The newly launched Installation Gallery is a showcase for the best custom-installation home theaters created by JBL Synthesis dealers and distributors.
“JBL Synthesis loudspeakers and electronics are at the heart of many of the finest custom home theater installations in the world,” said Jim Garrett, director, marketing and product management for Harman Luxury Audio and Loudspeakers. “Our specialist dealers and systems integrators have conceived and built some of the most beautiful and spectacular home entertainment systems ever designed, and the JBL Synthesis Installation Gallery is a place where they can display their work to consumers and even show off a little bit.”
“We already have a number of striking installations on the site, and we invite our dealers/distributors to submit their work for addition to the Gallery. Like a physical art gallery, we want our Installation Gallery to be a place that will continually evolve, inspire and excite people.”
The home theater of Hollywood action film director Spiro Razatos was featured on an episode of Million Dollar Rooms – and is now featured in the JBL Synthesis Installation Gallery. Designed and built by integrator Hollywood Home Theatre, the widescreen “Spirovision” theater combines the retro look of classic movie houses with state-of-the-art audio and video components, such as a complete JBL Synthesis multichannel audio system.
Middleburg Heights, OH systems integrator Audio Video Interiors is another custom installer featuring two projects in the gallery. Blue and white neon lights illuminate the interior from the front wall, ceiling and seating areas, as part of a distinctive look that won the theater a “Home of the Year” award. The theater is outfitted with JBL Synthesis loudspeakers and electronics; like all JBL Synthesis systems, it is custom-calibrated and tuned to the room in which it is installed to achieve accurate frequency response and extraordinary sonic realism. The second installation features a Vegas-style neon light show theme with a JBL Synthesis sound system that was implemented due to its capability to be fine-tuned for the irregular-shaped room via its proprietary amplification and processing. This theater also captured a “Home of the Year” award.
