Setting up your home thearter the right way will give you and your family many hours of enjoyment. With home entertainment equipment becoming more and more advanced and the cost of going out for entertainment making it less realistic for many people, creating the perfect home theater is on the list of many homeowners.  Whether your budget is big or small, you can improve your home theater experience with a few simple tips and tricks.

Proper Placement Of Speakers And Screens

Your home theater speakers are designed to be placed in specific locations in relation to where you will be sitting in order to provide optimal sound.  The same goes for your television.  Each particular screen size has a proper viewing distance that will give the best picture quality.  Be sure to read the directions for your television and speakers.Surround sound systems have multiple speakers that should send sound to the ears from many directions at once, creating the sense of being inside the show or movie.  Follow the manufacturer’s directions, and mount or place your speakers in relation to where you will be sitting.

Wall-Mounting Your Television

Flat panel televisions are designed to be mounted easily on a wall, giving you more leeway in where you will place your screen.  Having your television professionally mounted is the best way to go if you want the wires from the components to be hidden-they will run them inside the walls.  This gives a much cleaner look.

A television mount that both telescopes and tilts will allow you to adjust the position of the viewing screen to your location.  This is great if you want to watch the screen while working in the kitchen or view it from a different area than normal seating.

Don’t Go Too Big

Buy the screen size and speaker system that is right for the size of your room.  A giant television will look too large in a small room, and you won’t be able to sit far enough back to get the right viewing distance.  Overpowering speakers will be too loud in a small room.  The opposite is true as well-a large room calls for a larger screen and more powerful speakers.

The right components and set-up will provide you with the best home theater experience possible, regardless of how much money you have available to put into it.
