Playing background music throughout your facility (warehouse, plant, hospital, office, or school) can create an ambient and pleasant atmosphere.
The two most important reasons why you want to use your facility’s PA system do play music are:
- Your Carina PA system already has this capability. There’s no need to install an additional system when a Carina PA system already performs this function.
- Using your Carina PA system for music ensures that any critical safety announcements made through the same system will take precedence over the music, preventing important messages from being drowned out by competing audio devices.
