Domestic and Business Audio systems
come in all shapes and sizes, the most important thing is to match the right equipment to the venue. Hear at TaylorMade TV we have over 25 years experience in Audio Visual systems and installations, over this time we have amassed a large knowledge of domestic and commercial audio systems all of which are very different in equipment and installation required.
The domestic home audio installations mainly comprise of the Home Cinema 5.1 or 7.1 systems being the most popular, for us the fun in this is usually the challenge in having no wires showing installation with discrete in ceiling or in wall speakers giving great sound with minimal visibility.
Multi-room audio is also a highly popular installation, usually with discrete ceiling speakers in various room and a 4 zone or 8 zone multi room controller, these can give you a different choice of music sources in different zones at the same time. For example quite often we will have a TV in the kitchen or bedroom and we will use the sound from the TV or sky box that feeds it as an input, this way you can hear thew TV through the speakers, Sonos is another popular input as you can nicely control the music via an app on your iPad or Android Tablet.
The commercial audio systems are a lot more challenging and becomes a lot more about control and sound matching to the type of venue the system is going in, restaurants and eatery pubs are usually separated into zones of background music with inputs and volume controllers in each relevant zones, with club pubs larger speakers and subwoofers all worked out into zones and balanced with larger power amplifiers are required.
This is only a brief overview as there are lots of systems for lots of other commercial installations like Public Address, conference and meeting rooms with microphones and hearing aid loops to consider, needless to say the systems are worked out after consultation and site survey of the venue and it’s needs.
