The weather is warming up and Delawareans are spending more time outside. If you spend significant time in your backyard, either by yourself or with others, an outdoor sound system could be the perfect finishing touch for your yard. You can listen to music while entertaining friends, play music for your kids as they run around the backyard, or simply play your favorite playlist while you relax outside. If you are looking to add a soundtrack to your summer memories with an outdoor sound system, here are four tips to make researching and designing your sound system a success.
1. Specify Purpose
There are many ways in which to use an outdoor sound system. Are you using it to play music over a large area during parties? Are you designing a small open-air theatre? Can you see yourself using a sound system for multiple different situations? The demands you place on your sound system should be specific. Think about the area you would like to cover and the contexts in which you will use the sound system in order to narrow and direct your research and design.
2. Research Sound Design
Sound, like light, travels in a very specific way. Direction, range, and dampening of sound by objects like trees are all crucial factors when planning an outdoor sound system. Begin with some cursory research into sound design and then, keeping the purpose of your sound system in mind, survey your yard. Notice any obstacles for the sound to overcome, and try to locate any power outlets that may be of use.
3. Consider Which Inputs are Necessary
There is nothing worse than going to play a song from your phone at a party, then having to stop the music and figure out which cord goes where. Think about which devices you will likely play sound from (laptops, cell phones, etc.) and what types of cords they require. Many sound systems can connect wirelessly, but sound quality may suffer from a poor connection. Consulting a landscaping specialist can be helpful, as they can suggest equipment and design techniques to fit the requirements of your yard.
4. Pick good speakers
Not all speakers are created equal. If your backyard often experiences inclement weather, high winds, or other environmental hazards that can be detrimental to a sound system, talk with a professional at Sposato Irrigation. They can introduce you to different speaker options that will work with your yard. All-weather or weather-resistant speaker systems may be the best choice.
