Bring the Entertainment Outside This Spring
TAGS: Outdoor Speakers | Outdoor TV | Sonance | Sonos | Whole Home Audio
We know it’s cold and wet this winter in Tennessee, but warmer spring weather is right around the corner. We’re all looking forward to spending more time outdoors. Relaxing in the patio, planting new annuals, and lots of other outside activities beckon to us soon. Since we’re blessed with a relatively mild climate in Nashville, how about bringing some of our audio-video entertainment outdoors for these activities?
Bringing music and video entertainment outside is a great way to maximize the enjoyment of your outdoor spaces. If you have an outdoor kitchen, imagine grilling to great tunes. Or how about inviting friends over to catch the upcoming March Madness basketball outside on the patio with your favorite drinks and food? It’s all possible with an outdoor audio-video setup, and it can be an extension of your current installation or something totally independent.

One of our latest projects that we completed is an amazing outdoor HiFi audio system coupled with a 60" TV on an articulating wall mount so they can view the TV on their porch or while they're in the pool or Jaccuzzi! They also have Smart Device control over their audio system and the cameras monitoring the backyard area. So while you're lounging, and you want to change what you're listening to you can simply pick up your phone and change it! It also enables you to monitor your kids playing from anywhere you're at!
All this capability is made possible utilizing Sonance's SLS High Fidelity outdoor audio system. The system is described as a, "Scalable outdoor speaker system that delivers perfectly-even coverage and unbelievable sound quality throughout any sized space. Described by one critic as outdoor sound to “knock their socks off”, SLS provides jaw-dropping sonic performance from small satellite speakers and below-ground subwoofers that are hidden completely out of sight amongst plants and under foliage." We utilized HEOS AMP's and LINK's, which enable you to stream various music sources seamlessly and intuitively, such as HiFi service Tidal, Pandora, XMSirius, Spotify, Rhapsody, Tunein, your phone, local computer or a USB drive or hard drive and those are just the most popular ones, for the audio control. The surveillance is handled by SpyClops surveillance. While the video side utilizes Samsung, Vizio and Celerity fiber optic HDMI cables.
