How to Prepare for a Custom Home Theater Installation
Work With Audio One to Create the Ideal Viewing Environment
Do you want to step up the entertainment in your Miami, FL home with a private theater? These home theater installations are a little different than what you may have experienced in the past. It's about more than just finding speakers and flat screens and plugging them in. These custom theaters involve the white glove treatment from consultation to installation.
The first step on your journey is to schedule a consultation with Audio One by clicking the link below or by filling out the form at the bottom of this blog. The point of this initial meeting is to get to know your home as well as your preferences. This will help us design a space that is uniquely yours. To get you a taste of what to expect, we've offered a preview of some common questions we ask below.
Where Would You Like Your Theater?
One of the primary goals of the initial consultation is figuring out where your brand new theater should go. Unless you have a particular room in mind, we’ll do a walk-through of your home until we find the perfect candidate. There are a variety of tools we can use to convert any space into the ideal spot for your theater.
All of our installations, for example, include special acoustic treatments and fabrics to optimize your surround sound. If you do not have any rooms without windows, we can install motorized shades that block out the sunlight when you’re watching a movie.
What Style Do You Want for Your Theater?
We partner with the top audio and video manufacturers in the industry to get you the best quality possible. We’ll advise you on the best screens, speakers, media servers, and more and work with you to ensure that any AV equipment we include in your theater matches your unique style. Some clients want to show off their powerful speakers, while others want their AV components camouflaged.
Want to have a traditional theater like the one pictured above? We’ll use a projector-and-screen setup. Meanwhile, all components remain out of view, so they don't clash with the classic décor. Speakers stay hidden within the walls, ceilings, or behind the screen. All other electronics are put away in a dedicated AV closet.
How Do You Want to Use Your Theater?
The final step is figuring out what you want to watch and how you want to control your system. Do you primarily want to watch movies or would you also like to follow the Dolphins game? Would you like to use a universal remote or manage everything from a dedicated touchpad or mobile app?
Whichever your preferences are, the expert technicians at Audio One can make it happen. We’ll include all the sources you need –including Blu-ray players, media servers, and cable boxes—in your initial design. We’ll then do the necessary programming to provide the most convenient control solution for your home.
