2 Common Types of Home Theater Surround Sound

Creating a movie theater experience in your own home has never been easier or more accessible for all homeowners. Home theaters can be scaled up or down to meet your unique needs, preferences, and budgets. What really makes it feel like you are in a professional movie theater is the quality of the immersive experience and that means you need great surround sound. With true surround sound, you will experience the movie or show exactly how it was filmed and edited to be experienced. Below, we take a closer look at the 2 most common types of home theater surround sound systems.

2 Common Types of Home Theater Surround Sound

● 5.1 Surround Sound

This is the most common type of surround sound system found in homes is 5.1 surround sound which consists of 5 speaker channels including 3 in front (left, right, and center) and 2 in the back of the room, as well as a subwoofer.

● 7.1 Surround Sound

A 7.1 surround sound system is the most comparable to a true movie theater experience because, in addition to everything that a 5.1 surround sound system has, there is the addition of overhead speakers. 7.1 surround sound systems create the most authentic, lossless sound while showcasing the truest surround sound effects.
