OUTDOOR AUDIO SYSTEMS AS HOT AS YOUR NEXT POOL PARTY!
With record sales in high-end grills and hot tubs, and the growth in outdoor kitchens in recent years, outdoor audio systems are following the trend and becoming part of this premium outdoor living space. Outdoor audio systems are the third thing to be purchased for an outdoor entertainment area right behind a grill and living room furniture or a hot tub.
Smarthome & Theater Systems have been working with clients for years designing outdoor audio system. When assessing our client’s needs, we recommend one of the following options depending on the size of the outdoor space, the activities in the space and how integrated the homeowner would like to have their outdoor audio be compared to the rest of their home
THE “DISNEY WORLD” EXPERIENCE:
Picture being in your outdoor space ~ you are grilling on the patio, the kids are playing in the yard and you have guests using the hot tub and the pool. Lots of activity ~ and the music from the house is blaring so the kids can hear it, but you can’t even talk to your guests or hear yourself think!
Now, if there were a way to play music where it surrounds you, coming from what seems like every direction but at a modest, background volume, wouldn’t that make your party more enjoyable for everyone? The technology has been around for a long time finding its original use in large retail stores and amusement parks. More recently it has been adopted by homeowners to solve an age old problem of covering a large outdoor space, everywhere, with music. Smarthome installs several outdoor speakers around and in the landscape instead of the old way; just one stereo pair. Today’s speakers don’t only sound great, they look great too. With styles that vary from rock speakers that really look like rock to speakers that resemble the ground lights that are probably already installed in your landscape.
THE STEREO PAIR STILL FINDS USE OUTSIDE
Sometimes we don’t have the space or the need for speakers in every corner of our yard. Some projects have a specific listening area, a patio or deck with furniture. As long as the music can cover the area and not blast you out of it, two speakers may just be the answer.
A few choices of Style
Outdoor rock speakers make for a great addition to your outdoor speaker system because they camouflage in your garden and sound just as great. Your guests would be pleasantly entertained with high quality music from your garden and backyard speakers. It’s no surprise that rock speakers are becoming a popular addition to the home and there are tons of outdoor rock speakers to choose from.
High Performance Outdoor Planters are the perfect solutions when you need sound outdoors and refuse to compromise on audio quality or style. Most serve as real planters also. Water resistant, a space for soil and protection for the speaker from the elements, planter speakers make the perfect solution for certain design decors. The all-weather components withstand pretty much anything Mother Nature can dish out and go right on blasting music with superior performance.
WHEN YOUR PARTY IS ON THE GO
If your outdoor entertaining takes you to the beach, park, on a boat, tailgating and to the top of mountains, then you may want to consider a portable speaker - A weather-resistant, wireless speaker that unleashes great sound throughout your outdoor entertaining space. Our portable speakers contain a battery that will power the unit for 20 hours at a modest volume and 10 hours on full blast. We’ve recommended a wireless, portable speaker when the client wants to grab it from the pool house, place it outside and turn it on. Sometimes dad wants it next to the grill, other times the kids want it near the pool while hanging out with friends. And when the party leaves the house and moves to the marina, boatside or a tailgate before the game, we guarantee you will love how our portable solution sounds.
