Choosing Speakers for Your Whole House Audio System

Choosing Speakers for Your Whole House Audio System

Have you ever noticed how much happier you feel when there’s music on? Picture the following two scenarios: First, you walk into a restaurant, and it’s completely silent besides the clatter of silverware and buzz of lights above. Now imagine a restaurant with your favorite song lightly pulsing through every room, just loud enough to enjoy while still able to chat. Suddenly, you feel like relaxing back in your seat with a drink for hours—or perhaps even dancing.

Your home will also come alive with a whole house audio system. Whether you prefer Billie Holiday, Billy Joel, or Billie Eilish, music will follow you from room to room, so you won’t have to stay wherever one speaker is located. But what speakers should you use to build a whole-house audio system? We share different speaker models to help you find the right choice for your Austin, TX, house below.

In-Wall and In-Ceiling Speakers

The most elegant and minimalistic approach to whole home audio is the in-wall or in-ceiling speaker. You can enjoy high-quality background music at all hours without the bulky appearance of technology. Wires are hidden within the walls, and speaker grilles can even be painted to further blend into your décor.

Bookshelf Speakers

Bookshelf speakers are certainly more visible than in-wall models, but they offer generally higher sound quality. They’re still easy to rearrange and move and are small enough to place on, yes, a bookshelf, but also tables and countertops.

Spend More Time in Fresh Air with Outdoor Audio Video

Spend More Time in Fresh Air with Outdoor Audio Video

We spend a lot of our time indoors. Many of us work in front of computer screens under fluorescent lights, only to return home to our living rooms and TVs. But exposure to fresh air and nature has been proven to lower stress, reduce inflammation, and lessen fatigue. Enjoying time outdoors has also proven to lower anxiety and supplement treatments of depression.

While you may want to spend more time in the sun, that doesn’t mean you need to skip watching a Longhorns game or cancel dinner plans to go on a hike. Now that central Texas weather is finally cooler than 90 degrees, why not take your entertainment outdoors?

Outdoor audio video solutions allow you to share music and watch your favorite shows with weatherproof technology. If you’d like to swap your living room for the patio in your Tarrytown house, continue reading to learn how below.

Adding Outdoor Speakers  

Just like with an indoor multi-room audio system, your outdoor speakers can synchronize to play the same music across your yard, and even connect to the music playing indoors. You’ll need a receiver or distribution amplifier to power speakers and connect them to your audio sources. Stereo setups sometime don’t sound great in a large property because speakers may be spaced too widely, so you may want speakers that play both left and right channels in one. Use stereo-input speakers with both left and right connections, or amps that combine both to send mono signals to standard speakers. Cables to your outdoor devices can be buried below-ground for a clean landscape appearance but are best run through a hard-plastic conduit to protect from animals and accidental damage from garden tools.
