For those about to “DJ” – here are some essentials to keep in mind for any DJ.
We must think about the system and the setup. A controller, microphone, speakers, subwoofers,
headphones, cables and speaker stands.
You want to pick out a good controller that has ready to use software to run your music through.

Next you will want to have a set of good loudspeakers like the EV’s powered speakers.
These powered speakers with 1000 watts will let the crowd enjoy your music without sacrificing good sound.
Whether used on its own or with a sub, the ZLX-15P provides crisp, clean highs and tight, deep lows for larger spaces all with enough amplifier headroom to make sure youre heard both loudly and clearly.
- 1000 W (Class D); 127 dB max SPL; 42 Hz 20 kHz
- 15 woofer and 1.5 high-frequency titanium compression driver
- 38.0 lbs (17.3 kg)
A must for any DJ will also be the all-important Microphone to motivate the crowd and to also give shout outs. The microphone that comes into mind is the SM58 from Shure! The legendary Shure SM58 vocal microphone is designed for professional vocal use in live performance, sound reinforcement, and studio recording. Its tailored vocal response for sound is a world standard for singing or speech. A highly effective, built-in spherical filter minimizes wind and breath "pop" noise. A unidirectional (cardioid) pickup pattern isolates the main sound source while minimizing unwanted background noise.
Rugged construction, a proven shock-mount system, and a steel mesh grille ensure that even with rough handling, the SM58 will perform consistently, outdoors or indoors.
To round out the sound you can’t forget a good subwoofer giving you a nice low end.
Yamaha has a great sub that is powered with 950 Watts. With a 15” driver, it brings a real “thump”
to your low end bass frequency.
Now that we have our sound setup for the venue we are going to rock, you have to include a good set of headphones to preview the upcoming track in the mix. These CAD headphones sound great and are extremely comfortable.
With these components and a reliable computer you will be able to get the party going till the break of dawn!
