Hi good day. I am new to the forum and I appreciate that there are places like this, full of information.

Today I have a question.

We are building a GYM of 500 square meters. and I am looking for a company that sells sound equipment, but the truth is that I have not found one.


So my question is:

If you had a space of 500 square meters, what equipment would you buy?

My budget is a maximum of $ 5,000 dollars.

I am looking for something of $ 3,000 dollars. it's possible?

Also if you know of any company that sells sound systems, please comment below.

We want to thank everybody beforehand.

I would look at line sources from TurboSound. They will take bluetooth streams and will play loud and clear for aerobics, dance and spinning classes. They don't take up much space and will carry their volume fairly evenly at the farthest corners because of the line source design. To me they sound better than similar Bose products while costing less. Well within your budget.

PS

Price is per speaker and disclaimer, no ties with Turbosound, just a happy customer myself.

We do work like that all the time here in the US. You need a bunch of smaller speakers usually placed up high around the areas you want to cover. These can be indoor outdoor type products ( speakers in plastic cabinets so they will last or in ceiling speakers) You can use if you like products like SONOS which require virtually no installation and you can stream to them or play music from your phone , this is very affordable and simple to do. I assume what you want is manly sonic wallpaper , or just some decent background music if not then you will need someone to see the space and design the system

I conducted a direct A/B/C/D comparison survey of several in-ceiling speakers a couple of years ago, and my favorite was the PSB C-LCR. I chose these for my in-ceiling speakers wherever they could fit in our renovated house.

Also consider playing the system mono. With mono it's the same sound everywhere in the room. With stereo you will mainly be listening to one channel or the other unless you are in or near the sweet spot.
