Crutchfield: What is a commercial audio system?
Our take on the Retail Store Sound System by Crutchfield's Jim Richardson
Music sets the tone for a great customer experience
Background music is just as critical to the success of your retail business as any other aspect of the store design. This cost-effective Atlas Sound system gets it right. See what our satisfied customers have to say.
The system includes six ceiling-mounted speakers, a good number for a small shop. Send us your floorplans, and your system designer will map out the best locations for the speakers.
The included AA35 70-volt mixer/amplifier powers six FAP62T ceiling speakers. Music is supplied by an optional network music player. Ask your advisor to recommend a music player that suits your needs. If more than six speakers are needed for good coverage in your shop, your designer may recommend a more powerful amp, such as the Atlas Sound AA60.
AA35 mixer amplifier
The Atlas Sound AA35 provides ample power for background music in a small retail business. Add an optional microphone if you'd like to make announcements. You can set the AA35 so the music mutes when the microphone is on. You can route any combination of inputs to a Zone 2 output for music on hold (MOH) in a telephone system. Covered by a 3-year warranty.

FAP62T ceiling speakers
The FAP62T features a 6" woofer for solid bass and coaxially mounted tweeter for crisp, clean highs. Mounting gear for tile and drywall ceilings is included. The 5-year warranty gives you peace of mind.
The music source
Ask your advisor about options for a music source. Rockbot, Pandora® and SiriusXM™ offer business music players that include the licenses you need to legally play music in your store. If you use a Sonos player, a standard CD player, or another consumer-grade music player, you should secure the appropriate licenses.
