Good for you! you go! but after some failed attempts and when things aren’t definitely as easy as you thought. Then you re-evaluate the idea of hiring a home theater professional installer or maybe it’s about time to start watching DIY speaker calibration video on Youtube.

Where to really start this home theater project clouds your mind, then as a second thought you realize you reconsider all the hard work needed when looking for home theater installation services in Houston, TX . Then At that moment, you actually are presuming that you have purchased a home theater audio system that may be too advanced technologically speaking than what you initially thought and it may be an impossible task to install it but then you finally make your mind and get all hands on board. You start by actually preping the work area to protect your furniture from any accidents and moving all the heavy furniture out of the way before beginning the actual installation process. The you open the users manual for more specific clues that likely came along with the home theater audio system package you got.

The many things to keep in mind with a surround sound system or a surround system installation is that nothing at all is going to work if the people seating in the room don’t get that immersive feel a surround sound audio system delivers by locating the speakers correctly. Nonetheless, you make sure that the other home theater components are located where they are supposed to be. You start with the AV receiver before starting to team up with the speakers. Particularly since you are a rookie and this is your very first system you chose a super advanced AV receiver, that comes with the Bluetooth capabilities, WiFi and all the whistles. Then you realize that the AVR has a lot of ports! yes a lot! and now wonder if you are using the correct slots. Fortunately is actually that a lot of devices have the ‘slots’ properly tagged for merely this function.

Once you have the receiver connected you begin placing audio speakers. If you went with the standard 5.1 home theater stereo system you should possess 6 sound speakers consisting of 2 front speakers, 2 rear speakers, 1 center speaker and 1 subwoofer. This is a really good unit to begin with and also (if you bought your AVR wisely, with zone 2 capabilities) are going to leave behind area for development and expansion in the future. You certainly begin with all the guidelines for the positioning of the 6 sound speakers for a 5.1 sound system as well as broaden those instructions to expand the secondary zone later.

While this really isn’t an excessively complex idea you will be blown away at the amount of people who have their surround sound systems improperly put together when you entertained that idea in your mind.

With the 5.1 channel receiver you will move the rear speakers as well as front speakers to let the audio waves expand. If you at that point think about updating from a 5.1 to a 7.1 surround sound system you will certainly install the additional 2 middle speakers to the middle of the room to obtain that extra layer of audio delivered by those to additional channels of audio.
