The most important start of any Home Theater surround sound system is the selection and placement of the speakers. Components may be easily up-graded or changed over time but the speakers are a permanent addition to your home and will provide many years of enjoyment while adding a valuable amenity. The speaker selection and installation is permanent and must be right the first time.
Our AudioStar speakers are from a major domestic manufacturer and offer extremely high specifications at very competitive pricing. Our selections are speaker types which can be flush mounted in the ceiling (round speakers) or wall (rectangular speakers) so wiring can be “hidden”. The ceiling speaker is most popular as everything is out-of-site other than the sound.
There are many speaker manufacturers offering 100’s of speaker models making it difficult to select what speaker is better than the other and providing an almost impossible task of analyzing what is best of the group. For the most popular 6.5-inch flush mounted ceiling speaker and comparing by best frequency response and watts of handling capacity, you will find our private label AudioStar speakers top performers.
In Wall Rectangular Speakers around TV
Our least expensive speaker installation, rectangular speakers will be flush mounted left, right and over / under the TV with all wires hidden inside the wall. This design is an excellent choice when room layout restricts rear speaker installation or requires more extensive ceiling cuts to route speaker wiring.
This set up could also include 2-wall speakers in the rear; however, with 5-speakers the all ceiling option is the more popular choice. Note: our round and rectangular speakers both have the same woofer and tweeter but laid out in round and rectangular format. Most all home speakers are 6.5” size (refers to the size of woofer) with 8-inch size only for very large Grand Rooms and Home Theaters
In-ceiling Round Speakers
The round in-ceiling speaker is the Home Theater “standard” you see in the new model homes. In-ceiling flush mounted speakers with all wiring hidden remain. Most Home Theater rooms will have 3-front speakers with the center speaker over the TV and 2-rear speakers (5.1 systems, where the .1 refers to the optional subwoofer). Very advanced systems will add 2-more mid room speakers (7.1 systems); however, 7.1 sound tracks are limited and the 5-speaker system is 90 per cent of our installations.
