One of the major components of a home theater system is audio. Your visuals could be stunning and incomparable, but if your audio is off even the slightest, it can ruin an entire viewing!
But achieving perfect audio isn’t just about your high-end speakers and equipment. The room itself in which your home theater system is located can make a major difference. In this blog, we’ll show you how you can best optimize your Englewood Cliffs, NJ theater space for top quality audio you have to hear to believe.

Set Your Home Theater Up for Amazing Audio
“Optimizing” a room simply means making the sound played in it sound its best, every time. When a room doesn’t have any carpeting, furniture, or other décor, the sound inside it echoes. This can happen if you bring speakers of any type of quality into your home theater room while it is unfinished and empty.
That’s why when you’re crafting your theater setup, you want to add lots of soft surfaces and fabrics to the room. Carpeting and customized seating with leather material will help stop sound from bouncing around in the space and creating those echoes.
Acoustic paneling on your walls will also help prevent echoes. Mounted up on the walls and ceiling, the panels can absorb more sound so that your surround sound and audio system delivers its full-bodied performance at all times.
Immerse Yourself in Surround Sound
Enveloping yourself with surround sound makes you feel like you’re right in the middle of an action scene or walking down the street with your favorite characters from a movie. And a Dolby Atmos system delivers this level of immersion for any piece of media formatted for it.
You’ll be able to hear top-quality sound in your own home that is usually only heard in commercial cinemas. But to incorporate Dolby Atmos into your theater, you will actually need to utilize those echoes your room creates.
So, by putting acoustic treatments on less wall and ceiling space, our expert integrators will know how to keep the right amount of echoing in place while properly installing the speakers to take advantage of this setup.
Lower the Amount of Sound Bleeding
There’s nothing worse than watching a film or show in one room and having it ruined by audio bleeding over from another room into yours. Or maybe you don’t even realize it, but your media’s dialogue and sound might also be affecting those in another room.
That’s why soundproofing is so crucial for your overall viewing experience in your home cinema. With a process called “decoupling,” you might build nearly a whole room within your existing home theater room – keeping the sound from ever leaking out or into it.
Other acoustic panels can absorb soundwaves, while bass traps made from specific foam and fiberglass can absorb those low frequency vibrations – giving you better sound and bass performance overall, while still keeping the audio inside your theater room.
