The foundation of many a home theater or entertainment room is the installation of in-ceiling or in-wall speakers that help to streamline the look of the room, while still allowing you to install every piece of equipment that you are interested in having. In fact, if you are planning a whole-house audio system for your home, these styles of speakers make it possible for you to include small rooms, foyers, and hallways.
The Benefits of In-Ceiling and In-Wall Speakers
Since these styles of speaker don’t stick out, homeowners can maintain the streamlined appearance of ceilings and walls. Unlike traditional speakers that you take out of the box and sit on the floor or table, these styles are less noticeable, take up less space, and allow you to use floor space for other purposes.
Advances in technology have created flush-mount speakers offering great acoustic quality that is comparable to and perhaps better than their counterparts, free-standing devices. There are even moisture-resistant styles, enabling installation in rooms with high moisture content such as basements, bathrooms, and laundry rooms.
Along with great sound quality, the versatility of styles makes it easy to incorporate them into any type of existing home décor. Plus, the visible portion of some styles can be painted to provide a better match to surrounding furnishings.
The Installation of In-Ceiling and In-Wall Speakers
The installation of different brands of in-ceiling and in-wall speakers is quite similar. However, variations in home construction, existing wiring, and personal preference can create the need to modify the process to fit the design and structure of the home. Most speakers designed for in-wall placement fit into standard construction quite easily.
To install the speakers properly, your electrician uses low voltage speaker cables, brackets, and input jacks designed for this purpose. Unless your home is still under construction, the electrician must drill into the home’s framing in order to run the low-voltage cabling. Typically, your electrician attempts to avoid coming into contact with existing electrical wiring to avoid complications, utilizing areas that do not currently have any running through them whenever possible.
The size of your speaker is largely determined by the room in which it is destined to go. If you aren’t sure what to get, consult with your Las Vegas electrician prior to making your purchase.
