Get the Best Sound for Your Home Theater Room

Home theater rooms come in all shapes and sizes and, for the most part, no two home theaters are quite the same. Size, shape, furniture, equipment, calibration and a host of other factors can impact overall sound quality. The sound system in a large, open living room must be set up very differently than the sound system in a smaller room that is dedicated to entertainment. While most people focus on the visual elements of a home theater system, keep in mind that sound can be just as important to the overall experience. Premium speaker quality makes the ordinary sound astounding!

Budgeting for Sound Quality 

Achieving great sound takes finesse and planning, which isn’t something that can be purchased at a retail box store. We carry a variety of speakers and can make the best recommendation for your budget once we evaluate your space and needs. Ask yourself, “How important is sound quality to our family?” If you are taking the time to have a home theater room or entertainment room devoted to watching shows, sports, and movies, you’ll want to invest in high-quality speakers to enjoy being a part of the true movie-going experience. After all, why watch a great movie unless you can really FEEL the sound?

Room Layout Can Impact Sound

The size and layout of your entertainment room can have an impact on the sound quality, so this should be a priority when setting up a home theater system. Vaulted ceilings, large wooden furniture, marble countertops, balconies, and the general material used in furniture, rugs, and walls can impact overall sound quality. Seating arrangements are even more important. Knowing just how to position surround sound speakers to avoid pointing directly at your audience is key. Wall and recessed ceiling speakers add for great surround sound. If your room has a large mounted television instead of a projector screen, adding a SONY soundbar or SONOS Playbar is a great option. 

Invest in the Best Home Theater Speakers

A professional will recommend the right technology, strategically find the best locations for speakers, and make the appropriate adjustments and calibrations to maximize the sound quality in each room. It is best to hire a technician with expertise in to pick the right products as well as the know-how to properly install and care for those products. As an authorized SONY dealer, we will sell you the product, deliver the item, and install it, all under warranty, for your peace of mind. With such a big investment to your home, you want to make sure your investment is protected. This is not the time to try to Youtube something and have a DIY project. Although we have fixed mishaps for customers, it is our hope that a project this size is done correctly from the beginning, so you can spend your time enjoying your entertainment space instead of trying to google how best to fix a costly mistake.

Best Audio Equipment Manufacturers

A growing number of requests for outdoor home theater systems has pushed us towards incorporating outdoor speaker manufacturers like Coastal Source for our customers, although the vast majority still want their TV inside. While global electronic giants like Sony set the standard for quality and affordability, other innovative companies like Sonos are pushing the sound barrier in the field of “Smart Theater Technology,” allowing customers to stream music accounts from their smartphone directly to speakers all over the house.
