Set Up a Surround Sound System that Makes All the Difference
When you turn on a film or TV show to watch in your home theater, there are two main factors that make up your media. What you see on your screen and what you hear from it are both what work together to create your viewing experience.
4K TV screens and in-ceiling projectors can show you a flawless image, but what do you have going for your audio?
When you install a home theater system, a surround sound setup is a must. Every movie night will have an immersive atmosphere with crisp and clear sound during every scene from here on out in your Coronado, CA living space.
Keep on reading below to see how you can create the best layout for your home theater, and why it’s important you make audio as a high-priority.
Take Your Natural Acoustics into Consideration
Before you get started with your surround sound, check out your theater’s existing natural acoustics.
If your sound is being reflected or absorbed when you play a film, then that is a major factor to take note of. Here’s how it all works – if a room is unfurnished, sound will reflect off the surfaces. This creates an echo.
But with carpeting, furniture, and other pieces in a space, the fabrics and objects will absorb this sound. You can also optimize your room with mounted acoustical treatments.
We can describe these as fabric-covered wall panels that won’t let your sound reflect – instead, it’ll absorb this sound. And you can continue to watch your media without any interruptions.
Immerse Yourself in Sound
These acoustical treatments reduce your theater’s echoes, but you don’t want them to hinder your immersive audio.
Audio reflection is needed for smaller home theaters that rely on it for you to feel like your audio entirely surrounds you.
Too much sound reflection will cause an echo, but too many obstructions in the way can prevent everyone in the room from hearing the audio.
Vaulted ceilings with overhead speakers can make sure that every viewer hears the exact same thing as everyone else in the theater.
The Perfect Setup
Customizing your home theater is where all the fun is. But we recommend you follow a seating arrangement that contributes to your surround sound layout. That way, you can get the best audio experience every time.
Find and make the “sweet triangle” when installing your seats. This puts your screen at the center, with your seats located right between the far-most right and left speakers.
This setup ensures no one is blocking the screen or straining to hear the dialogue.
When you add new décor or furniture to your theater, always consider how it will affect your acoustics and sound reflection. Check out the best fabrics, materials, and how everything can make a difference.
