Multi Room Question - Answer
Where might I need whole-house audio?
Any room where you spend a lot of time. Examples would include: family room, study, master bedroom, master bath, kitchen, informal eating areas, and exercise areas.
Outside spaces such as decks, patios, lanais, gardens and pools.
Children's rooms, guest rooms, and public spaces such as foyers, formal dining rooms, and lavatories.
What performance level do I need in each room?
The rooms in which you spend the most time deserve the best audio (and video) performance.
Sometimes one room has an especially good audio system for listening to music or a high-performance home theater system for watching movies, sports, and television. The other rooms in the home may have lower performance levels, as desired.
Does one source supply every room, or can I choose between different sources in each room?
If you'd like one source to feed every room, then choose a single source system, as it will be simpler and more convenient for your needs.
If some rooms or groups of rooms require the flexibility of listening to different sources, then choose a multi-source system.
In new construction projects, the in-wall wiring is "roughed in" while the walls are open and before the wallboard (or whatever) is applied. We also generally mount brackets for the speakers and boxes for the keypads at this time. Your construction project then proceeds as the interior is finished. Later, we usually supply grills for any in-wall speakers to the painters so that they will perfectly match your walls. Then when the site is clean (and the dusty jobs are complete) we return to mount the speakers and keypads. Depending upon your needs, we may install the rest of the electronics at this time, or later. Last, we program the system and demonstrate how to use it. If you have questions about your system, or if you need some changes or additions, we are always happy to help.
