Hello sound guys,

Is it possible to place a mic in front of speaker to amplify the sound, provided that the mic picking up the sound and speaker are running through different sound systems. Would this create feedback?

Hey!

Yes it is possible and it’s actually what you’ll see on stage sometimes if you go watch a live show at a somewhat larger venue. Usually this is done when you need to fill the room with sound. Guitarists often do this. Placing a microphone in front of the amp allows the person to feed that sound to a much larger speaker that can fill up the room without losing the quality of the amp. That said, it isn’t a seamless thing to do and you’ll probably need a tech that knows how to EQ it correctly to avoid any issues (assuming you can’t do it yourself).

So no, it won’t create feedback because it isn’t a closed loop. But it also won’t sound perfect if you don’t know how to EQ it. Hope this helped!
