Commonly Made Layout Mistakes
Due to the large areas that have to be covered and the difficult nature of installing outdoor speakers, it’s hard to create successful speaker layouts without the help of a professional. A common approach many people take is to mount a couple speakers on their home’s exterior and have them face outwards. You end up with a few problems when you go about it this way.
The main one is that you have uneven sound. In order to get sound to reach the outer edges of your backyard, it becomes unbearably loud in the areas closer to your home. Also, since the speakers are facing outwards the sound will inevitably leak into your neighbor’s property.
