Big Rebuild Gives Owners New Respect for Home Automation
Slide 8 of 11


Dining Room Listening

A pair of Focal in-ceiling speakers blankets the dining room with the homeowners’ choice of songs. As important to the owners as their audio system’s performance, was its appearance and its ease of use. Every speaker grille was painted to match the surface of the ceiling, and custom grille cloth was applied to cabinetry custom-designed to hold the front left, right and center speakers of each surround-sound system. “The painter did such a good job, you’d never know there were $300,000 worth of speakers and subwoofers in this house,” says Dohman. And absolutely nothing gives away the power behind the audio, as every amp, processor and player was neatly tucked away in an air-conditioned attic.
