Whole-House Multi-Room Speaker System
When you have built-in ceiling speakers, your music flows freely through the house. You can easily incorporate these during any renovation or new construction. There’s also the option to add wireless multi-room speakers if your home is already built.
Music comes to life with your streaming services like Spotify, Pandora or I Heart Radio. Play different songs in various rooms or share music across the house; there’s no limit to the configurations that you can set up. We show you how to use your tablet or smartphone as a remote control, or we can install in-wall controls.
Wireless Home Distributed Audio
Today’s wireless systems provide a lot of versatility to homeowners. Not only is the installation of the home network simple, but it takes less time than a standard whole-house stereo. With a speaker system connected wirelessly, you don’t have to worry about a bulky home theater receiver either.
Carry your wireless speaker from one room to another, when you desire extra sound. If you plan to move, this is the best way to ensure all of the equipment goes with you. We prefer wireless systems for existing homes because it’s an obvious solution, but it may also work for your new construction.
Hybrid Distributed Audio System
Another option is a hybrid setup, which utilizes some wireless components with in-ceiling or wall-mounted speakers. This system allows you to use a smartphone as the remote, but some of the hardware gets hidden in an equipment closet or utility room.
We customize the system to fit your home’s needs. If you want to run speaker wires to some rooms and use wireless in others, that’s totally manageable.
Wired Distributed Audio
In many commercial settings, wired setups are ideal. In-wall controls make it easy to manage but isn’t an installation you want to attempt on your own. It’s often required to have an electrician for some of the installation.
Some of our commercial applications allow for one amp to drive multiple speakers without complicated wiring. We can also adjust the volume controls to numerous areas for a customized experience. If you need to add onto the system later, your existing system can handle the expansion.
Benefits of Whole-House Audio
Before you consider distributing audio into your home, contemplate these benefits you receive.
1. Flawless music anywhere
The primary benefit to whole-house audio is that you can play your music in any space of your home. Once your speakers are installed, you receive even, high-quality sound from anywhere you choose. When you get home from the office, unwind with your favorite tunes. Simply press play and you can walk from the bedroom to the kitchen without missing one note.
This also helps when you entertain your family and friends. Allow your party guests to move freely from indoors to outdoors while still experiencing the music they enjoy. A fully integrated system connects the speakers from every room, so you don’t need separate systems.
2. Versatile sound
If you have kids who don’t want to listen to your music, you can configure the home audio to play different titles in various locations. Let mom listen to one song while she packs lunches in the kitchen, while the kids play their tunes before school.
3. Add multiple sources
You don’t have to use just one source when listening to music. Access your libraries on Amazon Music, iTunes, Spotify, Pandora or your personal computer. It’s simple to connect your speaker system to WiFi and Internet radio.
4. Maximum control
Technology is no longer complicated to use. With our simple control system, you can easily navigate the options, so the music plays faster. Use your mobile device or a central hub to play your favorite tunes. We have a variety of control systems that work for your setup. Operate every device with the help of your touch screen.
5. Space-saving designs reduce clutter
You don’t want to see piles of wires attached to your speaker system. We conceal all the equipment, including the speakers, to save room and match your décor. When the system is out of the way, you have more space for your family. Instead of focusing on the devices, everyone will be enjoying the music.
What type of system is best for you?
To determine the right setup for your house, some questions must be evaluated first.
1. How many rooms, zones and sources do you want in the system?
This is the primary consideration. If you want four separate areas, you have to factor in the additional speakers required for this configuration. We also have to evaluate the connections you have. With a two-room system, it’s not difficult to use a switch on the receiver. Multi-zone receivers can handle multiple sources and speakers.
Some sources include:
- Streaming media
- Cable TV
- Blu-ray player
- AM/FM tuner
- Satellite radio
2. Do you want a wired or wireless system?
The wireless system has come a long way. Technology allows high-definition sound quality without the need for wires. The flexibility offered with this setup reduces costs and makes installation easier. You don’t have to worry about moving wires or cables if you decide you want to place the speakers somewhere else.
Even with a wired network of speakers, you can still use wireless controls. These control all of your components from one central location.
3. Is your computer network installed?
If you already have a computer network wired into the house, then you likely have cables running to multiple zones. This saves a lot of time when connecting speakers into the network. With the help of an amplifier, you receive a flexible and powerful way to connect all of the audio.
4. What type of speakers do you want?
With options such as floor-standing, bookshelf or in-wall speakers available to you, there are plenty of ways to configure your audio systems. The size, location and style of your speakers make a difference what type of setup you require.
With in-ceiling and in-wall speakers, you have speakers that disappear into the surroundings. The most significant difference with this setup is that you require additional installation.
With a bookshelf or floor-standing speaker, you gain the advantage of having easy to move components, but you need to find the space in the room for them. Determining placement is critical for surround sound. Don’t forget to add in subwoofers, especially if you want the best performance and maximum bass reproduction.
