For every exterior environment from courtyards and patios to entire residential estates and commercial areas for every scenario from the humble garden BBQ to pool parties and even events such as wedding parties and concerts.
We can provide totally scalable outdoor speaker systems that deliver perfectly even volume coverage and unbelievable sound quality throughout any size space. Aswell as other leading brands, A2B are experienced installers of Sonance systems, the undisputed leader in high fidelity sound for the great outdoors.
Sonance Landscape Series is regarded by many as the world’s best sounding outdoor audio system. Described by one critic as outdoor sound to “knock their socks off”, SLS provides jaw-dropping sonic performance from strategically placed satellite speakers and subwoofers that encompass the perimeter of the property directing the sound towards the listening areas. The result is breathtaking performance and a perfect blanket of sound. The additional benefit is that the music is contained in the areas where it’s wanted and not spilling out to disturb neighbours.
SLS satellite speakers feature all weather materials that deliver the sound quality that is typically experienced from a high-end Hi-Fi system. With three different models in the range, there is a speaker to suit any sized space and desired volume, from ambient background music to the level of a rock concert. The satellite speakers are constructed from a dark brown composite that won’t corrode or flake over time and is easily camouflaged amongst plants and foliage. The all-weather design ensures years of reliable service, while the colour-moulded construction resists chipping and scratches, even if accidentally hit with garden tools.
SLS utilises 10” and 12” below-ground subwoofers to deliver smooth and powerful bass response throughout an entire garden. The result is audiophile sound quality that fills the entire space with depth and detail. The subwoofers feature a below-ground design that keeps the cabinet out-of-sight. The only visible sign is the brown metal canopy that is discreetly hidden under plants or foliage. For courtyard applications, a Sonance hardscape subwoofer can be built into planter boxes or hidden under outdoor furniture, delivering the same big bass experience without having a negative visual impact. Once installed, a Sonance Landscape Series system is virtually invisible, with the satellite speakers and subwoofer hidden out of sight. High fidelity sound radiates from under plants and foliage, creating a space that sounds as good as it looks.
Bring a whole new level of atmosphere and ambience to backyard entertaining. The Sonarray SR1 system is a complete outdoor audio system that delivers amazing sound and perfectly-even volume levels for areas up to 2000 square feet (186 square meters). The system fully immerses outdoor spaces in perfectly balanced sound by strategically placing eight satellite speakers and a buried subwoofer around the perimeter while being hidden amongst the landscape. This optimised system approach results in breathtaking performance, and a perfect blanket of audio that does not disturb the neighbours. Sonance truly have raised the bar on affordable outdoor audio.
In typical outdoor audio installations a pair of speakers are placed in one location and usually on the same plane. The result can produce various undesirable effects:
Speaker placement in one location creates very loud areas near those speakers and little to no sound further away. This can
impact furniture arrangements and natural gathering areas.
It is easy to move in and out of the left and right channels and miss discrete information in the audio.
Audio can spill over to neighbouring properties creating unwanted disturbances.
Creating a system composed of satellite speakers and subwoofers envelops a space fully in clear and balanced sound giving you:
This approach is similar to great lighting that has no hot spots or dark spots, but rather provides smooth even coverage throughout the area.
The SONARRAY SR1 system uses small satellite speakers and a subwoofer perfectly arranged around the perimeter of the property.
The SR1 system is positioned not to spill into surrounding properties and disturb neighbours.
