7.1 Surround Speakers: How Many Channels Are Necessary for Faithful Recreation?
Amid the multi-channel world of Dolby Digital 7.1 surround speakers and surround sound, we don't often stop to question what is it we're seeking? (For this discussion, let's ignore the video aspect of home entertainment, for without the audio portion, there would be little or no enjoyment of most events, musical or otherwise.

Bringing Sound Outdoors: Speaker Placement and Mounting
Outdoor music always hooks into summer enjoyment and we all have our personal faves: I forever associate summer with songs like the classic 10cc pop hit from the ‘70s, “I’m Not in Love” or the Captain and Tennille’s “Love Will Keep Us Together.

5.1 Symptoms That Your TV Display Needs Proper Setup
Just about everyone has had the experience at one time or another visiting friends or relatives when there happens to be a TV on in the room. If you're like me—and I assume most audio-video enthusiasts have this reaction to a greater or lesser degree—you see your host's TV or video display and think, “Why are they running the skin tones so red! All it needs is a little adjustment, and it's so annoying.

Soundproofing Your Home Theater Part Two: Building a Room Within a Room
Last month's Part One on home theater soundproofing received an excellent response, including rather vociferous discussion on other sites (and in emails to me), encouraging the use of a substance called “Green Glue” in place of silicone caulk.

Soundproofing your Home Theater Part One: The Basics
As much as we all love home theater movie soundtracks and music at realistic playback levels (“realistic” does not necessarily mean extremely loud), most of us have to deal with other people in our lives—family, roommates, companions, younger children and/or older relatives in the house, or neighbors in nearby, adjacent or adjoining homes.

How to Find the Best Place for Your Subwoofer
Want to crawl around on your hands and knees like our four-footed friends? It may strike you as a bit odd to do this in the pursuit of smooth, deep, and even bass, but it’s really the best technique to find the ideal spot for your EP125, EP175, or EP350 subwoofer, or Epicenter 500 or 600 Intelligent DSP Subwoofer.

Follow the Rainbow: Color Codes to Help I.D. Speaker Channels
Kneeling behind my equipment stand the other day, holding a MagLite in my mouth (wish my receiver had a USB port for a light like the new Axiom subs do!), I was trying to change some of my speaker connections when I noticed that none of the usual red/black color codes for positive and negative terminals for the various channels applied.

5(.1) Ways to Improve Your Home Theater Experience This Weekend
1. Buy Blackout Curtains to Darken the Room for Optimal Picture Quality If you are watching front projection images on a large separate screen and there is light in the room, you won't believe how much better your big-screen images will look—snappier contrast, blacker blacks and richer colors-- once you truly darken the room with blackout curtains.

Five Steps to Beautiful A/V Installations
It's a given that good loudspeakers require cabinets or enclosures to do what they do best imitating the sound of real musical instruments and human voices whether on CDs or in movie soundtracks. Loudspeakers have to move lots of air molecules in order to produce sound, so the rules of physics demand that speakers have appropriate enclosures in order to produce powerful deep bass and clean undistorted sound.

Tips & Tweaks : History of Home Theater
Why You Need More Than Two Loudspeakers In real life, our ears and brain interpret sounds from every direction, in a 360-degree circle, including even the dimension of height. Like a super computer running in high gear, our sophisticated hearing system decodes spatial and directional information in real time, telling us instantly the tonality, frequency content, and loudness of sounds from all directions.
