Home theater systems have a lot of parts: whether you want speakers that aren’t easily visible or or remotes that control everything, installing your home theater system can be get complicated very quickly if you want it done right. If you want to be sure everything is installed correctly and with optimal placement, calling in an home theater expert can be a huge help.
What does a home theater installation expert look for when setting up your system?
- Location, location, location! Finding the best locations for every part of your home theater system depends on a lot of factors: equipment needs to be easy to access but also need to be close enough to a room’s wiring for good connections. Speakers need to be set high along a room’s wall, but they need to be installed in such a way that the cords are discreet or entirely hidden. When a technician is installing your home system, they’re keeping a checklist of where to place every piece of equipment.
- How to protect the equipment: It’s still common to install televisions over an outdoor fireplace, but the increased heat below and behind a mounted television set can damage it and lead to more frequent replacements. Installation experts aren’t just looking for a stable place to mount your screens and speakers; they’re evaluating the surrounding environment for sources of heat and potential damage, especially if your home theater system extends to the outside.
- What an outdoor theater needs to run smoothly: Outdoor systems are complicated. Regardless of who’s installing your system, they have to take into account temperature fluctuations and the extreme Texas weather, the likelihood of ants getting into equipment and causing damage, and how to position your screens to minimize glare.
Your home theater system should be set up just right to match your house, your family, and your programming. While home theater kits do exist for DIY installation, having a professional install your system gives you a wider range of equipment options and ensures that the installation is done with safety, placement, and your convenience in mind.
