Every home theatre owners expect to get a little more from their home theatre. Throughout the process of buying and installing, people miss some of the important aspects. And, even if you have put enough effort at the time of installation, there is always a chance of improvement. We found out some of the easy tips and tricks to make your system perform better. Let’s us begin with it without any delay:
1. The speakers should always be compatible
Every speaker brand has its own signature sound, and as the sound effects travel from one sound box to another, there is a chance of losing the quality in the way. We usually change one or two speakers of the home theatre, either because it got worn out or we thought of improving the sound. However, when the speakers of your home theatre don’t match with one another, the music will change at least three times.
Even when the manufacturer claims that the home theatre will work fine with other sound system too, you need to maintain the similarity across the system. Whichever brand you chose for your home system, make sure you are matching it with the existing sound system. Start replacing from the front left, right, and centre channels as these are the sections where most of the actions take place. Add in the rest of the speakers as you wish too.
2. Upgrade the amplifier
If the amplifier doesn’t have enough power, even the most reliable speakers won’t perform well. On the other hand, a low-quality speaker can attain the premium power with proper amplification. Even though the speakers in reserve require power to maintain the sound quality, you don’t have to rely on the wattage rating entirely.
3. Bring in some subwoofers
A mega sub is likely to give you a lot of bass, but it will give massive dips and peaks also. You can expect a smooth bass across the room, and that is why you require the subwoofers. Suppose there are one row in the room, then you need no less than two woofers, and if there are two rows, then we would recommend at least four subwoofers. You can go for more as it only improves the quality of sound reaching to your ears.
4. Upgrade your centre channel
All the heavy lifting is done by the centre channel of your home theatre. It will not just be used for the dialogues, but for the explosive effects also. Look into the technical details, and you will find that 85% of the track information is meant for centre channels. So, if you are using a small centre channel, it will allow you to experience life-like dialogues along with more bass.
5. Dedicated electrical circuit and room acoustics
If your home theatre is running on the same circuit as that of the AC, refrigerator, and washing machines, then there is a chance of extra noise. Most of the time, the appliances produce some sort of noise that causes variation in the current and leads to noise.
When you install a dedicated circuit, you are making sure the sound you receive is free from any disturbance. Also, it supports the safer operations. Listen to any of the professionals, and they will suggest a separate circuit for sure.
Also, the audio systems figure out just the half of the sound you get; the other half will be the room acoustics. No need to do much, but you need to make sure the basics are clear. Add the bass trapping to get the room under control. You can look for deep fibreglass traps as they are not going to cost you much and are extremely reliable.
The only downside about the fibreglass traps is they consume a lot of space, but you are inevitably left with a lot of space.
You can also try the surround sound headphones to experience more realistic sound.
You can begin with these simple tweaks in your home theater setup, making your way towards others aspects of sound management. Whether you want to add a little more panache in the home theater or want to change the acoustics, there is a way to make the home theater experience more enjoyable.
