I have a crossfit gym in a 15,000 sq ft metal warehouse. The area I want to cover with sound is approximately 8000 sq ft. I looked at the Sono's "home" system and liked what it offered but felt it lacked extremely (not to mention needing many speakers for coverage) for my application. Pluses were wifi connectivity and their app for control. The wifi connectivity I believe is a must. Wanting a streamlined system wireless as possible and great sound. Looking for your suggestions, thanks!

Call HTD and Crutchfield for advice.

Is this strictly for background music while people workout? Do you need a separate systems for aerobic workouts?

8000 ft² is about 90ft x 90ft (89.4ft). That is a pretty big space. What intensity do you need for the speakers? That is, how loud do you expect the sound to be?

Likely you will need a Multi-Channel amp to drive all the speakers. Similar to what is seen at the HTD website. For your source you will need some kind of Pre-Amp, assuming you have more than one source input. For a single source, the system can perhaps be simpler.

Depending on the output level you need and the construction of the room, In-Ceiling speakers would probably work. They can be distributed around the room to give you full coverage, but if you want loud sound and good fidelity, you are going to need larger (8") more expensive speakers.

Depending on your budget, you should first educate yourself so you can make rational decisions, and once you have the basics, higher a professional company to make recommendations and install.

If you look at the HTD system, they can run as high as $1500 (6 speaker zones), and it is not clear if that provides enough speaker to get the job done. So give some thought to how much you are willing to spend, and don't expect it to be cheap. For 12 speaker zones, the price is $2700 -

Note speakers are not mentioned in these systems. So that is an additional Cost.

Just to give you some idea on the speaker, here is a link to a company called SpeakerCraft -

This is going to take some time and planning.

Another option is something like Behringers B112w and B115w bluetooth PA speakers.

Just make sure you use a class 1 Bluetooth adapter for the range you intend to use them in.....
