The Best Approach to a Whole Home Audio Installation
You don’t have to Stick with Just the Basics
If you’ve started looking into upgrading your home’s audio, you’ve likely realized that there are a lot of options. Which brand should you choose? Should you do a wired system or go wireless? Should you go for a DIY installation or bring in an audio professional?
We’re here to help. We’ve been installing whole home audio systems in the greater Nashville, Tennessee area for decades. In that time, we’ve learned a thing or two that you should know when getting started on your audio system!

The Wireless Misconception
Wireless audio means no wires at all, right? Not quite.
Your speaker still has a power cord (and if it’s a soundbar, an optical audio cable to connect it to the TV). You may not have considered this when you decided on whole house audio, and now you’re stuck with cords that are visible or perhaps even too short to reach outlets. Not ideal!
That doesn’t mean that you can’t choose a wireless system! This is where a professional installation comes into play. We can hide away all the cords completely, plus make sure the system has the solid home network it needs to stream music reliably in every area of your home – whether it’s wired or wireless!
Get the Best Layout Possible
If you want the best audio experience with your stereo system, there are a few tips and tricks that will boost the audio performance.
The first step is to find the best layout for the specific room. The size and shape of the room will dictate not only the placement of the speakers, but what specific mix of audio products you need in order to get the fully immersive music experience.
For our whole home audio installations, we always do a full assessment of the space before recommending specific products – that way, we can be sure you’re going to get the best setup for your home.
Connect Your Stereo System to Other Technology
One thing that’s hard to achieve with a DIY setup is simplifying the management of your audio system. For homes with a lot of DIY smart devices, you might have separate apps or remotes for the TV, speakers, Blu-ray player, smart lights, window shades, thermostat, and more.
So when you want to sit down and enjoy your music, you have to run through app after app after app just trying to get the right playlist or streaming service!
Fortunately, there’s a better way. By connecting your audio system with a universal remote, you can simplify the way you use your smart technology.
One central app controls everything: your lights, climate, audio, video, and more. We can even set up predefined scenes that create the perfect environment for different activities at the press of a single button.
So when you want to entertain, just select the “Party” option. Instantly, the thermostat will lower, the lights will brighten, the lights will dim, and your favorite pop music will start playing throughout your home!
