Top Home Theatre related questions

A simple home theatre setup starts with an HDTV or projector (with screen) and a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system, including a soundbar, subwoofer, and rear speakers. You can even add to your experience with comfortable cinema-style seats that recline - ask your local interior designer to recommend a set that fits your home!

A simple home theatre setup starts with a HDTV or projector (with screen) and a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system including a sound bar, subwoofer, and rear speakers. You can add to your experience with comfortable cinema style seats that recline.

Your home theatre installer will check your media room and advise you on making the most of the space and acoustics in your room. They’ll install your TV or projector, soundbar, and speakers, connect it all together and show you how to operate it.

Your home theatre installation may take anywhere from 3 hours to an entire day, depending on the complexity of your system and what kind of space you’ve got. This is still considerably shorter than having to set it all up yourself. With a reliable home cinema installer, you’ll be picking out a movie and ordering your favourite snacks in no time! 

To get the most out of your home theatre, remember that a bigger room will need a bigger system - so choose the right one. Next, position your subwoofer in a slightly off-centre location to create an immersive experience. Remember to keep your centre speaker on higher ground as well (ideally above the screen). Lastly, calibrate your home cinema correctly. If you aren’t sure how to do this, ask a local home cinema installer. 

First, consider the size of your room and seating arrangement. Next, pick good quality speakers or a soundbar (a home cinema design installer can help you out). Then, angle and amplify your speakers and position them on stands. Lastly, balance the sound-reflective and sound-absorptive elements in your room. Rugs and curtains absorb the sound, while accessories on a coffee table can reflect and disperse sound.

Some questions to ask a Tasker before installation include:

  • Have you done projects similar to mine?
  • Is there enough space between the TV and the seats?
  • How will you mount equipment or hide cables?
  • Will I need special cables for my system (e.g. 4K video)?
  • Do you have any suggestions for my home theatre?

What do home theatre services include?

When you book a home theatre specialist through Airtasker, you can find various experts who’ll help you design, install, or improve your home cinema. They’ll usually assess the room you want to work with, mount the audio or video equipment, run wires, arrange to seat, and check to see that the audio and video quality are good from any seat in the house! 

While your specific needs may determine the kind of Tasker you get (as well as their process), you can typically expect the following services from a local home theatre expert:

Display device installation

Whether you’re using an LCD TV, curved TV, or a projector and screen, you can find a theatre expert who’ll help you out. Usually, they’ll mount the display device onto the wall, then connect it to your audio system and playback devices such as your laptop or DVD player. After this, they’ll configure the display device’s settings and hide any unsightly wires.

Audio system installation

When you hire an audio system installer, you can expect a Tasker who’ll connect them to the rest of your entertainment system and do the necessary configurations. Usually, this process involves mounting the speakers and positioning them so that they provide an immersive viewing or listening experience.  

If you plan on using a soundbar instead of (or in addition to) your speaker system, the Tasker will help pick out the best location for it, too. Lastly, the audio installer works to hide any wires that could cause injury or take away from the pristine home cinema experience.  

Home cinema design and installation

Home cinema design specialists consider the size and materials in the room you have and think of ways to transform it into the home theatre of your dreams. This process involves picking out furniture, painting the walls to enhance the audio-visual experience, picking out appropriate flooring (usually carpeting or area rugs). 

They may also add lighting elements to mimic the look of a cinema, though this can also depend on the size of the room and your personal taste. 

Receiver installation

This process usually includes connecting dozens of cables and wires to the receivers and making sure everything works. First, the Tasker picks out a good place for the receiver - usually a well-ventilated area that lets you access any cables easily. 

Next, the home cinema installer connects the receiver to your internet, speakers, television, DVD players, and other devices. Finally, they’ll check to see if everything is in working order.  

Installing surge protectors

A local home theatre expert can usually put up surge protectors to safeguard your expensive gadgets from electric surges. Doing this extends the lifespan of your TV, speaker system, and other electronics. If ever you can’t find a home cinema installer who can do this for you, use Airtasker to find a nearby electrician instead. 

Once you’re done with your home theatre installation, it’s time to kick back and try it out! So choose a film, order a pizza, and enjoy your new home cinema!
