Which Factors Restrict Audio Quality in a Home Theater?

Published June 16th, 2021 by Audio-Ultra

The pandemic has proven that many people love watching movies at home, and it's no wonder why. Experiencing high-quality cinema in your own house gives the experience an intense, personal feel, along the lines of reading a book. Home theater systems mean you don't even need to give up the intense experience of high-performance sound that you get from a movie theater. 

But if you own a home theater, how can you be sure that you're getting the most out of your audio quality? 

If you're looking for high-quality sound, you've come to the right place. This article will walk you through all you need to know about what could be restricting the audio quality of your home theater. 

Seating Arrangement

A high-performance sound system could mean nothing with the wrong seating arrangement. One trick to improve audio is to keep seats at least four feet away from any speaker at all times. This ensures maximum receptivity and causes localization of your sound experience.

You should also make sure that you keep seats near walls. The sound bouncing off the walls will create a boomy, bassy sound that isn't optional for audio performance. 

Speaker Set Up

You can also optimize your speaking setup to improve audio. Make sure you place the majority of your speakers, and your woofer, at the front of the room, and the two remaining surround-sound speakers on either side; again, keep these away from any walls, so that the sound doesn't bounce off them too hard. 

Your woofer's placement matters less than the placement of other speakers since it's responsible for bass sounds that permeate a room. 

It's always best to take a scientific approach to these things. Try out different set-ups, and see which works best for you. 

Buy the Right Speakers 

This one should come as a no-brainer. Speakers that look nice and cost a lot of money may seem like they deliver a higher quality of sound, but often that isn't the case. 

Check out some of the lines we offer to see what true quality speakers in look like. When you're going for the home theatre experience, you don't want to skimp out on quality. Make sure you treat yourself to the best sound quality available. 


While nice speakers are awesome, it's very easy to forget about the other key component of sound quality — that's acoustics

Getting your home theatre a proper acoustic treatment will bring an extra level of joy to your home theatre experience. Sound isn't just about speakers — it's about science as well. Make sure you optimize your room for sound performance. 

Think About Audio Quality

When working on your home theatre, it's important to think not just about your speaker, but your audio quality. The fact of the matter is, audio quality has to do with a lot more than just the speaker you buy. 

Put the time in to set your home theatre up correctly, and do some research into seating and acoustics, for optimal performance.
