Should you have a poolside stereo?
Town & Country Pool builders offer swimming pool stereo considerations
Having a themed swimming pool party will be even more fun, and set even more of an atmosphere if you have music that adds to it. Consider this: A Halloween party will benefit from a background of scary music. Won’t your Hawaiian luaua be more fun with some Hawaiian music? If you’re throwing a 50s theme party, image how much more fun it would be with the “right” music.
The swimming pool contractors from Town and Country Pool Builders work with pool owners to not only make certain their is the best it can be, but they also help you with all of your outdoor living space amenities — including a stereo system.
Here are some things to consider when you’re planning for your outdoor music system:
- Have a budget in mind before you start shopping.
- Will you want to connect your indoor stereo to speakers that are out of doors? You can either to that or you can invest in a weather proof stereo system that can be independent of your in house stereo. The decision is personal one. If you have a limited budget, though, connecting your outdoor speakers to the indoor receiver could save you money.
- The ideal speaker height should be about 10 feet from the ground as this will better distribute the sound. The ultimate placement for the speakers should be done after you’ve experimented for a bit. You want the music to be heard throughout, but you don’t want it to deafen any guests who may be sitting next to a speaker — it’s a delicate balancing act.
Adding a stereo system to your pool area is a great off-season project.
