Some Customer Comments

Simple words cannot express the thanks and appreciation I would like to extend to Florida Sound Engineering Company for the work completed on our new 3,000-seat Worship Center.

Throughout the project you were always there for us, you were available for conference calls, you were available for simple questions and to give advice on equipment, your team provided a neat and timely installation and the final product sounds fantastic. The balance of sound in the Worship Center is beautiful.

Some Customer Comments

Florida Sound handled the sound and video system for our $4.5 million project completed in August of 2002. I have nothing but praise for Bob Cole and the Florida Sound team. They handled themselves in a very professional manner, met all timelines, worked within an intense construction environment with varied personalities, while maintaining a great attitude. I’ve remarked to my staff on a couple of occasions that I would have gotten a little more sleep during our construction process if all the subcontractors conducted themselves like Florida Sound.

Throughout the construction of our new facility, Florida Sound has been a first-rate contractor and we highly recommend their services.

COVID-19 Update

FLORIDA SOUND NEWS

By: Michael | Update posted: June 28, 2021

Wow, what a year we’ve all had. And many are still experiencing the sadness of losing friends or loved ones. If that is true in your case, let me express my condolences and my hope for better days ahead – and sincere wishes for a progressive healing.

There was a man some 3600 years ago who stated:

“If only my anguish could be fully weighed and put on scales together with my calamity! For now it is heavier than the sands of the seas.”

— Job 6:2, 3

What a word picture he painted. His vexation or anguish – if it was put on a scale – would max out. It was heavier than the “sands of the seas.” Maybe you too feel like him? Take heart as this man was able to overcome his depth of despair. And you and I can too.

Florida Sound stayed open during the pandemic as an essential business. We prioritized customer service and installation based on health care providers and other emergency/essential services. When local authorities ordered businesses to work from home where possible, we did. And we have considered it a privilege to support health care workers and our neighbors by wearing appropriate safety gear, following CDC recommendations.

We stand for truth loyalty and integrity

We stand for…

+ Truth

Definition of “Truth”

“The quality of being in accord with fact or reality. Truth is a comprehensive term that in all of its nuances implies accuracy and honesty.” (thefreedictionary.com)

+ Loyalty

Definition of “Loyalty”

“Faithful to a person, ideal, custom, cause, or duty.” (thefreedictionary.com)

+ Integrity

Definition of “Integrity”

“Uncompromising adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character.” (thefreedictionary.com)”

+ Where did “Stand” / “Fall” adage come from?

“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.”

According to Quote Investigator: “An interesting precursor for the saying appeared in a Methodist church announcement in an Iowa newspaper from 1926. The word order and meaning were distinct, but the keywords were the same. In 1927 the same precursor was printed as a “Sermonogram” in an Ohio newspaper:  ‘It is easier to fall for anything than to stand for something.'”

Everything we do is by design

How Design Benefits an Audiovisual System

+ Aesthetics

Look sharp, people.

We take into consideration how the system will look and blend into your environment. Also, each customer may have different ideas of what should be minimized and what should stand out.

+ Room/Venue Acoustics & Lighting

Echo, echo, echo…

Okay, we couldn’t resist with the “echo” usage. But it is true, you could invest in the highest quality equipment and still have issues with intelligibility. The same is true with washed-out images on a screen, if lighting and placement aren’t considered in the design.

Let us “echo” these sentiments: We can help you, we can help you. Okay, running it in the ground, you think? Yes, we can help you solve complex audiovisual system problems with better design. ‘Nuff said.

+ Cost

Cha-ching!

Yes, the bottom line, what is the cost? Everyone has budgetary requirements. We understand shrinking client budgets and know how to make them work for you. For example, “we’ll look for alternate pieces of equipment that offer more bang for the buck,” stated Robert Cole, president of Florida Sound. “Most projects don’t need lots of bells and whistles. They require raw horsepower and performance. We’ll look for alternative equipment, for less money, with the same specifications or better.”

If you would like to learn more about our philosophy on “value engineering” please read the entire insightful interview of our president, Robert Cole, found in Sound & Communications magazine.

+ Ease of Use

Keep it Simple

We are system integrators and we work hard to integrate equipment and simplicity of use. While the system backend might involve programming, network protocols, and complex wiring, the frontend can be designed to simplify the user experience. That is what we do for you as part of the design.

+ Ease of Servicing

Better Design + Clean Installations = Ease of Service

It may not seem very important to compare something like the wiring of equipment racks, but try to service the rack a year later and you will realize the value of doing the job right from the beginning. Also noteworthy is how installation by Florida Sound can actually reduce future repair costs.

Florida Sound vs Competitor

Did you know we guarantee our installations? See our 1-year installation labor warranty in the Installation and Sales Agreement.

+ Uptime

Better Choices by Design = Greater Reliability

According to technopedia.com, “uptime is a metric that represents the percentage of time that hardware, an IT system or device is successfully operational. It refers to when a system is working, versus downtime, which refers to when a system is not working.” 📕

By analyzing all the factors (listed categories above) we can make recommendations on equipment selection that includes greater uptime and less future service costs. A win-win. And our technicians are truly a force for good in maintaining your audiovisual systems.

Putting People First Makes for Better Design

How Our People Make for Better Design

+ Imagination

Can you imagine a solution?

We can. One reference work states, in part: “Imagination helps make knowledge applicable in solving problems.” 📕 Can you imagine what problems our team can solve for you?

+ Critical Thinking and Discernment

We listen and think things through, then act

Critical thinking is “disciplined thinking that is clear, rational, open-minded, and informed by evidence.” 📕

Discernment is the ability to tell right from wrong, then choose the wise course. While we do not set moral codes for others, the work culture at Florida Sound is about doing the right thing – being honest and truthful to each other and our customers. Do you see the benefits of critical thinking and using discernment? What would this bring to your project?

+ Pride, Care,  and Support

We take pride in our work because we care

While not being perfect, we are confident in our ability and this website is designed so you can see that for yourself. We care about our reputation individually and as a company. We also want you to see us as the real people we are, with heart and soul. We care about our families, our team members, and our community. This care leads to action.

Do you see what we mean when we say “everything we do is by design”? It is at the core of who we are, why we do it, and the manner in which it is done.

Good chat, now let’s eat some ice cream!🍦

Design | AV System Integration

AUDIOVISUAL DESIGN WITH YOU IN MIND

Puzzled at the prospect of finding the right company to handle your design needs?

Before a system is installed, it has to be designed. A properly designed audiovisual system can make the difference between dull and muddled or bright and clear. Sound systems especially are affected by the acoustics of a room. If that isn’t taken into account, you can throw all the money and premium electronic gadgets at a job, and you will still not achieve the clarity of a less expensive system that has been properly designed. Even things like air conditioning systems can affect the intelligibility of a sound system.

If you are in the market for a new audiovisual system, make sure that it is properly designed before any equipment is ever proposed, let alone installed. We can help make the pieces fit.

AV System Installation

FROM LARGE TO SMALL, WE DO IT ALL

Florida Sound has been installing sound systems since 1968 and video systems since 1985. However, length of time alone does not mean quality installation. Just take a close look at a job done by a competitor:

Florida Sound vs Competitor

If you examine how an audiovisual company wires a system, hang speaker clusters, or support their customers during installation, you will see a clear difference. It may not seem very important to compare something like the wiring of equipment racks, but try to service the rack a year later and you will realize the value of doing the job right from the beginning. Also noteworthy is how installation by Florida Sound can actually reduce future repair costs.

We have installed systems in small venues all the way up to stadiums with mission critical sound for over 75,000 in attendance. Our craftsmanship shines on each project we take on. It shows throughout, and for that matter, years afterward. We handle each job with the satisfaction of knowing when all is said and done, that we did our best. Do you deserve any less?
