Most of the time, you want to play the same music source throughout the entire space. However, you may want the option to play different sources in different places at the same time. You may also want to control volume levels independently. A well-designed commercial audio system can help you do this.

Each source will need its own amplifier. In our example, the CD player is our source for the dining room, and a TV is connected as our source for the bar area. We also have the first amplifier's preamp outputs connected to the second amp as an additional source. We do that so when there's not a game on TV, customers can hear the same music throughout the entire space. This setup makes it easy to change sources or add additional sources, like a paging microphone. Get in touch with our commercial audio experts to learn how we can help design your system.
