A Word About Acoustic Feedback

All PA systems have a potential for feedback, which occurs when sound from the speakers returns to the microphone and is then re-amplified and sent through the speakers again. This generally manifests itself as a sharp, sudden high-volume piercing sound which can damage the loudspeakers' high-frequency horns or tweeters - and audience members' hearing.

Sound engineers take several steps to prevent feedback, including ensuring that microphones are not pointed towards speakers, keeping the onstage volume levels down, and lowering frequency levels where the feedback is occurring, using a graphic equalizer, parametric equalizer a combination of both devices, or a notch filter.¹
