6 Reasons to Install an Outdoor Speaker System This Summer

Outdoor Audio Jazzes Up Every Outside Activity

6 Reasons to Install an Outdoor Speaker System This Summer

In the past few months in our blog, we’ve delved into outdoor technology that can help you get the most out of your outdoor spaces. Sometimes, when it comes to outdoor projects, you need an impetus to pull the trigger. Something like outdoor speakers may not be something that you’ll want to do purely on its own. You might - but it’s more likely you will want it as part of a larger project.

Those larger projects are precisely the right time to consider an outdoor audio setup. As we covered last month, getting the right coverage and sound quality involves some planning. And when you've already got a project going in your outdoor spaces in Warren, it's the perfect time to integrate an outdoor speaker system.

If you’ve got any of the following projects going on this summer, call Bravo AV to help you integrate outdoor speakers for the sound system that will be the perfect topper.

Where Should You Put Your Outdoor TV?

Bravo AV Takes You Through the Options

Where Should You Put Your Outdoor TV?

The summer season is in full swing. In the past few months in this space, we’ve talked about all manner of ways to get more out of our New Jersey summers with outdoor technology. From outdoor sun shades to landscape lighting to outdoor TVs, you can make your outside space the summer entertainment zone for family and friends.

Like any good thing in life, careful planning goes a long way toward making the most of your outdoor technology investment. Last month we discussed some tips for making the most of your outdoor sound system, and this month we’d like to cover some of the ins and outs of outdoor TV installation options.

If you think you might be restricted with where you can place an outdoor TV (or multiple TVs), you’ll be happy to learn that with the right planning you can put one virtually anywhere you desire. After all, what you want to do is enjoy your outdoor space with a healthy dollop of entertainment, not just have a boring sitting area with a TV.

With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the placement options for outdoor TVs for your Mendham property. You might just say, “I didn’t know we could do that!”

Introduction to Screen Innovations' Outdoor Sun Shades: What to Know

Elevate Your Garden State Patio With Outdoor Motorized Shades

Introduction to Screen Innovations' Outdoor Sun Shades: What to Know

Last month, we talked about an outdoor amenity that you may not have thought about previously: outdoor motorized shades. We mentioned all the great benefits you can garner from adding this smart feature to your outdoor living spaces.

This month, we'd like to take a slightly deeper dive into Screen Innovations’ outdoor shades. We at Bravo AV feel that the company is very aptly named. Screen Innovations is a well-known and regarded name in home theater screens, and in fact, has created innovative screen materials that make it easy to use projectors even in well-lit rooms. The company decided to take their expertise in custom screen materials and light control to an area they felt needed it: partially covered patios and decks. And the results have been amazing, allowing customers to customize their outdoor living spaces in unique ways.

Let’s take a closer look at Screen Innovations’ outdoor sun shades, which may trigger novel ideas about what they can do for your patio spaces in Chatham or elsewhere in northern New Jersey.

4 Tips to Make the Most of Your Outdoor Speaker System

Here Are Our Tips to Enjoy Great Sound Outdoors This Summer

4 Tips to Make the Most of Your Outdoor Speaker System

If you do the right things indoors, it’s not too difficult to get excellent sound quality from your home audio system. Getting good quality speakers, a high-quality source component, and matching up your amplification with the speakers well are all part of getting there. There are some best practices for setting up your room as well.

When it comes to the outdoors, there are other factors. All of them are quite manageable with planning and design, but it's essential to understand the differences. The first one is the lack of walls to reflect sound. Sound bounces off walls, floors, and ceilings indoors, and that adds to the volume and the emphasis of frequencies like bass notes. Outside, walls and ceilings are generally missing. You may have a patio area that approximates a room, and wide-open spaces with hardscape like a pool, and gardens and landscaping.  Things will sound different in those diverse areas and surfaces. You also have to balance the volume you may want with not upsetting the neighbors.

So how do you get the sound quality you crave in your outdoor speaker system at your home in the Mendham area? As one of New Jersey’s premier audio and video integrators, Bravo AV has learned a few things about how to do outdoor audio right, and we’d like to share some of that with you. Read on to learn more.
