Excellent Quality on a Budget
This home is about 10,000sq. ft. of quality. The home builder we partnered with was a developer who wanted a statement home on the Central Coast. We were asked to provide music and video throughout the home as well as telephone, data and some type of internet on a tight budget.
The system we chose was Crestron which would allow him to centralize all the equipment in the Family Room and then send the audio and/or video to whatever rooms he wanted. In each room there was a video monitor and in-wall or ceiling speakers. To keep the costs down, we used Sonance speakers throughout, which provide a lot of performance for the dollar. In each room we had a remote or in-wall touchpanel to control the system. We used the Lutron Radio Ra system for lighting control, which allowed us to control the light switches wirelessly.
The outside pool area was where he wanted the best sound, so we mounted 8 larger commercial speakers powered by a 1200w amp in the planters! It turned out fantastic.
