Home Theater Surround Systems

When you choose to build a home theater or media room, you want it to have that explosive sound you would expect to hear at a movie theater. Quality sound is achievable through utilizing high-end home audio equipment. The audio system starts with speakers.

There are seven major speaker components in the best custom home theater systems. Those are:

  1. Center speaker
  2. Right forward speaker
  3. Left forward speaker
  4. Right rear speaker
  5. Left rear speaker
  6. Special effect speakers for Dolby Atmos
  7. Subwoofer

There are many options to choose from, but these are our favorite surround sound speaker brands.

Our experienced home theater team is here to help you select speakers you will love. We understand all the technological lingo and can help you choose one that works within your budget.

Factors to Consider for the Sound of Your Entertainment Experience

There are also a few other factors to contemplate that impact sound in your new home theater. Those include:

  • Speaker placement
  • Size and shape of room
  • Reliable home theater receiver

In all of our home theater projects, we will always conduct a room analysis to determine the optimal placement of speakers for the best sound.

Once you have all the right audio equipment, then you will want to focus on creating an amazing picture in your theater at home.

Home Theater Projection Systems

The first decision in deciding on a video system in your home theater installation is choosing a screen size. There are three major screen resolutions today: HD, ultra high definition (UDH), or 4K resolution. UDH provides a higher resolution than normal HD, and 4K provides an even higher resolution. Standard sizes for each resolution are the following:

  • HD – 1,920 by 1,080 pixels
  • UHD – 3,840 by 2,160 pixels
  • 4K – 4,096 by 2,160 pixels

Many people choose projectors as they allow for a larger screen and provide a theater experience at home. We recommend only the best brands in video projectors, which include:

  • Sony
  • Epson
