Over the years, we’ve worked with many businesses throughout Orange County to provide high-quality audio systems that help them bring their customer experiences to the next level. Working with a professional to complete your audio installations in Orange County, CA is critical—we’ve seen too many cases in which a person attempts a DIY job only to do some significant damage to their facilities, or to simply end up with inferior results.
To give you a sense of our professionalism and capabilities, here are some of the best practices we make a point to follow when putting together audio installations for our commercial clients.
Put an emphasis on the space
Any type of audio installation you put into your business should be designed specifically for your space. You’re going to have a hard time getting the best possible results with a speaker system you pluck off the shelf or cobble together over time. You should know the size, layout and shape of the building or room in which you’re working, which will in turn dictate how many speakers you need, the kind of speakers you need and where you need to place those speakers to make sure they deliver the highest quality of sound possible.
The type of establishment you have will also influence speaker placement and type. For example, you might put speakers above an entryway to attract the attention of shoppers entering or exiting, but might also keep speakers away from checkout areas, so cashiers will be able to more easily hold conversations with shoppers.
The type of audio system you use for your business will be influenced in large part based on how you plan to use that sound system. For example, restaurants are going to use their audio systems much differently than an office or a retail establishment. Even among restaurants, there can be quite a bit of variance—consider the difference between a sports bar and a fine dining spot.
You should think of all the factors that will affect your decision, list them out and plan carefully for what you need to do to adjust to those factors.
Never cheap out
While we completely understand that everyone has their own budget they’re working with, and it’s completely reasonable to want to stay within that budget, we also feel it’s important to emphasize that you very much get what you pay for when it comes to audio equipment. Low-quality equipment often has manufacturing flaws or lower-quality components. Don’t just go for the cheapest option in your price range—consider quality issues as well.
You should also avoid attempting to spread speakers out over a larger area than they’re intended to cover. This is just going to result in poor sound quality, even if you have good speakers.
These are just a few of the best practices we apply to all of our work when delivering commercial audio installations in Orange County, CA. To learn more about the various services and products we provide, contact Larson Lighting & Audio today.
