You’ll Need More Than Just the Right Components to Get the Most out of Your System

Develop an Elegant Entertainment Space With Custom Home Audio Video

If you’re a movie buff or music lover, the first thing you think about when you hear the phrase “custom electronics” is probably your home audio video gear. That’s because you want your Portsmouth, New Hampshire property to look and sound as good as possible. But defining an entertainment space – a home theater, listening room or a versatile media room – is about more than the biggest TV screen or the loudest speakers. In this blog, we’ll take you through four common issues faced by AV fans, and how to enhance your spaces to get the most out of your gear.

1.Can’t Watch Movies in the Daytime

Ambient light is a killer. If you don’t have a dedicated, windowless room in which to enjoy your favorite movies, the small amount of light that seeps in below doors and behind curtains can completely ruin a movie’s picture. Solutions include blackout motorized shading on all of the windows, as well as a high contrast screen, or glare resistant TV. That way, you’ll be able to see everything.

2.Sound System Echoes

To avoid sound reflection and echoes, you'll need to optimize your room for audio. Even with the best speaker system available, acoustic treatments are imperative to your experience. Plush furniture and carpeting will help absorb the sound, while wall panels will keep it from reflecting too much. Creating a perfect balance of echo and absorption is essential to improved sound quality.

3.Screen Size Is Wrong

There are few things worse than a display that’s too big or too small. Either you’re straining your neck to take everything in, or you’re squinting to catch the details. Choosing a screen is more complicated that you may think: not only do you need to take into account the size of your space, but you need to define your seating arrangement beforehand to optimize your viewing experience.

4.Uneven Whole Room Audio

The beauty of a whole home audio system is that you’re not confined to a single room to enjoy great music. You'll want a system that delivers sound evenly throughout the room, even without acoustic treatments. That means integrating speakers positioned to take advantage of sound reflections to create a full, robust sound that you don’t have to play too loudly.
