Background Music Systems
Creative Audio Video and Automation offers a wide variety of background music systems to fit any size business or budget.
System Design The Wrong Way…
A standard stereo receiver that you would normally install for your home is not the best solution for a background music system that would be installed in your business.
Standard stereo amplifiers put out low-voltage, high-current signals that require large and expensive speaker wires to power speakers. The more speakers you add to a stereo system, the more difficult it becomes to safely connect them. You may find that you need multiple amplifiers, driving costs up considerably.
70 Volt – System Design The Right Way!
Because the voltage is high, the current running through a 70-volt system is low. We use thinner, less expensive speaker wire costing you less on parts and labor. The amplifiers we use don’t have “load impedance” issues. It doesn’t matter how many speakers you connect.
Each speaker incorporates a transformer that steps down the high voltage to a level that the speaker can handle. The transformer has multiple taps to achieve different wattage levels for the speaker. The higher the wattage tap, the louder the speaker will play.
It doesn’t matter how many speakers are connected as long as their total wattage rating doesn’t exceed the power capacity of the amplifier. This means that a single 100-watt amplifier could easily run (25) 3-watt speakers, covering a considerable area for background music and announcements.
A sound system must be designed to work with the room acoustics and to meet the needs of the facility. The sound system may be required to deliver natural and transparent speech reinforcement in a lively acoustic environment, or reinforce a fully amplified band or orchestra in a large hall or arena. In either case, the understanding of the acoustical environment is critical to the successful sound system design.
A sound reinforcement system is the combination of microphones, signal processors, amplifiers, and loudspeakers in speaker cabinets that makes live or pre-recorded sounds louder and may also distribute those sounds to a larger or more distant audience.
Sound Masking Solutions for Commercial Environments
As the world leader in speech privacy technology, Creative Audio Video and Automation and AtlasIED have partnered to offer a full array of sound masking solutions that can be deployed in any installation where speech privacy is critical.
A sound masking system emits low-level, non-distracting masking noise designed to reduce speech intelligibility and thereby improve speech privacy. This improvement in speech privacy can be of great value in open-plan offices, doctors’ examination rooms and other environments where confidentiality is important.
Sound masking can also reduce the distraction caused by traffic, office machinery and other unwanted sounds. Because this benefit is limited to situations where the unwanted sounds are of relatively low level, however, speech privacy is the focus of most sound masking systems
Business Types that Benefit from Speech Privacy
Sound Masking can be added to any building area requiring improved privacy.
Creative Audio Video and Automation offers solutions that are affordable and long-lasting. It is the lowest cost solution to add privacy when compared to architectural improvements.
