I'm looking into options for a sound system in a large bar/restaurant that hasn't been built yet. Have full control over the network, construction, wiring, etc. We'll have a lot of TVs (10-15), we'll likely be in control of the music as opposed to the customers.
At home, I have a Playbar and 3 One's. I've used the Three + Five before. My home setup is wireless and sometime cuts out in a very obnoxious way. So I have a few questions:
1.) If everything is wired via ethernet, will that solve the problems of sync/cutting out between speakers?
2.) Is there a way to disable remote access to the devices if I want to keep it ethernet ONLY.
3.) Is there a way to broadcast sound without the controller app? Like.. via an audio jack/phone?
4.) How well does the controlled sound projection work in large spaces?
I'd consider using fewer Sonos devices as opposed to many JBL speakers at lower volume if the sound leveled out. I've read that Sonos uses some frequency technology to push the sound further out. One thing I'm worried about is sound being really loud next to one group but quiet near others.
5.) How far apart could I reasonably set these up to have a generally even coverage?
6.) Any feedback from attempting this? Lessons learned? etc
7.) Anyone use Sonos tech to manage multiple TVs and stereos simultaneously (like 10+ TVs) ?
