Sound System Impact on  Dancehall and Reggae Music

The Vibes Builders in Dancehall

Sound System like Dancehall music started in the 1980's and ever since played a great part in the development of dancehall and reggae music.

A system consists of four tier Bass, Low Mid, High mid and Tweeters. Fifteen inches and Eighteen inches speakers are used to play Bass and low mid and most system uses 12 inches speakers to play the high Mid which are topped off with horns and Tweeters.

These are then connected to Rock containing Amplifiers,crossovers, Preamp, Equalizers, Processors and a Mixer.

In the early 1980's to late 1990's all systems usually play Vynl Records on Turntables but as technology improves along with time CD's and Computers is now the way to go.
Special mention should be made about some of the stalwarts that are still active in the business like Stur Gav, King Jammy's,Rock star, King Addis from United States, Kilamanjaro, Stone Love, Metro Media and Body Guard just to name a few.

In Jamaica you can find a small system in every community. With Dancehall and Reggae music doing so well aboard, most country have also build their own.

In England the Top selector/sound system is "David Rodigan", Germany has "Sentinel" and over in Japan there is the far east ruler "Mighty Crown".

There is no doubt that these systems has played a part in helping to push reggae music to the world.
