Tips For Installing A Home Theater System In Your Spare Bedroom

If your home has a spare bedroom that you have decided to convert into a home theater, then there are many things you need to do to ensure that you get the best sound and utilization of the space. To this end, here are some tips you should follow when installing your new home theater system:

Tip: Don't Break the Bank Buying Cable

While your home theater system relies on its cables to move power and sound around the room, you should not be convinced that more expensive cables will do a better job. In fact, most basic, inexpensive cables will do the job just fine for all but the largest home theater systems. Save your money and use it for components rather than expensive cables that will not give you a good return on your investment.

Tip: Use Risers to Ensure Every Family Member Can Clearly See the Screen

To ensure that every member of your family can clearly see the screen from any seat, use risers to raise up theater seats that are in the second row. This configuration is often called "stadium seating" and is ideal because it prevents fights over who will sit in the "best" seats while watching movies in a group. Stadium seating allows even smaller children the ability to see from the back row.

Tip: Add Soundproofing Material to Help Contain the Audio

Since the audio for your new home theater will have the tendency to travel throughout your home, you should plan for this and add soundproofing material on the walls of your new home theater. Soundproofing will ensure that your family members will not be inconvenienced in other parts of your home while the theater is in use. If your theater is on the main level of your home and there are bedrooms above, you should also soundproof the ceiling. 

Tip: Pull Extra Wires While Your Walls are Open

Finally, while you have your walls open to pull all of the wires necessary for your home's new theater system, go the extra mile and pull some extra wires. As you add more components to your theater system at a later date, you will be very glad that you have extra wires available that you can use. Having to go back and pull more wires once your walls are sealed back up will result in a lot of added work that you can easily prevent with this simple tip.
