Box Kit Home Theaters

Box Kit Home Theaters

Box Kit Home Theaters ours is a world in which convenience has increasingly grown in demand. It is for this very reason that many buyers of home theater systems expect some level of convenience when they go shopping for a home theater system. This goes on even though there exist many types of consumers the world over and even in matters of supply and demand, nothing has emerged that wholly and fully fits all society. People want things that are similar for one reason or the other, yet they insist on autonomy and large options to be availed for their tastes.

The needs of a modern society which insists on convenience of making purchase has skyrocketed to a level that packaged goods have become the norm, be it prepackaged dinner packs to already packaged home theatre systems. There is no doubt that these prepackaged theatre home systems offer a big deal of ease to consumers. These benefits include the ability to get the price of the complete system prior to purchase. This is only a small level of benefits that come in comparison to the full benefits those buyers of these home theatre systems experience.


Buyers of these already packaged home theater systems are well informed that all related components to these systems will harmoniously work together. They do not have to worry about proprietary issues, these systems components are designed in a way that does not create conflicts with the other parts but ideally complements them for highest quality and high efficiency.


Most of these prepackaged systems cost less than buying separate components. For most consumers, this is one major reason for purchasing a box kit. This is of course to the convenience of realizing the cost of the entire package beforehand. There are many parts and components in the market, and you can find them all in separate price range, it can be a little bit confusing when comparing prices due to the difficulty of grasping the many quality details and simply by evaluating boxes.


These prepackaged box kits allow you to hear and see them in action when consolidated. This gives you the consumer a good chance of witnessing the overall performance of the system as compared to listening to a hodgepodge of separate pieces and parts while speculating how they really work individually. A lot can be said about having the capability to try and see something working before you buy it. These prepackaged systems allow you to do just that.

Set up

For most consumers this is one big reason to go for a prepackaged kit as opposed to a big system with separate component-ease of mounting. Most of these prepackaged home theater systems are quite easy to install. This eliminates the need for expert installation and saves you a great deal of hassle on the set-up process.

One major drawback of these prepackaged systems though, is the inability to upgrade them once purchased and you may have to go for a different type of system. This mostly leaves true enthusiasts feeling a bit letdown by the quality of sounds from such systems. If you, however, have restricted space and are limited on funds, these prepackaged systems are an ideal place to start when considering home theater purchase. You can give it to your children later if you decide to upgrade at a later stage.

DIY Surround Sound

  1. The main surround sound format is known as five-point-one. The numbers in the name refer to the number of speakers the format can use. So, five-point-one uses five discrete full-range audio channels–three speakers at the front, which are stereo left and right, plus a centerchannel mono and two surround sound speakers at the side or rear of the listener. (“Surround Sound Placement Guide”)

“The “point-one” in five-point-one refers to the sixth, low-frequency effects channel, which carries bass sound to the woofer or subwoofer.” (“Surround Sound Placement Guide”)

  1. For home theater surround, there’s new refinement to five-point-one, called seven-point-one. This format adds two more speakers, which allow for two surround speakers to be placed behind the seating area, and the other two to the sides of the listening position. (“Surround Sound Basics: Here’s What You Need to Know BEFORE Purchasing and …”)

“If a DVD movie is mixed in seven-point-one surround sound, there will be seven separate channels of audio.” (“Surround Sound Basics: Here’s What You Need to Know BEFORE Purchasing and …”) But since most DVDs and other content are currently mixed in five-point-one surround, often those two extra speakers will be duplicating the same audio you would hear with five speakers. (“DIY Surround Sound | Self Made Home Theatre”)

After you choose between a five-point-one and seven-point-one sound surround system, it is time to buy your speakers. Here are some basic rules-of-thumbs to follow when selecting the speakers:

“* The first rule is to get five (figure A) sound surround system, or seven, timbre-matched speakers.” (“DIY Surround Sound | Self Made Home Theatre”) Although timbre matching is quite technical, it simply means that each of your speakers will produce similar sounds. (“Choosing Home Theater Speakers – HGTV”)

Note: You want to match the speakers all around the room, so the sound is seamless. A small center channel speaker from one manufacturer and large floor standing speakers from a different manufacturer is not your best bet, even though this setup is found in most homes. (“DIY Surround Sound | Self Made Home Theatre”)

* For most people with a medium-sized living room or den, 12″ to 15″ tall bookshelf speakers make a lot of sense. They are a convenient size that will not overwhelm a room and can be found in every price range. Typically, bookshelf speakers do not bring a lot of bass, but that is okay because the subwoofer will manage those low frequencies.

* Only if you have a dedicated home-theater space or large multi-purpose room should you consider speakers of the large variety–38″ and up (figure B). Although the best of the speakers in this range do sound great, and can be loud, it is really overkill for most rooms. (“Choosing Home Theater Speakers – HGTV”)

* The subwoofer is also an important part of the overall surround-sound system. It delivers all the deep bass impact on DVDs–as well as music. (“Surround Sound Basics: Here’s What You Need to Know BEFORE Purchasing and …”) Most mid-priced systems, though, come with a woofer–a small driver in a small cabinet with a small amplifier. This is fine for music, but you are not really going to hear the deep bass on DVDs. To hear them, you must pony up for a real subwoofer with a bigger woofer driver, bigger amplifier and a bigger cabinet hand is on the subwoofer), which all add up to one thing–deep, deep bass.

“Go ahead and get the biggest and most powerful subwoofer your budget will allow.” (“Choosing Home Theater Speakers – HGTV”) This bass boost will make any size satellite speakers sound improved.

* Some consumers get caught up in power ratings–or “wattage“–when buying speakers, but those numbers are just an advisory from the manufacturer. You do not have to match a 100-watt amp with speakers rated at one hundred watts but use these ratings as a guide for choosing speakers that fall at or above your amp’s wattage. (“Surround Sound Basics: Here’s What You Need to Know BEFORE Purchasing and …”)

* When shopping for speakers, one of the big mistakes most people make is listening to unfamiliar program material — usually a demo CD or DVD the store may have on hand. (“Choosing Home Theater Speakers – HGTV”) Unless you are familiar with the program material, there is no way of knowing whether a speaker system is really to your liking. It is recommended that you bring your own CDs or DVDs. If you listen to familiar sounds, one speaker system is going to stand out over the other.

* Every home theater and speakers come complete with cables, but it recommends that if you are spending serious money anyway, consider getting after-market cables. You will see better video; you will hear better audio, and the cables will last longer without problems. There are a lot of inflated claims about the performance of some cables, with price tags to match. (“Choosing Home Theater Speakers – HGTV”) But you do not have to pay thousands of dollars for overly thick cables. A good rule-of-thumbs is to spend about 10 to 15 percent of the cost of your overall home-entertainment system. One thing to look for–gold-plated connectors. Unlike nickel or tin-plated connectors, gold will not corrode–and corrosion causes distortion.

Always keep the above in mind when you decide to purchase and install a home theater system.
