Place Speakers on Shelves

If you want to increase the sound of your Flint Audio Video home theater while also blending in with your style, then you should look at shelves. You can set up speakers so that dialogue, sound effects, and other audio is seamlessly coming from several areas. You can pull this off with floor-standing speakers, but the better approach is to hide speakers in open spaces like shelves on your walls. The best place to put these shelves would be to the left and right of the TV. Of course, you may have to hide cables by drilling into your walls. Some people use bookshelves instead of stand-alone shelving to hide cables and their speakers.

Best Setup for 3D Viewing

If you plan on watching a lot of 3D content, you also want a TV that can accurately display 3D movies. Your chair and couch should face forward to the television.

It’s a Go for All Angles

Flint Audio Video sells televisions that can be viewed from all angles, even some of the more extreme ones. You should be able to see a TV screen from the right, left, below, and above with ease. If you are shopping for a TV, you should make sure to check out every angle that you expect to have in your home theater. The perfect setup will require that your setup have all of the seats mapped first, so you can test each angle before you mount the television.

Mount It for Best Surround Sound

TV mount and audio soundOf course, the most difficult set up is for the ultimate surround sound. This means that you have six or more total audio channels. This includes speakers for the center, right, left, two for the rear and one or two subwoofers. The biggest challenge is where you’ll place the rear speakers. Though you may want to place speakers yourself, you may have a difficult time hiding cables and picking channels to seamlessly create the perfect sound for every scenario.

Avoiding Glare

If you are looking at bad angles, then you should also check how much light is going to hit the screen during different times of the day. Most home theaters are able to have curtains or windowless experience, so that you won’t get any glare at any time of the day. However, if you are turning any room into a home theater, then you should look for light patterns on the television. Lamps and track lighting may also cause a glare on your television as well. You should position your television to avoid glare from any direction, with all lights on.
