We’re Not Talking About Speakers and Displays
When planning for a home theater installation, it’s easy to spend most of your time thinking about the display and speakers. After all, you can’t have a home theater without picture and sound. But these elements are only two of a multitude of others that make a home theater truly epic.
The truth is that even the biggest display and most powerful speakers can’t outperform a poor home theater design. If you want an awesome theater room in your Phoenix, AZ home, don’t overlook the following design elements that are critical to the comfort and performance of your home theater.

Even Just a Few Design Hiccups Can Significantly Knock Performance

But before you get started on your media room or home theater design, be sure to steer clear of the following common design mistakes if you really want a high-performance and immersive entertainment room. And if you begin to feel overwhelmed, don’t worry—our home theater experts are here to help.
This Sony Short Throw Projector Is Designed with Flexibility in Mind
When it comes to big-screen movie watching at home, it’s hard to beat the performance of a projector. However, not all homeowners have the space fora dedicated theater room. If you have a media room, a traditional long-throw projector may not fit well in there either. Not to mention that a wall or ceiling projector would likely distract from your interior design.
You can put these problems behind you when you choose a Sony short-throw projector for your Scottsdale, AZ home, which offers flexible placement and installation and can display a screen size up to 120 inches in diameter.

No matter how much you spend on a top-end speaker system for your home theater, equipping your designated space with premium acoustical treatments is critical.
