Part of a complete
home theater system is the surround sound. With surround sound, you can experience a movie
or television show as if you are on set and a part of the action. If you
are curious how surround sound works—and how it can benefit your
movie-watching experience—continue reading below.
One of the most important aspects of surround sound comes from splitting
the audio for whatever television show or movie you are watching. With
the right media, the audio can be split in several ways that are then
placed around you. These splices of audio help to fully immerse you in
the movie-watching experience. For example, a Western movie may split
the audio so that horses’ hooves come out of one speaker while actor
dialogue, musical score, and other audio come out of three other speakers.
In addition to split audio, your surround sound and home theater system
works best when you place speakers in a strategic manner around the room.
Most speaker and surround sound design will have two large speakers next
to the television and then three smaller speakers spaced evenly behind
your seats. By placing these home theater speakers around your theater
system and media room, you can experience all of the sounds at once and
in a fully-immersed manner.
The only way that your surround sound system will work properly is if you
use the right media. You can turn on your advanced home theater system
every time you watch a movie, but if the movie is not formatted to surround
sound you will not have the true experience. To utilize your surround
sound in the correct manner, you must use the DVDs, Blu-rays, or digital
copies that have been formatted for surround sound systems.
