Warm weather is here at last after a long, cold Minnesota winter. As the trees begin to bloom and the grass turns greener, it’s time to start thinking about backyard parties and summer cookouts on your lawn. Specifically, the music!

There are plenty of ways to make the most of your backyard this summer, from adding a chiminea to stepping up your smoker game. But one thing that can really kick your summer fun into high gear is the sound of summer tunes piped in over your outdoor speakers.

If you’re thinking of adding speakers to your backyard, our audiovisual installers at SevenAV can help you create a killer backyard sound system.

Here are a few reasons you should think about installing outdoor speakers in your backyard this summer!

Music is a great social lubricant.

We’ve all been to those parties that seemed to have all the right ingredients but for some reason didn’t seem to take off. The food is great, there are plenty of guests, but no one is mingling and interacting. Blasting Childish Gambino or Pistol Annies over the speakers is a fast way to wake up the wallflowers and get everyone in the mood for great summer fun.

There’s a playlist for every outdoor activity.

You don’t need a cookout as an excuse to crank up the speakers. Are you working in the garden? A little outlaw country could be the perfect backdrop for all that digging and trimming.

Or how about a little downtempo music to go with your morning coffee while you watch the sunrise? Whether you’re into roots rock, eighties training montage tunes, or Miles Davis, a great playlist sets the mood for everything you do outside.

We can install outdoor speakers that blend in.

If the idea of having speakers hanging from your back porch and wires everywhere doesn’t sound too appealing, we’ve got solutions. With speakers painted to match the outside of your home and wires hidden away discreetly, your guests will wonder where the sound is coming from.

We can also integrate your outdoor and indoor speakers so your guests inside and outside can all be jamming to Bruno Mars at the same time!

Incorporate modern technology into your outdoor living space.

Outdoor speakers may be connected to your phone through Bluetooth, allowing you to listen to music on the go. Some speakers are even made to float and have a higher water resistance so that they may be used in a pool!

Thanks to the combination of contemporary technology with today's greatest outdoor speakers, they are convenient and provide high-quality sound.

You don’t have to worry about outdoor speakers in bad weather.

The most common worry among homeowners about outdoor sound systems is whether they can withstand changing weather conditions.

Rest assured that outdoor sound systems are built to endure extreme environmental conditions, including Minnesota’s severe summer storms. Your speakers will function at their best for years, even in high temperatures, wind, rain, dust, etc.

Bring simplicity to your home.

Rather than blasting your music from inside so you can hear it outside, outdoor speakers offer you the option of having your volume at an appropriate level anywhere in your house.

After inspecting your home's landscape,  our AV experts will help you install your speakers at strategic places for full pleasure and simplicity.
