1. Maintaining your projector

    Investing in a piece of equipment like a projector is not something you do every day. Similar to your car, it’s not going to run as well as the day you bought it, if you don’t show it some TLC. Making sure you keep your projector in excellent condition will help to extend both its’ working life and your enjoyment. We recommend you do these activities on average every 2-3 months. These tasks should not be completed whilst the projector is running, and at least 30 minutes after use, to allow for the bulb to cool.

These microphones' cardioid pickup pattern is designed to capture the source signal, such as a guitar amplifier or vocalist, while shunning off-axis sound.

  5. How to install in-ceiling speakers


    I wanted to install some speakers in the kids upstairs “playroom”, because until now any music they wanted to listen to was from their ipods and portable stereos.

  9. Can I mount a TV outdoors?

    Over the last 20 years or so, we have seen a surge in “Outdoor Entertaining” areas in new and renovated homes. This means different things to different people.
