Here are 4 Considerations when planning for Surround Sound in Leland NC
What are the best options for the space?
Room size and the amount of space in the room will help determine the right surround sound system and layout for your media room.
Will you need a 5.1 or 7.1 System? Or Custom?
Typically, a 5.1 surround system, which is five speakers plus one subwoofer sound system, is suitable for square home theater or media rooms.
Other common surround sound systems include 6.1 and 7.1 (typically for rectangular rooms), which include additional rear speakers. Depending on the layout and uses for the room, it may require a combination of different components.
Surround Sound Placement Where should the speakers go?
Consider where you can put speakers and wires in an effort to determine how many can be incorporated into your system. The unique attributes of your walls, furniture, ceiling, amp, speaker wires… can impact the quality of sound significantly.
Speakers can be placed or hidden in the walls, on speaker stands, in bookends, in the ceiling, floor, and shelves.
What brand of surround sound speakers should I buy?
We recommend all our customers take the time to listen to the quality of different types and brands within their budget.
