Installing an outdoor sound system is a significant investment, and many homeowners want to take the proper precautions to protect their new speakers. How exactly can you protect your new sound system from rain, snow, and other hazards of the great outdoors? Here are some tips to help you keep your outdoor sound system up and running for years to come.
Protect Your Speakers
Sun, wind, and rain are some of the biggest contributors to wear and tear for outdoor sound systems, so plan your design accordingly. Install your speakers and other equipment in sheltered areas such as covered patios, gazebos, or cabanas. Install equipment away from pools, sprinklers, and water features. Keep speakers up from the ground and aim them down to prevent rain and sun damage. If your area experiences extreme weather conditions, consider covering your fixtures to avoid excess water exposure. Checking the fit and tightness of your mounting brackets will ensure your speakers do not come crashing down during a strong storm.
Use the Proper Equipment
Some elements of your outdoor sound system, like remote controls, are not meant for outdoor use. If your sound system incorporates pieces not designed for use outdoors, ensure to keep these items inside and away from pools, ponds, and other water sources when in use. Selecting the right equipment when designing and installing your outdoor sound system is important, as this will go a long way in terms of your system’s lifespan. Using sound system components as directed by the manufacturer is always advised.
Trust the Professionals
While installing a sound system yourself may seem tempting, this job is best left to the professionals. Sound design can be challenging when landscaping is a factor, and improper installation of speakers and other elements can damage your property. The stakes for proper installation and maintenance are raised even further if you mount fixtures to trees.
