Foreground Music and Background Music Systems

A commercial sound system or music system should be carefully designed around the nature of your business.  Generally speaking there are two broad types of music to consider; foreground music or background music.

Foreground Music Systems

Foreground music is meant for active listening.  Foreground music can grab your customers' attention, excite them, and engage them.  Foreground music is a very powerful tool to use for branding.  Foreground music can play a big part in defining your image, drawing the right people and can even be used for advertising. 

Background Music Systems

As opposed to foreground music, background music can bathe your customers in luxurious, plush sounds that will allow them to enjoy their experience while focusing on their work or your merchandise. Research has shown that background music, though many times not consciously noticed by customers, has psychological effects on people and can lead to increased time in stores and increased sales.
Regardless of whether foreground music or background music is the correct style for your business, a music system expertly installed by Torrence Sound puts customers at ease. Several studies have shown an up to 20% increase in customer purchases when music is played. Your retail music system is a powerful tool in deepening your relationship with your customers.
