The weather has been so warm lately that it almost feels like summer, and many Delawareans are looking forward to spending time outside with their loved ones. Music can add the perfect finishing touch to any outdoor gathering, and nothing completes some time by the pool or in the garden quite like your favorite songs. However, getting high-quality outdoor sound isn’t always easy. Designing outdoor sound systems that can withstand harsh weather while also projecting sound to the correct places requires specialized equipment and an expert touch. The professionals at Sposato Irrigation can help you avoid these common mistakes when designing and installing outdoor sound systems.
Mistake #1: Poor Sound Design
Sound design is a complex field — there’s a reason they hand out Oscars for it. Even something as simple as installing an outdoor sound system in a small backyard can be unexpectedly tricky. Design and installation professionals must consider the acoustics of your property. Because sound works differently around hard and soft surfaces (e.g., stonework and shrubs), it’s easy to accidentally throw sound towards your neighbors or struggle to create clear audio. Working with a team of experienced professionals is critical in creating an effective outdoor sound system.
Mistake #2: Not Using Equipment Rated for Outdoor Sound Systems
Sound quality isn’t the only area of concern when installing outdoor sound systems; safety is a massive factor whenever you combine electrical components and moisture from the outdoors. You must use equipment designed for outdoor use, and even then, routine maintenance is vital. Things like insects, wildlife, rain, ice, and sunlight can all cause damage to electronics, potentially making them unsafe to operate. Using the right equipment and having it maintained by a professional team is an essential step towards a safer outdoor sound system.
Mistake #3: Installing Things Yourself
Even after learning about common installation mistakes, some homeowners might be tempted to create their own outdoor sound systems. Still, even the most experienced DIY-ers should leave this job up to the professionals. There are all kinds of unexpected complications that most homeowners just aren’t equipped to handle. Anchoring speakers to homes and trees isn’t always straightforward, and the consequences of a poor DIY job can be drastic. Working with a contractor ensures that your sound system is safe and effective, and professional work makes repairs and maintenance easier down the line.
