San Diego, are you curious about how to get the best home theater speakers for your space? A question we get routinely is, where do I start. When it comes to choosing the best speakers for a home theater system or surround sound system the answer is, it really depends. In fact, there are several things you’ll need to consider. For starters, you’ll need to consider the room itself. As an example, a large, open living room with vaulted ceilings will need different gear than a smaller room with 8 foot ceilings. Because of this, you need to choose speakers that match the size of your room. So, just how do you do that?
How To Match Speakers To Your Room
There are several schools of thought on how to go about this. But to simplify things, match the speaker size to your room in square feet and ceiling height. The reason you want to do this, if you choose speakers that are too small it will be underwhelming. On the other hand, choose speakers that are too big and it will overwhelm the space. Both of these scenarios are things you don’t want.
Aside from this, you’ll want to consider the layout and shape of your room. And, where the speakers look and sound the best. Our article on designing a surround sound system has detailed information on speaker placement. With all of this in mind, we offer some insight on the best home theater speakers available today.
