Alex Tagliani Smart Home: Alex Learns the Details of Surround Sound

Integrator Homesync explains the Dolby 9.2.4 object-based surround sound system going in to Indy Car driver Alex Tagliani's new smart home.

Just before he left for the Indianapolis 500 race, famed racecar driver Alex Tagliani took a moment with integrator Dean Winters of Homesync in Montreal to talk about the plans for his new Dolby Atmos 9.2.4 home theater.

The room is not a dedicated home theater, but part of a great room that will include mannequins of Tagliani's various racing suits behind plexiglass. In this video, Winters shows Tagliani the Bowers & Wilkins speakers and backboxes and then explains the 9.2.4 Dolby Atmos audio set up and how it will work.

Tagliani has similar questions that many high-end homeowners might face. He understands the need for the technology but is immediately intimidated by the size of the backboxes and all the boxes that are being stacked around his new home. 

By the way, Tagliani finished in a respectable 17th place in the Indy 500 after having to start in the back row due to a crash during the time trials.
