Audio Distribution System

Where Caution Blends with Technology!

What truly differentiates a distributed audio system from a standard PA system is that transformers are built into the speakers and special amplifiers are used to power the speakers properly. The speakers’ onboard electronics distribute the power from the amplifier evenly and safely.

Distributed audio systems can be as small or large as you need them to be. You can install your own system if you’re comfortable with basic speaker wiring techniques. It’s important to pay attention to details. You must make sure the power rating of your chosen amplifier can safely run the speakers in your system.

Larger-scale systems often require more involved wiring schemes and heavy-duty construction. Professional contractors are sometimes required for those types of installations.

Distributed audio systems must be designed to suit individual needs. In order to determine what equipment will be necessary to create a system, you must first determine the requirements of the installation.

Type of Audio System

There are three basic types of distributed audio systems:

  1. Background
  2. Foreground
  3. A combination of the two

Two types of speakers are used for fixed installations:

  1. Ceiling-Mount Speakers (internal)
  2. Surface-Mount Speakers (external)
