Omaha, Neb.
House Party with Monsters
NOW THIS is a house
of horrors ... and that's
exactly what the homeowner
wanted to highlight.
Turning this high-end
monster house into a
monster party house was an
exhilarating challenge for the
team at Echo Systems, but
the integrator reports it was
worth the effort.
" Challenged to execute a
professional rave-level experience
in this one-of-a-kind
Omaha home pushed our
team to perform at its very
best, " says Echo Systems'
Doug Dushan. " The homeowner
is an avid collector
of high-quality Halloween
monsters, and they have
simply taken over his home.
It could prove disquieting
working late with monsters
looming, but in the end, we
all became good friends. "
The audio system provides
extremely low distortion,
high-output sound (118dB) in
every corner of the custom40
| CE Pro November 2021
er's mancave and bar area.
The bass is thunderous, yet
all perfectly distributed,
Dushan says.
" This was a particular challenge
to hide the large subwoofers
or different types
and get the right placement
and performance, " he adds.
" The cherry on top was the
JL Audio Gotham front and
center in the room between
the fog machines. "
A mix of loudspeakers and
audio amplifiers comes from
Wisdom Audio and Sonance
powering their respective
in-wall arrays and in-ceiling
models. Savant and Just Add
Power handle the control
and AV distribution. The client
provided video displays
and sources such as Blu-ray
players.
The lighting in the mancave
was executed using
colorful Ketra fixtures to
achieve the most vivid red,
to the client's delight.
Dushan says it wasn't easy

pitching this powerful AV
project on trade partners.
" When the client gave us
carte blanche to do what
it took to accomplish our
vision for him, we had to
get the other contractors
onboard. They had a hard
time tearing apart a beautiful
home that had just
recently been completed, "
he recalls. " The front wall of
the mancave was finished
stacked stone, so retrofitting
the on-wall Wisdom
speakers required quite a bit
of demo. "
He adds that the monsters
did cause a bit of a
challenge on this ghoulish
job, but just working with a
customer who's looking for a
shoot-for-the-moon type of
solution makes up for it.
" That [challenge] was
offset by the absolute green
light from the client to do
whatever it took to design
and implement a professional
rave-level audio experience
in this unique 365-day Halloween
home was our asset, "
Dushan says. " CE Pro
