INEX Systems & Designs

“>There’s nothing like hosting a party and having music all around your house! The living room, kitchen, patio, all connected through a Smart home and a sound system of the highest fidelity. Or watching a movie or TVshow partnered up with sound that brings any scene to life. At INEX, we pride ourselves in creating unique sound atmospheres using the latest technology. 

Here are some ways to create the perfect immersive, crisp sound system for your home:

1. Choose Your Speaker Configuration
The first step in creating a surround sound system is deciding how many speakers you want to use and where to place them. The most common configurations are 5.1, 7.1, and 9.1. The numbers represent the number of speakers and subwoofersin the setup. A 5.1 system includes five speakers (front left, center, front right, rear left, and rear right) and one subwoofer. A 7.1 system adds two additional speakers (rear left surround and rear right surround), and a 9.1 system adds two height speakers (front left height and front right height).

2. Choose Your Speakers
Once you’ve decided on your speaker configuration, it’s time to choose your speakers. INEX Systems provides the latest tech speakers in all their different types, including bookshelf, floor-standing, in-wall, and on-wall speakers. The most important thing is to choose speakers that match your room’s size and your budget. You can mix and match brands and models to create a custom setup that meets your needs.

3. Choose Your Receiver
Your receiver is the heart of your surround sound system. It receives audio signals from your TV or other devices and distributes them to your speakers. When choosing a receiver, you’ll want to consider factors like the number of channels it supports, its power output, and the features it offers, such as Bluetooth connectivity, Wi-Fi, and support for different audio formats like Dolby Atmos or DTS:X. Our expert technicians will assist and guide you in the choice of your receiver.

4.  Set Up Your Speakers
Once we’ve chosen your speakers and receiver together, it’s time to set up your system. INEX technicians have familiarity in both small and big homes, and know how to set up a sound system according to each project. Typically, your front speakers should be placed at ear level and equidistant from your TV or projector screen. Your center speaker should be placed above or below your TV, and your surround speakers should be placed behind your seating area, ideally at ear level. Your subwoofer can be placed anywhere in the room, but it’s best to experiment with placement to find the spot that gives you the best sound.

5. Calibrate Your System
Now that we’ve set up your speakers, it’s time to calibrate your system. Most receivers come with an automatic setup feature that uses a microphone to adjust the sound levels and delay times for each speaker. INEX technicians will support your entire process, and guide you on how to manually adjust the settings to fine-tune your system to your liking.

Creating a surround sound system for your home by yourself can take some time and effort, that is why INEX is here, to give you that time to enjoy your new system. By choosing the right speaker configuration, speakers, receiver, and calibrating your system, we let you enjoy a fully immersive audio experience that will enhance your movie and music enjoyment for years to come.
