Introduction A working definition of a home theater could be stated as a television and video equipment designed to reproduce in the home the experience of being in a movie theater. The purpose of these instructions is to inform you how to build and assemble an entire home theater system, or at the very least help you understand and contract the process to a qualified builder. These instructions will provide categorized information pertaining to each component of a home theater along with photographs the help you along the way. In most all of higher end homes built today, there is a dedicated entertainment room or theater in the home plans. This will help you increase the value of your home should you ever decide to sell, and provide enjoyment for your entire family for many years. These instructions will assume that the reader has some basic knowledge of stereo equipment and will research on their own for specific components to purchase for their home theater. 1.1 Background The instructions will be separated into 3 parts consisting of Components, Installation/Placement of Those Components, and Mistakes to Avoid. Building a home theater does require a good amount of reading and research in the part selection process. These instructions will not cover the home theater component selection, but will go over all the basic theater components needed for a theater to be operational and how these components are installed. Being familiar with basic home theater components will provide you with more than enough knowledge base to perform these steps with whatever home theater brands you choose. As with any other type of electronic device, there are different manufacturers and different qualities of components. However, the basic concepts are followed by all manufacturers, so this set of instructions will apply to all manufacturers, no matter your brand choice. Figure 1 below is a picture of a typical base model home theater. Be sure to read through this entire instruction manual before proceeding to install any components.
