Home Theaters In Finished Basements

Posted in Home Theaters

Anyone considering finishing out the basement in their home should consider a integrated home theater system, which is an absolute must for any one creating a family recreational area or the ultimate “man cave”!  A fully integrated system will provide years of enjoyment for you and your family. 

One of the biggest advantages of having an integrated home theater installed prior to the basement being finished, is the ability to design the system based upon the proposed layout.  When done early on in the process, the designer can make adjustments to the design of the space to maximize the performance of the home theater system, as well as the enjoyment of the system by the owner. 

Another advantage is the ability to run properly sized wires in the walls and ceilings behind the drywall.  There is nothing worse than seeing wires running exposed on any home theater system, no matter how good the equipment is!  In addition, the home theater contractor can utilize flush mounted speakers on both the walls and the ceiling to provide maximum performance, without the need for floor-mounted speakers!  Finally, they will be able to locate the equipment in discreet areas so that it is not visible, which detracts from the “clean” look that people are looking for in an integrated home theater system. 

A qualified home theater contractor that is licensed and insured will be able to design and install a home theater system that meets you and your families needs, as well as your budget.  Their qualified technicians will be able to properly pre-wire the system prior to drywall installation and install the equipment as soon as the space is completed.
