Sound System types
When it comes to sound installation there are two main types of systems
- Background Sound System installs.
- Foreground Sound System installs.
Background Sound System
Background music systems by design are used to take the deathly silence out a room. In fact the volume should be very low and the audio near unintelligible.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking less is more, to achieve this it will require more speakers than a foreground system.
Typical background music installs include:
- Cafe / Restaurant
- waiting rooms
- Hotel Lobbies
Foreground Sound System
Unlike a background system, foreground systems are used to make music the focus of the room. Without a doubt, the music should be audible and enjoyable at a louder volume.
While you can useless speakers, they are generally bigger and more focal.
Foreground sound installations include:
- live music venues.
- Comedy Clubs.
- Event spaces.
- Night Clubs.
A wide range of speakers are available to suit any environments and budget also. They can be wall mounted, hung from the ceiling or flushed into a ceiling.
There are two designs of system to consider when doing sound installation design.
- Low impedance systems
- 100v line systems
The main difference between the two sound systems is down to how you wire the speakers back to the amplification.
Low impedance sound installation
Although it is possible to use low impedance speakers in your sound system install. It’s important to understand that it is more complex to wire a system using multiple speakers.
Special care must be used when installing the speakers to ensure the correct impedance is maintained for the amplifier.
100v Line Sound Installation
100v line sound systems unlike conventional low impedance systems are a lot simpler to design and install.
Because 100v line speakers are designed with step down transformers. This allows the speakers to match the desired impedance for the whole system. Subsequently making the system very scalable.
Because a commercial amplifier is going to be running up to 18hours a day, 7 days a week. It’s important to select a product that’s up to the job. Meaning not only less maintenance and servicing but also saving money.
Multi zone Sound Systems
Multi zone systems are extremely popular for commercial sound installations. Complete systems offer advanced features including:
- Source selectable wall plates.
- Microphone inputs
- DJ booth inputs.
You can design a sound system to take a single input or have multiple inputs that are selectable.
Popular audio inputs include:
- iPod / phone / tablet.
- Commercial Media player.
- Digital signage player.
- DJ Booth.
Voice Evacuation Systems
In crisis situations, people often panic. Importantly, people need clear instructions about what to do. At these times it can be the difference between life and death.
The best solution to combat these situations is to use clear, audible instructions. Thanks to evacuation systems, people without knowledge of their surroundings can be safely evacuated.
By installing voice evacuation systems in your building. In the event of an emergency pre recorded instructions will play to the effected area’s. Further more emergency services can interrupt to give live instructions.
