Why do you need outdoor speakers and their benefits.
In the past few months in our blog, we’ve delved into outdoor technology that can help you get the most out of your outdoor spaces. Sometimes, when it comes to outdoor projects, you need an impetus to pull the trigger. Something like outdoor speakers may not be something that you’ll want to do purely on its own. You might - but it’s more likely you will want it as part of a larger project. Those larger projects are precisely the right time to consider an outdoor audio setup. As we covered last month, getting the right coverage and sound quality involves some planning. And when you've already got a project going in your outdoor spaces in New Jersey, it's the perfect time to integrate an outdoor speaker system.
If you’ve got any of the following projects going on this summer, consider calling Bravo AV to help you integrate outdoor speakers for the sound system that will be the perfect topper. Here are 6 reasons you need an outdoor speaker system...
The New Pool
Bravo AV believes that every new pool deserves great audio. What could be more relaxing than floating in your pool at the height of a sunny August afternoon in New Jersey with your favorite tunes? Or amping up the pool party with an upbeat playlist? Depending on your pool style, rock speakers - typically gray or sandstone colored - can provide excellent sound around a pool area, are unaffected by any splashing, and look like part of the landscaping. Many other options are available too, including great speakers from Near and Origin Acoustics.
The New Patio
If you are updating your patio area, building a pergola and outdoor fireplace, or a fire pit, this is the perfect opportunity to incorporate an audio system. If walls are involved with an outdoor fireplace, surface-mounted speakers are an excellent option and can be painted to match the wall material. You can hide speakers in nearby planters that can hold real plants. If you want your speakers to be visible works of art, the sphere and cube designs from Architettura Sonora sound as beautiful as they look.
The Outdoor Kitchen Outdoor kitchens make a great space for hanging out outdoors, just like the indoor kitchen tends to be the hub of many homes. Build a bar area in yours, and your guests can enjoy watching you grill and if you’re lucky, even lend you a hand. Ceiling or surface speakers can provide the soundtrack for outdoor cooking, meals, and cocktails.
The Water Feature Perhaps you already have a pool but are adding a new water feature. Whether it’s an elegant marble fountain or a meandering stream, audio will complete the ambiance. Outdoor speaker options abound, from the rock models we mentioned earlier to stake-mounted satellite speakers with buried subwoofers. Planning the outdoor speakers along with the construction plans is the best way to get a fully custom look with the sound quality you’ll want.
The Big Event Whether it’s your daughter’s wedding reception, the big birthday whose number shall remain a secret, or your 25th wedding anniversary, an outdoor summer celebration is special and outdoor audio will make it a party to remember. We can coordinate all your speakers of different types to deliver seamless sound evenly across your event. The bonus is that you get to keep the system and enjoy it long after the big celebration comes to an end.
The Outdoor TV We hope we’ve convinced you of the many pleasures of outdoor TV in the past few months’ blog posts. We believe outdoor TV should be paired with excellent audio as well, just like in a home theater. While outdoor TV models from brands like Seura have excellent sounding soundbars, you can spread the sound from your TVs across the outdoor area with additional amplifiers and speakers. When you're outside, you might have a baseball or early season football game on, and you may be doing other things. You don't have to miss a play when the sound is piped through your outdoor system, and it's even better for watch parties. We’ll make it all incredibly intuitive to control with smart home automation. Call Bravo AV when you start planning any of these projects in your Warren home. We’ll make sure you have the perfect outdoor speaker system that will deliver years of aural pleasure.
