 DIY Installation

 

With the widespread availability of A/V equipment via the internet, there is a great temptation to buy online and let volunteers do the installation. After all, won’t we save money? I have seen this scenario many times and have drawn the following conclusion: “The most expensive labor is volunteer labor.” This conclusion is based on the following observations. 1. The volunteer installer works in a related field but has little or no experience in professional audio-video. 2. The volunteer often buys the wrong equipment and it usually ends up in a closet or storage room. 3. The volunteer installer does not possess the instrumentation to measure and adjust system performance. 4. Since the volunteer is usually a member of the congregation, he cannot be held accountable for failure to produce the desired results. Often the faulty system cannot be replaced for fear that the volunteer will be offended. 5. What makes volunteer labor so expensive is that many times the customer ends up buying twice. We are often called in after a failed attempt where the wrong equipment has been purchased and we end up starting over. Sound Planning will get it right the first time because this is not our first time. We installed our first sound system way back in 1970. We have been continuously involved in sound system installation ever since. See our list of installations and endorsements and I think you will agree that we have established ourselves as a leading audio-video contractor. Also, see “Do you really want to buy three sound systems?”
