  • Television set

  • DVD player

  • Digital video recorder (VCR) or DVR

  • Surround Sound Receiver

  • Speakers

  • Connectors and cables

  • Surge Protector


  • Considerations for Home Theater

The best tip to consider when purchasing the right home theatre system is to be aware of your senses. Don't rely on advertising hype. Instead, look at the things that feel good on your skin. Remember to consider:

  • Room Size: Install the speakers and televisions according to the space.

  • Seating: Be aware of the distance and angle to the speakers and screen.

  • Acoustics is based on the design of the room, its materials, and furnishings.

  • Lighting: When putting the TV in a position, take into consideration windows and room lighting.

  • Ventilation Ensuring adequate cooling for both the participants and their components.


  • Connectors and cables

It could make a significant difference in picture and sound quality. It doesn't take a lot to get the best connectors. However, it would help to avoid those that are the most costly.


  • Composite video connector: Carries the video signal to the television by using standard stereo (RCA) cables, which are also used for audio. They're not as effective as other connections, however, they produce audio and color.

  • RF Cable This cable is used to connect TV cables. It can be used to carry video and audio signals. You can select between screw-on and push-on alternatives.


  • SVideo Connector: It has four pins, which separate the video signal into different channels, providing high-quality.

  • Component video connectors: These connectors, which are similar to s-video but separate the signal into several channels, provide better quality and a higher degree of separation. Each channel requires its RCA connector.

  • High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI). High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) provides the highest quality sound and image. HD-compatible TVs need to receive the digital signal.

  • Fiber Optic Cable for Acoustic: (TOSLINK) This cable makes use of a light beam inside fiber optic cables made of plastic to connect the receiver to the audio source.


  • Connecting

Although every system is different It's useful to think of cables as paths that lead from one device to another. The purpose of a cable is to transmit the audio/video signal from one device (output) into an additional device (input). To take in the video signal, the DVD player's output port needs to connect to the input port of the television.


Every component of audio or video has to be connected. The speaker wire connects the receiver to the speakers. Place the wire in the retainer and close it. Be sure that the polarity of the wire is the same in the receiver and speaker.


  • Speaker Position

There are three fundamental HTS speaker configurations: 5.1, 6.1.1, and 7.1. The first number indicates the number of full-range speakers. The second number signifies the subwoofer that can handle low frequencies. The original 5.1 system was launched with five main speakers and a subwoofer and is the most sought-after.


The most important aspect of home theater is the placement of speakers. These are the guidelines to help you set up your home theater system.


  • 5.1 System: Place the surround sound speakers either to the left or right of the seating space. The speakers must be set at a 30-degree angle from the seating. The subwoofer should be on one side and the central speaker is located between the TV and the wall.


  • 6.1 System Speakers are set up in the same manner as 5.1 however, they have an additional rear speaker that is located directly behind the seating area.

  • 7.1 Systems: This setup looks identical to 5.1 with the exception that the speakers in the rear are located at an angle behind your audience.
