5 Components To Consider For Your Audio Visual Installation

Posted on: 30 September 2020

Audio visual systems can range from a TV with speakers to a full-blown theater room installation. Whether you're going for a minimalistic look or going all out and sparing no expense, you'll need to consider several components when designing the system.

1. Speakers

Additional speakers are a must for your audio visual installation. The speakers built into your TV can't provide surround sound. For that, you'll need speakers installed both in front of you and behind you. You may also want to invest in higher-quality speakers for the best audio experience.

2. Smart Home Components

Tying your AV system into your smart home setup can provide a variety of perks. For instance, with the right setup, you can control your TV and speakers by voice command, rather than using a remote. Or you can use an app to give you control over the installation even when you're not home.

3. Lighting

Mood lighting can help give your home theater a real movie theater experience feel. You can install dimmable lights, or even lights set into or along the floor to make the experience seem just like a real theater.

4. Projector and Screen

If you want the largest possible screen for your viewing pleasure, a projector screen may fit the bill. These provide enormous viewing surfaces at reasonable prices and are less likely to fatigue your eyes.

You can even get a super high definition projector to ensure the image is still high-quality even at such an overblown size. And projector screens can roll up when not in use, allowing you to use the room for other purposes.

5. Double Duty or Hidden TV

If you aren't ready to make the switch to a projector but still don't want the room to be dominated by the presence of a TV, you can choose a TV that doubles as something else. For example, one model of TV can double as a piece of art, while another can double as a mirror.

Another option is to choose a TV that will fit into a large motorized TV lift stand. These TV stands look like cabinets but actually house a TV on a shelf that lifts out at the press of a button.

These components can all add mood, functionality, and luxury to your AV system installation. For more information on how to design the best audio visual system for your home, contact your local audio visual installation expert today.
