Whole house sound systems are very popular in homes of all shapes and sizes. More and more people want to experience having music flow through their rooms like light from the windows or cool air from the vents. This is why homeowners invest in quality whole house sound systems installation. It is enticing to play one song in the family room, another in the bedroom, or play the same music throughout the house.
If you want to get music in every room in your home, there are a lot of ways to go about it. In fact, there are a surprising number of options on the market for this niche. It is easy to incorporate in-wall and ceiling speakers when you are building or renovating a home. Some choose to have a central component that sends music from selected sources — CD, turntable, radio, etc. — to different rooms in the house. This set-up can send either line-level signals to amplifiers in each room, or have built-in amplifiers and tuners. Meanwhile, in an existing home, it is much easier to use wireless multi-room speakers where you can use your smartphone or tablet as remote control. The latter option of installing wired and wireless connections that enable you to control your sound system from anywhere in your home is the more popular option these days. Still, depending on what you want, an existing receiver can be used as the center hub, or a completely dedicated whole house sound system can be installed. Of course, more sophisticated network cabling would require professional installation.
It is understandable to feel overwhelmed when installing a whole house sound system. Here are some tips to help you out:
- Consider the rooms in your house that you want music in, as well as the kind of music and speakers that you want in each one.
- Think about whether or not you want to simultaneously play different music in different rooms.
- Decide if you want to use a wireless device such as a smartphone or tablet as your system controller.
- Consult professionals who provide custom audio installation services that fit your needs to make your whole house sound system vision a reality.
