hi fellows

my father in law has a sports bar that need improvement for the sound


1600 feet square is the dimension and for now there is 4 speakers hanging on the ceiling....unknown 4 ohms speakers drive by a sony surround! system that has at least 5 years and more.His system when you go too loud just jump....the connections in 4 ohms are ok.....so basically I will pass high gauge speakers wire and need advice for a reciever and some good speakers...he wants it loud...mainly listen to nhl,ufc and nfl but sometimes there is some party and there a jukebox connected to it.Also need fm plus a couple of input(hd cable box + dvd(b-ray).


It would be good to have maybe extra speakers in the hall for the bathrooms and maybe extra in the corners of the bars cause the 4 speakers are in the middle of the room where all the table chair are but there is a pool table in a corner and lottery machine in a other corner


should I go with a stereo receiver but what about if I want a load of 8 or 10 speakers instead of 4.....and how much power do you think I need.....and for the speakers I am a bit loss for the type I need....


thanks in advance

For starters, it’s a bad idea to use residential equipment for a commercial installation. The fact that your father-in-law is having problems with is current system should be evidence enough. Home equipment is relatively light duty and isn’t designed for the rigors of every-day, all day long operation.


Typically commercial audio uses 70-volt systems, which can easily accommodate multiple speakers. It sounds like this system perhaps needs to be a combination of regular and 70-volt speakers and amplifiers. Adding video capability adds to the system complexity.


It’s really impossible to design an adequate system without physically seeing the site to evaluate everything. Your father-in-law really needs to call a local specialist in commercial audio/video if he wants this done right.

++ that Wayne.


I see customers too many times constantly putting themselves behind the 8 ball by being cheap.


It's not that they can't afford it. It's that they don't see paying for equipment designed to do the job as an investment. Just a cost. I see people that are in business that view everything as a 'cost' and none of it an investment with ROI are soon to be out of business.
