Here’s How to Upgrade Your Home Theater Sound System with Purpose

Home theater systems and the sound that makes them has gotten smaller, sharper, and richer. Although any video editor or filmmaker will tell you they want you to experience their work in theatres or on the largest screen possible, not as many focus on sound quality despite it being equally important to what appears on-screen. A 4K image, for example, isn’t worth a thing if sound-wise, it sucks.

Now imagine a home theater sound system where you hear every word of dialogue, every atmospheric detail, and every note of the soundtrack. Ideally, this is the sort of home theater sound you want to search for. Thankfully, contemporary surround sound systems and audio speakers are small and higher in quality than ever. You don’t need massive to win the day, nor does spending $1,000s equate to good sound. You can have excellent results with speakers significantly less in cost.

There are many ways you can go with upgrading home theater audio. Some choose to buy premium surround sound systems already configured and easily set up. Others meanwhile will purchase speakers and subwoofers that they themselves can easily move and position in accordance with what the room looks like. You can also start from scratch with some speaker wire, an amplifier, and go forth from there.

If what you want is surround sound and you refuse to look at anything less, search for a minimum 5.1 channel speaker system. The ‘5’ refers to a 5-speaker setup and the ‘1’ indicates a low-frequency effect channel which is a fancy way of saying ‘subwoofer’.

Using a surround sound system, you can mount the speakers against the wall, set them up on speaker stands, or alternatively position them on a table. Regardless of where you position yours, you will need to stick with strategy to ensure audio is moving correctly throughout the room, from the right angle and/or direction.

Can you use the audio channels from your own TV? Sure, lots of people do. This is very basic sounding audio though. If you really want to have an experience and fully immerse yourself in something you can feel in your bones, a home theater speaker and subwoofer far exceeds the limitations of any flat-screen.

For a lot of people upgrading their home theater systems, saving space is a must. For them, a Bluetooth stereo soundbar has the quality and functionality that’s well worth installing in a small room or condo apartment. If you want more than that, a pair of high-performance bookshelf speakers or home entertainment-friendly 50-watt multimedia desktop powered speakers also work. Needless to say, there are no rules. Choose what suits your budget and space.
