More than ever before, music and other audio media are an essential part of how we live. Our smartphones give us access to millions of songs and podcasts at the touch of a button, so you can listen to your favorite tracks or learn about a different topic whenever you want, wherever you want. And now with whole home audio technology you can take that unlimited access and apply it to your living space so you can play audio in any room directly from your smartphone.
If you have an upcoming Fort Collins remodeling project, you should definitely consider a whole home audio system to elevate your family’s media experience. Read on to learn about some of the most popular technologies for bringing sound to every room.
In-Wall Speakers and Subwoofers
The big trend in interior design for smart homes is melding your technology with the aesthetics of the house so that equipment doesn’t interrupt the flow of a space. In-wall speakers and subwoofers have made it possible to fill your home with rich high-performance audio while the technology stays out of sight. We recommend opting for a system that includes subwoofers because bass is the part of music that you feel as well as hear, and it really does make a big difference when you have subwoofers boosting those lower frequencies.
Installing in-wall speakers is a daunting task, but by working with a smart home company like Encore Sight & Sound, you benefit from our knowledge and experience that ensures your whole home audio system will function smoothly. We’ll design a sound system around the unique acoustics or each space, so you’ll gain maximum sound coverage and the clearest audio quality. Once the positions of speakers and subwoofers are decided upon, we install the technology, wire it to the larger home network, and program it so it can be accessed from your smart home control system.
The key to whole home audio is a media distribution system, which uses matrix amplifiers to connect individual sources to multiple outputs. Pick the source and the room and you can be listening to your favorite tracks in seconds. If you switch rooms, the audio can follow you.
Like the in-wall speakers, this helps minimize clutter because your audio sources are tucked away, sending out signals to rooms all over your home from a centralized location like a supply closet. This also makes maintenance much easier because all the technology is in one place.
