When we first speak with clients about their dedicated, custom-designed home theater systems in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and throughout the world, the first topic on most people's minds is the visual component. After all, you enter a theater, and the first thing you see is a large screen that fills up the room. They want the experience of immersing themselves in the visuals, with a keen interest in how the theater looks when it’s not in use and the lights are on.
But, if you think about it, what makes the experience so memorable? Without the sound of the waves lapping onto the shore or the leaves rustling in the wind, the pictures can't come to life. As George Lucas said, "The sound and music are 50% of the entertainment in a movie.”
That’s why we’re taking a moment to discuss sound and the tremendous difference that a high quality sound system can make in your luxury home theater.
Surround sound gives us the ability to create a three-dimensional sound setting. When speakers and subwoofers are calibrated and placed in the perfect location, the sound comes through you. You feel the rhythm of the words and the music, and you become immersed and engaged. Think of a horror film and the blood-curdling scream or the soft yet persistent creaking door. Every nuance, every sound, turns watching a movie into an experience. The silence is also very important so that the dynamic range jumps at the listener. This requires proper setup and a noise floor that is very low so that when the soundtrack is playing softly, the system itself is not making annoying noises.
At Frangioni Media, we work with top-of-the-line audio brands, such as Genelec, JL Audio, Velodyne, Sonance and James Loudspeakers, world leaders and innovators in commercial and residential audio solutions. Their speakers deliver powerful, crystal-clear sound quality while their architectural models stay hidden from view to protect your high-end décor.
Acoustic treatments keep the sound from reverberating, controlling reflections so that every detailed sound becomes crystal clear instead of bouncing around the room and degrading in the process. As a result, the sound will produce deep bass all the way up to the unmistakable tone of crystal glass.
With expert acoustic treatments, you experience better sound quality than commercial movie theaters, while also having a chance to enhance the overall room aesthetics.
A home theater is a place of refuge, an oasis away from the demands of everyday life. Before you even sit down, you want to feel a sense of peace and relaxation just from walking into the room. The good news is that you can have top-end audio and visual equipment without letting it take over the room.
When in the hands of experts, sound systems become invisible. No speakers protruding from walls or ceilings, and the lighting, audio-video, and climate are controlled with just one touch on your Crestron touchscreen or Control 4 system.
