Home Theater Sound: "Ah, Listen to That"

Did you ever wonder why Movie Theaters exist after all the advances made in home theater electronics and technology? Is it because the American public spends big bucks each year just to watch the latest films? Are they obligated to see a certain movie?

Are you saying it’s a part American culture? Both questions are false. People will spend untold sums of money to see the latest movies. This is due to the cinema experience.

The visual quality of the big screen. Moviegoers are able to recall the cinema’s visual quality and the immersive, life-like surround sound. While we can recreate the large screen experience quite easily, the immersive sound of the movie theatre’s surround sound is still something many people don’t get.

When it comes to reproducing the theater sound at home, we need to be aware that different speaker brands have differing tonal qualities. Each brand will have a unique sound, regardless of how slight it may appear on the specification sheet.

This is due in part to the fact that different manufacturers use different materials to create their speakers.

We need to be aware that measured sound is not the same as actual sound. Measured sound refers only to the numbers printed on or included with the speakers. These numbers include frequency range, decibel (db), range and so forth. If you have the chance, actual sound is what the speaker actually sounds like to your ear.

It is always better if you listen to speakers before purchasing them. It is important to listen before buying a set of speakers.

It is important to understand the meanings of surround sound terms 5.1 and 7.1. The number of speakers the amplifier or amp can send sound to is called 5.1. You also have 5 speakers, 1 sub-woofer. If you are 7.1, then you would have 7 speakers plus 1 sub-woofer.

When it comes to placement of speakers, it is important to understand the number of speakers in your system. Here are some things to remember when placing your speakers. First, your sofa, chair, or armchair should be in line with the center of the speaker system.

The front speakers should be placed 6-8 feet apart and at an angle so that the sound is directed directly to your position. The speakers should be far enough away from walls to ensure that sound from the back doesn’t reflect off the walls, which can degrade the sound from the front.

The same applies to the rear speakers. The center speaker should be located at the bottom of your TV and point straight to your seat. The two additional speakers in the 7.1 system are side speakers. They should be placed halfway between each rear and front speaker and point directly at you.

Most people mistakenly place the sub-woofer next to the speaker, thinking that it will enhance their enjoyment of the bass. The sub-woofer should be placed near a hollow wall to allow the bass sound to travel through the room.

A home theater built in a box is an easier and more cost-effective way to build your home theater sound system. You will need to purchase each component separately to recreate the movie theater sound system. It can be costly and time-consuming, but it is well worth the investment when you experience the amazing sound quality. These simple tips will help you to say, “Ah! Listen to that!”
