Speakers are actually relatively simple devices. You should understand at least the basics of how speakers work before incorporating them. Basically, you have an enclosure (typically a box) into which speaker drivers are attached. The drivers are the round elements that many people call the speakers (they’re not). Speaker drivers look like cones or horns (or even ribbons or domes), and in fact, the large surface area of the drivers is called the cone or diaphragm.These surfaces move back and forth to make the sound. If you have ever pulled the front screen off your speakers or have seen speakers without their front grille on, you’ve seen speaker drivers au naturelle.

 Let's start with 3 main types: Installed, Free standing, and Wireless

Installed: These are speakers such as "in-ceiling", "In-wall", "Cabinet", & even "Landscape" speakers. There are several benefits to these types of speakers, like taking up no floor space & no stands. This makes perfect for any sized room and works especially well in smaller spaces. They can also provide a higher quality of audio. The bass and treble effects of in-ceiling speakers are better than regular speakers and this is another reason for its popularity.

The wires can be concealed, which reduces the chances of accidents. Parents no longer have to worry about their kids tripping on the wires or pulling them by accident. These concealed wires also make the room clutter-free. This is why many users prefer to have the speakers installed.

Free-Standing: The beauty of freestanding speakers is that they come in many styles and sizes - from ultra-compact cubes & rectangular bookshelf models to the floor-standing towers. Styles and finishes range from plain-Jane boxes to sculpted cabinets with finishes that run from black vinyl or faux woodgrain to furniture-grade wood veneer or black lacquer polished to perfection.

So in addition to selecting speakers that physically fit the room, you can choose models that complement the décor or become a focal point. And whether we're talking about floor-standing towers or small- to medium-size speakers on a shelf or stand, you can move them around to optimize sound quality!

Wireless: 

For every music lover, who would want to listen to music on the go, then the portable speakers are a must have for you. These portable speakers don’t have much wiring like ordinary speakers would. One may have to connect a cord to a phone in order to play them, but with most portable Bluetooth speakers, one can simply connect their device via Bluetooth to the speaker and the songs will play. The portable Bluetooth speakers are light in weight and come in variety of sizes. 

The portable speakers operating on the Bluetooth can come in great handy. Let’s say you are at a picnic on a beach with friends and there is no source of electricity or music system. Here the portable Bluetooth speakers can come in handy because they are operated through battery and you can connect the speakers with Bluetooth and enjoy music with your friends! The sounds is simply amazing a clear as well!

The Benefits of using One Company for Custom Home Installations

on Wednesday, 13 May 2015.

With so many different companies offering security systems, home automation, sound, lighting control, and custom home theaters...it can all be a little overwhelming when you begin your search for an installer.

You may have found someone to do the audio, but you still need someone to do security cameras. Or maybe you found a company that does media rooms, but you still need to get a fire protection system. You will probably feel like you are getting pulled in so many directions that you will want to abandon your projects altogether.

Fortunately, by selecting one company that is licensed and trained to do all of the above home upgrades, you will be saving yourself time, money, and lots of headaches for several reasons.

Time

In this day and age time really is a precious resource. When you choose one company that is experienced in all aspects of audio, sound, lighting, and security; then the help you need is only one call away. You also only have to worry about setting up one appointment.

Money

You may have heard that buying in bulk or package deals can save you money. The same is true for all your customized home technology needs. Hiring individual companies for various services will add up fast. Before you know it you will be covered up in invoices and fees. By using one company you will not only save money, but also saves that headache of remembering to pay multiple bills each month.

Experience

Any company that can specialize in multiple aspects of home automation, fire protection, lighting and security is certain to have more knowledge and a better understanding of whole house or commercial property installations. Other installers might get snagged up if they get out of their area of expertise, but installers that have experience in all aspects can sail on through.

This is especially important in troubleshooting. Perhaps your audio system has malfunctioned and you call the company that installed it, but they tell you the company that just did the whole house WiFi must have changed a setting on the system and to call them. This is not a situation you want to find yourself in.
