Finding the Right Setup for Your Home Theater Systems
Although the technology has advanced in recent years, the quality that you receive from your home theater system is still highly dependent on the way that you set it up. Setups that are put together incorrectly can sound jumble and will not provide you with the experience that was meant for you in the case of both movies and music. Finding the right home Theater system for you is only half the task. You will then have to figure out a way to set it up that meets the specifications that are outlined the user guide and also works with the design of your home.
Remember that the main speaker, which is known as the house speaker, is the most important piece of the puzzle when you go to create a home theater system. It is the main speaker that is responsible for delivering high quality sound to those that are listening. These speakers usually come with a number of different components including wide ranges, woofers, tweeters and in many of the more expensive setups, sub-woofers. They are designed to deal with a wide range of different frequencies and are crafted to give you the best possible sound.
Center Channel Speaker Setup
The Center channel speaker is used to give you a great deal of the soundtrack to movies, and also is responsible for all of the dialogue, unless you have surround sound and someone is yelling behind or in front of the direction the camera is facing in the movie. It is important that you get the placement of the center speaker right.
Left and right Speaker Setup
The center channel speaker is also accompanied by left and right speakers. In most systems, these speakers may be responsible for broadcasting a bit of the soundtrack, but often times will not deliver any dialogue and will be responsible for producing many of the sound special effects including explosions and gun shots among others.
Surround Sound Speaker Setup
Depending on the system that you purchase, these speakers may also come with a set of surround sound speakers that are mostly used to create an atmospheric feel to the movie. These speakers will give you the sounds of feet running on a wet pavement, rain drops hitting a window or even the sound of wind. Although not all systems come with surround speakers, many of them do in this day and age and they can be that extra necessary piece to complete your home Theater experience.
Your chosen home Theater system might also come with a sub-woofer. Sub-woofers will deliver all of the base and will give that extra “thump” to the explosions and other loud noises that are present in most movies. A well placed sub-woofer along with a solid set of surround speakers can almost make it seem as if you have a full Theater in your home, which is really the reason why you bought the home Theater system in the first place, right?
