Markey's Rental & Staging specializes in very diverse audiovisual areas of live event production. We pride ourselves in researching and planning for new purchases and in keeping current on industry trends. We also strive to keep a balance between what is "the latest" and what is marketable. We have spent several years building our audio inventory and support staff to handle the various projects that we take on. We understand the need for quality, reliable equipment, so cases are custom-designed for each device that we own to keep it from damage and dust.
Our goals are to provide the best equipment, the best customer service in the industry and to continuously improve on each project. We find the need to keep various levels of audio equipment in our inventory. From large venue sound reinforcement, small meeting room audio and everything in between, we have the equipment and the skills to provide you with clear audio reproduction.

JBL has been a standard for the majority of our audio inventory. For a combination of corporate theater and entertainment, the JBL’s seem to offer the cleanest sounding solutions at all volumes. We have enough line-array cabinets to reinforce audio for a theater of 500 or a stadium of 20,000. Along with the line-arrays we have two-way full range compact speakers that array together or individually for excellent sound reinforcement. A majority of our speakers can be flown and all can be ground supported. We have enhanced our audio speaker inventory with a wide range of sub-woofer and stage monitor speaker solutions.
