ATP are based in Chesterfield Derbyshire and we design and install sound systems / PA Systems for Pubs, Nightclubs, Restaurants, Houses of Worship, Leuisure Facilities, Theatres, Sports Stadiums, Factories, Office Buildings, Community Centres, etc.


All systems are designed using the best quality components for your budget and are installed to be as unobtrusive as possible.

A few points to bear in mind;


Any sound system installation will sound far superior if the design of the room has taken sound treatment into consideration.

Sound reflects off hard sufaces, imagine all the hard sufaces in the room are mirrors, you will see a multitude of reflections in the mirrors, this is what happens to sound in an untreated room. In other words you get a cacophony of sound that can be unintelligible to the listener, it's also why when there are a lot of people in an empty un treated room all talking at once it's difficult to hear the person standing next to you, now add a sound system and you've got a recipe for disaster.


With careful consideration taking into account the design of the room a lot of these problems can be alleviated, soft furnishings, carpets and curtains all help to reduce sound reflections and careful placement of speakers is essential. Of course this may not be practical if for example the sound system is being installed in a sports hall or community centre etc, but with the correct placement of speakers and acoustic tiles / absorbers the sound reflections and reverb times can be better controlled.


When designing your business don't leave the installation of any sound system until last, if you do it can make the difference between a comfortable environment or a loud tiring racket, which won't encourage customers to come back.


ATP can offer advice for the best solution for your building, even if you only have the budget for fixed equipment and no sound treatment.
