The Components Of Home Theater Speakers

Jan 9, 2008
Almost every home theatre systems comprise of the following type of speakers:

* Front Right and Left Speakers
* Center Channel
* Surround Support Speakers
* Subwoofer

All these speakers work as one unit to produce the sound that you get to hear in a movie hall. Thus, evolved the term home theatre system. Though, you will find several brands and models to choose from, that actually produces great sound when they work in a cohesive unit. Still it is always good to know the role of each type of speakers and few of the things to consider before buying a whole new home theatre system for yourself.

Before you go any further, consider voice matching of the speakers. It is the primary key to an effective home theatre sound output. If your speakers does not work together in coherence, then the sound produced will be disjointed, thus ruining the theatre like ambience. To ensure voice matched speakers, always choose speakers belonging to the same family by the same brand.

Now, consider the role of each speaker before buying and how it can enhance your movie watching experience as a whole.

Front Right and Left Speakers- The front right and left speakers delivers a wide soundstage that actually blends with the video to produce a more authentic and exciting movie experience. Apart from controlling and producing the musical score, it also handles the major chunk of special effects.

Center Channel - The center channel speaker happens to be the unsung hero of your home theatre system. While you are watching a movie, the center channel speaker delivers more than fifty percent of the soundtrack and the dialogue. Its primary function is to keep the sound firmly anchored in accordance with the on-screen action.

Surround Support Speakers- The surround speakers produce the common atmospheric sounds like the whizzing past of a bullet, the sound of raindrops, footsteps and several others that delivers a spectacular effect to the entire movie watching experience. They would really make you feel that you are at the heart of the entire action.

Subwoofer- If you are planning to set up a home theatre system then make sure that you get the subwoofer for yourself. Without which many Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks that delivers a dedicated channel for deep bass won't be realized. And this bass is responsible for making those sound tracks larger, realistic and complete, and not to mention those thunder, lightning or explosion effects that make the movie watching experience all the more real. Since most speakers are not able to deliver the level of bass on its own, a sub woofer is much needed to make sure that your home theatre system renders crucial low frequency output. A sub woofer also adds worth to music listening as it is a wonderful tool to round out every type of music, from jazz to classical to rock to R&B.

Having all that said and done, it is now time that you check all the speaker models across all brands and nail down to the one that would cater to your taste, fit your pocket and enrich your movie watching experience altogether.
