DIY Home Theater Installation

There are quite a few things that make it appealing to turn your home theater installation into a DIY project. You might have more time on your hands, and you really enjoy the accomplishment of upgrading your space with your own two hands. Plus, it may be more cost-friendly!

However, there are some major disadvantages you should consider before moving forward with a DIY installation. The truth is, if you don’t have the vast knowledge and experience of a professional installer, your home theater might suffer because it won’t be optimized to the best of its capabilities. This includes the technology and equipment you use, the acoustic treatments, and even the furniture layout!

While the potential to save on costs by building a theater yourself does exist, you may spend more money in the long run purchasing the wrong equipment or failing to install everything properly along with having a theater that under-performs.

Professional Home Theater Installation

By partnering with an experienced professional for your home theater installation, you get the benefit of someone who can take your vision and turn it into a reality with best-in-class technology and equipment that are all integrated. Plus, a pro will get it done a lot faster because this is what they have done many times over, for many years.  Experience = efficiency.

In other words, they get it right the first time. Once your installation is complete, they’ll quickly and easily show you how to use your new equipment and any smart technology, such as lighting and climate control, so you don’t have to figure it out on your own.

Even the best technology has hiccups from time to time. Unlike waiting on hold with your technology manufacturer’s customer service rep because your installation was a DIY project, with a professional build-out, all you have to do is call your home theater partner for support. They work quickly to solve your technical difficulties in minutes rather than hours or days.

We always recommend working with a professional for your home theater installation. At Frangioni Media, we deliver the best in-home luxury cinemas so you can take your audio and video consumption to the next level.
