The first things you notice about a film are what you see and what you hear. While your roll down screen and lowering projectors take care of the visual side of things, your next priority should be how quality your audio is in your home theater.
Bringing immersive sound to your Memorial, TX home theater will completely transform your every viewing experience. With the current technology we have available, sound is actually more powerful than sound. It’s the sound of an explosion that makes you recoil, not the bright lights emanating from it. That’s why it’s so important to have a high-quality sound installation in your theater.

When it comes to surround sound, your acoustics might be the most crucial component. It all basically comes down to whether or not your sound is being reflected or absorbed in your theater.
Too much sound reflection will create an echo, so soft surfaces are needed to absorb the extra sound. Carpeting, frames, and furniture’s fabrics and materials are great for this!
But if you need to adjust the absorption even more, mounting acoustical treatments and panels in the room is the next step.
These fabric-covered wall panels make sure you have no echoes and help to reduce the overall sound reflection – so that you have the best space for movie nights, at any time.
Your acoustical panels are key to helping with sound absorption, but you also want to make sure they don’t obstruct your immersive audio.
Small surround sound systems need some audio reflection to give the audience that commercial-like immersive audio.
You don’t want to block audio from surrounding you in the room, so it’s important to check and see where your sound reflects in the room. With Dolby Atmos, you also want to add overhead speakers to help with the audio immersion.
Vaulted ceilings can also affect the sound. This area is the best place for those overhead speakers as opposed to upward-firing Dolby Atmos enabled one, as they might be needed to achieve that full immersive audio.
To get that high-performance audio every time you sit down to enjoy a film or TV show, you’ll need quality loudspeakers.
Your theater will become a haven for the ultimate listening experiences with superb speakers from Wilson Audio. They offer stylish and top-notch options for any space, but would go perfectly in a private theater. They have special tuning technology so we can calibrate the speakers to your room configurations.
Your home cinema will also need a very powerful receiver in order to deliver that fantastic sound quality every time you turn on the system.
We recommend Anthem, as they have a variety of high-end A/V receiver series to choose from for you. With their Dolby Atmos receiver you can even upscale traditional surround sound recordings for better overall sonic quality.
Both can be easily controlled through your same automation system that lowers your shades and projector – and all with a simple push of a button.
