Sure, it’s important to choose great-sound speakers and amplifiers for a home theater. That’s the part of a theater system you can control. What you can’t control are the dips and peaks that each individual room tosses into the mix. Those acoustic anomalies can create ringing and annoying audio artifacts that even the most sophisticated loudspeakers can’t overcome.
So when this Connecticut family designated the lower level of their new house a home entertainment space, they signed on to EDG’s prescription for an acoustic overhaul as well. After all, their home theater wasn’t the conventional four-walled room with carefully selected dimensions. The back of the theater opens into an entertainment area with a table, bar and mingling room–hardly the most accommodating space for home theater sound. With high performance key to the vision for his theater, the owner was prepared to provide the sound backbone to make it happen.
