How to Bring Immersive, Aesthetically-Pleasing Audio to Your Home 

Are you ready for a superior audio experience? When you play music, do you want it to feel like an intimate concert in your living room? Or do you want to watch movies and feel completely immersed in the sound, like you’ve been transported into the world of the film? 

Many people make do with small portable speakers or built-in TV audio. But not everyone. There are those of us who value high-quality audio and the ability to feel every musical detail or cinematic moment. When you own a high-quality speaker system, you notice musical and movie elements that you never have before. 

But high-end audio systems can be daunting. There are many components and moving parts to consider—receivers, pre-amps, DACs, and wiring, to start. Luckily, the BRAVAS team in Marco Island, FL, is here to help. Let’s dive into high-end audio with some FAQs below!

Can My Audio System Be Customized to Match My House? 

Yes! Whether we’re building a listening room, whole-home audio setup, or home theater, we work with various high-end brands like James Loudspeaker, Harman, Origin Acoustics, and more that offer customizable speaker options. You can select materials or colors that complement your home, so the audio equipment is never an eyesore.  

Plus, we also install in-wall and in-ceiling speakers that blend seamlessly into your home interiors. You’ll still enjoy high-fidelity sound without detracting from existing aesthetics or layouts.

Can I Integrate High-End Audio with Other Smart Home Automation Features?

Yes! Even passive speakers (speakers that plug into an amplifier, not the wall) can be integrated into home automation systems like Savant, Crestron, and Elan. By doing this, you can remotely control your home audio system and manage it alongside lights, motorized shades, thermostats, and video. Smart home integration is especially useful for whole-home audio systems and home theaters, simplifying how you access home entertainment. 

What Speakers Do I Need for a Home Theater? 

Most standard home theaters feature about six speakers— a center channel speaker, two front left/right speakers, two left/right speakers on the sides, and a subwoofer. The center speaker delivers most movie dialogue and should be installed above, below, or behind your theater screen. The front left/right speakers should flank the projection screen or TV, angled towards seating. 

The subwoofer should be placed on the floor by a wall—but not pressed up against it. The subwoofer is the powerhouse of your theater, delivering the low, rumbling sound essential for cinematic sensations. For an even more immersive system, you can expand with two rear left/right speakers and even upward-firing Dolby Atmos speakers that will envelop you in a dome of audio. 

Can Someone Install This for Me? 

Yes! BRAVAS designs and installs luxury home audio systems for homeowners across the country. Whether you desire hidden speakers for multi-room audio, landscape speakers in the outdoors, or a professional surround sound system, BRAVAS has you covered.
