When creating a home theatre system, there are a number of basic requirements that you will need to achieve the authentic sights and sounds of a true cinema system. From the television screen or projector, to the playback system and even the seats, the one thing that will bring all of your work to fruition will be with the speaker system.
From a simple 2.1 Dolby Digital speaker systems all the way up to a 10.1 or enthusiast custom made system, the audio of your home theatre system plays a huge role in adding to the immersive nature of the entertainment you know and love.
The thing to note about home theatre speakers is that creating speaker cabinets, matching drivers and pairing up speaker cones to get the perfect resonance for the cabinet they are intended for is a very precise science. This means that many of the budget systems may very well have a nice range of speaker sounds, but may focus on the looks and aesthetics of the system, rather than the impeccable fidelity of some of the high end enthusiast speaker systems.
