!

Question answered by The "Axeman" cometh
go to your local band music gear stores and buy a 1000 watt power amp and 4 two way speakers and use a home stereo pre-amp and 3 or 5 disc cd player(use random play) and if you have patrons that prefer a radio station every now and then add a tuner to the system
How to do my own music/lights for a house party?
I'm planning to throw a graduation party at my house and I want to handle the music and lights myself without a professional DJ. What kind of speakers do I use and how do I set it up with my computer? Also, what kind of lights should I use (strobe, disco, etc.) and where can I buy the lights?
Question answered by ~Ryan~
Sorry but your question was posted in the wrong section. But do have a music store called "Samash' by your area? They have a section in the store that sells lightings, speakers, or any equipment that is needed for what a dj needs or for a party. Good luck and have fun!
What wattage amp and speakers do most mobile discos use?
I'm currently setting up a mobile disco and am in the process of buying sound equipment. What's the best wattage size amp and speakers to get? It's a fairly standard mobile disco so would need good quality sound to fill your average venue.
Question answered by John P
350 watts rms 15" speakers are commonly used - however based on my many years experience as a mobile DJ and wedding DJ a better long term investment would be to go for 750 watts rms each speaker such as RCF 725's which will be adequate for most venues you will likely come across with a two speaker system, rather having to invest in a or a pair of Subs at as later date.
what equipment would i need if i wanted to become a dj?
ok im planning on being a dj but im not sure what equipment a dj would need can u please tell me??
oh and is their a sofware im going to need ??
Question answered by the.techi
Hey, I recommend going on djkit.co.uk as from experience they have the best equipment at best prices but DJing depends on:
1. Your age
2. Your experience
3. Your budget
4. Whether you want to be a DJ that just plays music for parties and social events or a DJ that does scratching and mixing etc.
The thing you need most of all out of everything is 2 CD players (or a laptop), an amplifier and 2 speakers (a sound system) because without those things you can't be a DJ... You can get some really nice, cheap packages around from anywhere between £190 - £5000 and of course the higher the price the better the equipment is (usually, sometimes you do just pay for the company name and the equipment isn't that good).
The next thing is lighting, again lights can vary from what you want to do but I'm guessing you want to go into corporate events (like weddings and parties.) In this generation DJs are going more and more into LED disco lighting, which can be good for general LED patterns but for a more professional look I'd recommend getting some cheap projectors or some very cheap scanners.
Have a look around on djkit.co.uk and if you need any more info feel free to PM me...

Let's start out with a history lesson on Hip Hop.
The cultural movement of hip hop music was born in the early 70s. Hip hop’s fast paced music style is made of two parts; the rhythmic delivery of rap and the use of instrumentation by a DJ. Hip hop music developed its own fashion of music.
Hip hop music has its roots from West African music and African-American music. The first rap song was, “Rapper’s Delight”. This was sung by the Sugarhill Gang back in the 1970s. Block parties started becoming the norm in New York City, where I was born. It gave hip hop and rap the chance to explode in popularity.
Hip hop’s instrumentation came from funk, R&B, and disco, when combined together make this dynamic type of music. When the DJs at these block parties learned what the people liked, they began mixing these vinyl records and created music that played continuously with amazing transitions between songs. Hip hop was actually created by a DJ named Kool Herc, a Jamaican that had moved to the United States with a style that consisted of mixing music by using two copies of the same record. Many of the poor Jamaican’s in the town could not afford vinyl records, so huge stereo systems were set up so that many could here the rhythmic beats. These stereo systems were the kick-off for block parties. So with the musical talent of these amazing DJs, with the use of vinyl record mixing, the culture of hip hop and rap music was born.
Now, I have told many potential Djs about a manual I saw that is great for getting started in Hip Hop music. It helps to understand and create your own beat professionally. Take a look at it and see what I mean...its dope.
