Home Theater Installation in Ann Arbor, Michigan

Home theaters are becoming an increasingly popular entertainment option for audiophiles and families alike; soundbars and streaming boxes, which were once considered “niche devices,” now make up $1.4 billion in sales. Unlike traditional movie theaters, home theaters can be customized to your individual preferences and accessed at any time, making them an excellent gathering place for playing video games, watching your favorite sports teams, or enjoying the latest movies.

For the best experience, you’ll want to pick high-performance home theater equipment that is appropriate for the size of your room, personal taste, and budget. Factors like video image size, audio performance, viewing-distance, electronics placement, the room arrangement, and lighting can all impact the final result. Because of this, it’s important that you carefully consider the type of home theater equipment you choose, including a projector, screen, surround-sound speakers, and even furniture.

To make the most of your home theater budget, we recommend using a professional home theater installation service to help you design, install, and calibrate your home theater.

Home Theater Installation FAQs

How long does it take to install a home theater?

How long it takes to install your home theater will vary widely depending on its size, complexity, and the products selected. Theaters with a high level of customization may have a longer lead time on equipment, like custom-built racks and room treatments, because they are made to order.

The complexity of the infrastructure can also be a factor in installation time. Some theaters, for example, may be able to use pre-existing wiring, while others will need to be retro-fitted. Home networks may also require work to support the addition of certain types of electronics.

Our experts will give a time estimate for your unique system when providing a quote for the installation.
