Now, I am starting to upgrade it all. Outside has had it's outdoor speakers fully removed, as I was never really all too happy with the Adastra FC4 speakers. They only had 3" woofers, no bass, and they weren't all to clear. It was a similar story in the house, I was using Adastra BC3V speakers inside the house, they too weren't all too clear and had no bass.
The hallway speaker I use primarily for when I am in the kitchen and announcements, I am going to replace with an APart Mask 4T loudspeaker. The bathroom speaker is going to get a JBL Control 25T speaker.
Outside, I have still not decided entirely what I want to do. Some of the speakers outside will still be cabinet speakers, and those will be the APart Mask 6s, but I intend to use some more discrete rock speakers, and some sound projectors if possible, to make it a little bit more exciting and have better coverage.
I also intend to upgrade my amp to one that supports 100V line. Currently, I use the B output of my main amplifier with a speaker selector, and this then drives my 5 zones worth of speakers, but I want to go fully 100V line and use an amplifier that is capable of driving a long speaker line.
However, to get a good amp, they are not necessarily cheap. I want to stick with APart as that is what all the speakers outside are going to be, and I also want a multi-zone model, primarily for inside and outside, which further ramps up the cost.
The original install I did was back in August 2016, and I did so with a limited budget, and when I was beginning to get into 100V line, without all the knowledge I have regarding high impedance speaker systems I have now.
I will make regular updates on this blog based on the new system upgrades, including both installation photos, and links to videos on the YouTube channel showing the sound quality of the newly installed equipment.
Although as of now only two loudspeakers are due to be replaced, the entire outdoor system has been removed ready for upgrades in 2018, and I do have further plans to install both more speakers inside and outside than I had on the original setup; hence my desire to move away from low impedance and instead to 100V line, which is far more ideal than my 5 zone speaker selector that runs on low impedance speaker lines.
