Home Theater Installation in Scottsdale, AZ
Whether you’re looking to tweak your existing TV set up, or you’ve been wanting to create an entirely new multimedia experience in Scottsdale can turn your living room into a great place to relax and entertain.
Of course if you’ve never installed a theater system for your home, then all the necessary components, the design and certainly the installation itself can become overwhelming. But don’t worry, there’s an easier way to get the multimedia system of your dreams. You’ll find out how in just a minute. But first, here are some of the questions to consider when completing a home theater installation.
What Type of TV Do You Need?
In general, you should invest in a high-definition TV that’s as big as you can afford. Naturally, however, you have to make sure that it’s not too big for the room. Rooms such as dorm rooms and small living rooms usually require smaller TVs so that viewers can watch the TV comfortably. Rooms like dedicated home theater rooms, which tend to be larger, should have larger TVs.
What Type of Speakers Should You Get?
You’ve probably seen those “home theater in a box” set ups. However, when it comes to home theater installation, you shouldn’t rely on “one size fits all” speakers. Instead, take into consideration your budget, lifestyle and the size of the room before beginning your system installation.
- Smaller rooms may benefit from installing a sound bar.
- Average-size rooms should have no fewer than five speakers.
- Larger rooms may have more components and bigger speakers.
Naturally, you can’t really test out these components before you begin a multimedia system installation. However, an experienced multimedia planner and installer can help you make the right audio choices for the room, your lifestyle and your budget.
How Much Should You Spend?
Once you start researching the costs, you’ll quickly discover that prices vary wildly. Naturally, your budget is going to dictate how much you spend on your installation. However, you’ll also need to consider your lifestyle and the purpose of the room.
Do you enjoy video games, movies and watching TV? If these activities are important to you, then consider your system a good investment. You can afford to spend more since it will bring you so much enjoyment.
Is the installation for a “man cave” or dedicated theater room? If so, you may extend your budget, since you’ve created a dedicated entertainment room.
Will your system be an important part of entertaining guests? Again, in that case, you may spend more on your system as it will serve as a centerpiece at your gatherings.
Once you decide some of these factors, then set aside your budget for a theater in your home, so that you know how much you have to invest in the TV, speaker, components and installation services.
“ Whole Home ” Audio Installation
Imagine turning the music on in your home and walking from room to room (or even outside) without missing a single note of your favorite song. Or perhaps you’d listen to an interview on talk radio… and even as you traveled around your home, you wouldn’t miss any of the interview.
Sure, that sort of thing is possible when you clip an iPod or other device to you. However, if you’d like to enjoy a richer sound without being tied to a device, then you’ll want to invest in a whole home audio installation.

With whole home audio, you decide what plays in each room of the house. You can use your system’s control pad to set a different audio stream in each room, which allows different members of your family to enjoy their favorite music. Or you can set the same audio to stream through the entire house, so that you can move from room to room without missing anything. This is sure to impress your guests, too.
