A home theater can bring the cinema experience to you in the comfort of your own home. For many, creating an entertainment system for their home is overwhelming. However, it is relatively easy with the proper set of guidelines.

Hi-fi technology can help you be connected to the real-time experience. However, the most effective home theaters (home cinemas) have a slightly different goal: they take you to a completely different world. Home theaters that are properly designed and installed are built to reproduce the sound, visual, and even the acoustics of a cinema and take you away from the interior of your living room and into a vast, expansive space. In addition, if you do not live in a location that has a top-quality cinema, the home theater experience will sound better!

If the system is functioning just as it should and you feel like you are ‘there in the film’s world – equally engaged in the film as could be sitting in the ideal seat in the most prestigious cinema that you can find, and with the added benefit that you can better control the environment (and the volume of your other guests).

The most enjoyable home theater experience is derived from properly matched, installed speaker systems that can accurately reproduce the full range of the most challenging soundtracks for movies. We believe that the best home theater experience is about more than the basic “boom and bang” stereotypical terms used by some circles to describe sound in a home theater.

We believe that a quality system must also capture the emotional impact of voice, the details in a surround sound effect – whether in the front, behind, or even over you – or the smallest nuance of the music score. It must relay each sonic element with the same precision as high-end hi-fi. That is why we create home theater speakers with the same attention and care as our hi-fi-specific designs and the reason our hi-fi equipment can excel in a theater-like setting.

What is a Home Theater System?

The home theater system is an audio and visual device set up inside your home that mimics the cinema experience. A high-quality home theater system could provide a thrilling experience than smaller multiplex screens for cinema.

A home theater is an entertainment option suitable for watching movies and TV at home. It also provides additional excitement. For many, the local cinema is just a distant memory. It is possible to stream relatively recent films and binge-watch TV at home in peace.

By leveraging cinemas’ sound and image technology and adapting them to the living space, the audio and TV industry has made it possible to recreate the movie theater experience at home.

How to set up my home theater system?

Suppose you’ve chosen to purchase speakers from the exact brand for each home theater system channel. The most important step to improving your home theater is positioning them in the right place in your room. There are international guidelines for multichannel recording and the placement of speakers for playback, commonly used by studio engineers for mixing surround sound for music and film. They’re efficient but too complex for homes with a lot that require identical speaker placement for every channel. It is difficult if your setup utilizes floor-standing speakers for two fronts, left and right. Furthermore, the setup isn’t considering the requirement for a system that can be installed on one or the other side of a chimney breast or fit around windows and doors.

Step -1 

Place the rear surround speakers above the walls and tilted towards the position you are listening from (this applies to two, three, or even four rear speakers). If you’re not planning to install your speakers on the wall, consider using high-quality stands instead. It is important to ensure that you don’t place those speakers in the back too close. Height can add natural acoustic delay to the audio. There is one exception: the only is a dedicated surround speaker, which blasts the sound in multiple directions simultaneously. Such designs can be set up alongside or behind the listener’s position; however, they should not be tilted to the left or right.

Step-2

Place your center speaker in the same horizontal plane as your main right and left speakers – underneath the television as it is possible. Try to align the tweeter with the tweeter of other front speakers on your system. If you can’t, you can borrow or purchase laser pointers and set their tilt angle to ensure that it points to the same location on your seat as the other speakers. It could be very effective since central speakers are usually set to deliver sound to the kneecaps of the listener rather than their ears. It can improve clarity. It can be prevented with just a slight tilt of your central speaker.

Step-3

Further adjustments to the center speaker can aid in focusing your system’s sound field. If you can imagine a narrow curving arc that flows through the space between the main right and left speakers, the central speaker should be placed near its peak so that it is right in the center of your stereo picture produced through your speakers and a little behind them. The center speaker should be at a distance that is equal between them or as close to them as is practical to be.

Step-4

Place your subwoofer in the same spot, the spot you usually sit. Unplug the speakers (at the receiver’s end); however, keep the subwoofer connected and connected. You can play a loud piece of music that has an unbeatable bass. Move around the room, focusing on the sound of bass while you move. It will be more intense in three or four places within the room (often, they are in corners). Place the subwoofer in one of these locations, referred to as “nodes.” If it turns out that it is behind more than in front, You may have to reverse the sub’s polarity with an easy switch that is attached to the control panel of its amplifier.

Step -5

When setting up the system, the first thing to think about is teaching your surround receiver or amplifier about your speakers. It’s necessary to determine the number of speakers you own and their size (and consequently, how much or little bass they’ll be able to take) and whether you have two, one, or no subwoofers. It can be done through the “speaker setup” menu of most electronics typically and involves making an easy choice between large speakers capable of replaying deep bass – and smaller designs. In certain instances, you’ll also have the option to select a specific crossover that will precisely set the time when your speakers will hand over the responsibility of low frequency to the subwoofer. Check the manual included in your speakers for additional information here.

Step-6

In the final step, you’ll need to determine the volume levels of each speaker and your subwoofer. It can be done with the built-in test tone. It is a great tool to make sure that you’ve hooked each speaker correctly and set each speaker to an equal, consistent volume throughout the space. Tests should be conducted with a good pressure gauge, setting just PS20 online. Alternatively, you could use a no-cost application on your smartphone that is far more accurate.

Set the gauge to a weighting of ‘C’ and ‘Slow.’ If using a separate meter, place the microphone in the direction of upwards rather than towards the speakers. Switch on the test tone of your receiver and increase the volume on the main dial until you see an indication from the front left speaker that is 75dB. Use the volume trims on the remote of your receiver to alter the tone of each speaker in your system until the device is at the same level.

If it seems like much work, you’ll see why automatic calibration systems are becoming so sought-after. Be aware. However, if you’re not entirely satisfied with the automated setting-up results, you could alter them to get the desired sound that is, after all, the primary factor in pleasure. In the end, you can always reset things to the original settings to avoid any awkwardness whenever you want.
