av pros: how do I design an audio system for an *outdoor* theater? Answered
I'm trying to come up with some specs for a mobile outdoor theater system and I could use some help with the audio work.
If I have sound coming out of a DVD player, what components do I need? I was guessing a receiver, several speakers, and a subwoofer. What criteria are important for creating a system that sounds good outside? Can subwoofers even produce an effect when they're not inside? (I'm not concerned about weather-proofing as the system will be stored inside.)
I also don't know whether it's worth going for surround sound or simple stereo, any advice?
This thing would show movies to about 100 people. I have about $1500 for the audio system, so go nuts.. And thanks for any help!
