Rocky Mountain Hi-fi


Some homeowners will be satisfied carrying their Bose out to the backyard while they barbecue, while others will demand an integrated and unobtrusive sound system.

A lot of work goes on behind the scenes and, sometimes literally, underground on those high-end projects. In-ground subwoofers are among the most popular products at ListenUp, according to sales consultant Dusty Gorski, as well as ground-level subwoofers with multiple monitors.

Keeping equipment on the ground makes it easier to integrate into the landscape, while multiple speakers pointed back at the house help with sound quality.

“With six or eight monitors and one subwoofer, … it sounds great wherever you’re sitting,” Gorski explained.

Using the house and other built-in features to reflect and contain sound helps homeowners use their system at a lower volume, and avoid making enemies of the neighbors.
Gorski said a good base package will cost around $5,000 to the homeowner, but high-end projects can reach $40,000 or $50,000.
