Spending time and money creating a quality audio system in your home is a great way to make it a more enjoyable and entertaining place to live – but why limit yourself to only using the system when you are inside? Charlotte is known for having some beautiful weather and great evenings that are just begging for you to relax on the back patio and enjoy time with your friends and family. By using outdoor speakers as part of your overall home a/v system, you can bring the party outside and make sure your guests are entertained at all times.

Audio Video Charlotte is experienced at installing outdoor speakers for Charlotte-area homeowners, and we would be happy to bring that experience to your project as well. You want to make sure you get your outdoor speakers installed correctly right from the start so you don’t run into any unexpected problems later on down the line. Rather than trying to take on this job all on your own, trust the team here at Audio Video Charlotte to get it right the first time.

Following are a few common questions that we receive related to the installation of speakers in an outdoor setting. If you would like more detailed information specific to the project that you have in mind, feel free to contact us today!

What is different about outdoor speakers?

Speakers that are designated as ‘outdoor speakers’ are specifically designed to hold up better against conditions such as rain, heat, snow (those few times we get it) and more. Indoor speakers don’t have the durability or design features to last outside over the long run, and may even be dangerous to use in an outdoor setting. If you are going to design and install an outdoor entertainment area as part of your Charlotte a/v system, it is worth the money to purchase quality outdoor speakers.

How many speakers do I need?

This is a question that has to be answered on a case-by-case basis. It completely depends on how much area you want to cover with the audio from the speakers, and any other extenuating circumstances in the area. For example, if you live near a busy road, it might be necessary to add an additional speaker or two in order to provide enough power to hear the speakers over the din of the roadway. If you decide to contact Audio Video Charlotte regarding your outdoor audio project, we will be happy to analyze your space and determine the proper speaker layout to achieve quality performance.

Is it expensive to install outdoor speakers?

Again, the answer to this question is one that will vary for each individual project. It is possible to spend a large amount of money on an outdoor a/v installation project, but you can also add some outdoor speakers as part of your existing system for a moderate cost. The determining factor will be how elaborate of a system you want to install, and what kind of work will be needed in order to put the system in place.

Once you have outdoor speakers in place on your property, you are sure to wonder how and why you went so long without them. Contact Audio Video Charlotte today to discuss your ideas for an outdoor entertainment area, and we will be happy to work with you to make that vision come to life. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
