New homes make room for a home theater. This is a cool thing to have in the home. The goal of a home theater room is to use electronics in the home to recreate the actual experience of a real movie theater. The right component can make it happen. Get the right materials and get started.
Choosing a space
Before getting started with making the movie theater room, what room will be the chosen one? Will it be a used family room or an actual space dedicated to it (room additions, already working home theater rooms, etc)? A room not in use compared to an extension will not produce the same result. Windows cause light to shine thought and those windows must be covered to make sure no light shines through. Special draperies can solve that problem. A way to add movie theater effect is to paint the room black, but it is not necessary. Another thing to think about is how much you are willing to spend on having a home theater system in the home.
Projectors and other components
Basic electronics that are needed to make a home theater is a large television (at least 27 inches). Movies to watch, movie playing device (DVD is recommended but a computer from Dell.com with a projector will work just as well), speakers, stereo receiver that is surround sound, surge protector, universal remote and cables/connectors from every device, controlled light and a place to sit. With lighting there’s should be light sensors on the side or on the floor of the room. Universal remotes are there to control all electronics with one remote instead of four or five. With electronics you get what you pay for. If it comes at an inexpensive price it will bring crappy results. The more expensive the item, the better quality the item will produce.
After choosing the components it’s time to put it together. Installation is no easy task but if you follow the instructions this can at least go smoothly. The way to do it is to imagine a real movie theater and do it the same way. The television should be front and center, the seating arrangement is in rows, and the speakers should align with the television screen. There should be two in the back of the room to create the surround sound effect. If anything needs to be stacked on top of each other leave room in between for ventilation. This also makes installing easy. For seating arrangement it should be done in a slanted angle to make sure everyone can see. If cup holders and storage is not available in seats a person can add a side table to place food and drinks on. Test everything before viewing.
