5 Things to Consider When Planning an Outdoor Audio System

Summer is almost over, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a few weeks left to enjoy the beautiful weather. When it comes to the ultimate backyard accessory, an outdoor audio system definitely tops the list. Whether you are barbecuing, spending time with the kids or just relaxing in the sun, having an outdoor audio system can add a whole new amazing dimension to your backyard living space. When it comes to playing music, small audio systems just don’t cut it, because they aren’t built to take a number of factors, like ambient sound. Here are five things to consider when planning an outdoor audio system.

  1. Make sure you have a place to put the speakers. An outdoor audio system is great, but not if you don’t have a place to put the speakers. Putting them on the ground can cause unnecessary rumbling and interference and placing them on shaking siding or unsecured surfaces could damage your home and the speakers. So, before you start mapping your outdoor audio plan, make sure that you know exactly where each speaker will go. In fact, there are some great speakers on the market that blend right in with the scenery.
  2. Make sure that the speakers are of the highest quality. If you are going to install and outdoor audio system, you want to make sure that you invest in some really great speakers. Poor quality speakers won’t sound as great, especially outdoors and especially if there is a lot of ambient noise. When it comes down to it, there are also a number of environmental reasons for wanting the highest quality speakers. For instance, you don’t want your speakers to break just because of a little moisture – they should be waterproof after all.
  3. Understand that even the highest quality outdoor speakers can only stand so much direct exposure from sunlight, rain, sleet and snow. While outdoor speakers are waterproof and weather proof, it doesn’t mean that they can be submersed in water during a flood or sit in direct sunlight all summer long. Eventually, your speakers aren’t going to work as well. So, make sure that you find a place outside your home where your speakers can have at least a little protection.
  4. Always hire the professionals to install your outdoor audio system. If you are going to invest a good amount of money in your outdoor speakers, you want to hire the specialists to properly install them. For instance, Phoenix has excellent options when it comes to home entertainment set up and installation. Search “Phoenix unequaled home entertainment” online and you will find nothing but positive results recommending their services.
  5. Make sure that speakers offer the most optimal sound range. If you have a backyard lounge area, perhaps you should situate the speakers around your backyard furniture. If you have a barbecue, perhaps you should find a speaker near the grill. The last thing you want is to set up an outdoor sound system and then realize that you can’t hear anything. So, make sure you always have the right placement for optimal listening pleasure.
