Everyone wants that movie theatre experience, but not many are sure how to achieve it. Building a home theatre system may be a daunting task for some people, but we here at North Shore Mini Storage have put together a list on the essentials when building your dream theater. Read below for the details.
What’s more important than the screen? Well, nothing is. Nobody wants to look at a poor quality screen and nothing spoils the movie like low resolution. This means that unless your TV is less than 5 years old, you may want to look into replacing it. The new screens out there boast 4k resolution and have options like built-in apps such as Netflix. Stay away from plasma screens as they can have burn-in, however they are considerably cheaper.
Now, you won’t achieve that THX theater sound, that would cost thousands of dollars. However, you can come darn close. Basically, you want at least two tower speakers, a sub-woofer and an amplifier. If you want to go surround sound, get two more speakers and place them in the back corners of the room. Wiring this all together can be confusing, but use this handy guide to make it a breeze, don’t waste money on “professional” installers.
What completes a theater experience like the seats. If you want to get that theater feel, then a couple of these would do well. They give the look of a theater and are sure to impress your viewers. If you are on a budget, craigslist and some local furniture stores may have great deals on good quality seating. If the price is low enough, you can even have them reupholstered to get that brand new feel.
However, you choose to build your home theater, choose North Shore Mini Storage for your storage needs.
