'Wireless' does not mean easy. Chicago-area retirees turn to integrator Orbis Solutions for 30-speaker Beale Street Audio wireless audio solutions driven by Sonos amps.
CE Pro Editors February 11, 2019
Just because a system is "wireless" it does not necessarily mean it is simple to set up, configure, and install. That is the lesson a retired couple in Chicago recently learned when they brought in a professional custom integrator. The couple purchased a new home in 2013, and during the design process, they had the ceilings prewired for multiroom audio. However, at the time they did not get around to completing the speaker installation.
Years later they decided it was time to get their whole-home audio system up and running, but with no previous experience installing in-ceiling speakers - let alone the knowledge of which speakers they should buy - the homeowners decided it was best to involve a professional. They called on Orbis Solutions, an Aurora, Ill.-based provider of A/V and IT services.
After talking to the homeowners, represenatatives from Orbis recognized that a decor-friendly, easy-to-use system with high-quality speakers was imperative.
The house had been pre-wired for 30 in-ceiling speakers, allowing for music in every room, but the homeowners were not looking for a complex automation system that required multiple remotes and bulky electronics.
Instead, they insisted that the equipment be hidden away and that they be able to select and play their music all with the touch of a button from a phone, tablet, or keypad.
Orbis was tasked with designing a system that offered discreet solutions, exceptional sound, and wireless streaming capabilities.
Beale Street Audio, Sonos Solutions Spec'ed
Having been recently introduced to Vanco International's speaker brand, Beale Street Audio, and hearing the level of performance that Beale's patented Sonic Vortex technology provided, the technicians at Orbis Solutions specified Beale's in-ceiling speakers for the entire indoor system.
"We are big fans of Beale Street Audio because of their unique engineering and design," says Justin Tamm, lead installer for Orbis Solutions.
"Unlike most in-ceiling speakers, Beale Street speaker ports are divided into multiple sections called 'fins' that compress and move air at a high rate of speed without port noise, allowing for a 6dB to 9dB boost in the mid to lower bass, and a flatter frequency response across the audio spectrum. In other words, the speakers sound far bigger and better than other speakers of the same size."
Obis Solutions technicians also chose Beale Street speakers for this particular installation because of the broad selection of in-ceiling speakers and sizes available.
"One of the benefits of our Beale Street Audio line is that there is a speaker solution ideal for any installation type, allowing for consistent sounds from room to room," says Mark Corbin, president of Vanco International.
In this case, the Orbis technicians were able to select a speaker model (ICW4-BM) to match the 4-inch cut-outs of the can lighting in the kitchen.
To deliver broad sound and deep bass throughout the rest of the home with the same acoustic signature, Orbis technicians installed 6.5-inch IC6-MV in-ceiling speakers, and 8-inch, IC8-MV in-ceiling speakers, all of which utilize Beale's Sonic Vortex ported transmission line.
Orbis Solutions technicians were able to install the speakers with minimal effort. "The first words out of their mouths were, 'Why on earth did we wait so long?'" ~ Justin Tamm, Orbis Solutions.
