Home Theatre Design | Sydney Home Theater Systems

Need help to design a home theater? Home theatre system design can be a daunting task to anyone without an audio visual background. It is always best to use a home theatre specialist to help you get the best results within your budget even if you would like to do it yourself.

Any home theatre designer who helps with your home theatre room designs should be asking questions like:

- How many people will be sitting in your theatre room?
- What type of chairs will you be using (material, design, etc) and how big are they?
- How big is your room Height x Width x Depth?
- What shape is your room?
- What materials is your room made of?
- Have you allowed for sound isolation?
- Are we using a projector and screen or a LED/Plasma TV?

These are just a few basic questions that need to be asked before you consider what equipment to use in home theater designs. If your installer starts talking about types of speakers and product straight away, you should be concerned at their level of experience in designing home theatres.

At McCormick Concepts we ask all the above questions and more to ensure the best result for your custom home theater system. Our designers are always training themselves on the latest technology and working with industry professionals to ensure you have an unforgettable home theatre experience you can share with friends and family.

THX Reference Level

To listen to a movie the way the producer designed it, you need it to reach the THX reference level. THX reference level refers to the volume level which movie audio is recorded at. In the movie recording studio sounds are mixed and designed to be reproduced at 85dB. A home theatre system that has been designed properly should be able to produce 85dB as a reference with 20dB of headroom taking the peaks to 105dB. Doing this will ensure you hear the movie the way the movie directors intended it to be - that is at the sound level that will give the greatest impact.

Why is this important when designing my Home Theatre?

Without knowing how big your room is, how far you will be sitting from the speakers and more of the questions already mentioned you can’t pick amplification and speakers to ensure you reach THX Level!

With theatre room design there are many other items that need to be addressed. These are not always difficult or expensive but having experience dealing with them and understanding how they work can make a big difference to the final result.
