Halloween is right around the corner! Get your house ready for the best Halloween party ever with this list of key audio visual equipment rentals in Albuquerque, NM. Here’s to a spooky, fun and memorable Halloween!

Speakers and audio systems

Before reserving audio visual gear, you need to know where you want creepy sounds and music to come from. Is the party to take place in a central location? Are you planning to set up inside or outside? Do you have plans for a haunted house? For optimal effect, set up surround sound speakers, subwoofers and audio systems all around the party area.

Music is a great addition to parties, but Halloween calls for spooky sound effects. The best sounds for Halloween include unnerving wind blowing, a baby crying, water dripping slowly, bats screeching, werewolves howling, heavy footsteps, an old creaky door opening and closing, chains rattling and screams in the distance. Download the scariest soundtracks to play through speakers and audio equipment, but treat these sounds like background noise. Making the soundtrack just audible enough will produce the creepiest effect.


Projectors are all the rage for Halloween parties and haunted mansions. It’s the type of equipment that let’s you do an awful lot. Use images like a still picture on the exterior side of your garage door, a “Happy Halloween” sign on sheet-covered front windows and freaky, moving Halloween images wherever you like. You can also set up a projector in a room to screen a scary movie.

Another idea is to play a popular horror movie through the projector onto a wall (such as The Shining, A Nightmare on Elm Street, An American Werewolf in London or a classic black-and-white Alfred Hitchcock or monster movie), but play a spooky soundtrack in the background inside of the movie’s dialogue. Add in scary lighting effects and your Halloween event will be the most memorable party of the season!


Consider how you’ll create the mood and ambience for your Halloween party or DIY haunted house. Luckily for you, there are several ways to use lighting this Halloween season. For parties, use light equipment rentals to put spotlights on certain aspects or areas of your party, such as a dance floor or wall decorations. You can also rent lighting equipment to create jump-worthy Halloween effects simply by enhancing shadows and creating a skin-crawling atmosphere.

Want to achieve a graveyard effect? Want your guests to feel as though someone is watching them? Anyone can do this with the right frightening combination of spooky sounds and lights. The easiest way to achieve the desired spooky effect is to blend soft dim lights with stark bulbs, and creating a sense of discomfort with lighting is as simple as adding a fog machine into the mix.
