Backyard Combines Pool, Putting Green, Hoops & Electronics

By Arlen Schweiger
Homeowners in this California hot spot can soak up the sun and engage in a number of activities, including controlling the music and videos.

This back yard has it all, whether you're into athletics or A/V.

A pool, a Jacuzzi, a putting green, and a sports court for basketball or other activities are included in the environment that California-based custom electronics pro Simply Sight and Sound integrated its audio/video angles.

The client asked for sound for the whole back yard area. So we installed multiple pairs of Destination Audio outdoor speakers in the planters around the pool and sports court, in the trellis above the Jacuzzi, in the corners of the bar area and in the outdoor living room, says Simply Sight and Sound's Jeff Cooper.

Mainly combining to control and provide content in the expanse are an Onkyo Multi Zone Receiver and controls from RTI. The homeowners can watch television or a DVD movie in the living room area and play music throughout the rest of the yard thanks to the multizone capability of the Onkyo.

We programmed an RTI U1 and a RTI M2 remote to give the client easy control from anywhere in the back yard, says Cooper. And when we say anywhere, we mean anywherethey can even take the U1 into the pool or Jacuzzi to change channels, CDs, radio stations and volume control.
