Home Entertainment Ideas To Watch the Big Game

Home Entertainment Ideas for Watching the Big Game in Frisco, TX

Do you get excited as football season draws near? We certainly do!  Football means cheering on your favorite team, having friends and family over to scream and celebrate a good play, it means temperatures getting cooler outside. All great things. All opportunities to have fun, eat good food, and make memories. Let’s explore some home entertainment ideas and ways to step up your game at home to watch the big game.

Get the Popcorn Honey – We’re Watching the game in our Media Room!

Media rooms can provide the ultimate experience to watch the big game…on the BIG screen! It’s like being in a movie theater, sitting comfy in home theater chairs, eating popcorn, drinking your beverage of choice, and rallying with your family…and maybe even a group of your buddies. You can mount the biggest, coolest TV you can find on your wall or mount a projector with a large projector screen (typical projector screens can range from 92″ to 130″+). It’s all preference. We have customers who do prefer the TV over the projector with screen. Check out projector screen options here.

Gather Around, Family – We’re Watching the game in our Family Room!

Upgrade your family room set up with a large TV mounted on the wall (or mounting above the fireplace has became popular). Go for a 70″ mounted TV, have 5.1 surround sound speakers or 7.1 surround sound speakers installed. The surround sound speakers will give you the maximum sound to enjoy the big game in your family room.

Another home theater option for your family room, instead of surround sound speakers, is a soundbar. This is either mounted beneath the TV on the wall, or sat on the entertainment console. It is a great substitute for the standard surround sound speakers.

Come on over Friends – We’re Watching the game on the Back Patio and while we grill and enjoy the Fall weather!

Take the watching party outside! Mount a big TV on your back patio. Add a pair or two of outdoor speakers to enhance the sound. You can purchase a standard flat screen TV for the patio and enclose it in a weather-proof TV case (idea! take on a fun Pinterest project and build one!). Or you can purchase a weather-proof TV. This is the more costly option, but certainly guarantees there would be no problems with it being on the patio.

This is a great time of year to invest in home entertainment, no matter which option you choose!  Cheers to Fall, football, and building memories with family and friends.

Outdoor Entertainment Ideas

Summer is right around the corner! Is your backyard and pool ready to entertain? Have you daydreamed about sitting on your back patio or relaxing in the pool, while listening to music, laughing, and enjoying quality time outdoors?  If you answered yes, then you aren’t the only one!  Outdoor entertainment is a big thing, and it certainly adds entertainment value to your home (not to mention the ‘cool’ factor with your friends and family!).  We have listed a few excellent outdoor entertainment ideas from the a/v world.

There are many options for outdoor entertainment, to satisfy any scope of entertainment desire from a simple pair of patio speakers to a full multi-speaker with subwoofer system. Let’s break it down…

  • Patio Speakers: These are mounted (on-wall or in-wall), typically, under the eave or arbor on the back patio. If you want to think outside the box, patio speakers can be mounted to a tree or anywhere you want to conceal the speakers. They are outdoor-rated, making them weather-proof. You can mount one pair of speakers, or as many as you want. So, have fun with it!
  • Mounted Patio TV: There are essentially two options: 1) Purchase an inexpensive TV (any size) and have it professionally mounted under a covered patio, such as an arbor that will protect it indirectly from the elements. It’s also a good idea to purchase a cover or box to house the TV. This helps with protecting it from moisture. 2) Purchase an all-weather outdoor TV, such as a Sunbrite. This TV is a true outdoor TV, created to be outdoors and withstand the elements of the weather year-round. It’s a more pricey option, but it’s a great option.
  • Rock and Planter Speakers:

    Both are made to blend with your outdoor surroundings.

  • They produce excellent sound while blending in the landscape. There are seemingly endless options for rock and planter speakers. This is a really cool way to get the sound you want, and blending it with the yard.


Sonance SR1

  • Multi-Speaker System:  We have a great recommendation on this one. The Sonarray SR1 by Sonance system is incredible! It comes with 8 speakers and a subwoofer. This is the speaker system you want to get if you want some serious sound. Each speaker can be discretely placed throughout the yard and/or around the pool, including the sub. The sub needs to be buried for maximum bass quality. Check out the demo of this system.

We could go on and on listing options. There are so many options, and it’s a lot of fun thinking about the possibilities! This list is a great start to brainstorming the outdoor entertainment ideas for your backyard and pool areas.
