How To Plan An Audio-Visual System For Your New Construction Home

Building a house from scratch makes sure that you truly get everything you want out of your new home. But when you start without any infrastructure, you’ll have to have someone design every system, from HVAC to plumbing.

Unfortunately, most people forget to consider a hugely important part of planning when building a new construction home: your audio-visual system.

Whether you want a full smart home where every part of your property is linked, or you just want to build out a home theater or some general audio features, the earlier you start considering A/V needs, the easier it will be to keep your system wireless, hidden, and functioning its best.

Speaker Placement

It’s in your best interest to work with an experienced A/V installation team when planning your home’s new system. Speakers are a considerable part of any A/V system, so they will likely be placed in rooms where you want to watch TV or listen to music. But you don’t want prominent, bulky speakers taking up wall space, so planning for them before walls are installed will help you hide them away.

Equipment Placement

Depending on what you want from your system, you’ll want a storage area for the bulk of this equipment to go. However, you’ll need a space that has climate control and often, ventilation, so planning for this before your home is built will help identify areas for this equipment to live out of your way.

Wire Placement

You definitely don’t want wires and cords traversing your home theater’s walls or hanging under your patio, which is why installing A/V assets during construction is ideal. No mess opening up and reclosing walls, and no unsightly wires.
