Watching movies at home has always been a favorite pastime for families. Generally, these movies were first viewed by simply turning on the TV and watching television programming. However, as with all things, technology begin to progress.
This progression started with the use of the VCR and then moved into the area of TV viewing through DVDs. Currently, the latest technology is Blu-Ray technology which adds even more clarity to the movie as well as providing optimal digital sound.
However, in order to fully capture the sound that is being transmitted, it is important that a home theater be incorporated. Therefore, it is important to know what the major speaker components are of a home theater system and to be more knowledgeable of home theater speaker installation.
Basics of Home Theater Speaker Installation
When considering the purchase of a home theater system, it is important to know what types of speakers comprise a home entertainment unit. Specifically, those speakers include, to the left and right of the viewing screen, a front and right speaker. Additionally, usually placed underneath the television set or viewing screen, is the center channel speaker. Also, to the rear of the viewing area, and usually behind the audience, are placed the surround speakers. Finally, the unit is completed through the use of a subwoofer.
Each of these speakers is important and together creates the optimum audio quality that is generally incorporated into the production of home movies today. Also, it is important to note that another option that is available to the individual when purchasing a home entertainment unit is through the use of wireless equipment. This particular feature allows for the transmission of sound, generally in the back speakers, to be captured through the use of wireless technology. This has an extreme advantage in that it does not utilize wires and therefore can be placed anywhere without additional wires cluttering up the home entertainment viewing area

This particular speaker provides the bass aspect of sound and its bigness of sound is in direct proportion to the size of the speaker.
