Home Theatre Sound System
Surround sound systems come in two main layouts; 5.1 or 7.1 speaker set up. This refers to the number of speakers to subwoofer ratio and the way in which the speakers are aligned throughout the room. For example, a 5.1 home sound system would consist of a left speaker, a centre speaker and a right speaker at the front of the room and two speakers at the back of the room. A 7.1 surround sound system would be in a similar format to the 5.1 system but includes 4 speakers at the rear instead of two.
5.1 is great for most small to medium setups as long as the speakers are in the right position and you would see little to no difference by adding the extra 2 speakers at the rear.
You will find there are many other emulated formats out on the market such as 9.2, 11.2, Dolby Pro Logic IIz and DTS height. Remember these formats are not natural and will change how the movie sounds. Most movies are recorded in 5.1 surround sound, so changing to these additional formats will take away from what the director intended for you to hear.
