Despite the limiting space, this client was able to realize their dream of a full-fledged media room. Bekins, a CEDIA member in Grand Haven, Michigan, design a media room that delivered an excellent picture and high-quality audio.

Customer Wish-List

Blended Aesthetics: The client wanted the audio and video to blend with the look of the room.

Challenges

  • Room Aesthetics: The main wall - and focal point of the room - that the television and speakers were mounted was made of tile.
  • Audio Performance: Getting the bass right was a challenge.
  • Design: The system design process included more consultation with the designer than most projects.

Solutions

  • Hidden Equipment: All speakers were installed in-wall and in-ceiling. Additionally, Bekins located the equipment in an adjacent closet, conveniently nearby yet out of view.
  • User Interface: Bekins customized the client's iPad as the user interface so it worked like other apps he was accustomed to. With quick swipes and scrolls, the homeowner had complete control over the media room - simply and easily.
  • Media System: The television was positioned to sit as flush to the wall as possible. Bekins, Inc. was also able to find a speaker that performed well while also blending in with the tile.
  • Audio Performance: With CEDIA-certified technicians, the Bekins team was able to effectively calibrate the audio. Additionally, they were able to tune in lower frequencies to get the most out of the room.
