When it comes to choosing a TV for the home theatre system, bigger is always the better. But most importantly, you should choose the TV based on the size of your room. You should scale the maximum number of people who would be viewing the screen from a particular distance to get the maximum enjoyment.

In addition to the size of the TV, it is also important to keep a check on the type of lighting in the room that you would be keeping. It lets you lower the strain on eyes while watching TV and make the picture quality much better. Plasma or LCD– you should make the choice accordingly. Plasma is cost effective and best for dark rooms. LCD is good for brighter rooms and induce low power consumption & are of higher quality. And when it comes to resolution, it’s for sure that more the pixels, higher the resolution.




 To get the perfect speakers, you first need to list down your requirement whether you need the same for music, movies or both. All home theater systems handle both movies and music, but if you wish to watch movies then you might want to look out for 4 high-end speaker boxes. Nowadays, home theatres come with the full package. Wireless speakers and woofers available these days, make the setup and easy process too. For a simple but high-quality sound placing two stereo speakers on either side of the TV is a good option.




You can place the TV and couches first followed by a plan to place the speakers and receiver. Placement should be done based on the seating arrangement as per your desire. You can make the speaker placement before you begin running wires to make set-up easy and quick. Now place the two front speakers at ear height and angled towards your seating location.

Place the center channel speaker above or below the TV, side speakers in-line and above the viewers, rear speakers side by side along the center of the back wall and of course the sub-woofer along the front wall, mostly in the middle.




 While deciding the seating, it’s important to consider the fact that the theater is going to be used by your family only and is not going to be a once in a year party use thing. So, if you love great sound, design setup should be well thought of too! For example, designing 8 recliners or maybe just one row of 4 recliners and with some large bean bags and a couple of couches would be a good idea. So, choose your options and design wisely! Some manufacturers like Cineak offer the best recliner seating. Cineak Creation Recliners are created for the most luxurious home theater systems, Cineak offers recliners with leather upholstery, varying stitching finishes, ergonomic contours, real wood veneer and an independently controlled reclining mechanism.
