Are you planning on building a home theater? If so, it will help to come up with a list of some key things that you'll need to create the home theater experience you've always wanted.
One of the biggest things you'll need to decide on is what type of screen you are going to use for your home theater. This means picking between a traditional television or a projector. Both of these choices can work great for your specific needs, such as trying to fill a very big wall on a budget or give you the best possible picture available.
However, each choice has additional accessories that you need. Don't forget about a projector ceiling mount or television wall mount, which depends on which type of screen you decide to use. If you use a projector, you'll also need to decide on mounting a screen to the wall or painting the wall, both of which can work well.
The type of speakers you use for your home theater will depend on the space you have and your budget. 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound speakers can give that home theater experience that you have dreamed of, but at a premium price when you factor in the speakers, wires, and audio receiver. You can work within your budget by getting a sound bar, which can even have wireless rear speaker and a subwoofer to give you great sound.
If you are going to be hooking up a lot of expensive devices for your home theater, you will need a surge protector to ensure that the devices survive a surge of electricity that can potentially damage these items. The main thing to remember is that there is a difference between surge protectors and power strips. Surge protectors will actually protect the electronic devices if there is a power fluctuation, while a power strip does not. You'll end up paying more for a surge protector, but it can save you a lot of money by not needing to replace expensive equipment.
Universal Remote Control
Don't clutter up your home theater by having a half dozen remotes that you need to juggle. Consider getting a universal remote control that will consolidate all of your remotes into a single remote. There are many smart remotes that will work with everything in your home theater, which even have an IR blaster to help reach all devices that you have plugged in.
