Super Bowl 50
Super Bowl 50 marks the golden anniversary of America’s biggest annual event in the world of sports. This year’s Super Bowl event is unlike any other… rumor has it that this year’s Super Bowl halftime show will feature performances from music giants including Coldplay, Maroon 5, Metallica and Adel just to name a few. With performances from music legends like this and a game that has been long awaited, you just cannot go without a great home entertainment system and most importantly a surround sound system… NOT THIS YEAR!
Super Bowl 50: On the Field Experience
Do you want to feel each and every note played at what will be known as the biggest music event of the year? With today’s broadcast sound technology and the right surround sound system to deliver it… you will easily hear every little detail of this year’s halftime show and Super Bowl Sunday’s Game! Hear the crashing and banging of helmets and pads, coaches yelling from the sidelines and the fans cheer throughout the stadium from the comfort of your own living room! The broadcasting technology available today will allow you to watch the game in Ultra HD and give you the experience of being right there in the stadium… but only if you install the right TV and surround sound system to deliver the impact you are looking for.
The truth is, without the right systems in place what’s the point? So if you are looking to transmit Super Bowl at the highest resolution possible you might want to consider this…
What is Surround Sound?
What is surround sound? Surround sound is a type of audio output. The audio output generated by a surround sound system actually surrounds the listener with what feels like a 360 degree space… or put more simply the sound is all around you. As an example, in a football game might see fans cheering, coaches yelling from the sidelines and the teams colliding but you may not necessarily hear each of these elements … with a surround sound system you would hear fans cheering as background (or ambient sound) coaches yelling with sound that goes from foreground to background depending on if the camera is pointed at them for a particular reason (maybe after a play)… while hearing a larger more impactful sound of helmets and pads crashing thus giving you an on the field experience.
How Does Surround Sound Work?
To understand surround sound and how it works it makes it easier to compare it to stereo sound. With stereo sound there are two speakers and sometimes a subwoofer depending on the set up. When a listener has only stereo sound they hear music, voices or background sounds from the same two channels also known as speakers. This means that even background noise that has been made to enhance a scene but not necessarily be the focus of the scene comes from the same direction at the same levels… thus making it hard to really experience everything the director intended you to.
Surround sound on the other hand gives 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).
Technically speaking, surround sound works because multiple audio channels are being used to provide a more realistic experience. The audio from Super Bowl Sunday’s game sound is received through speakers that are positioned in different locations of the room. When a surround sound system is used to watch Sunday’s football game your surround sound speakers will provide you with a depth to your listening experience that enables a multi-dimensional experience.
Or put simply, the sound is dispersed the way the NFL intended in that you hear the right foreground noises and the right background noises at the right levels and places thus creating a 360-degree listening experience.
Surround Sound Systems: 5.1, 6.1, and 7.1 Channels
Surround sound systems can be a simple 5.1 channel set up where 3 speakers are placed in front of you (left, right, center), two speakers behind you (right surround, left surround) with a subwoofer somewhere in the same room (for low frequency effects). Surround sound speaker systems can be placed in-wall, in-ceiling or can stand alone depending on which type of speakers are used.
6.1-surround sound produces six channels of sound. The speakers are placed in similar areas with an added level of depth that is produced by the extra speaker in a rear center position. 7.1-surround sound produces 7 channels of sound much like the other two surround sound speaker set ups the 7.1 has speakers in the same areas with two added levels of depth that is produced by a left rear and right rear speaker.
Speaker placement is more important that you might think! Considerations such as where you can put the speakers, as in can I hide them must be taken into consideration. You may think putting your nice newly bought speakers into a cabinet might not matter but it does. When you put speakers or subwoofers into a cabinet that hasn’t been specially designed for that purpose you run the risk of muffled sound. Another important item to make note of… surround sound speakers need to be placed in very specific areas in order to produce the 360-degree sound experience…
The placement of your TV is very important. When mounting your 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.
