Add High-Quality Surround Sound to Your Luxury Home Theater Room
If you’re just getting started with surround sound for home theaters, you’ll notice numbers like 5.1.2, 7.1, 2.1, and 9.2. What do they mean? Are speaker companies just trying to be complicated and confuse end users?
The numbers actually represent the amount of speaker channels in your home cinema. In a configuration from 7.2 down, the first number defines how many standard speakers are at ear level. The second number represents subwoofers for low bass notes. In configurations for Atmos or 3D systems, there’s a third number which is the sum of overhead or ‘height’ speaker channels.
But what does each setup mean, and which is right for your home? We’ll break down what different formats will offer your Fort Lauderdale, FL luxury home theater room.
