Mistakes to Avoid When Planning Your Custom Home Theater

Home theater systems and home theater rooms give you the chance to relax at home while watching your favorite movies and shows. However, you may not relax if you make common mistakes like placing the television screen in the wrong location. Let’s take a look at other common mistakes you can avoid for your custom home theater.

Mistake #1: The television is placed in an awkward position.

There are several ways that you can position your television screen so it becomes awkward to watch. If you hang the screen on the wall, then keep in mind where your chairs are located. If you have to strain your head up to watch the screen, then it is in an awkward position. If people can only reach other areas of your home by walking in front of the screen, then it should be moved to a different location.

Mistake #2: The equipment is not connected to a surge protector.

You will likely put a lot of time and effort into planning your home theater system, so it should be protected at all costs. Never forget to use surge protectors for all of your cords. Surge protectors will keep your investment, and your home, safe in the event of a power surge from a storm or faulty wiring.

Mistake #3: The space is too small for surround sound.

Home theater speakers and wireless surround sound should be installed in key areas around your home theater room. If the room is not big enough, or your speakers are hidden behind furniture, then you will not gain the full benefits of a surround system. Consider the size of your theater room and the potential placement of your surround system before installing it.
