About the product

When it comes to home theater layout, the secret is location, location, location. When you’re planning your home theater, we will position your speakers, screen, and subwoofers for optimum performance.

THE GENERIC APPROACH

Failing to consider seat, speaker, screen, and sub placement can lead to real problems and ruin the performance of your home theater:

  • Neck ache from a screen placed too high
  • Lack of immersiveness from a screen that’s too small
  • Poor surround sound experience due to speakers in the wrong places
  • Different bass levels in every seat, some with too much, others not enough
  • Varying high frequencies across the seating area, because of speakers with narrow dispersion
  •  

    PROFESSIONAL HOME THEATER LAYOUT CONSULTING

    Acoustic Frontiers’ Home Theater room design service optimizes the placement of the speakers, seats, and screen.

    The process starts with a thorough evaluation of how you plan to use the room. We take your requirements and overlay them with industry best practices from CEDIA, Dolby, THX, and our years of experience to design the perfect theater for you. Our approach incorporates analysis across all aspects of theater layout:

  • Room dimensions
  • Seat placement
  • Sight line and riser
  • Speaker placement and coverage
  • Lateral and horizontal viewing angle
  • Entry and access requirements
  • For best results, we recommend combining the layout service with our other offerings: Audio Design, Video Design, Low Frequency Optimization, and Acoustic Treatment Design. Layout is best done in conjunction with Low Frequency Optimization, since this service incorporates analysis of seat and subwoofer placement to produce consistent seat-to-seat bass under 100Hz.

    If you want more than schematic layouts, we’re happy to help. We can provide construction level documentation, while some enthusiasts ask us to design their baffle/screen walls and risers.
