Rock or Relax Outside with an Outdoor Sound System
Take the Music with You Any Time of Year
We’re fortunate in the Houston area, as our Texas winters are mild. Summer may be over, but it’s still a great time to be outside. Spending time in your patio relaxing or entertaining doesn’t mean you have to leave the music inside.
If you’re particular about audio quality, you don’t want to settle for a portable Bluetooth speaker. You want a system that can move you when you want to party, and also one with detail and nuance when you want to relax in your patio with a good read and some background tunes.
If you’re ready for a high-quality outdoor sound system in the Woodlands, now is a great time to install it. Keep reading to learn more.
Purpose Built Outdoor Sound
With the right outdoor audio system, settling for inferior sound is a thing of the past. Your speakers can blend into your landscape seamlessly, or they can stand out if you prefer with artful modern designs like those from Coastal Source. You also won't have to worry about the Texas weather; high-quality outdoor speakers are made to withstand rain, heat, and cold, season after season.
You might be surprised at how good outdoor sound can be, rivaling a great indoor system. Inside, some spaces present challenges with large rooms, hard surface resonances, aesthetic considerations, and other details that need attention. Outdoors, with a professionally designed and installed system and no walls, often there is more flexibility in creating an enveloping sound with multiple speakers.
Our home automation solution, Crestron, also makes outdoor speakers that work seamlessly with their whole-home audio and video solutions. The Crestron Air line features spike-mounted landscape speakers with 4-inch and 6.5-inch drivers, and they are complemented by buried dual 8-inch subwoofers that provide low-end bass punch you can hear and feel, but not see. When configured correctly in your outdoor spaces, the result is seamless sound wherever you are; by your pool, in your patio, or your gardens.
Intuitive Control of All Sources
How do you feed music and other audio sources to your outdoor system? One of our favorite solutions is the Crestron Sonnex audio distribution system. Sonnex is a modular system that can scale up to the largest properties, as it can handle up to 74 zones of audio – enough for the largest estates. It features audiophile-grade amplifiers to power your outdoor speakers, and can even handle the latest high-resolution music sources.
Your outdoor system will have easy control through your choice of remote controls; options include smartphone control, dedicated touchscreens, or customized AV remotes. You can choose your music source, select what zones you want it to play, control volume in each zone, and pause and skip tracks. If you are looking to hear sound from a TV sports or news broadcast outdoors, the system makes it easy to route that outside too.
