PA System, i.e. Public Address system that consists of big and loud speakers

I'm loud and proud

It is certainly loud

I love a good crowd

That's where it is used

I like to repeat

You can use it for speeches

I can drop a beat

Or to play some music

I'm definitely not a parakeet

And it is not a parrot.

About the hint:

The big speakers are often called boomboxes.

Solution:

Fireworks!

I'm loud and proud

They make lots of noise. Apart from the lights, the noise is also fun.(sorry dogs)

I love a good crowd

They are used in crowded events

I like to repeat

they are usually repeated booms. Also, the echo

I can drop a beat

Those repetitions can be arranged to make a beat

I'm definitely not a parakeet

Obviously it's not. But maybe there are Parakeet Shapes that can be done

Hint:

Boom, as the explotion
