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 does a home theatre installation include?

Your home theatre can be as simple or as sophisticated as you like. Whether it’s just a big screen and surround sound speakers or a fully automated media room setup, it’s all about creating the right atmosphere to feel like you’re actually at the movies (without leaving the comfort of your own home).

Here are some of the most common home theatre services:

Projector installation

Bigger isn’t always better when choosing your home theatre screen, as it’s important to choose the best size for the space. Most projectors are mounted on the ceiling to get them out of the way and provide that real cinema experience. You can choose to have a mobile or motorised screen that can be tucked away when it isn’t in use, or even use a blank wall in your media room. Projectors are the perfect option for large spaces and more people, but you’ll need to block out natural light for optimum viewing.

TV wall mounting

You may choose a high definition tv in your home theatre for a simpler setup or due to light and space constraints. Your tv installer will mount the tv on a wall to maximise the space available in the room, plus you won’t need cabinets or shelving. They’ll usually use existing power points but will let you know if you need additional electrical work to power all components, or an extra antenna point installed. Your wall mounting installer will consider natural light sources and glare when positioning your tv and advise you on the best size for the space to get the most out of your viewing experience. Finally, they’ll conceal all the cables behind walls or conduits, so your screen is the main focus.

Speaker and sound installation

You can recreate the cinema experience by strategically placing soundbars, speakers, and amplifiers around your media room for surround sound. A central speaker that provides most of the sound will be installed first, and then additional speakers and amplifiers are placed around the room for immersive sound. Your audio-visual expert will consider room acoustics and seat positioning to make sure all viewers get an optimal sound experience; the way movies are intended.

Home theatre automation

Home theatre automation involves the seamless integration of all technology in your media room to make watching a movie as easy as possible. Integrated automation means you can control all aspects with the press of a button, including your Foxtel and Netflix access. A perfect home theatre setup means you only need one controller to operate your projector, choose your streaming or viewing option, turn off lights, and adjust the room temperature to create the right atmosphere. Your home theatre installer will demonstrate how it all works so you’ll be streaming your favourite movies in no time.
