The Best Home Theater Setup 

As COVID-19 forced movie theaters to shut down and reopen with limited seating, home theaters stepped into the spotlight as more people chose to replicate the luxury of watching movies on the big screen by projecting movies in the comfort of their own homes. The trend is likely here to stay as film studios such as AMC and Universal shortened the window of premieres in theaters and at-home viewing from 90 days to just 17 days while Disney premiered the new animated film‚ Raya and the Last Dragonin select theaters and via Disney+ Premier Access in early March. Thinking of upgrading your home entertainment space to a deluxe home theater? Here are a few tips to help you design the best home theater setup:


If you are looking for the most connected and clear viewing experience, a smart home theater projector has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to install all your favorite apps like Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. Projectors are also portable so that you can bring them outside for summer movie watching under the stars. 


Deliver a cinematic experience indoors or outdoors with a projector screen. These screens are portable and easy to raise and lower with a convenient pull-down handle. The tripod stand promotes stable placement. 

Multi speakers

If you are serious about sound quality, multi speakers are the only way to go. You'll need at least two speakers and an AV receiver or an integrated amp. A two-way speaker system sounds like one source rather than several sources. You can also then add surround speakers and a powered subwoofer for sound that will make your home theater sound almost as impressive as your local cinema. Install speakers in the ceiling if you want sound coming from above, or choose Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers, which produce slightly diffuse overhead audio that is almost lifelike and, in some cases, better than the sound that comes from overhead speakers. 

Sound Bar

Soundbars require less money and space than multi speakers. You can entertain your household and guests affordably in enhanced sound using a home theater soundbar. To create the ultimate home entertainment experience, instantly pair and stream your favorite tunes or podcast through wireless Bluetooth technology. Check to see whether your soundbar works as smart speakers if you want to built-in voice control via Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.


Recliners are the best way to replicate a movie theater experience. And if you want to go super comfy, kick back in your home theater space with premium seating options such as power recliners featuring cup holders that light up and a USB charging port. 


LEDs are the best match for home theater lighting due to unmatched RGB color-changing ability and flexibility, bright, bold light output, and long, low-maintenance lifespans. Want an affordable LED option? Think about a smart LED light strip to create the perfect mood or vibe for your home theater space. If your room has windows, consider blackout shades or curtains to enhance your viewing experience.
