A whole home audio system means you can listen in just about any room. But if the space isn’t optimized for sound, you need to get creative with speaker placement.
First, distribution is the biggest factor in getting quality sound. You and your integrator need to ensure that you’re getting full coverage, even quality and no hot spots. That means placing speakers evenly throughout the room, in a similar manner to overhead lighting fixtures.
But just because speakers are scattered throughout a room doesn’t mean you have to look at big black boxes hanging off your ceiling or walls.
Hidden speakers are the way to go. Instead of blocky components taking up space in every room, hidden speakers are recessed into the ceiling, occupying spaces not much different from your lighting fixtures.
