We all love watching movies, especially the ones that just came out at the box office. Be it the Avengers, the Quiet Space, or Daddy’s Home, movies has left a lasting impact on family entertainment for years. Everyone remembers the exhilarating feeling they had while sneaking their favorite candy into the cinema with their parents as a kid. Today, doing that isn’t necessary because families can easily set up their own top of the line home theater system. These are great because going out as a family can be extremely expensive, especially at the movies where food and drinks are impossible to afford on an everyday budget. Home theaters also allow you to sit back on the couch with your family and relax. You don’t have to worry about any crying kids who aren’t yours, sketchy movie seats, and aisles left dirty with buttery popcorn.
In order to build your own dream home theater system, you’ll have to invest in the right tools to make it come to light. Having a quality audio system, especially a surround sound system, is key for hearing all the action your movies of choice have to offer. Purchasing a modern projector and wireless control system is also important to ensure the visuals are up to par. Let’s discuss what the do’s and don’ts are of installing your own personal theater system.
Sound Is King
Gone are the days of watching movies from box televisions and mediocre sound systems. Today, wireless surround sound systems are the popular choice among consumers building home theater systems because they provide not only booming sound, but are reliable and easy to move around a specific room. Several technology brands carry their own line of surround sound systems, it’s up to you to pick what best fits your space and your theater budget as well. What most people recommend is to invest in a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound, meaning there’s at three front speakers set up in the room, one on the left, one on the right, and two in the back in the least. They’re not too big either like the old days so you’ll still have enough wiggle room in your theater to move around. This allows the set-up and installation much easier, while improving the overall aesthetic of your home theater.
Why are wireless systems so great? Well, they’ve made major improvements in the last few years thanks to sound engineers who were fed up with the bulky systems from before. Wireless speakers offer audio that can be broadcasted over Wi-Fi and channel a great deal of information to the system overall. Additionally, recent improvements in Bluetooth technology also gives the surround sound systems the ability to coordinate with your phone or computer if you wish to control it from those devices. If you’re looking at speakers soon, don’t forget about soundproofing your area. If you have noisy kids who are playing around or watching a movie in the theater during the day, you definitely don’t want to hear it from upstairs as you’re trying to focus.
Pick Your Visuals
Having a modern projector is the key to enjoying any movie you wish. These can blow up the visuals of a film wider than a standard TV, and today they come in a variety of LED models that showcase colossal color. They also last longer much longer than traditional projector lamps, so you’ll be able to watch your favorite movie over and over without having to spend extra dollars on replacing the device. Another great choice is purchasing a smart home theater project, which works well is a quality audio system. While these projectors aren’t all consistent across the market with what features they offer, most of them do have the ability to connect to Bluetooth and the internet to access your favorite streaming service. This means you can binge watch your favorite show, Youtube influencer videos, and other media without being confined to your phone or laptop screen. If you have teenagers or young adults at home, buying a smart home project for this reason will be an exceptionally popular decision.
Find Your Comfort
The main reason most families invest in all the latest surround sound systems, projects, and streaming services is for comfort. Comfort is a significant amenity in your home theater as it influences the type of experience you’ll have while watching a movie overall. You wouldn’t want to place fold up chairs or bean bags in a modern space that you already spent thousands of dollars on. While the majority of home theater furniture decisions will be based on the size of your room, consider how much space your quality audio system takes up first. From there, feel free to look into top of the line leather home theater seating or remote control chairs that make you feel like royalty. If you prefer to sit with your family together, look into purchasing a large sofa instead that is durable and comfortable enough to sit on for hours.
Once you invest in your technology and a proper remote control to coordinate all of its functions, it’s time to enjoy yourself. Don’t be afraid to spend extra on your home theater as it can increase the value of your home and will last you years. Many large houses on the real estate market today that include a theater or quality audio system are hot choices for buyers. Most importantly, your spouse and children can watch all their favorite characters during any moment of the day for free. That incredible flexibility is the best benefit of all!
