Using racks as a showpiece


There are many reasons that people use rack enclosures now a days to help tidy up their automated world. While TVs continue to get thinner and more beautiful and soundbars are making surround sound more discreet, the components we connect to them, such as our Blu-ray players, cable boxes, game consoles etc...have largely remained dull black or silver boxes. And there are still all those ugly wires to manage! So now we have these neat and tidy solutions to all these issues, and putting them on display can have lots of great advantages as well!


Did you know that racks can also be an important part of a home theater set-up? So You just spent a lot of money on your new home theater system, but now you’re looking at a lot of “black boxes” and wondering where to put them all. Residential designer racks, sliding home theater cabinets and shelves, and cabinet frame inserts can all house your home theater components without detracting from your decor, and many can even be retrofitted to your existing furniture. 

Maybe you want to show off the components as part of the high-tech style of your new home theatre, essentially making your components and the rack part of your home’s furniture. 

Maybe you have young kids obsessed with pushing buttons. (What kids aren’t, after all?) Then you’ll want your components neatly tucked out of sight in a closet, or at least behind a cabinet with a safe Lexan door. That’s okay, too! However having an open concept show piece design tends to have more benefits.


Now a days with the growing technology demand, restaurants and bars are another prime place to find examples of rack enclosures. It is also another perfect example of using your rack set up as a show piece. Some restaurants and bars chose to hide there electronics racks  in a back room or closet while other choose to set up an eleborate and beautiful display for customers to enjoy!

Displaying your electronic rack can have several great benefits! When you have several consoles running all at once things can heat up very quickly and cause many issues. Having your rack system out in the open lets it breath and helps manage the heating issues. This option will also prolong the life span and function of your equipment.

The Reveal!

on Sunday, 14 April 2013. Posted in Knoxville Organized Wiring

A while back we showed you a project we were working on.  It is a perfect illustration that shows just because you purchased quality equipment, does not mean you get a quality system.  The most important decision you make in any project is choosing the professional subcontractor that will give you the greatest level of service before, during and after the sale.  That is what we at iSS strive to do everyday. 

In this particular case, the client had paid a large sum of money for good audio gear.  Naturally they assumed they would receive a professionally installed system that ran just as it was sold to them and give them years of enjoyment.  Unfortunately, this was not the case.  Instead they received a very poor level of service, a rats nest of wire and a system that never performed as it should.   

This project came to us through a referral from a long term client.  Initially we were only going to upgrade their system to a Sonos whole house system, but upon inspection of the wiring disaster, we advised that it would be in their best interest to clean up ALL the wiring and clearly lable all wires so that future service of the system will be efficient and POSSIBLE. 

Needless to say, once we cleaned up the wiring and turned over a very functional system to the client, we made another lifelong relationship.  We are continually trying to ensure that every project we walk away from, the client will have zero hesitation to call us back to perform another service for them.  That was exactly what happened in this case.

If you have a system that could use a little TLC, then we are exactly the company you need.  Call us for a free consultation.

Believe it or not, we took all these wires, sorted them, organized them, and concealed them.

Not surprisingly, many other issues the equipment was having disappeared. We assessed the other challenges and upgraded only what we had to leaving the customer satisfied with his investment for the first time ever. And to think, we were the third company on the job, yet the first to understand the importance of organized wiring.
