Make All Your Outside Time an Experience

With comfortable temperatures in the 70s and 80s, spring in Georgia is a wonderful time for all things outdoors. Whether it’s a long bike ride on the Silver Comet Trail, a day at Stone Mountain Park, or just enjoying the sunshine and fresh air in your own backyard, it’s a perfect time to play before the arrival of summer heat. But then it’s time to swim, right?

Blanket Your Outdoors with Sweet Music

While Alys Beach is a great place to be all year round, it’s hard to beat springtime. The spring breakers may descend into the area, but it’s short-lived. The Panhandle spring presents perfect Florida weather for the outdoor lifestyle, with warm days and comfortably cool nights. 

What could be better than enjoying glorious spring weather? Adding a soundtrack to set the ambiance, whether it's lounging by the pool or enjoying evening cocktails on the patio. But you don't want to settle for mediocre audio outside. You want outdoor sound that seems to waft up from your landscape all around you, letting you enjoy the music but without it being too loud or too soft. One of the best ways to do this is with a Sonance outdoor sound system. Read more about the various options below!

A Little Planning Goes a Long Way

Is good outdoor sound just a function of buying the right equipment? Yes and no. Quality speakers and amplifiers are always a key to superior sound, but outdoors you must take a few things under consideration. 

First, there are no walls and ceilings to reflect sound. That means you need more power to get satisfying sound levels outside – not to mention overcoming other ambient sounds. Second, you want good sound but don't want to attract the ire of your neighbors when you want to hear your music. And there's more. Here are four helpful tips for planning an outdoor sound system for your Miramar Beach, FL home.

No matter what you’re considering for your home, you’re in the area to take advantage of the weather and outdoor lifestyle. Outdoor enhancements like kitchens, sitting areas, pools, and water features can be enjoyed year-round in Florida, making them a great investment in your home and lifestyle.

Coastal Source Delivers Potent, Long-Lasting Audio in the Florida Climate

Florida weather can be tough on anything not inside air conditioning. The high humidity rusts bikes in garages and rots wood fences, and the salty air of the ocean can corrode metals and dull paint. At the same time, living in WaterSound means enjoying an outdoor lifestyle year-round, so you’re going to have things outside. 

One of the best additions you could make to maximize the enjoyment of your outside spaces is outdoor audio. An outdoor sound system can relax you for an afternoon of sunning and swimming in the pool, grilling dinner, or just enjoying a book on your lounge on a bright winter day. But can you get an outdoor sound system that stands up to the heat, humidity, and salt of the Florida 30A coast? You can with Coastal Source outdoor audio, a sound system made for its very name.

Your Music Can Sound As Good – Or Even Better - Outdoors

Spring is here in the Atlanta area.  While our winters are fairly mild, we all look forward to spending time outdoors.  In the South, you can beat the humid heat on a lazy Sunday by floating or frolicking in the pool.  Or perhaps you just like relaxing on a chaise, in the shade, with a good book and a sweet iced tea. Think that sounds enjoyable? Just add music to elevate this experience to the mental retreat we all need now.

We originally wrote this popular blog article during a much more pleasant time, the summer of 2018, before anyone talked of this new coronavirus. The current COVID-19 pandemic, which has afflicted much of Northwest Georgia, casts a shadow over even this outdoor merriment. However, if we’ve learned anything these past few weeks, it’s how therapeutic our outdoor time can be after being cooped up indoors all day.

Whether you’re spending time chilling with pets and family on your patio or getting some exercise in your pool, everything feels more enjoyable when you add music. However, simply adding any speakers you find on Amazon Prime isn’t enough. You’ll need Atlanta’s premier AV installer to help you choose and install the best speakers for your patios, yards and pools.

Create an Outdoor Listening Room

Do you have a favorite listening room in your house? The place where you have your turntable, CD player, or high-resolution music player pumping out high-octane music on your tower speakers? When you step out on your patio, don’t you miss that setup?

 

You can open the windows and blast the sound outside, but we don’t suggest that. There’s a better, easier, and gentler way to get your groove on while you’re outside in Dunwoody with an outdoor speaker system.

 

Outdoor speakers come in many styles and types for outdoor use. There are wall-mounted varieties, speakers that look like rocks to hide in plain sight in your gardens, buried subwoofers, bollards, and more. There has never been a better selection to get excellent sound outdoors, whether you have a small patio off of your high rise or a multi-acre spread.

 

One of the most popular outdoor speakers is the in-ceiling type. These are perfect for covered patio areas and can offer the kind of sound quality you have in your indoor listening room. Granted, you may not be able to achieve the same elevated audio you enjoy with your high-fidelity system, but we guarantee you can have an outdoor audio system that will provide hours of musical pleasure.
