Creating Your Own Home Theater

Whether you are designing a family room, bachelor pad, or hangout spot for singles or couples, a home theater
There are a few key fundamentals to creating your own home
For a great in-theater experience, you will need the four basics. In addition, you will need to know how to install each, or where to find someone who can.

Next, the movie player is important. Although probably the least important of the four, it should be appropriate for the style of sound you are attempting to create. For example, even the most outstanding audio system will not do much to compensate for the poorer quality of a VHS movie player (if you can find one to purchase to begin with). Laserdisc systems are very popular, but a less sophisticated DVD player or Blu-ray player can be sufficient on a tighter budget.
The speaker system depends on the audio capacity of the home theater
For smaller rooms, you obviously need fewer speakers to produce a high quality sound. The placement of the speakers is what makes the most difference. Most systems offer between two and eight speakers for the room, depending on the system that you purchase.
Finally, the surround sound equipment you choose should be appropriate for the space you are working with. This can include a projector and receiver combination, amplifier, tuner, equalizer, and similar components that balance and clarify the sound coming from your chosen speaker system.
Higher end surround sound systems will produce higher quality sound, but can cost a great deal more initially. This is another component that should be chosen based on your budget.
Sometimes, it takes some experimentation to set up the system, especially in regards to speaker placement. Creating your own home theater
