McKinney, Texas
AV Makeover Transforms Entertainment Haven
OPEN-CONCEPT
rooms afford the
space to integrate a bevy of
TVs, speakers, and other
entertainment gear, and Elite
AV went full-bore with this
makeover. Multiple displays,
several independent audio
zones, and lighting control
create an atmosphere of
pure AV bliss. No matter if
the owners are playing
billiards, gaming, watching
movies, or just hanging out,
there's proper video and
audio accompaniment.
The centerpiece is a 100inch
Sony TV. It looks right
at home mounted against a
dark gray wall and flanked
by recessed Origin Acoustics
speakers and KEF subwoofers
customized to match the wall
surface. A JL Audio subwoofer
at the rear of the viewing
area adds even more bass.
Tackling a Tricky
Surround-Sound Situation
INTEGRATING A
Samsung Frame TV
into the existing wall unit of
this renovated media was no
problem. An existing cavity in
the woodwork was prime
real estate for the 75-inch
display and blended in more
like a piece of art than an
entertainment component.

Integration
Madison, Ala.
The biggest head-scratcher
in this scenario was
the setup of the surround-sound
speakers,
however. Slanted, beamed
ceilings comprising a variety
of textures, tiers, and colors,
plus styles of light fixtures,
add architectural interest
but offer no clear-cut
approach to the installation
of speakers. Balancing looks
and performance, Mozaic
recessed in the ceiling
two rear Discreet Opening
surround speakers from Sonance,
which resemble the
recessed light fixtures. The

Around the corner, a
50-inch Samsung Frame TV
delivers video to the billiards
and gaming area. In-ceiling
Origin Acoustics speakers fill
the rest of the media room
with audio. Despite being
bathed in plenty of natural
light, the displays deliver
bright, crisp images.
Colorbeam LED lighting
adds visual impact and an
Ecobee 4 thermostat maintains
the perfect climate. It's
all managed via a Control4
system, which responds to
both Alexa voice commands
and traditional remote. It
doesn't take long to prep for
any activity - pipe in some
background tunes to the billiards
area, kick-start the big
screen and surround sound
for a movie, dim the lights, or
adjust the AC. CE Pro

pair attractively with the

with a Lutron Radio RA
