How do I set up audio outside?
Audio is a big part of AtmosFX Digital Decorations. Some decorations may only feature background music, but many feature fully designed sound effects or even dialogue. When you set up your decorations outside, you'll probably want to use outdoor speakers to really sell your effect.
Fortunately, there are so many solutions for setting up your audio outdoors!
Whatever speakers you use, be sure that they are protected from dirt and rain. You don't want to let your equipment get damaged.
Most projectors and/or media players will feature a ⅛” (3.5mm) audio jack, like the kind you use for headphones on your phone or MP3 player.
You may be able to find a long audio cable and simply run the length outside to your speakers.
You may also want to consider using Bluetooth speakers. There is a huge variety of Bluetooth audio solutions on the market, and many are even weather resistant! As long as you find a Bluetooth solution that can connect to the audio output on your projector, you should be all set.
We've spoken with fellow decorators have used FM radio transmitters for large-scale, all-season haunts. This is a more advanced and expensive solution, but very popular for professional use.
