Imagine how great it would be to listen to your favorite music anywhere in your Houston, TX home at the touch of a button. With a whole home audio solution that centralizes control of your music, you can take it with you anywhere you go. But sound systems aren't one-size-fits-all. In this blog, we'll focus specifically on which types of speakers would work best for your system, depending on where and how you're using it.

Whether you're cooking or hosting a party, you can liven up the atmosphere with the right playlist. In these cases, in-ceiling speakers are the best option. They blend in with your décor, so you can install multiple ones to get evenly distributed sound. Most in-ceiling speakers also use wide-dispersion technology, so sound waves don’t go out in one specific direction. This way, if you walk past a ceiling speaker, you won’t notice you’re standing directly under it. In-ceiling speakers can also be useful in surround sound settings. In Dolby Atmos-enabled setups, you need a couple speakers above the viewer to get truly immersive, three-dimensional sound.
In-wall speakers are also a great way to upgrade from general whole home audio to a surround sound system. Complement your in-ceiling speakers with three in-wall speakers in front of the viewer (one central and two on the side) and two besides the viewer to mimic a 5.1 surround sound setup. If you want your music to be a bigger focus, like in a game room where you typically host parties, in-wall speakers are also a great way to get fuller sound than you would get with just in-ceiling fixtures.
In spaces where you already have cabinetry in place that could fit speakers, you can also opt for stylish cabinet speakers from Triad. They not only provide high-quality audio, but also become a decorative piece in the room. These speakers can be spread throughout the room for ambiance music or also be configured in a surround-sound setup if you expect to use them to watch movies.
For dedicated listening rooms with high-end 2-channel stereo systems, you want to invest in the best loudspeakers on the market. We recommend going with Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Speakers, considered by many to be the best in the world. We then create a design that lets them be the focal point of the room.
