I'd like to set up an awesome DIY sound system so our entire (huge) gymnastics facility is all listening to the same music source at once. The size of the facility (about 600' by 100') is my stumbling block, and the technological specifications and suggestions I get from Google are making my head spin!
Our gymnastics facility is currently in the process expanding, extending our gym to about 600ft by 100ft (an old steel warehouse building with 30ft ceilings). In the older space, we have two separate receivers hooked to two different sets of speakers which frequently play two different stations (driving me insane one song at a time). Stereo 1 is using an old Motorola Droid 1 to run the Sirius app on wifi. Stereo 2 is usually on a local radio station (which I do not want to play because of the increasing number of penis ads). Ideally, we will be using the Droid to run the entire system.
Ultimately, I'd like to find help to determine what the best solution would be without spending a fortune. My questions:
- I've heard good things about Sonos, but would this work in such a large space? We do have wifi that reaches across the building.
- Would it be best to find wireless speakers for the farthest reach, or should I be buying 600 feet of speaker cable? What else should I be looking for in a speaker?
- Is a radio transmitter something to consider? (Something like this
?) Or is it even legal to re-broadcast the satellite station?
- Should I just give up and call a professional?
Thanks in advance for the advice. :)
