Factory Warehouse Tannoy System

Background Music Systems

With background music providing atmosphere and ambience in many commercial and industrial locations, selecting components that will provide reliable and pleasant sounding coverage is important. We can select from countless manufacturers to choose the best components for your music system.


With the advent of digital music, reliable music players are readily available through iPod, MP3 and streaming devices eliminating the reliability issues that were found with CD mechanisms of the past. We can supply iPod docks, MP3 players with USB and memory card sources, plus internet based streaming devices from radio and private sources.

Telephone Paging Interfacing

The addition of a telephone interface to a public address or 'Tannoy' system introduces the ability to make paging announcements from telephone systems within a site or from a remote location. This offers greater flexibility to an organisation who may wish to use the system from multiple locations which are served by an existing telephone network.

Announcements may be made live or with certain products, recorded then played back to avoid feedback from a point where a telephone is in close proximity to one of the PA speakers.


Modern IP telephone systems can also operate in the same way as above via dedicated IP interfaces (usually available from the telephone provider) to provide the necessary audio signal for the PA system.

IP-PA Technology

Whilst the general concept of public address systems has changed little in the last 50 years, there are some recent product developments which offer audio contractors like us an ability to develop PA systems in new ways by employing digital products and IP networks.

We have successfully supplied and installed site wide PA systems by utilising IP network products to link buildings across roads and other obstacles on large sites without having to re-cable.


With IT network coverage being extensive on most sites and buildings, we can link PA coverage to otherwise difficult locations using IP products which now make large, complex systems much easier to achieve and change around in the future.

We benefit by having our own in house network specialists to help develop and commission these systems utilising your IT infrastructure to simplify cabling and installation time.

Tannoy Systems

The word Tannoy is synonymous with sound, appearing in the dictionary as: 'a communications system with loudspeakers, used for making announcements in public buildings.

The phrase 'Over the Tannoy' is universally used to describe a PA announcement in a similar manner to "using the Hoover"! Whatever your preferred term, we at PAS understand your requirements and are ready to provide the solutions.
