Super Bowl is one of the best excuses to have a party. It’s also an excuse for buying a new TV and surround sound system to enhance your experience. From the crashing and banging of helmets and pads, to coaches yelling from the sidelines. By gearing up for the big game with the right TV and surround sound system, your experience will go from good to epic! Now is the time to create the ultimate viewing experience right from the comfort of your living room. So, forget about fighting to get the best table at your favorite sports bar. Instead, invite all your friends to enjoy all that that this year’s Super Bowl has to offer.

With today’s broadcast sound technology and the right surround sound system to deliver it. You will hear every little detail of this year’s halftime show and Super Bowl Sunday’s Game! The broadcasting technology available today will allow you to watch the game in high definition giving you the experience of being right there in the stadium. But, only if you add the right TV and surround sound system to deliver the impact you are looking for. So, whether you are in it for the commercials or simply a hardcore fan, here are a few ideas to improve your experience.

Your TV, GO BIG!

Go Big, it’s something you already know, but here is why you want a bigger TV especially for the big game. Football is a complicated visual experience, with lots of wide-angled views. Which means, the game is best suited for larger screens. Put simply, you will get a better experience watching the big game on a large TV, especially if you are having a party. When it comes to watching football and movies on a TV, then bigger is most certainly better.

The bigger the screen the more you can appreciate its picture quality. This is especially true if you get an OLED TV. With an OLED TV, the picture is near perfect no matter how close you sit, unlike an HD TV, which can get a little fuzzy if you are too close. With an OLED TV or even the right 4K HDR TV, you’ll love the detail a bigger screen gives you. The combination of screen size, excellent picture quality, and crystal-clear detail will have you fully immersed in what you are watching. So, here is what we recommend.

TV Placement

The placement of your TV is very important. When mounting a TV what you don’t want to do is mount it so high that you have to look up. This can cause discomfort in your neck and shoulders. When mounting your TV you want to consider the size of the TV, the size of the room, and where you will be sitting to ensure you are mounting your TV in just the right spot. For this reason, hire a company that offers TV wall mounting services. Hiring the right TV installer will help one determine the best location based on things such as, location of the power outlet, wall studs (supports the weight of a TV), and where one plans to sit down while watching TV. So, here is what we recommend.

TV Wall Mounting Services

Generally, TV installation and mounting services include the installation of a provider supplied TV mount bracket, securing the TV, load testing the hardware, cord concealment, and can include custom mounting support services when requested. Important to make note of, 90% of failures are caused by improper installations. To ensure a successful TV and wall mount installation, you may want to consider hiring a TV installation contractor like Shultz Audio Video.

Sound Matters

If you are using TV speakers for audio, you are only hearing the game in stereo not surround. That’s because you are using only two speakers as apposed to surround sound. When you only have stereo sound, it means you hear music, voices, or background sounds from the same two channels (speakers). Surround sound on the other hand gives you variances in sounds which are presented to you from different directions as well as levels depending on which sounds are meant to be in the foreground and which sounds are meant to be in the background (also known as ambiance or background noises).

The great thing about surround sound is the ability to set it to your unique needs. As an example, you can turn down the center channel to minimize the dialogue from the announcers. Conversely, if you would rather hear them over the crowd and the crashing and banging of helmets and pads, you can turn down the other speakers (left, right, and surround) and then turn up the center speaker. With two speakers, you get what you get. So, here is what we recommend.

Triad Speakers

Triad Speakers

Dolby® Atmos® is a dramatic new multidimensional object-oriented sound technology that redefines the audiovisual experience. Working with Dolby®, Triad has created a radical new line of recessed and freestanding speakers capable of moving the sounds of individual objects all around you, even overhead. Triad’s Atmos® enabled speakers are just the latest in their commitment to enable the best audiovisual experience that art and technology can deliver. It’s sound you have to experience to believe. In a world of cookie cutter products, Triad is the only company designing and manufacturing a comprehensive line of high-end architectural loudspeakers.

The Setup

Triad’s front home theater speaker is actually two separate speaker systems cleverly incorporated into a single handsome cabinet. The front-firing speaker system is basically a Silver LCR, which provides authoritative direct sound to the listening area. A unique array on the top of the speaker serves as a height channel. And, the four-driver array fires a focused sound to the ceiling, carrying discrete Atmos effects. Other front height speakers don’t offer the dramatic focus and localization of the Triad Atmos-enabled speakers. Dolby suggests using at least four upward-firing speakers to reproduce the Atmos channels.


Whether you are streaming the game or not, you’ll want to make sure you have plenty of bandwidth. From experiencing buffering to the picture breaking up, what you don’t want to do is be unprepared. The router is the bridge that turns your Internet connection into a fast, reliable network for your whole house.
