3 Things to Expect During Your First Audio Video Installation

Don’t Go in Unprepared

3 Things to Expect During Your First Audio Video Installation

So, you’ve decided to upgrade your AV with integrated technology. Good choice. That means you’ll get more out of your system and it will be easier to control.

But first you have to go through the dreaded installation phase. Don’t worry, it’s not that bad.

In fact, the discovery and installation are some of the most fun parts of enjoying a new system. Why? Because that’s where you get to choose the technology you want and define a system as unique as you are.

If you’re looking at an audio video installation soon (or if the idea makes you hesitate to move forward) this is the blog for you. In it, we’ll give you three things you can expect when you upgrade the tech in your Ojai space. Find out more below.


The discovery is the most exciting part of any installation. It’s where you figure out what you want in your system.

First, you’ll tell your integrator exactly what you want, then they’ll make it happen. Well, it’s not that simple, but close.

Every home is different, and every project is different. And while those differences make your space unique, they may also make it hard to enjoy some technology the same way you see it in a showroom.

Want a super-massive theater screen? You may have a better experience in a small room with one appropriate for the space. Love the idea of Dolby Atmos surround sound? It may be harder to enjoy in a room with vaulted ceilings.

You don’t have to worry you won’t get incredible picture and sound. You will. And you’ll get a system that fits the space.


The installation is an in-depth process in which your integrator will mount displays, recess speakers, and lay cabling throughout your home. If that sounds painful, you’re likely overthinking things.

Quality integrators are no strangers to this type of work. And most of the time, installations are done cleanly and efficiently.

Your integrator will give you a plan and a time frame and work hard to stay within those parameters. The best part? You’ll be involved the whole time. No, you won’t have to swing any hammers (unless you really want to), but your integrator will keep you informed of any developments to ensure there are no surprises.


The walkthrough is the best part of any installation. It’s where you get to learn how to use everything.

From one-touch controls of each device, to smart additions like simple lighting and shading control, your system is easy to use. Once your integrator shows you how, there’s no slowing down. With the touch of a button, you can transform your entire AV system into the ultimate entertainment escape.
