Three Common Mistakes To Avoid When Setting Up A Home Theater System In Your Home

The idea of sitting right in your home and enjoying a movie in true theater style is alluring enough to have many homeowners running to their local electronics store and investing in all kinds of high-tech equipment to implement their own home theater. While having your own home theater could definitely be a cool thing, there is a lot more to setting up a home theater system than simply installing a screen and buying a projector. Take a look at some of the most common mistakes you will have to avoid if you choose to set up a home theater system in your home. 

Mistake: Not making sure the room you choose for your equipment is substantially sized. 

Why? You can invest in even small projectors and screens, but the simple fact of the matter is, if you have a small space, your viewing pleasure will definitely be compromised. If your current family room or living room is narrow in size, setting up all of the equipment and still having enough room for seating can be a challenge. For this reason, it is better to use a room in your house that is fairly large where floor space is concerned. 

Mistake: Not investing in a proper projector screen. 

Why? Many homeowners make the mistake of assuming that a blank white wall or even a hung white sheet will be all that is needed for a projector screen. However, if you do not invest in a proper projector screen along with your projector, your view will be lower quality and not as enjoyable as you would prefer. Look for a quality high-definition projector screen. Even though this will mean investing a little more money, it will be well worth what you pay where the quality of the picture is concerned. 

Mistake: Not properly mounting the projector system. 

Why? Most projector systems are designed in a way that allows them to be either set up on a table or mounted overhead. Table setup is fine in some settings, but in most typical house rooms, a table projector setup will not be logical because you will be dealing with shadows in front of the stream of projected imagery. Instead, it is a better idea to mount the projector high on a wall in the back of the room, adjacent to the projector screen or from the ceiling. This ensures there is nothing blocking the projected imagery, but also helps prevent problems with people stepping in the way when a movie is playing.
