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.

How could I possibly forget them?
If there was a mobile karaoke bus available would teenagers be interested for their birthday party?
If the party could be a mobile style disco/karaoke bus would teenagers be interested? Or for boys, a mobile game station bus with interactive playstation games where they could compete with their friends.
Question answered by Little Richie
I did the mobile game station, it was sick! A karaoke bus would be great too! It will be very fun, I promise! Most of the mobile trailer companies always give you a great high-tech experience!
What would I need, in order to start a mobile disco?
Thinking about starting doing mobile disco as a way to earn some extra money ££. Would appreciate any help you can give on this. Thanks
Question answered by shoutingsteve
it depends on a lot. If you are going to just play music that fades one song into another ANY laptop will do that. People are going to tell you to buy a mac, but it is not necessary.
anything more complex would require a better computer or some designated hardware (my brother spins records with actual turn tables. It is a lost art.)

Roughly how much would public liability insurance cost for one event?
I run a mobile disco with some friends but we haven't renewed our public liability insurance for various reasons, but need it for an event this weekend. Any idea how much it would cost just for one event? I am in the UK so pounds and pence only please!
Question answered by ILOVELAMPLAD
You can get one off event insurance (google event insurance) it costs roughly £80 per year for £1,000,000 worth of cover, however if you cant find one off event insurance for your trade then you may have to buy an annual policy but you do get a 14day cooling off period and it will generally be pro-rater so could work out roughly the same.
Thanks for your utterly unhelpful response, yes there is more to it, i.e levels of cover, endorsements that could restrict his cover, wages/turnover/employees that could increase costs etc etc however the question was 'how much' not 'what is PL insurance', and as he has had this type of insurance before id take a punt and hazard a guess that he knows what to expect.
How to make top part of baby mobile?
Please can anyone help me with how I go about making the top part of a baby mobile? I have made the parts that will hang but not sure how to make the top part so that it looks professional/nice. So far, my parts are looking great so want something decent to hang them from. I have some wire that I could shape but so far, what I've tried looks naff.
Any ideas on what will look good and is easy to do?
Question answered by justanothamotha
I would look at Craftster.com & join. There are tons of crafty minded people there to help you brainstorm. There may even be homemade mobiles you can check out (lots of people post pics). It is very hard to make any suggestion not knowing what your pieces even look like or the style you are going for. My boys have a lot of crazy things in their room & I had an old turning motor I saved off a disco ball that had seen better days & I hung a bicycle tire from it horizontally & a bunch of old reflectors hang from that & they love it - it turns & I still had the spot light from the ball so it hits the reflectors & send all kind of light around - but that is very specific to a 5 yr old boy's room & his likes as you can see. But it's perfect for HIM. Lots of people use wood dowels in different configurations, some use actual branches, etc. You can even try a google search for images of infant mobiles DIY or homemade/handmade & see what you get.
A good place to advertise my mobile DJ service?
Hi, I have recently started my own mobile DJ service in London, does anybody now where is a good place to advertise?
Question answered by just trying to make a difference
attending wedding fairs will be a good way to market yourself.. and whenever you do a disco make sure you have business cards or leaflets available as people often use DJ's who they've seen at a party or been recommended by someone. also make sure your name/website address etc is on the front of your equipment as people will no doubt be taking photos at the event.
all the best with your new business.
Why would you hire a mobile DJ or children's entertainer?
I am conducting some market research and I am wondering why you would hire either a mobile dj or children's entertainer?
I am not looking for types of events more things like to be entertained, it's less hassle than doing it yourself etc.
Any help would be appreciated
Question answered by libratracy
If you have a large number of children (ie more than say about 10) then a children's entertainer would certainly be less hassle and more likely to keep the children entertained for longer, a magician can keep the children mesmerised especially for younger children, the over 8's - 10 years like a disco as they usually have all the latest music and give away little prizes for best dancer etc, its all a matter of when the disco ends give out the party bags and say goodbye to the children!
Looking for music to pump me up to be designated driver?
I'm trying to make a mix CD to pump me up, but I'm kind of stuck half way. So far I've got The Presets, Simian Mobile Disco, The Bloody Beetroots, Art vs. Science and Tiga, amongst others.
Got any other suggestions that have a similar style? Or just anything I can check out.
I just want to have a crazy/fun booze free night to make up for a lousy NYE.
