Installing an outdoor sound system is a significant investment, and many homeowners want to take as many precautions as possible to protect their new speakers. How exactly can you protect your new sound system from rain, snow, and other hazards of the great outdoors in Delaware? Here are three tips to help you keep your outdoor sound system up and running for years to come.
Place Speakers in Sheltered Areas
Sun, wind, and rain are some of the biggest contributors of wear and tear for outdoor sound systems, so plan your layout accordingly. Whenever possible, install your speakers and other equipment in sheltered areas such as covered patios, gazebos, or cabanas. Make sure to install equipment away from pools, sprinklers, and water features. Keeping speakers up from the ground can be useful, as can aiming speakers downward. This helps prevent rain and sun damage. If your forecast shows extreme weather conditions, consider covering your fixtures to avoid excess water exposure. Checking the fit and tightness of your mounting brackets can help ensure that your speakers do not come crashing down during a storm or high winds.
Use the Right Equipment
Some pieces of equipment like remote controls are not meant for outdoor use. If your outdoor sound system incorporates pieces that are not designed for use outdoors, make sure to keep these items inside and away from pools, sprinklers, and other sources of moisture when in use. You must select the right equipment when designing and installing your outdoor sound system, as this will go a long way in terms of your system’s longevity. Using sound system components as directed by the manufacturer is always advised.
Hire Professionals for Installation and Maintenance
While it may seem tempting to purchase a sound system and install it yourself, installing an outdoor sound system is best left to the professionals. Sound design can be a challenge when landscaping is a factor, and improper installation of speakers and other elements can actually damage your property. The stakes for proper installation and maintenance are raised even further if you are mounting fixtures to trees.
