Installing outdoor audio can be a great new avenue of revenue for your company, especially if you are already involved in home audio or landscape installation! Just because it’s a new process, doesn’t mean it has to be difficult, especially when you are being backed by the solid manufacturing of TruAudio equipment. A great example of this is for those who are already in the outdoor lighting industry. The trenches and holes you have already dug for lighting can be used for adding outdoor sound. The wires are very similar too, using similar cabling as the lights. Sound and light installations are also similar in regards to having appropriate coverage throughout the backyard. The goal is to have complete coverage of the yard, without overexposure! Outdoor audio may look different than indoor audio, but the components are the same! The systems you know for indoors, are easily adapted for outdoor with TruAudio products. The method of installation may be different than indoor, but the configuration is the same!

Luxury Outdoor Sound is what TruAudio does best, and we continue to innovate in this field by focusing on keeping installation simple and creating quality products. Outdoor audio might seem daunting or complicated at first, but it’s actually one of our simplest installs! Our products are designed to withstand exterior elements like sun, water, and wind. We have a wide variety of speaker and subwoofer options so customization of the outdoor landscape sounds great and looks great. We have products for patios, yards, pools, recreational pads, gazebos, and more. Let’s make Outdoor Audio Simple! Here are 5 simple steps and 5 products that highlight the ease of installing outdoor audio:

1. Choose the right location for your outdoor audio system

Outdoor audio systems are a great way to enjoy music while spending time outdoors. But before you set up your new system, there are a few things to consider. First, you'll need to decide where to place the speakers. To get the best sound quality, it's important to choose a location that is free from obstacles like trees or bushes. Second, you'll need to take into account the size of your outdoor space. If you have a large backyard, you may want to consider investing in a TruAudio Landscape system that can be placed in a larger area. But if you have a smaller patio or deck, the TruAudio UltraScape Pro might be a better option.

2. Plan the layout of your audio system

When you are planning the layout of your audio system, it is important to consider how you will be using it. We offer a wide range of products that are specifically designed for different outdoor spaces. With our products being weatherproof and durable, it makes them ideal for use in any climate. In addition, we offer a variety of different speaker sizes, so you can find the perfect fit for your space. If you’re brand new to planning an outdoor layout, don’t worry! TruAudio has a free custom design service for you to take advantage of while you get used to learning the planning process. Designing your project placement accurately and thoroughly is an essential part of your outdoor system. TruAudio will help design and place the subwoofers and speakers around your yard to bring you the outdoor sound that works the best for the space provided!

3. Configure and install your audio settings

We specialize in making our speakers disappear, matching or camouflaging themselves into the landscape. Examples are Speakers that look like lights, and subs that go underground where the eyes cannot see them at all! We love the motto “heard but not seen.” Starting small with an UltraScape Pro plug-and-play system can be a great start because of the simplicity of installation and wiring. Once you’ve got that down, then moving onto the bigger systems will not only be easier but will come with bigger margins. We also have outdoor amplifier housing units. This means that if punching into the house makes you nervous, you can use other options to keep your components weatherproof, without worrying about compromising the inside of the house.

4. Enjoy your new outdoor home audio system!
