Ways to Upgrade Your Home Theater in 2020

When you go all-in and put your own home theater in your home, you deserve to expect the best. People who have dedicated media rooms often feel that they’re not quite getting the experience you might expect when you upgrade from a normal family room.

To get the best home theaters in San Francisco are the ones that get every detail just right, so don’t be afraid to tweak things as you see fit. Here are five of the most common upgrades that will make a big difference in your media room.

1 – Add or Upgrade Your Subwoofer

You may already have great features, but the right subwoofer can still take your entire sound experience to the next level. Add a new one, or upgrade what you already have, and you’ll feel a whole new level of immersion the next time you have a movie night.

Subwoofers are created specifically to add power and clarity to the lowest notes, so you’ll get more from movie scores, gunshots, and all kinds of other sound effects.

2 – What’s Higher Than High Definition?

Some people get frustrated because they feel like their “new” TVs and projectors become outdated almost as soon as they get installed. We tend to disagree– the rapid advancements in technology allow home theater owners in the Bay Area to enjoy their movies with crystal clear quality.

Best of all, when you take the time to identify and install the most futuristic technology on the market, you’ll be able to enjoy it for years to come.

3 – Don’t Disregard the Wiring

Your entertainment system is only as good as its weakest link. If the weakest link is the wiring that quite literally links it all together, you may be in for a subpar movie night. Don’t go all out on a brand new projector and surround sound system only to skimp on the installation and power supply.

Dedicated home theater installation professionals will know how to ensure all of your equipment works together in perfect harmony and reaches its fullest potential.

4 – Theater Lighting

Ambient light can decimate the visual quality in your home theater, especially if you’re using a projector. Deep, dark colors rely on the absence of outside light just as much as they rely on the projection itself.

Blackout shades and appropriately dim LED lights along walkways will help you make sure your image isn’t polluted by outside lights. If you decide to take a smart home approach to your home theater, you can even achieve total darkness with the push of a button.

5 – Settle the (Movie) Score

One of the biggest reasons people flock to theaters is because of the superior sound. Bring that same quality to your home theater by adding surround sound, soundbars, and similar equipment that’s been specifically created to work with all of your other components. You’ll notice the difference with new releases and old classics alike.
