Why Should I Hire a Professional for Outdoor Audio?

Table of Content

Outdoor audio should be easy enough with the availability of Bluetooth Speakers, right? Just bring it out, connect and crank it up!


Choose the professionals at Southern Lights Outdoor Lighting & Audio to not only design a high-performance system but, to also install and maintain it for years to come.

Outdoor audio poses challenges that are not found in indoor systems, Here’s why:

  • The number of speakers needed to adequately deliver good sound to your space differs dramatically from indoors due to the lack of walls. Walls allow indoor speakers to bounce off of and reflect the sound.
  • Indoor speakers can be moved around fairly easily, but trying to finesse outdoor speakers around obstacles. Structures, plants, shrubs, irrigation, and lighting fixtures, etc. can be difficult to work around. A professionally trained outdoor audio installer will know where to place the speakers for the best sound. They also know how to ensure the speakers blend in or virtually disappear from view.
  • Sun, wind, and water are not typically issues with indoor sound systems. But they sure are with outdoor audio! Cheap speakers and poorly executed wiring results in frequent replacements and repairs instead of acoustic enjoyment. A professional outdoor audio installer uses quality products built to last, and can maintain them for you to reduce the toll taken by the elements to ensure years of enjoyment!
  • A poorly designed sound system takes away enjoyment, instead of adding to it. If you can’t hear what’s playing, or can’t have a conversation because the volume is jacked up to compensate for a bad layout, you’re going to be frustrated and irritated, instead of pleased. Each area should be able to play different audio at the appropriate volume to ensure the right atmosphere for the activities going on. That’s why the design and layout are so important, and a professional installer is trained to do it right.

You went to a lot of effort and expense to create the perfect outdoor oasis.  The finishing touch is a great outdoor audio system.  Do it right, and you won’t have to do it over—call Southern Lights Outdoor Lighting and Audio and let us show you what awesome sounds like!
