Step Out and Enjoy the Sounds of Summer a With Whole Home Audio System
Transform Your Backyard Into an Audiophile’s Dream
It’s summertime, which means you’ll want to spend your days outside soaking up the Woodlands, Texas sun. There’s just one problem – you don’t want to lose the top-quality audio you get from your whole home audio system. The solution? Integrate an outdoor sound system into your backyard or pool area. In this blog, we’ll tell you what you need to know when planning a reliable, long-lasting and great-sounding auditory experience in your outdoor spaces. Read on for more.
You probably spend a lot of time and effort making your landscape look as good as possible. Whether you’re a do-it-yourselfer, or you employ the top local gardeners, you don’t want to ruin all of that hard work with ugly components. And while science hasn’t quite invented a way to make speakers completely invisible, you can integrate camouflaged units within foliage and bushes to mask their appearance.
Speaking of nearly-invisible devices, you’ll want a subwoofer that can deliver enough bass without being seen. The perfect solution is an underground sub. When it’s installed in your yard or under your deck, it will provide the weighty low notes you love without disrupting the appearance of your landscape.
Even though the weather may be beautiful right now, that doesn’t mean it will stay that way. Ensure that your components consist of rust-proof materials, feature completely sealed cabinets and offer some kind of excess water drainage to make sure they survive the next major storm.
Moreover, one of the leading causes of damage comes at the connections. Wired speakers are more reliable, even in your backyard, but if connections are not weather-proofed, they can easily malfunction. They should be sealed in water-tight rubber or plastic to avoid damage.
Outdoor speakers are different from indoor devices because the ones in your home use the conditions of the room to their advantage. Sound hits the walls, and either absorbs or reflects from the walls, creating perfectly full-sounding audio. Unfortunately, your back yard doesn’t have too many walls for the sound to bounce off of.
That’s why you’ll want to install a system that offers directional audio. Usually consisting of six to eight satellite speakers, each one is calibrated to fire into the listening area for a robust experience. Not only will you love the way it sounds, but it won’t disturb your neighbors.
