Common Home Theater Mistakes to Avoid

 

A home theater is definitely not a small, unnoticeable investment, especially if you are going for a superior home theater system. With that in mind there are many mistakes people make when it comes to their home theater choices. What you want to do is learn from the mistakes of others rather than dooming yourself to repeat those that have been made so many times before. Below you’ll find information on some of the most often made mistakes when it comes to creating/setting up a great home theater for you and your family.

 

Windows

I’m not talking Microsoft. One thing that is a killer mistake for your home theater is a room full of windows. At night, every car passing by will prove distracting and during the day little can be enjoyed on your television from the sunlight pouring in. Even normal curtains allow some degree of light into the room, which will provide a distracting glare on you television screen. If you have no windowless rooms in your home you will at the very least want to install some heavy duty blackout drapes or curtains in order to prevent the glare and distraction that windows provide.

 

Cheap Speakers

Sound is one of the most important factors in imitating a high-quality theater movie viewing experience. If you have cheap speakers you will not receive the proper sound performance that you’ll need in order to achieve that experience. The first five or ten minutes of the movie Top Gun provides one of the best sound tests I’ve ever seen. Grab a copy of the DVD and take it with you to the stores, compare speakers using that DVD and go with the set that provides the best quality of sound delivery. It’s a good litmus test and you will be glad you did if you ever listen to a favorite movie on a friends inferior speakers.

 

Poor Installation

It makes absolutely no sense to invest thousands of dollars in a home theater system only to bring it home and do a poor job of installing it because you didn’t want to spring for the extra two hundred dollars for installation. Improper installation of your home theater will result in a far inferior quality than you paid for, which makes a high-quality system a complete waste of money. Pay the price now for professional installation if you have any doubts at all about your ability to properly install and set up your system.

 

Not Reading Directions

On the other hand if you decide to do your own installation the number one problem is the result of not reading the instructions for not only installation but also the operation of your home theater. We may feel that we are intuitive by nature but sometimes it helps to have a road map to follow. Instructions for installation and operating manuals are our road maps and reading them first will not only save a great deal of your own time but also increase your enjoyment of your new home theater system.

Avoiding these common mistakes can go a long way towards helping you get the most possible enjoyment from your home theater system. It’s amazing how much of a difference little things can make along the way. Good luck with the selection, purchase, and installation of your home theater. I hope you enjoy many wonderful hours of movie, television, and game watching on your new system.
