Expand Your Entertainment with Outdoor Audio Video
Take Your Media Outside the Home with These Outdoor AV Solutions
You’re accustomed to having easy access to media from anywhere in your home, and your outdoor spaces should be no exception. You want to listen to music when you’re relaxing outside or having people over for a summer barbecue, and gatherings for summer sports events are more enjoyable when people can watch from an open-air patio and take in the beautiful Tennessee weather.
Outdoor audio video presents installation challenges that can make it an intimidating endeavor for homeowners, but the experts at Symspire have helped residents of Thompson’s Station and throughout the state of Tennessee expand their entertainment systems for years.
Read on to learn the best practices for outdoor audio video to ensure that you have a reliable, long-lasting system that meets your demands while withstanding the elements.
Use Equipment Optimized for Outdoor Use
Indoor TVs and speakers aren’t designed for outdoor use, and you risk doing significant damage to this equipment if it is exposed to the elements. Indoor models may be less expensive, but many warranties are void after outdoor use, so you could easily end up spending more money on repairs and replacement.
For the best outdoor home entertainment, you need technology built for that setting. SunBriteTV specializes in outdoor televisions that adjust for changing ambient light and are built to withstand extreme weather conditions. They offer different models depending on whether the area is sunny, shaded, or partially shaded, and they are all reinforced to protect the technology from heat, cold, bugs, dust, and other natural elements.
Klipsch is a leading name in outdoor speakers, offering high-fidelity sound with all-weather durability. These sleek speakers enrich the design of your existing landscape, but if you prefer to keep them out of sight, they can easily be tucked away.
Location, Location, Location
The placement of your outdoor TV and speakers has a massive impact on their performance. For TVs, you want to find an area that will provide the best visibility in relation to the brightness levels the TV can deliver.
Most outdoor spaces don’t have walls to reflect and contain sound, and there’s ambient background noise that affects the acoustics of outdoor audio. This requires careful placement of your speakers to make sure that you’re not losing any sound quality.
You might think that higher volume will fill a larger space, but you sacrifice quality and can potentially harm your speakers when pushing them to the limits. The solution here is adding more speakers, which will give you a fuller sound and will maintain the integrity of the equipment for longer.

Opt for a Wired Set-Up over Wireless
Wireless technology is all the rage right now, but when it comes to stationary equipment, a wired set-up will give you the best performance. You won’t be moving your outdoor TV or speakers, so there’s no need to use a wireless system that isn’t as reliable.
We’ll make sure that all your wiring is kept out of sight and protected from the elements, so you won’t have to worry about cracking and UV damage.
