How To Choose Your Next Surround Sound Home Theater System

Picking the right sized Big Screen TV for your needs can’t be boiled down to a simple formula. There are many things to consider before you’re ready to make a purchase.

Yet again, there are various brands and varying price ranges, but a person needs to determine a budget beforehand and decide which features are important, such as sixty hertz versus one hundred and twenty hertz in a television. As for the sound system, there are theater system packages that include a surround sound. These usually have good quality sound, but one way to maximize the surround sound experience is to purchase a receiver and pick and choose the speakers that you want. Yet again, research the types of receivers and their features if you choose this route to assure that you have the connections that you want or need for your system.

When you install your own home theater, you have a lot of options as to what equipment to buy. You can purchase a “home theater in a box” setup which provides you with everything you need. This is a great idea of you don’t know what components you want or you simply want the convenience of one stop shopping and the assurance that all your components will fit and work together.

Wire your basement components so they’ll work off the components from your t.v. area upstairs. Absolutely, positively, WILL NOT be seen from the basement. The big downside is running up and down the stairs constantly!

A Home theater with all the “bells and whistles” is going to use up more power than your average room in the house. Will your power supply be able to handle the load? Ask a professional for advice but most homes will be able to handle the extra power. Power outlets…do you have enough? Again, very important to make sure you have more than you need. Believe me, you’ll need them at some stage.

What do you see? Is the front door wide open? Can you see into the windows and observe the nice and expensive Commercial Audio Video that you just bought? How many entry points can you find on your house? Include all of the doors, including the basement. Now, count the windows that are both downstairs and upstairs. Just because a window is on the second floor doesn’t mean that an enterprising thief will ignore it if it will provide access into the home.

Prep up-prepare all the tools and materials that you will need.Make sure that everything is organized so it’s easy for you to access.You can start assembling some things before the actual set up so it will lessen the hassle.

The final step is to set up your home theater system. This will include connecting your DVD player to the projector/video output and to the AV receiver, as well as connecting the speakers to your receiver. If you want to hide the wires then you can set the speakers on a shelf and run the wires behind the drywall. This option can be a little tricky if you don’t know what you are doing, but it is not difficult to do.
