How to Set Up Speakers and a Microphone?

A well-appointed audio and visual installation has the potential to change the home theatre experience completely. So, would you like to know the way to make an incredible home theatre system? That’s great! There is one thing that a lot of people ditch when building their home entertainment systems: the sound, and the best way to get great sound is through an AV receiver. It lets you control the volume and adjust the balance between the loudspeakers. Here is a complete guide to setting up speakers and a microphone effectively.

1)      Specified Cables

AV receivers have a myriad of connectors. If you would like a quick rundown of the  predominant inputs and outputs for surround sound receivers, you can contact us for consultation.

2)      Choosing Components

An AV receiver is an important purchase if you have separate speakers. A projector screen is not as essential; however, it will improve the visual quality of photographs. Since they’re taken in the real world, it improves the brightness, colour and detail of the image.

3)      Optimize The Room

Rooms are often made up of all sorts of furniture and items in all types of material. Having a mix of surface types within the room affects the sound? For example, hardwood is a reflective surface and bounces sound around like crazy. Try moving  furniture closer to the wall to reduce excess echo.

4)      Work With a Professional

Remember, having lots of options can instantly overwhelm someone without experience. Though it might seem like a fun hobby, or a money-saving move to establish a system yourself, most of us are left with a pile of unusable technology. Between audio visual system installation, coordinating with contractors if construction is required, wiring everything to make sure you have a good enough bandwidth and more, you can easily lose sight of the end goal.

5)      Get 3-Dimensional Effect

Having two rear surround sound speakers can give the sound a three-dimensional effect. They should be placed above and slightly behind the seating. Decent sound coming from behind will enhance the drama of an aeroplane flying low overhead, or a car racing up from behind during a chase scene, or can be as subtle as background noise in a restaurant.

6)      Component Calibration

There are several to check when dealing with audio components after they’re connected. Most DVD players and A/V receivers have their own way of performing the same thing, and might even have a different name for certain settings. You may need to make sure all your component parts are “speaking” to each other.

7)      DIY Home Theatre Room

People believe in DIYing their homes as it allows them to have a way to get their creativity along with having a great home theatre room experience. When you are thinking about DIYing your home theatre system, remember to opt for a rectangular room. Heavy curtains and shades help, but this means blinds or drapes whenever you switch your home theatre room. Also, plan the place in a way where your display screen and main speakers along a short wall for best sound projection.


As you can see, connecting speakers and microphone to your home theatre is easy. Even if you do not have a quality mic in port on your AV receiver there are still many other options available to you. For video device setup, call us at 1300 016 017.
