Article Body:
Having the right speakers for your home theater room – correct size,
proper sound output, and fitting aesthetics – brings the entire room
together in one cohesive piece. When looking at new home speakers,
consider the size of the room, the appropriate speaker size, the number
of speakers that you are going to be using, and what is within your price
range for sound equipment. You may also want to consider more aesthetic
items like speaker placement and the overall look of your home theater
design with speakers.

When it comes to finding home speakers, the first thing to do is analyze
the size of the room. You want to take a good look at how much space you
have, and then do some calculations about your speaker placement and
number of speakers. For instance, if the room is very large, you are
going to want to place your speakers much higher. If it is small,
speakers on the floor will cut down on echoes and make it easier to align
your entire sound system. In-wall speakers are another option that will
allow you to have quality sound from all parts of the room without
dealing with the potential clutter of floor standing speakers.

The next thing to consider is the size of the speakers themselves. Each
speaker type (front, side, subwoofer) come in different sizes depending
on how they will be mounted, the quality of the sound and the type of
application they will be used for. Larger speakers may be able to give
you richer, deeper sound but that sort of sound may not be necessary for
the size and layout of your particular home theater room. Additionally,
quality speaker manufacturers are improving on the sound quality of
smaller speakers every year. Large room sound may soon not require the
use of large floorstanding or cabinet speakers. Consider the size of the
in-wall speakers you prefer as well. The size of the speaker will equate
to the portion of your wall that will need to be removed in order to
place the speakers. A custom home theater installer can help with
defining the parameters for the home theater speaker size best for your
home.

The number of speakers your room needs is another item to consider.
Several of the speaker brands offer different lines of speakers that
include three, five or seven speaker configurations. Consult with a home
audio technician or custom installer about what is the best proportion
for your home if you are unsure of what you will need.

Speakers for any home theater are no longer outside of many people’s
reach. Home theater equipment is available in a wide range of pricing
suitable for any budget. Quality speakers by top-brands are available
within the range of average home owners and top of the line speakers are
also available for audio junkies who have a fine ear for sound and a
fascination with the technology. Don’t let pricing stop you from getting
the right type of speakers for your home. Talk to a custom installer
about your price range and what is most important to you when it comes to
the sound quality in your home theater.

Consider these important items as you develop your home theater’s audio
system.
