The Best Speaker Setups for Whole House Audio

The Best Speaker Setups for Whole House Audio

Different rooms have different audio needs, and a “one size fits all” music system isn’t going to get you the same level of quality sound that you can enjoy when you take a more tailored approach. At DB Media Solutions, we have more than a decade of experience designing and implementing high-fidelity multi-room music systems. Based on that unique insight, here’s an overview of the best setups for speakers in each room of your Colleyville, Texas area home.

In Dedicated Listening Rooms

The speaker layout and type in a dedicated listening room should be different from your typical media room setup. Believe it or not, the type of music you most enjoy listening to will affect how you set up the space. In fact, the right room size for listening to classical music might not be the perfect fit for enjoying jazz.

The speakers are typically placed on one end of the room, all directed toward a chair or sofa where you would sit to enjoy the music. Acoustic treatments on the side walls ensure that the best sound possible is directed toward your ears.

In Common Areas

The kitchens, hallways, bathrooms, etc. are not places you would normally think to put a high-end audio system, but the beauty of multi-room music is that you are not limited to listening to music in one particular room. To achieve this unified sound across the entire home, you’ll want speakers strategically placed in high-traffic areas.

Airplay Straight from a Mobile Device

Want to play a song from your iTunes music account? With Savant, you can use Apple AirPlay to instantly start listening to your chosen music within your home—no cords or cables required. With AirPlay, you can continue to use your phone for other activities while the music is playing instead of leaving it docked somewhere as the official “music” phone.

Music Wherever You Are

One of the best things about a multi-room music setup is that you’re not restricted to enjoying music only in one area of your home. Sure, you can get away with adding speakers and stereos to each room and controlling them individually, but nothing beats the convenience of simply pulling up your phone as you walk from one area of your home to the next and having the music follow. The centralized access to all of your speakers and media makes listening to high-fidelity music an effortless process.

3 Aspects of a High-Quality Multi-Room Music System

Thinking about upgrading your Westlake, Texas home with a multi-room music system? It’s much simpler than you might think.

Optimized for Each Space

The acoustics in each room of your home will be different, and you need speakers that are versatile enough to accommodate the differences in room layout and furniture. To ensure a smooth, even sound as you walk through the house, speakers are carefully placed in specific locations. Speaker type is another concern with a multi-room music system. You’ll want a different style of speakers for your outdoor audio, for example, than you would for your kitchen. DB Media Solutions can help you design a system that has the right speakers and equipment in the right location throughout your home.

Hidden from View

Your home’s décor probably doesn’t accommodate bulky speakers or cluttered wires. It may be easy to hide speakers in a media room or bedroom, but what about the bathroom? The solution is to use in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, such as the Sonance Invisible Series, to completely hide the speakers. You get high-quality sound without having to deal with wires or looking at speakers.

Easy to Use

The best sound quality in the world isn’t going to do you much good if your music system is difficult to operate. When all of your music equipment is integrated into one seamless system controlled by a touchpad or your smartphone, it’s much easier to adjust volume, change the station, or pause music. You don’t have to walk to the other end of the house to turn on your music—instead, just pull up your phone and start enjoying the high fidelity audio wherever you are.
