Recent advances in technology have provided us with amazing possibilities for bringing entertainment to your outdoor areas. The most basic way to provide outdoor entertainment is with one or more pairs of weather-resistant outdoor speakers. Better coverage, and a far better outdoor experience is provided when you have several sets of speakers operating at a low volume instead of one pair of speakers playing extremely loud.
One of our most popular outdoor speaker solutions is the new Sonance landscape speaker series. These speakers resemble small outdoor landscape lights. Sonance’s basic landscape package has eight speakers, and one subwoofer buried in the ground! The sound you get from these is amazing. The small satellites can be discretely placed to provide the best coverage, while the below ground subwoofer gives you incredible outdoor bass! Everyone who hears it cannot believe how good it sounds! Audio Visions South can come to your home with a sample system and set it up for a free test drive so you can hear how great these speakers sound outside your home.
Bowers and Wilkins Speakers
Why limit your musical enjoyment to the inside of your house? Bowers & Wilkins weatherproof range work perfectly on patios, as well as on boats and even wet rooms. Almost everything is more fun outdoors. So why not give your music a breath of fresh air with our weatherproof monitors: a range of hard-wearing speakers designed to bring superb quality sound to gardens, balconies, patios and poolsides. Equipped with woven glass fibre bass/midrange cones and Nautilus™ derived tweeters, all three monitors will deliver a crisp stereo image across a surprisingly wide area. Whatever the weather, you won’t want to come inside.
Outdoor Audio Control
Once you have great sound outdoors, how do you control it? That’s where home automation systems from Crestron, Niles, Sonos and SpeakerCraft come in. Each of these has wireless control options for complete management of your outdoor entertainment choices. Imagine sitting outside with your friends, listening to music from high school or college days. One of them asks if you can play something more recent, so you
hand him your two-way remote control and say he can choose the next music selection!
Outdoor video continues to gain in popularity. With LCD TV prices dropping under $1500 for a good-sized picture, many people are putting these on covered porches. (The plan is to replace the LCD in a few years
if the weather gets to it.) LCDs have an operating temperature range from about 4 degrees to 120 degrees Fahrenheit, so for our region of the country they are great.
The new Pantel series of LCD TVs represent the ultimate in outdoor television. These TVs are completely weather proof. Yes, rain can pour down on the set and has no effect. The Pantels are about twice as bright
as regular LCD sets, so you get a pretty good picture even in sunlight.
