Communication is vital to the health and growth of every institution and organization. It's effectiveness is enhanced by well-designed, correctly installed audio and visual equipment. "Bananas at Large" may be a funny name, but we're very serious when it comes to business. We have served the audio, visual and musical needs of institutions and individuals from our Marin County base for over 30 years. Our Installations are performed by licensed contractors, and we have access to experience designers as well as the engineering staff of our major suppliers. The result: systems work the first time, and keep working as long and as hard as required.
THE HALLMARK OF OUR INSTALLATIONS
We tailor each installation to the exact requirements of the individual client. We listen carefully, understand what you wish to accomplish, and only then do we design an appropriate solution. Because we have been in business since 1974, we offer a comprehensive selection of top-quality, high-value audio and video products. We choose among the top manufacturers for the best match between your needs and available equipment.
References are, of course, available on request.
DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME
Our systems are custom-engineered to meet any requirements, indoors and out. Designs are firmly grounded in scientific acoustic principles and measurements. We use only top-grade components, and all work is performed by fully licensed, bonded contractors. Equipment is always conscientiously and neatly installed, and wiring is properly routed and bundled. Our installations are made for decades of trouble-free service.
Before you commit to your next project, call us for an estimate and design consultation. You'll be pleased by the personal attention, and the care we take to arrive at a solution that makes as much sense to your budget as it does to your ears.
PERFORMANCE BY DESIGN
The Bose Modeler© Design Program allows our system designer to create a three-dimensional representation of your business or facility. A color printout then graphically depicts the sound system's characteristics, including loudness, sound coverage and speech intelligibility. The patented Modeler Design Program helps ensure you spend money only for the equipment you need, and even simulates the visual effect speakers and speaker clusters will have in your space.
Bose Installed Anywhere™ Outdoor Loudspeakers use patented technology for clear, intelligent paging and music with warmth and emotion in open-air settings. Bose technologies also deliver transparent speech, musical detail and uniform coverage, even in problematic interior spaces. Experience the advantage of Performance by Design.
The Audio/Visual Installation Division is a highly experienced team that brings decades of experience to bear on design and install challenges. Our group includes members of the Audio Engineering Society, graduates of the Synergistic Audio Concepts™ course and Pro Audio Seminars, and an on-staff Licensed Bose™ Modeling designer and certified EASE™ consultant. Bananas at Large is a fully licensed and bonded California contractor.
Equally important is the extensive field experience we've accumulated, including installations ranging from school gymnasiums, houses of worship, performance venues, recording studios and restaurant sound to an outdoor system for a touring rodeo. And years of on-the-road experience with live bands means we're intimately acquainted with the pitfalls of live sound.
