On all new, qualified LAR systems purchased directly from an authorized LAR dealer; LAR will repair or replace defective controller amplifiers and speakers within 10 years of the purchase date. Abuse isn’t covered… If drinks, fog juice, rain, flooding, lightning, rodents, smoke, fire or other damage causes your system to fail, we offer a substantial existing customer discount.
A qualified system is one that uses an LAR controller with certified speakers using appropriate gauge wire in the correct configuration. Ask your dealer or LAR directly if you’d like to DIY a qualified system.
LAR auditions hundreds of speakers from many manufacturers. We rigorously test and modify select speakers to withstand extreme duty cycle operation. This would be much easier if we were “less picky” about sound quality, but great sound is our primary concern.
We can certainly test a speaker to see if it meets our standards. Please call us to make arrangements. Often, modifications are necessary to internal components to insure extreme duty cycle and optimal sound quality. These modifications may make the speaker more expensive.
Yes, all our systems are designed to sound amazing at full volume without distortion or concerns about damaging the gear. Our systems are hand built to work at full volume, 365 days a year for at least 10 years without issues (some have been in constant operation for over 30 years).

Can and should are different answers depending on your situation. Just about any audio source can be used to produce music on an LAR system. If your business has a need for copyrighted music that will heard by the public, we recommend a music service that includes the appropriate licensing. Spotify does not offer a commercial license, but we have services that will work with Spotify playlists and include a license.
