Tips on Building a Home Theatre

Magnetiks Administrator - Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Creating a Home Theater has become one of the hottest topics in home improvement. But unlike other home improvement projects, a home theater is an investment in personal entertainment.

Creating a home theater is not a simple task. In fact, if you are planning an elaborate system you should contact a home theater specialist who can help choose and install the system that's right for you.  Using skilled professionals, The Goode Fix can turn your media room into a custom home theater infused with your style and personality. 

Whether you are tackling a home theater project yourself or hiring a pro, it is vital to know about the different elements of home theater before investing any money.

The Evolution of Home Theater

When most people think about "watching" a movie they think of the visual image. But what really differentiates a home theater from a big screen television is the audio. This doesn't mean the picture isn't important, only that image and sound come together in home theater to create a richer experience.

The concept of a better theater experience grew from Star Wars director George Lucas' desire for a better film soundtrack. Using Dolby Laboratories sound technology, Lucasfilm accomplished that goal then turned to making the "ideal" theater environment using a technology called THX®.

Lucas then began the notion of reproducing theater-quality sound in the home. The main obstacle he faced was that movie soundtracks were mixed for the spaciousness of a cinema. Therefore, something had to be able to convert cinema sound to the smaller home theater environment.

Basic Home Theater Components

The very basic elements necessary to create a home theater are a 27" or larger television, a movie playing device, speakers, and a surround sound capable stereo receiver.

Windell Home Remodeling can convert your media room into a custom theater room with all of the bells and whistles.  Custom cabinets, built-in bar areas, staggered floors, and custom finishes are common elements that make your media room feel more like a movie theater than just a place to watch TV.  The sky is the limit in electronics options, and Windell's team of professionals handle the design and installation of all components of the home theater.

A general rule in home theater is that you get what you pay for. It is possible to put together a lower-end home theater system from scratch for under $5000. But there are some upgrades that are worth the extra money. A basic system can be upgraded by going with a larger television or projection system, Blue Ray player, six quality speakers, and a Dolby Pro Logic® or Dolby Digital® receiver.
