Home Theater Speaker Setup
So, you’re setting up a home theater system and you’ve got your projector, screen and seating perfectly arranged. You’re all set right? Not quite! Next to picture quality, sound is the major player when it comes to a well-crafted home theater. And, you can only really achieve optimal sound through proper speaker placement. Get some basic tips on how to set up your speakers so you get the best sound possible in your home theater.
Center channel speaker
There’s not much room for negotiation when it comes to your center speaker, so placement of this one is the easy part. Just about any expert will agree that this speaker should be centered either right above or below your TV or projector screen. The center speaker is the main component that ties the dialogue to the screen, so it needs to be close to it. Then, you’ll adjust the speakers to the left and right of it to ensure the sound from all speakers is blending together.
Main front left and right speakers
The goal with your front main speakers is to form a slight arc with the center channel speaker. Your main front speakers should be at an equal distance away from the TV and at least six feet apart. They should also be exactly the same distance away from your main seating area. You can adjust and calibrate these speakers based on how large your room is and how many seats you have so everyone in the room gets superior sound quality. The front left and right speakers are responsible for the majority of the music and sound effects, so they’re an important part of the home theater experience.
Surround sound speakers
Place your surround sound speakers to the sides and slightly toward the back of your seating area about two to three feet above ear level. The purpose of surround sound speakers is to create the atmospheric sound that envelops the viewer and makes them feel like they’re right there in the movie. If you don’t have the side wall space to mount speakers, invest in some speaker stands so you can still distribute the sound in such a way that it creates the enveloping effect.
The only hard and fast rule with your home theater subwoofer placement is that it should sit on the floor. The subwoofer’s job is to provide the bass sound in a movie, so placing it close to a wall or in a corner will amplify the bass. While the process to achieve the best bass level will differ with each home theater system, ideal positioning results in a balance of both the quantity and quality of bass output. Try some different placements ̶ in and out of a corner, close to and away from a wall, in the front, in the back, etc. Bass levels will also vary based on many factors including the size and shape of your room, so you’re smart to try out many positions to find the best.
Home theater system differences
While this should give you a high-level overview of home theater speaker placement, prime positioning will obviously depend on your specific system as well as components including the home theater receiver, speaker toe-in, sound pressure levels and calibration, floor plan, and much more. The ultimate test will be actually taking your home theater for a test drive. If you’re not wowed by the sound, adjust some of the speaker positions and try again.

Marketing your business properly is what stands between a mediocre or failing company and one that is thriving and growing with each passing day. The biggest problem with marketing is oftentimes, everybody thinks they are a marketing expert and try to do it all alone. Just because you read a book on a brain surgeon doesn’t mean your local medical facility will allow you to perform the task. The same holds true for marketing. You could have done all the research in the world on how to properly market a product or business, but until you talk to an expert, what you think and what is a reality are two different things.
