Article: The Sounds of Summer (My Outdoor Audio Project)


Recommended Posts

I enjoyed reading your home improvement DIY project as that was pretty cool.  I also like seeing pictures of other parts of the USA which made me a little sick for the neighborhoods I grew up in on the East coast.  My only constructive criticism is a smaller pipe to hold the speakers were have been less noticeable, unless you were accounting for high winds or the speakers are really heavy?  It is killer when mother nature weathers the equipment.  My back was hurting just reading about the trenching task.  I would have never even considered trenching myself LOL.

Chris,

 

I assumed the real reason you installed this system was to increase egg production, but then I saw that you are using the incorrect genre for that goal:  https://www.producer.com/news/mellow-music-puts-hens-in-the-mood-for-laying/

 

The magic CD can be downloaded.  😏

I honestly really like the way this project turned out and appreciate the sound judgement throughout.  I say this with the utmost regard for your avoidance of every single awful design trend that could've snuck in to overrule worth of the practical end result.  Of course it ended up looking like it sat in your garden and the metal caps formed a protective layer of rust.  By mid-Spring you won't even know they are there without making an effort to look.  Perfect. 

 

For the climate conditions they'll face you did an excellent job here.  Be curious to hear if you get any use out of it this Winter and how the sound is.  Lush grass and tree leaves gently diffusing music trickling out of speakers is only half the year.  Just be aware how far and focused the sound will carry.         

 

 

 

[90% of this post was redacted once I admitted @AudioDoctor obliterated with a few words what I could've put a lot more work into.    x-D  Bravo!]

Do you plan on storing or taking the speakers in during the winter months?

 

From the article: "The way I mounted the speakers to the stands will enable me to remove them for the winter easily."

It looks like foxes and coyotes are not a problem in your area.

 

They are around, but can't get into this coop. I laid chicken wire under the ground, coming out from the coop two feet. Any animal that digs, hits the wire and gives up.
