It is the season of sports and sporting fans want only the best. Nothing can be more rewarding than a sound system that increases your involvement in the game. We bring to you seven tips to get the most out of your sound system:
Amplify your audio visual
To enjoy the surround sound experience at its best, you will need an audio-visual amplifier and a set of speakers placed around your room to receive the entire effect. Your surround sound system will require five speakers and a sub-woofer for bass frequencies. Otherwise, you can opt for all-in-one amp speaker package.
The right speaker placement
Place your speakers depending on your room for the best surround sound experience. Square rooms provide the best surround sound experience. Your surround sound speakers at the sides of the TV would be perfect. Make sure you keep the center speaker in the middle of the room. And the surround sound speakers on the left and right of the room.You can place the sub-woofer in any convenient place.
Plan your Position
If you place your TV in the corner of the room, then rethink your speaker position. The left and right speakers on either side of the room are a suitable option. Don’t worry if you have to place them close to each other, it won’t affect the sound. Keep the center speaker in the middle and the surround sound speakers on the left and right side of the room. As long as all your speakers are pointed towards you, you will get the best surround sound experience.
Wire it right
Wiring is very important for the output of your surround sound. You need to ensure that the channel outputs on your amplifier match with the right speakers. The front left speaker needs to be wired to the front left output, and the same logic applies to other speakers. Surround systems have color coded cables or plugs, which will help you to get the wiring right.
The Digital Connect
To get the best surround sound setup, you can hook your video source to your amp through a digital connection. The digital connection can be either optical or coaxial dependi ng on the output of the video source and the inputs given to the amp. The best surround sound quality signal will be sent from your video source to your amp through this digital connection.
It is not mandatory to buy premium optical or coaxial cables to connect your A/V equipment. However, a reasonably good quality speaker cable is recommended. You can acquire the cable from specialist stores. You can buy an all-in-one home cinema system with the cables that you need to connect to the speaker, sub-woofer, and the amp.
Volume and Time Delay
Get the speaker volume right. In order to avoid the sound from the speaker closest to you arriving before the others, you have to set the delay timer for each speaker. There are some surround sound systems that can set the delay time for each channel automatically. In case your surround sound doesn’t set the delay automatically, then you may have to set the delay manually.
