Basic Set Up - Cheap Home Stereo Surround Sound Systems

By Mia Jordan

Nowadays, people throw in a blu-ray disc, or watch a sports game on TV. But, they all have one thing in common, they're looking for something to deliver explosive sound to make things more intense. A home stereo system can deliver just that.

Every system needs a stereo receiver. A receiver works as the command center. It takes in A/V signals from other A/V equipment, amplifies the sound and sends it to all of the speakers for you to hear.

In order to make sure you hear people talking clearly, a center channel speaker should be used. It can be placed in a center position where your television is at. Most receivers will allow you to adjust the speaker volume so whom ever is speaking is not too loud.

Now you need your R/L front speakers. All sounds in front of the camera will be played through these speakers. They almost work similarly to your R/L speakers built-in to your TV. However with the extra watts from the system, they will be louder.

Surround sound speakers are simply neat! Besides everything being louder and more in depth, these will allow you to actually feel like you're in the middle of the "Big Action Scene". Surround speakers will make a gun fight sound like bullets are not only being fired in front of you, but also from directly behind. It puts you smack dab in the middle of what your eyes are gazing upon.

If you don't have a home theater subwoofer, you don't have a completed system. A system will only sound it's best when it is reproducing all frequencies (Highs, Mids and Lows). Bullets start flying everywhere from hand guns, and out of no where that one person pulls out the shotgun... BAM! The subwoofer just pounded it into your chest.
